49ers Free Agent Watch: Michael Crabtree

When the 49ers selected Michael Crabtree with the 10th pick in the 2009 draft, they envisioned the Texas Tech product being their number one receiver for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately for both parties, the marriage didn’t always work out as planned. Overall, Crabtree’s career in red and gold was a disappointment. In his six seasons […]

Golden Nuggets: Pass Catchers

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet Wide receivers have been a black hole for the Niners for awhile now. We thought the Raiders made a grave mistake a few drafts ago by picking Heyward-Bey before the best WR in college, Michael Crabtree. Michael took some time to develop, but he seemed to take off when Colin Kaepernick took over for Alex Smith. He became the #1 aerial threat. Vernon Davis had been the top pass catcher, but Kap seemed to trust Crabtree more. But after this last season, Michael Crabtree...

Golden Nuggets: Could we see Crabtree's replacement at the Combine?

Monday, February 23, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. It's been talked about extensively on this site, and most of us seem to think that there is no way Michael Crabtree (who is an unrestricted free agent) will be a 49er next season. Now we have some buzz coming from Jason Cole during the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, that the 49ers organization might be planning on letting Crabtree sign with another team and look to draft another wide receiver with a high pick. This is not really news to us, but it is nice to get some sort of...

Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant could end up with franchise tag

The NFL wide receiver market could be an interesting one this season. The two biggest names could be franchised, which opens the door for the next group of receivers. One of the more notable free agents on the San Francisco 49ers roster is wide receiver Michael Crabtree. The assumption of many is that he will not return in 2015. Trent Baalke has said the team will meet with Crabtree's agent this week in Indianapolis, so negotiations are at least happening in some sense. However, the market for Crabtree is a little difficult to figure out right now. The market will not be fully settled...

49ers free agents 2015: Predictions for Michael Crabtree

The San Francisco 49ers have 15 unrestricted free agents this season. We're taking a look and predicting what will happen with each of them. Today is wide receiver Michael Crabtree. The San Francisco 49ers have an entirely new coaching staff, and unclear identity going forward and 15 players hitting unrestricted free agency. There's also a pair of restricted free agents and two exclusive rights free agents this offseason. A lot has already changed, but despite San Francisco's struggles this past season, I think retaining as much of the roster as possible is key to success going forward. But...

Michael Crabtree removes 49ers from Twitter bio

Michael Crabtree heads into free agency for the first time this March. Will we see him re-sign with the 49ers? If we want to read into his Twitter activity, maybe not. Of course, it is just Twitter. Thursday morning, someone tweeted at me mentioning that Michael Crabtree had removed a mention of the 49ers from his bio. If you go to his Twitter page, his bio shows up as this: I had not paid much attention to his bio previously, so I poked around in the Web archive. Here is what his bio looked like prior to the end of the season: Back in August, there were a couple reports related...
