Michael Crabtree wants to play this season -- he just wants fair market value on his rookie contract, according to a source close to Crabtree.
The wide receiver's agent, Eugene Parker, said everything is quiet in talks with the team. An ESPN report on Thursday quoted David Wells, Crabtree's cousin and adviser, as saying Crabtree is willing to sit out the 2009 season if not appeased. Parker said that wasn't true and that information is not coming from him.
"No comments have been made to ESPN or anyone else," Said Parker.
