Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that rookie WR Michael Crabtree is ending his holdout and has agreed to a 6 year deal with the San Francisco 49ers early this morning. Schefter also reports that the deal could void into a 5 year deal based on Crabtree’s performance.
Crabtree is expected to report to the team’s training facility today. The 49ers will seek a roster exemption from the league so that Crabtree won’t cost someone a roster spot immediately while he learns a portion of the playbook.
