Source: If no deal is made, Crabtree will re-enter draft
League sources said that another reason the signings have been slow is because the Raiders messed up the process by giving Heyward-Bey an incredibly generous 20-percent raise over what the No. 7 pick received last year.
But the sources with whom I've spoken believe the 49ers' offer is approximately an 18-percent raise from what the Patriots awarded linebacker Jerod Mayo, who was chosen in the same spot last year. That would mean Crabtree has balked at approximately $16.2 million in guaranteed money on a five-year deal or $19.5 million for six years.
I guess Raji got permission from Crabtree to sign his contract. Seeing as though all the players that have been holding out aren't holding out for more money they're just holding out because Michael Crabtree is.
To prove what he already told you. Crabtree has always had a gauge for his contract. He's getting a 18% increase in value from last year's number 10 selection.
Yes, in theory every player has a guage on their contract - but not a ceiling. Just ask Mark Sanchez and Darrius Heyward-Bey. If Crabtree is getting an 18% increase over last years #10 pick then why hasn't he signed yet? Man the common sense on this board is really lacking.
