A league source tells us that agent Eugene Parker and 49ers V.P. of football operations Paraag Marathe continue to meet regarding a contract for receiver Michael Crabtree, the sole remaining unsigned player from the 2009 draft.
It’s unknown whether the two sides are close to a deal. We’ve previously heard that progress has been made.
Regardless of how it all shakes out, someone will come out of this thing looking bad. The 49ers have made it clear that they won’t be paying more than the slotted value for the tenth overall pick; Parker has made it clear that he wants much more than Crabtree’s draft position would dictate.
