Michael Crabtree will not engage with Richard Sherman until their teams meet on the field.
Crabtree, the 49ers wide receiver who has a long history with Sherman, declined to get into it when he was asked this week about Sherman’s recent comments about his personal animosity toward Crabtree. Instead, Crabtree said he would rather focus on preparing to face Sherman on the field.
“I don’t get into talking about these guys. I concentrate on football. It’s my life. I don’t have too much to prove when it comes to talking on TV. I’m a baller,” Crabtree told ESPN.
Whether Crabtree and Sherman talk about each other or not, when they play each other it will be must-see TV. The first of their two regular-season meetings will be on Thanksgiving night in San Francisco. We know Sherman will have plenty to say, but Crabtree will try to let his play do the talking.
