Going into free agency, CSNBAYAREA.COM’s Matt Maiocco said, “The [San Francisco] 49ers are interested in re-signing [Michael] Crabtree, a source told CSNBayArea.com. But it remains to be seen how much interest Crabtree will receive on the open market when he is allowed to begin negotiating with other teams on March 7.”

So while the 49ers appear to remain interested in re-signing him, they didn’t see any reason not to allow Crabtree to test free agency. He wasn’t 100 percent in 2014 so he was unable to give the 49ers a reason to hurry up to lock him up. And just as the 49ers thought, the market for Crabtree has been slow, landing him in this article.

But lately, Crabtree has garnered mild interests as CBSSports’ Igor Mello said, “The Redskins have expressed some interest in free agent Michael Crabtree, though the Chargers are a “stronger possibility” as a landing spot for the veteran wide receiver, according to John Keim of ESPN. Mike Jones of the Washington Post added that Washington is not in serious pursuit of Crabtree.”

The best fit for Crabtree is to stay at home.
