Raiders WR Michael Crabtree Questions 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's Desire

New Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree isn't worried about burning bridges with his former employer, the San Francisco 49ers.

In fact, Crabtree went so far on Saturday as to question his former teammate and QB Colin Kaepernick's desire -- pointing to it as one of the main reasons why he turned down a contract offer from the 49ers.

Via Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle:

“A lot of people don’t know that the Niners offered me a contract, I just didn’t take it,” Crabtree said. “I wanted a fresh start. It was more money too — the Niners offered me more money than anybody did — but business is business and I wanted to come to a team that really wanted and needed me.”

“I needed new scenery. It wasn’t for me,” Crabtree said. “I needed a quarterback that can deliver the ball, and that was hungry like I was.”

Crabtree is assimilating well into his new surroundings in Oakland by all accounts. But that doesn't mean he's not going to throw some jabs across the Bay. That's called going 3/4 Richard Sherman, right?
