[Updated] PFT’s report of ex-49ers WR Michael Crabtree signing with Cardinals is false

Aug 5, 2019 at 3:57 PM--


Update: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Arizona Cardinals have not and do not plan to sign Michael Crabtreee after working him out on Monday.


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who initially reported the signing, has admitted to the blunder.

The original story is below.



Who would have thought you might, just might, get to see Richard Sherman versus Michael Crabtree again? Crabtree is back in the division. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals, according to Pro Football Talk.


Okay, it is doubtful Crabtree will be the Cardinal's top receiver so we probably won't actually get to see Sherman go against him again. Oh, and let's not forget that cornerback Aqib Talib is in the division too.

The former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver spent last season with the Baltimore Ravens after three seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

Crabtree had 54 catches for 607 receiving yards with three touchdowns in 2018. That was good enough to rank third on the Ravens in receiving last year. His last 1,000-plus-yard season came in 2016 when he registered 89 catches for 1,003 yards with eight touchdowns for the Raiders.

The 49ers made Crabtree the No. 10 overall pick in 2009, and he spent his first six NFL seasons in San Francisco. Crabtree has recorded 633 receptions for 7,477 yards with 54 touchdowns in his 10 NFL seasons.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

We don't know what practices will look like when NFL training camps kick off across the league later this month. The NFL is still trying to figure out how to take precautions and limit interactions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, it is difficult to do that and prepare for an NFL season. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) seeks to limit activities that increase the risk of transmission of the virus, and that includes a request that there be no 11-on-11 activities during practices, according to a report from Pro Football Talk. The players union also wants to limit practices and group activities in the days leading up to games,

Fred Warner's contract named the 49ers' most team-friendly by Bleacher Report

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are big on building through the draft, and that can lead to several team-friendly contracts for some young up-and-coming NFL stars. Now and then, you miss on a high draft pick, though. The Reuben Foster selection in 2017 forced the 49ers to spend big on Kwon Alexander when the team was forced to part ways with the troubled young linebacker. The emergence of another young linebacker may have made up for that, though. San Francisco made Fred Warner a third-round draft pick a year after the Foster selection, and that rookie contract has been named the team's best-value by Bleacher Report's Brent
