The future of San Francisco 49ers WR (and impending free agent) Michael Crabtree has been cloudy over the past few months, but it's starting to look more and more like the 2009 first-round draft pick's time with the team is coming to an end.
Crabtree removed all references to the 49ers from his personal Twitter account, which formerly included pictures of him in 49ers gear and the words 'Now a 49er!' in the bio section. This doesn't guarantee that Crabtree will be leaving the team in free agency, but it definitely doesn't make it more likely that he sticks around.
Last summer, it sounded like Crabtree and the 49ers were close to agreeing to terms on a new contract, but those talks ground to a halt at some point before the start of the regular season. The team may have been waiting to see how he looked after an injury limited him to five games in 2013, but his results in 2014 clearly weren't enough to tempt the team into pushing a deal through. Crabtree caught 68 passes for just 698 receiving yards and four touchdowns, and he ended the year outside of the Top 60 in receiving yardage.
Things can change in a hurry in the world of NFL contract talks, but we wouldn't hold our breath for a new deal for Crabtree.
