Michael Crabtree: Possible trade?


34 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

The San Francisco 49ers may be in cap trouble.  In 2014, their projected cap number is scheduled to be under the cap at $121.6M (projected cap is about $126M).  However, Colin Kaepernick is scheduled to be a free agent after 2014, with just a $1.6M cap figure scheduled for '14 currently.  They're about to pay him handsomely. 

 

We already know the 49ers will likely let go of UFA Anquan Bodin.  What we DON'T know is just what they'll do with Michael Crabtree.  A free agent after the 2014 season, the 49ers would save $4M by moving him now. 

 

Though health issues resulted him in only catching 19 passes in '13, and just yesterday he just got bit**-slapped by Richard Sherman, Jim Harbaugh did the 49ers no favors by calling him the "best pass-catcher of all-time".  He had over 1100 yards and 9 TD's in '12.  He's going to need to get paid eventually with money the 49ers simply aren't going to have. 

 

Would it be wise to try to make a play for him?  If so what compensation would you be willing to send to the 49ers?

he came up small end of last season

he came up small end of this season

 

pass on a trade a huge contract

 

he's obviously a huge upgrade over what we have, just sayin he aint worth what it will cost

 

I'd rather draft a big redzone target who can actually catch the ball on a corner fade at the end of a playoff game

Yeah, he'll certainly want to be paid like a WR1 so its not ideal.

He played well throughout the playoffs last year.

He got big time "alligator arms" on that slant with about a minute to go on that final drive, when he was about to be crushed by Chancellor I believe. Now would most get alligator arms with that freaking human head hunter coming mach 80 at them, sure, but it still doesnt look good, and makes you look soft.

I think Crabtree is a high end number 2 guy or a low end number one and hes going to want cash I don't think we should make a play for him because the Niners will probably want at least a number 2 and I would have much rather given up a 1 for Gordon. 18th pick in the draft for Josh Gordon ? I make that trade in a heartbeat since Gordon is what ?? 23 ?

Not sure that they would have taken a 1st for Gordon. But anyway, if we're going to trade a 2 for Crabtree then we're probably better off just using that pick on a receiver that we wouldn't have to pay as much as Crabtree. Probably a better return on investment.

If the Jets were one guy like Crabtree away from Super Bowl or bust,  I'd say yeah why not.  But they aren't even close to being that good and have a lot of holes.     And he's going to want way to much money.  Winning teams seem to dump the high salary guys as much as they can these days.   

 

 I view the Jets kind of  like the Bucs from last year.   Nowhere near as good as people think, a QB situation that is very unknown,  and to spend a boatload of money on one or two players could be disaster.   The Bucs did that with Revis and a few others and they still sucked.    If the Jets trade away the farm for a guy like Crabtree, pay him big bucks, pay some other FA top bucks, and Geno isn't any good,  they'll be that 5-11 Bucs team.         

 

 They need to find a lot of young talent who can take them to the future, not some expensive guys that aren't as good as what they'll be paid.  Crabtree is better than what they have now, but he won't be worth what he wants. And he sure won't be worth what the 49ers will ask.

Great post. Well stated.

Michael Crabtree is an amazing WR.  What's wrong with you guys?

 

But, they aren't going to trade away Kaepernick's favorite target, especially if they have to part ways with Boldin this off-season.

Boldin is too old.  We're not in "win-now" mode like the Ravens or 49ers were when Boldin went on deep playoff runs with them.  We need a WR in free agency who will be a WR1 or WR2 for an extensive period.

with shaky qb play i suspect we will see investment up and down the oline, including a solid TE blocker type and maybe a mid-tier "name" RB. that is how you hide a qb liability. welcome to a repeat of the style of play from rex's first two years (minus the results, I fear).

To Crabtree's credit, he was going up against this person! I just love how ridiculous this guy is.

He is the love-child of Bart Scott + Chad Ochocinco + TO.

 

I like him for the simple fact that he helps establish which are the uppity white football fans on message boards.
