Crabs? Really? What makes anyone think he won't demand #1 money as WR and want $10mil/yr minimum? I sure don't. I expect this to be Crabtree holdout #2. Hopefully he won't do it like Vernon, but after his contract yr, Crabs is adios. I just don't see baalke paying him top dollar as a WR, which is exactly what Crabs will want. Guys want to get paid and they just think they are worth more than everyone else does. Someone WILL pay crabs $10 + mil, but not us.
Nobody will offer Crabs a 10mil per year contract based off what he has done so far.
Personally I think he wants to stay, I also think that he realizes that the time to show up is now.
Nobody on here doubts his talent, they doubt his consistency (injury, production)
If we win the SB, and crabs has a 100rec, 1200 yard, 10+td season I will still doubt he gets 10 a year.
That being said, if Crabs gets hurt again and has a mediocre season, he will probably leave because Baalke won't offer him a ridiculous contract that it will take to keep him here
On the other side, if he kills it then he probably will get the money he wants and we will sign him
Either way its a win-win for us
