Could Crabtree be looking for Mike Williams money next year?

Get it done
An $8 million a year deal for Crab to re-sign would be a good deal for both sides. I'd expect him to want more - who wouldn't - but something in the $10 - 12 million range would put him in the top echelon of WRs, which I don't believe he's at right now.

Hopefully he'll understand his value dropped a bit due to his injury, but I doubt he'll be here after next year. He's gonna want too much money and he's only had one solid non-injured year. It's not worth the 10 million he's gonna want.

Not after the injury no. Let him walk, or limp outta here, or take a decent team-friendly extension.
Load it up with bonuses too. Play X amount, get paid X amount. Keep the guaranteed cost down.

Agree. With Kaepernick at quarterback that should help out with him wanting to stay here for a decent deal. Guess we will see.

Plenty good, but not indispensable. Let em walk... Focus resources on Aldon and presumably Kaep after the season.

Let harbaugh make that decision, he's pretty good at that...

Uh. like sure thing and stuff, dood. Thanks for putting me back in reality. I was so sure I was going to be making that call.. and stuff.
We will really see if Crabtree is a money hungry diva or if he wants to win when this plays out, I'm thinking his innury will diminish his value and we extend him and we don't break the bank doing it. Fingers crossed

I think the injury will force Crabtree to walk. Crabtree has only had one 1k season, plus he has had a fair number of injuries. That will cause the 49ers to value him less. Crabtree will probably look at this 1k season as the floor and that he will achieve even greater numbers in the future (plus never get injured). I see the 2 sides starting very far apart in numbers, and not able to come together.

sounds pretty much dead on to me. AB has pointed out that the 2014 cap isn't as bad as people seem to think. I believe we get Kaep, Aldon and Iupati under contract and probably somebody worth some $ at CB but not Crabs.
Is Eugene Parker still Crabtree's agent? I think Kaep has the potential to be one of the two or three top quarterbacks sooner rather than later. If you take a look at the elite group, Brady, both Manning's, Bree's, one thing in common is each makes the receiver. Look at Brady, all his receivers are gone, yet does anyone think he won't connect with what he has. The better the 49er receivers play during pre-season and regular season the more his value drops. As soon as Kaep became a starter Crabtree turned a corner and was on the verge of elite status. In the NFL anyone can be replaced.

I don't think it has anything to do with being smart. Frankly, Baalke never wanted to pay Dashon in the first place, heck I would have left too. I think Crab is quite aware of what the 9ers will and will not do. It won't bother him a bit, if they pay he will stay, if they don't he will walk, is just the business side of football that's all.
Well, if winning isn't his top priority then he should be
If Josh Morgan can command what he got coming off an injury...we might have to say goodbye to this stud.

Perhaps could have been worded better. My point was... we are likely to be spreading the ball around. I think Crabtree would rather go to a team that pays him more and will prioritize him more in their offense (to give him more pass attempts his way and therefore bigger numbers)

With the running backs and OLine the niners have Crabtree may opt for a purely passing team. He'll likely never have the stats with SF...or SC...or whatever we call them now. But Baalke and Harbaugh will continue to bring in WRs until they have a strong group...please let it be this year!!
I just don't see how we will keep Crabtree unless he fires Eugene Parker and negotiates his contract with a new agent.

Yeah good point man.
