Do you really think the Niners should bring in a guy who wants $14 million a year? Really? With a stockpile of 14 or more draft picks? And, if they do that, what do you think they have to pay Crabtree when his contract comes up in the next season? Please. It just doesn't make sense. I'll be shocked if they do something like that.
This, discussing Harvin is absolutely obtuse. It makes no sense, this team can't afford to pay him the amount he's looking for. The only reason Minnesota, regardless of their claims, has taken out feelers on his trade value is because they don't want to be stuck with an overpriced contract as he fights through injury issue after injury issue. You can't take on a guy who will get paid $10-15 million a year and then hope to give Crabtree, Kaepernick, Aldon, Iupati and Davis their money too, or have the temerity to ask ANY of them to offer up a hometown discount when you've brought in an outside guy and paid him bigtime.
The 49ers need cheaper solutions at WR through the draft.
