    NFL.com Wire Reports
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver Michael Crabtree have agreed to a six-year contract after several months of difficult negotiations.

    Team spokesman Bob Lange confirmed the deal in a text message to The Associated Press early Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed.

    NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that if Crabtree meets certain performance goals in two of the first four years of the deal, the sixth year would void.

    The 10th overall draft pick sat out offseason minicamps and organized team activities while recovering from a foot injury, but was a regular presence at the Niners' training facility. He was the last pick from this year's draft to sign.

    Crabtree and his agent, Eugene Parker, sat down with three top 49ers officials Tuesday to work through his contract impasse. The former Texas Tech star had balked at an offer of five years and $20 million, instead seeking money comparable to higher draft picks.

    The first-place 49ers are off to a 3-1 start without Crabtree, but their offense ranks 28th in the NFL. San Francisco's passing game also ranks 28th and none of the team's wide receivers rank among the league's top 50 in receptions.

    The 49ers needed to have signed Crabtree by Nov. 17 for him to have remained eligible to play this season

    49ers would demolish the Chargers head to head...... why? They are glass eaters while the chargers are grass eaters. Even Scott McKillop is a better linebacker than any of the girlie man LBs on this team. We could have drafted him instead of shitrell Johnson and we also could have drafted Jasper Brinkley who is going to be a hell of a player stuck behind a veteran LB corps on Minnesota.

    Primarily thanks to the glass-eater mentality of Mike Singletary. The main reason why Vernon Davis is beginning to emerge as a player instead of a poser.

    I'm not at all sure that Crabtree will be able to handle this type of environment.

    Crabtree Saga Ends

    Michael Crabtree has finally signed with the 49ers. The best team on the west coast(in terms of record as of week 4) just got better. Now they have a superstar receiver... After they get a decent quaterback they are gonna be very hard to beat!!

    weigh in on the crabtree saga!
