There seems to be ongoing issues with Deion Sanders and the issues with WR Michael Crabtree, and his agent, Eugene Parker:
With the Michael Crabtree contract finally signed, Deion Sanders opened up Sunday about his connection to the 49ers’ first-round draft pick and the prolonged negotiations. Sanders said on the NFL Network, where he works as an analyst, that he was “very confused” that there are now tampering allegations surrounding Crabtree. On Sept. 4, Sanders created a stir when he said on the air that two teams were willing to trade for Crabtree and pay him a huge contract. The 49ers since have filed tampering charges against the New York Jets. On Sunday, however, Sanders said he had simply repeated information from agent Eugene Parker, who had heard it from the 49ers themselves.
“Eugene Parker told me. That was my source,” Sanders said. “Eugene Parker told me that the San Francisco 49ers told him there were two teams that would trade for Crabtree, but guess what? (The 49ers were) not going to trade him.” Sanders, a Parker client during his playing days as well as a friend of Crabtree’s, said the NFL has not contacted him during its investigation into tampering charges. If the league does, “I would tell the truth, like I’m doing now,” Sanders said. “The truth wins.”
