Should Reese consider offering a trade for Crabtree?

Post  Big_Pete on Mon Aug 10, 2009 5:42 am

Michael Crabtree is holding out and is reportedly willing to reenter the draft next year if need be.

One things is definate; for whatever reason many NFL teams seem reluctant to pay WRs the big money contracts.

Much like vets, this is pretty much the only bargaining chip they have. Of course all players want to be on the field. But at the same time this is a business as well.

IF Crabtree is willing to follow through on his holdout threats, is it worth the 49ers trading his rights to another team?


Assuming a trade was a possibility, should Reese should make a bid for him?

It would certainly cost our 2010 first round pick, which will likely be late in the round.
It could likely also include a decent young player or two (we do have guys like Manningham, Moss, Tyree, Hagan, Whimper, Blackburn, Wilkinson etc who could potentially be included on any deal) and/or a conditional future draft pick.

Not big on trading for a rookie who hasn't proved anything yet in the nfl.
I still have high hopes for Barden, Nicks, and Manningham who all seem to be having a pretty good camp so far.

I have little doubt that Crabtree is a decent talent.

I am happy either way. Crabtree is likely to be a heap better than any reciever we could get next year

I think the WR group now is potentially very good, if we added Crabtree it would be potentially a genuinely great passing game.

The speed element at WR seems to be the biggest change in the team; it seems to have added a whole new dimension to our offense. Eli seems to be adjusting really well and we could have a genuinely explosive passing game to team with our power running game.
