Deion says Crabtree feels he's being lowballed

Mercury News - [Full Article]

Deion Sanders, who helped Michael Crabtree prepare for the draft, said Friday that the 49ers' first-round pick is willing to skip the 2009 season over a contract impasse.

"Why would you settle for $20 million when you feel like you can get $40 million," Sanders said. "That's the problem."
Speaking on the NFL Network, Sanders said two teams approached the 49ers about trading for the rights to the Texas Tech receiver. Sanders said the unnamed teams "will pay this kid, and he knows that."

A 49ers spokesman said: "Those discussions never happened."
The deadline to trade an unsigned draft pick was Aug. 14.
