Michael Crabtree has finally signed with the 49ers. It's a six year deal that can be changed to five if he meets certain performance clauses. The rest of the terms haven't been disclosed yet.
Crabtree's signing can be a good or bad thing depending on his attitude. If he gets this "I'm better than where I was picked" thought out of his mind, the players will respect him and be more accepting of him. He needs to move forward from this holdout and prove why he wanted so much money. Singletary will quickly put him in check if he steps out of line. Just ask Vernon Davis.
He will be a great asset to the team because they don't have a real threat at the receiver position. His size and speed are great and if he's fully recovered for his foot injury, he can be an immediate asset. I don't think he'll play until sometime in November. He has to learn the
playbook and get back into football shape. He'll be used sparingly at first until Singletary trusts him enough to give him more plays.
