Michael Crabtree Reportedly Travels to S.F. to Renew Negotiations With 49ers

In the span of about three weeks, first-round draft pick Michael Crabtree has gone from reportedly sitting out the season and re-entering next year's draft to now flying from Tampa to S.F. to meet with the 49ers.

Yesterday, Deion Sanders dropped plenty of not-so-subtle hints that something may be in the works between the two sides. Today, we have this news from ESPN:

Crabtree left for San Francisco from Tampa, Fla., on Monday to renew contract talks with the 49ers, according to multiple sources.

Crabtree was unavailable for comment. The Dallas native and former Texas Tech receiver has been training in Tampa the past few weeks.

Eugene Parker, Crabtree's agent, is scheduled to arrive in San Francisco on Tuesday. Parker declined comment when reached.

Something tells us this sudden turn around might have something to do with the 49ers' 3-1 start. He can play for a winner and make millions? Sounds better than working out in Tampa, living off Subway endorsements.

The 49ers still have until November 17th to sign Crabtree in order for him to play this season.
