Crabtree Likley to Sit Out Preseason Games

It looks like first-round pick Michael Crabtree is going to sit out the preseason games for the Niners:

A highly placed NFL source said the contract stalemate between the 49ers and first-round draft pick Michael Crabtree is likely to drag on until at least shortly before the season opener at Arizona. In other words: Don’t expect to see Crabtree during any of the 49ers’ four exhibition games. The NFL source told the Mercury News that no breakthrough is expected until the days leading up to the 49ers’ Sept. 13 game against the Cardinals. At that point, a continued absence by Crabtree would jeopardize potential game checks. The 49ers’ front office declined comment Wednesday. Crabtree’s agent, Eugene Parker, has said he will not negotiate through the media.
