After allegations, Crabtree not seen arriving with team in Atlanta

Jan 18, 2013 at 8:41 PM--


Earlier tonight, it was reported that 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was interviewed by San Francisco police about allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the city following the team's 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

The incident reportedly occurred on January 13, the morning following the team's victory.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reported on Twitter that Crabtree was not seen with the team as they arrived in Atlanta.


In response, Mindi Bach of CSN Bay Area reported on Twitter that Crabtree was indeed seen at the team facility earlier today.


According to the 49ers, Crabtree did make the trip to Atlanta and the team is aware of the investigation. Trent Baalke, the team's general manager, issued the following statement:

"We are aware of the allegation against Michael and understand that he has fully cooperated with authorities ... The 49ers take such matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time as the legal process is ongoing. Additional requests for comment should be directed to Michael's attorney."

The incident is being investigated by the Special Victims Unit. The detectives interviewed Crabtree with his lawyer present and it has been said that he has been very cooperative.

Crabtree, who had nine receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers, is expected to play on Sunday in the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Update

Here is a photo of Crabtree arriving at the hotel in Atlanta. His arrival was missed by all of the 49ers beat writers that were there waiting for the team. Crabtree may have simply used a different entrance to avoid questions.

In the end, it may come down to what the San Francisco 49ers — or any other interested NFL team — can offer the Houston Texans for quarterback Deshaun Watson. Yes, Watson does have a no-trade clause in his contract. If he pushed the Texans to trade him, the quarterback would at least have the power to approve of his destination. The divide between Watson and the Texans has made for an interesting offseason so far, at least for the teams not participating in postseason play. The young quarterback would be considered an upgrade for most of the teams watching the playoffs from home. San Francisco 49ers fans have to wonder what kind of magic Kyle Shanahan might dial up with

Everyone has an opinion on what quarterback Deshaun Watson should do. He doesn't seem to want to be with the Houston Texans after feeling disrespected by the team's brass and not seeing eye-to-eye on several organizational decisions. It has been a recipe for some compelling offseason discussion, with fanbases across the league wondering what their team's offense might look like with Watson at the helm. During The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, cornerback Richard Sherman, who co-hosts the show, shared his opinion on what Watson should do, and it isn't joining the San Francisco 49ers.
