    Parker is also representing Tyson Jackson, and is demanding Matt Ryan money.

        Is there any compensation for a team that drafted a player refusing to sign and re-entering the draft?

          Assuming it is the agent that is asking for Top 3 money, then screw him. You don't get Top 3 money when you're the 10th overall pick and you're not even a quarterback to ask for a premium. **** anyone that stupid.

          But hey, maybe he's asking for a reasonable contract and the 49ers are lowballing him. I doubt it, but we don't truly know.

          Part of me actually hopes that the Crabtree camp does hold out for next year's Draft, because he will lose so many millions if he does so as I doubt he would even be a Top 20 draft pick next year. Just to teach some of these players and agents a lesson they need to learn. It's bad enough the Top 15 draft picks are so overpaid.

          And some of these kids need to understand that if the agent isn't working in the player's best interest, instead trying to get the best deal that he can show clients in the future, then the kid should get a different agent and not have a finite and always-tenuous pro career screwed with at the start.

            I haven't heard what the agent is asking, however I think either way... He didn't want any of this to become public. It just puts more pressure on the situation and everyone sides with the 49ers on this one. It does seem like Crabtree and his entire camp lack any concept of slotting rookie picks. From the way things are looking, I'd say Maybin and Monroe have to sign first to see any movement. We all know he'll end up signing but it looks like Crabtree will be the early favorite for longest holdout.

            The thing for agents though is like you said... Say the guy you're representing wants to just go ahead and sign for the same as the guy a slot below him to get things over with. Next Spring when the incoming draft class is trying to find representation, all the other agents are going to use when recruiting against this agent would be that he only got the guy a deal equal to the slot below him. They're going to assure the client they can get them the most money. While I have no doubt agents only act in their own interests, they have to really in order to survive. Otherwise their clients stop pouring in.

            If a player wants to avoid the whole agent issue and just get signed, they really need to just get a lawyer to analyze the contract. If you want to sign for less than market value, there's no use in even signing an agent because for a rookie contract they simply MUST get top value.

              Eugene Parker has not made any offer.

              This is from Matt Barrows, a Niners beat writer:
              "Crabtree has NOT threatened to hold out the whole season, according to the team. Though his adviser, according to ESPN, says he is"

              another beat writer, Matt Maiocco:
              "Michael Crabtree's agent, Eugene Parker, has not verbally threatened 49ers with a holdout for the entire season, a well-placed source said."

                I bet the agent wouldn't mind going public with the situation if that was truly the case.

                    If true, then the adviser is a flippin' idiot who has weakened the position of the person he is advising.

                        Well, no one wants the draft pick to hold out for a year. That's bad for both sides.

                          Well lets remember that we haven't actually heard Crabtree say anything this is all his agent, and trainer. I would really like to hear how he feels about this.

How unaware of the climate in the league is this guy? The day of the me first diva is over! He's got to realize that right now, Pac Man Jones is out of the league, a new team says the don't want Vick every day, nobody wants to trade for Brandon Marshall or Braylon Edwards, T.O. is on his fourth team now on a one year deal. Teams are fed up with these kinds of attitudes and they are not willing to pander to egos any more. They are delusional if they think they're going to get the 49ers to blink on this.
                            T.O. actually made money by being cut, and I guarantee if Braylon Edwards was on the market he'd see lots of money too.

                            Teams don't want to give up draft picks for guys they can sign in a year. That's the way it's been for years. There has been nothing to indicate so far this year that owners are tightening their wallets for top 10 picks.


                            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.
