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 identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

By David Bonilla
May 16

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers. No one knows what is happening with



I'm not worried about 49ers' Trey Lance...and you shouldn't be either

By Marc Adams

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade

Albert Breer on 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo: 'I don't believe the plan right now is to keep him'

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo won't be in attendance as the San Francisco 49ers kick off organized team activities this week. He is still recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8 and won't be medically cleared to throw again until late next month or early July. There has been speculation that the 49ers might be willing to hold onto Garoppolo this season. The team's inability to trade their injured quarterback and unwillingness to release the player outright sparked that speculation. However, Albert Breer of The MMQB believes San Francisco still intends to offload Garoppolo before the start of the season. "San Francisco, for what it's worth, has had an open line of communication with Garoppolo's camp the last few months, and both sides are
