NFL Rumors: 49ers, Michael Crabtree working on contract extension

It appears Jim Harbaugh and Colin Kaepernick aren’t the only members of the San Francisco 49ers organization who are in line for a new deal. According to Eric Branch, San Francisco has approached wide receiver Michael Crabtree about a contract extension.

“We’re constantly working with our guys that are becoming free agents to see what it’s going to take to extend them,” Baalke said. “Michael’s no different. He’s a darn good football player. A guy that we drafted. And as everyone in this room knows, we are always going to try to keep our own guys rather than go out in free agency and pay guys that haven’t invested themselves in this place like these guys have.”

The 49ers aren’t in a massive rush to get a deal done with Crabtree, so while there may be progression on a contract, it’s unlikely to be completed in the near future. That said, the two sides are looking to find a ballpark figure which will help them locate a hopeful middle ground.
