Michael Crabtree takes shots at 49ers, Kaepernick
As if the 49ers haven’t taken enough of a beating already this past offseason with half the team getting arrested and the other half retiring. Former 49ers WR Michael Crabtree who took his talents to the Oakland Raiders had some choice words about his former team and QB.
“A lot of people don’t know that the Niners offered me a contract, I just didn’t take it,”. “I wanted a fresh start. It was more money too — the Niners offered me more money than anybody did — but business is business and I wanted to come to a team that really wanted and needed me.”
“With all the stuff going on on the other side, it just feels so good to be on this side,” Crabtree said. “Just play ball and don’t worry about too much. Just play ball.”
Crabtree insists he doesn’t pay much attention to all of the 49ers’ defections, retirements and arrests. He is not very convincing.
“All I can do is just focus on me, I don’t really get into all that stuff,” he said. “They said all types of stuff about me that was false. They said I was this type of guy or that type of guy. I’m the same dude, man. I don’t bother nobody. … I play ball, that’s what I do.”
Comments about Kaepernick:
“I needed new scenery. It wasn’t for me,” Crabtree said. “I needed a quarterback that can deliver the ball, and that was hungry like I was.”
WHOOOOOOOOOO, so basically according to Crabtree, Kaep can’t deliver the ball and isn’t hungry. Unfortunately, the 49ers & Raiders don’t play each other this year.
