[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.

49ers add WR DeVonta Smith in latest PFF mock draft

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,

Sheil Kapadia of The Athletic made 10 bold NFL predictions for this offseason, and two of them involved the San Francisco 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo has to be the odds-on favorite to be the team's starting quarterback in 2021, but fans and the media continue to keep an eye on what's happening in Houston with Deshaun Watson. After all, if anything can tempt Kyle Shanahan to move on from Garoppolo, it might be the thought of adding an exciting playmaker like Watson to his offense. Kapadia admits that several things could happen in Houston that keep Watson from being traded. Maybe the two sides reconcile and move forward. Maybe the star quarterback decides to push

49ers TE George Kittle identifies where he can improve this offseason

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle can do it all. He excels as both a receiver and a run-blocker, making him the complete package. Still, there is always room for improvement. According to Pro Football Focus, only six of Kittle's 63 targets this past season went for 20-or-more yards. The All-Pro tight end hauled in four of those pass attempts for 131 yards. To his credit, one was determined to be uncatchable, leaving Kittle with just one drop. He would love to create more opportunities as a downfield target, though. Kittle spoke with Chris Simms of NBC Sports last week and was asked what he hopes to work on this offseason to improve his game in 2021. "I would like to get better at the longer-distanced routes, some longer-distanced third-down
