Former 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree decided to take a couple shots at his former team and quarterback. In an interview with The Chronicle, the man who only "plays ball" did his best Richard Sherman impression and ran his mouth.
He claims he rejected a 49ers' offer to take less money to play in Oakland.
“A lot of people don’t know that the Niners offered me a contract, I just didn’t take it,”. “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.”
“With all the stuff going on on the other side, it just feels so good to be on this side,” Crabtree said. “Just play ball and don’t worry about too much. Just play ball.”When asked about the 49ers’ off-season troubles:
“All I can do is just focus on me, I don’t really get into all that stuff,” he said. “They said all types of stuff about me that was false. They said I was this type of guy or that type of guy. I’m the same dude, man. I don’t bother nobody. … I play ball, that’s what I do.”He then questioned Kaepernick's hunger and abilities:
“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.”Unfortunately the 49ers won't get to see Crabtree on the field this season.
