[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.

Michael Lombardi convinced 49ers altered draft plans due to outside pressure

Many felt the San Francisco 49ers were targeting Mac Jones of Alabama when they traded up to the No. 3 overall pick on March 26. They were wrong. Trey Lance of North Dakota State was the target, per general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Jones was a safety net behind Lance and Justin Fields of Ohio State. At least, that is what we have been told since the draft. Shanahan started doing a deep dive into Lance's film in January, and the more he watched, the more he got excited. During his vacation in Cabo San Lucas, he spent time reviewing the young quarterback's film, sending his notes to Lynch, sometimes in the middle of the night. Shanahan liked Jones too and was fine drafting him at No. 12 — their pre-trade draft slot. But Lance, on the

Better safe than sorry, right? Dale Arnold of NESN reports that the New England Patriots are working on a new contract for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, Garoppolo is still with the San Francisco 49ers, and this news doesn't necessarily mean that a deal is imminent. If accurate, it just means that the Patriots are getting everything in order -- just in case a trade happens. It could also mean that the Patriots believe the 49ers are likely to seek a trade. What I've been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new
