The San Jose Mercury News reports today that Hall of Famer Jim Brown says Mike Crabtree needs to get straight and join the Niners:
Jim Brown, who made $85,000 in the final season of his Hall of Fame career, has a message for the 49ers’ first-round draft pick: “Mr. Crabtree, get your butt in camp,” he said. In an interview with Sirius XM radio, Brown told host Joe Madison that Michael Crabtree’s current stance is “totally ridiculous” and said that an athlete’s career is measured by the way he plays, not the contract he signs. “You don’t realize that your legacy will be based upon how you perform, not how much money you made?” Brown said on the show.
