  • Source: If no deal is made, Crabtree will re-enter draft

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...e-enter-draft/

    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.
    My thoughts: big time bluff. If he sits out and re-enters in 2010, he's going to lose a TON of money.

    Edit- There is conflict on whether the agent made this demand or not

    Eugene Parker denies this

    http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2009/08/06/m...entry-in-2010/

    Parker said that wasn't true and that information is not coming from him.

    "No comments have been made to ESPN or anyone else," Parker told FanHouse Thursday via text message.

    A source in the 49ers organization said San Francisco didn't know anything about the ESPN report.

    Plus, a 49ers source tells me his agent, Eugene Parker, has never made any such threat to the team.
    http://blog.pressdemocrat.com/49ers/...s-morning.html

    PFT still claims it was the agent who made the request

    Three sources have now said that Parker made the threat.

    One source says that Parker specifically tied a season-long holdout to a contract that exceeds the package that the Raiders gave to Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh overall pick in round one.

      And then he does what for this year? Just works out on his own? Yea right. Besides I've never understood the whole "I was picked 10th but want to be paid like the 3rd pick".


      You weren't picked 3rd though, you were drafted where you went, which was 10th so that's how you should be paid. I think this is pre-mature though, Maybin has been holding out longer, and there are still quite a bit of guys unsigned in the top 15.

        I hope he does that, as an example to other what happens when you re-enter the NFL draft.

          Let him sit out from football. He is stuck then, can't play competitively in college, and not playing the NFL. If he plans to go that route, he better bust his butt, so that he can excel in everything come the offseason.

            The last two guys that spent time away from football then entered the draft, didn't fare very well.

            Mo Clarett and Mike Williams.

                Ridiculous hardball posturing here. If he reenters next year, he'll get taken late mid/late first round most likely and he'll get somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million guaranteed instead of instead of $20-$22 million guaranteed that he would get this year. It would be pretty stupid to give up $10-12 million in the bank for some sense of foolish pride, holding out for an extra $2-$3 million from the 49ers. He has no leverage whatsoever and his agent is trying to convince the 49ers otherwise. Stupid, sign the contract and go to work Michael.

                His other option is to sign with a UFL team and destroy that league for a spell then go to the NFL, a la Herschel Walker. If I was Crabtree or his agent I would be flirting with that possibility, seeing what UFL owners would be willing to pay for a recognizable college superstar for a year or two rather than just sitting out.

                    It would be pretty funny though if he does go through with it.

                      He already has a Subway deal so he probably doesnt have to worry about going hungry.

                        well. this is the definition of a lose-lose situation. 9ers would lose a first round pick. and Crabby would lose millions.

                        Also, if the 49ers tell this diva and his useless agent to f off and re-enter the draft, i will count them as one of my favorite teams. Then we can all watch the dude sit out a year, and when he's drafted next year in the 2nd or 3rd round we can do the math of how much money he lost.

                        and, really. i almost feel sorry for Crabtree here. ya know he is likely just a pawn in this game. the agent needs to be drawn and quartered though. Crap like this could kill Crabtree's career before it starts. even if things get resolved.

                          I am thinking that Parker promised him top 5 money when he signed with him to be his agent, but then rumors said that Crabs was a "diva." Rather than try to prove those rumors wrong, Parker did nothing. Crabtree was probably convinced by what Parker and others had been telling him, about how awesome he is and etc., and now feels that he deserves more than the 10th pick is usually slotted.

                          Parker ****** up in not trying to put down the "diva" rumors, and Crabtree let himself be convinced he's worth more than what he's going to get. The Niners have all the leverage in this situation, and I'm sure he'll sign sooner than what the situation projects. I do like that the team, and coach Singletary, have said they are not concerned with Crabtree's absence, and instead talk about Josh Morgan's progresion.

                            If I was Crabtree right now, I would beg the 49ers to put there best offer on the table right now, sign it and move on. How unaware of the climate in the league is this guy? The day of the me first diva is over! He's got to realize that right now, Pac Man Jones is out of the league, a new team says the don't want Vick every day, nobody wants to trade for Brandon Marshall or Braylon Edwards, T.O. is on his fourth team now on a one year deal. Teams are fed up with these kinds of attitudes and they are not willing to pander to egos any more. They are delusional if they think they're going to get the 49ers to blink on this.

                              They already made an offer but Parker hasnt made his demands known to the team, all he's said is that he wants more than they are offering. So, who ******* knows, at this point.
