49ers and Crabtree agree to contract; Crabtree to report on Wednesday

Oct 7, 2009 at 6:41 AM--


After lengthy contract talks between Michael Crabtree, his representatives, and team officials on Tuesday night, the rookie wide receiver agreed to terms of a contract early Wednesday morning.

Without Crabtree, San Francisco is 3-1 and leading the NFC West. However, head coach Mike Singletary has repeatedly commented that the team would welcome their 10th overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft if a deal were struck.

The contract is reportedly a six year deal worth roughly the same amount as what was originally offered by the team. The contract is voidable to five years should certain incentives be met. If Crabtree fails to reach the incentives, the sixth year pays him only $4 million.

The talks last night broke a three week silence by Crabtree and his agent Eugene Parker. Crabtree is expected to report to the team's training facility Wednesday.

The holdout by the young receiver has brought about much criticism by analysts and fans. However, according to polls and questionnaires, most 49ers fans appear to be ready to welcome Crabtree with open arms.

Bleacher Report recently named five teams that it felt were the most overrated heading into the 2021 season. These are the squads that won't live up to expectations, according to contributor Maurice Moton. The San Francisco 49ers were on his list. They are joined by the Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, and New England Patriots. The Niners dealt with a lot of adversity last season. All NFL teams did after being forced to navigate through a global pandemic.

"Jimmy's our guy, and so is Trey": 49ers' Mike McGlinchey on the Garoppolo-Lance dynamic

Mike McGlinchey has an abundance of confidence in John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan's ability to do what is right for the San Francisco 49ers, even if that involved some tough decisions. All of the offensive tackle's teammates feel the same way. The general manager and head coach duo had a tough decision this offseason. They like quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and know they can win with him. However, he has missed 23 games over the past three seasons, prompting the 49ers to make a move for the future. That's what they did on March 26, trading up to the No. 3 overall pick with the intention of drafting a young quarterback. That ended up being Trey Lance of North Dakota State. "I think [drafting Lance] is a great thing for us, but I also know that they're comfortable



Richard Sherman weighs in on 49ers having Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance

One of the many reasons the San Francisco 49ers were appealing to Richard Sherman when the veteran cornerback signed with the team in 2018 was Jimmy Garoppolo. The quarterback was coming off an impressive five-game run after being traded from the New England Patriots, and the 49ers had just re-signed him to a long-term deal. It looked like the team had solidified its quarterback position. Three years later, Garoppolo's eventual replacement is on the roster. Recent injury-plagued seasons forced San Francisco to plan for the future — post-Garoppolo. Last week, the team drafted Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Garoppolo remains on the roster and is part of the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season. He will be the team's starting quarterback, allowing
