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.

According to PointsBet Sportsbook, the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams are tied for the best odds (+190) to win the NFC West in 2021. They are followed by the Seattle Seahawks (+260) and the Arizona Cardinals (+600). How competitive is the division? No one would be shocked to see any of the four teams finish on top. It will make divisional matchups very significant. Chris Simms feels the 49ers should stand alone as the favorite to win the NFC West, though. The NBC Sports analyst is high on the team's chances of being very competitive this season, no matter who takes snaps at quarterback. You can argue that, right now, each of the other teams has an advantage when it comes to the most important position in sports. "It's not all about the quarterback,"



Tom Brady shocked one NFL team passed on him, stuck with another QB

The San Francisco 49ers looked into the possibility of adding Tom Brady last offseason. Who knows how the season might have unfolded had they pursued the future Hall of Fame quarterback? It's doubtful Brady would have been able to single-handedly change the team's injury misfortunes. San Francisco was reportedly Brady's top choice for a landing spot last year. The quarterback signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and went on to win yet another Super Bowl. San Francisco opted to stick with Jimmy Garoppolo, who missed 10 games last season. The 49ers finished 6-10. Brady was a possibility to replace Garoppolo last year. This year, the 49ers have a succession plan

NFL Network had a little bit of a roundtable discussion during NFL Total Access, asking which NFC team has the best chance to challenge the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021. DeAngelo Hall felt it could be a team out of the NFC West. No, not the San Francisco 49ers. Hall picked the division-rival Los Angeles Rams, who improved their quarterback situation this offseason with the addition of Matthew Stafford and still have some great components on defense. However, NFL Media analytics expert Cynthia Frelund believes the 49ers, not the Rams, are both the best team in the NFC West and the team most likely to compete with the Buccaneers. "Well, I like the Rams, and I love Aaron Donald. I think he's the best



49ers' Nick Bosa, Fred Warner named to NFL.com's All-Under-25 Team

San Francisco 49ers defenders Nick Bosa and Fred Warner were recently named to Pro Football Focus' top 25 players under the age of 25. Now, both have been named to NFL.com's "2021 All-Under-25 Team," compiled by Nick Shook. Bosa is coming off a season that saw the young defensive end miss 14 games. He suffered a torn ACL during Week 2, landing on injured reserve. "Like Saquon Barkley (who did not make the honorary roster), Bosa missed all but two games of the 2020 season with an ACL tear," wrote Shook, "but his Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign and sky-high potential still stand as a stronger case than others considered (i.e., Brian Burns).
