The Press Democrat’s Matt Maiocco has a bird’s eye view of the negotiations between Michael Crabtree, his agent and the 49ers — sort of. With that bird’s eye view, he’s seeing some impressive sights, too:
Michael Crabtree erased any doubts I have about his speed, as he made an impressive exit from the hotel where negotiations are taking place today.
This presumable leaves 49ers chief negotiator Paraag Marathe and Crabtree’s agent, Eugene Parker, alone to hammer out the deal that could deliver him to Mike Singletary’s team.
Crabtree saw me and CSN’s Mindi Bach in the hotel where the meeting is taking place. He made a nice move to cut through a restaurant, and then sprinted — sprinted, I tell ya — out the back door and around the front of the hotel to an awaiting black SUV for the getaway.
Let the record show . . . his foot is just fine. (His hearing might not be so good though, as my shouts went unanswered.)
