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.

ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus provided updated landing spots for the top 50 impending free agents. You might remember the analytics site predicting in January that offensive tackle Trent Williams would return to the San Francisco 49ers on a four-year, $80 million deal with $62.5 million in guarantees. Nothing has changed since then. That remains exactly what Treash predicts for Williams, who is listed as Pro Football Focus' fifth-highest ranked impending free agent. "San Francisco is going to have to work some magic this offseason," explains Treash. "They are projected to have just around $13.5 million in cap space available, but star tackle Trent Williams

What might things look like for the San Francisco 49ers after the first wave of free agency? Time will tell, but one possible scenario was laid forth by sports financial analysis website Spotrac earlier this week. Spotrac operator Michael Ginnitti posted a long list of free agency projections on February 17, which included guesses for salaries and destinations of the top impending free agents across the NFL. Ginnitti included two 49ers among his guesses -- offensive tackle Trent Williams and cornerback Richard Sherman -- while also projecting three other free agents to wind up in San Francisco. Ginnitti's projections on Williams and Sherman aren't



Seahawks LB and impending free agent K.J. Wright sees no issues with 49ers

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per OverTheCap.com. The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they
