According to the CSN Bay Area, the team is willing to pay Crabtree $10 million per season. They believe that’s his “absolute ceiling” for a new deal.

In his young career, he has just one 1,000-yard season in five years. He also has never surpassed nine touchdowns in a season.

He has started 22 games in 63 regular season games. Many attribute his lack of stats due to the 49ers run-heavy offense.

While he isn’t going to hurt a team deep, he has have excellent route running skills and sure hands. He’s the 49ers No. 1 receiver.

He is scheduled to make $3.5 million in the final year of his contract.
