    Former 49ers cornerback and KPIX game analyst Eric Davis said that wide receiver Michael Crabtree is willing to sit out the season. Speaking to Greg Papa of Chronicle Live on Wednesday, Davis said, "They feel as should they should get more than where they are slotted and that's going to be difficult to do. There's a certain system in place and the 49ers organization is going to stick to that system. It's going to be difficult to get anything worked out." Davis knows people in Crabtree's camp, which might be his old teammate Deion Sanders, who's close to Crabtree. Davis wasn't sure if the continued holdout was motivated by Crabtree or his agent, Eugene Parker, but he did say this: "Eugene Parker is not the football player. Eugene Parker works for Michael Crabtree, the key phrase here is 'works for,'" Davis said. Also Davis believes Crabtree might go through with his holdout threats. "When I first heard of this situation, I said, 'No way.' But after talking to people within his camp after getting to know a little bit more about his background, he's in a position, he seems to be strong enough, he seems to have a circle around him that are comfortable with him sitting out. It could actually happen. I don't know how it's all going to play out, but there's a possibility."

    An idiot. What does he think will happen if he sits out. He'll go in the 2nd round next season, and be paid less.

    So if Deion is in his "inner circle" (dumbass,) is he going to be paying for this kid to live during the offseason?

    If I'm the 49ers,I say heck it. Pull all offers off the table and let the little snitch sit. What would be even better is if they draft him in the 3rd rd next season and let him sit some more.

    it was laughable at first now i just feel bad for the niners. They invested there future in that pick they still could of taken Maclin or somebody who would of been in camp by now that just sux. Wouldnt it be funny if they Raiders end up Drafting him Next year it be histerical. Because I dont see anybody else who would draft him.
