Deion Sanders, as it turns out, was onto something.
Sanders said on NFLN’s GameDay Final, “Crabtree may be on his way. I’m just sayin’.”
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Crabtree left the Tampa earlier today to travel to San Francisco to renew talks with the 49ers.
Per a league source, that’s news to the 49ers. As of the early afternoon Pacific time, the team had heard nothing from Crabtree or his agent, Eugene Parker.
So, apparently, Parker’s current strategy is to entice the Niners to call him up via Deion’s hint and a leak of Crabtree’s itinerary, in the hopes of getting more than what the team put on the table some three months ago.
As we reported earlier today, the 49ers have still had no communications with Crabtree, the team was unaffected by Deion’s statements, and the franchise is feeling no pressure to get him signed.
Advantage, San Fran.
