Post Micheal Crabtree is sad

Little Mikey Crabtree is not working out very well under Mike Singletary. In fact, he may be making an idiotic move of colossal proportions if we can believe anything PFT says.

Source: Parker tells Niners that Crabtree will re-enter draft

Posted by Mike Florio on August 6, 2009 11:52 AM ET

The situation in San Francisco between the 49ers and receiver Michael Crabtree is quickly going from bad to worse.

Per a league source, agent Eugene Parker is telling the 49ers that Crabtree will sit out the season re-enter the draft in 2010, unless the team gives Crabtree what he wants.

Of course, what Crabtree specifically wants isn't known, since Parker (as multiple sources tell us) still hasn't made a proposal.

There's also a growing chorus of league insiders who are speaking out against the widely-believed effort by Parker to blow up the slotting process with Crabtree. Teams obviously would contend that the unwritten rules of draft-pick negotiation ritual should be honored; however, some of the agents who arguably would benefit from the introduction of chaos privately have described efforts to blow the curve as "inappropriate" and "unacceptable" and "wrong."

And if Crabtree opts to re-enter the draft next year, the current thinking is that he wouldn't be the first receiver drafted. For now, the guy who is regarded as likely to be the first wideout (and possibly the first overall pick) is Illinois junior Arrelious Benn.

Then again, if Crabtree is picked any higher than No. 10 after having a chance to engage in pre-draft workouts, he'd likely end up with more money than the slotting process currently would pay.

After, of course, waiting a year to get it.

After this:

Either San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary remains just as intimidating as he was during his Hall of Fame playing days or maybe rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree might be a bit sensitive to criticism.


Or perhaps it's a combination of both factors because Singletary said he nearly made the first-round draft pick cry after criticizing him sharply for running pass patterns prior to being granted medical clearance following his foot surgery, according to Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle.


Here's Singletary's version of his conversation with Crabtree, the former Texas Tech star drafted 10th overall.


"'I've got nothing against you," Singletary said. "I'm not angry or anything. I just want you to know, you have to do everything the doctors want you to do so that you can get better.' I said, 'I'm not worried about what you can do.' I said, 'I know. We drafted you at No. 10. We know what you can do.


"We just want to make sure that when you come out here, you're ready to go.' So, he's done the things that he needs to do, spending a lot of time with [wide receivers coach Jerry] Sullivan. I know Jerry is excited about what he's seeing as well."


It doesn't sound like enough to make someone so upset that they're nearly bursting into tears but, then again, it doesn't specify how loud, colorful, and wide-eyed that Singletary might have been during the exchange.
Per the report, Crabtree is on track to be ready by training camp.

Dumb, dumb move on Crabtree's part. And another reason why there needs to be a clear cut rookie payscale in the NFL. This crap about he should have been drafted higher and therefore paid more is completely insane.

No kidding. I don't even understand how a reasonable person can make such a claim with a straight face. It's this type of crap that gives agents a bad name.

I am starting an anti PFT movement. Sadly, I am all alone, because people just won't stop posting is as a reference.

Play for the 2nd contract, Crabtree. I think Crabtree is the best receiver that came out this year, but you sure as hell wont make more money next year. You're not going to be a 1st round pick.

Play for the second contract?! All he has to do is sign the same as Orakpo and he is a MULTI MILLIONAIRE. If he really wanted to hurt them he would sign, then claim his foot hurts and go laughing all the way to the bank!

This can't be true because if it is, then this is the worst move since the Ricky Williams Master P contract. 20 Mil. in hand is worth more than 30 Mil. in the bush. His grandma, baby mama, and mama would keek his behind. Not kick, but keek.

I think its funny that Singletarry was a 2nd round pick and rookie holdout because he felt he should have been paid as if he were drafted higher.

Oh, I never believe anything from them either, but this article/topic is so hilarious. If it IS true...craziness. I'm with you though...not saying I am believing it...just sharing it. I'd never use them for a source to support me in a debate or discussion.

If it's another typical, par-for-the-course tabloid bunch of crap, then it's just another normal PFT article.

Great topic for discussion either way, the rookie pay scales and contracting needs reformed desperately.

Orakpo arguably should have been drafted higher, but you didn't hear his agent crying for Top-10 money. A system that rewards a top draft pick like Matthew Stafford a larger signing bonus than that given to a Super Bowl winning QB (Eli Manning) is a joke. The time has come for veterans to lean on the new NFLPA rep to lobby hard to limit rookie pay in the next CBA.

Re: Micheal Crabtree is sad

Somebody please clarify who this "Wells" character is? Parker is his agent right? What is Wells's authority on the situation?

Nevermind this wasn't visible the first time I looked at it.
