49ers miss deadline to trade Crabtree
Team president Jed York acknowledged that the deadline passed Friday for the franchise to trade the unsigned holdout receiver, the 10th overall draft pick who wants money comparable to the higher picks. Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, the No. 7 pick, signed a five-year contract late last month that will guarantee him at least $23.5 million.
York said before the 49ers' exhibition opener against the Denver Broncos that the team would get it done, but he's just unsure how soon.
