Niners, Crabtree come to terms
Former Texas Tech star and current 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree has finally signed a contract with his pro team after an extended holdout. Crabtree signed a six-year deal worth upwards of $32 million which could become $40 million if the receiver plays up to his potential. In his sophomore season at Texas Tech, Crabtree caught 97 passes for 1,165 yards.
Edwards headed to New York
One team’s season is in shambles while the other only needs a few missing pieces to become one of the NFL’s elites. The Cleveland Browns made a deal with the New York Jets that will send receiver Braylon Edwards to New York for two players and a couple of draft picks. Edwards, who was recently accused of punching a friend of LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub, has had his share of dropped passes and off-the-field issues. However, he may provide the Jets with the deep threat they need to make the playoffs.
