According to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, rookie receiver Michael Crabtree is set to renew negotiations with the 49ers.
First-round draft pick Michael Crabtree left for San Francisco from Tampa, Fla., on Monday to renew contract talks with the 49ers, according to multiple sources.
Crabtree was unavailable for comment. The Dallas native and former Texas Tech receiver has been training in Tampa the past few weeks in Tampa.
Eugene Parker, Crabtree’s agent, is scheduled to arrive in San Francisco on Tuesday. Parker declined comment when reached.
The 22-year-old Crabtree is seeking money comparable to higher picks and has turned down the 49ers’ offer for approximately five years and $20 million, with a reported $16 million guaranteed.
My guess is Michael’s endorsment money is starting to run out, not to mention that 3-1 record without Crabtree can’t make him feel to good.
