SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Coach Mike Singletary says the San Francisco 49ers have discussed changing their offer to top draft pick Michael Crabtree.
Whether the franchise has reached out to the former Texas Tech star formally, Singletary wasn't sure. He has asked the brass to keep him completely out of it so he can focus on the 53 players he has on the active roster. The 49ers beat the reigning NFC champion Arizona Cardinals 20-16 on Sunday.
Crabtree, the 10th overall pick in April's draft who turned 22 on Monday, hasn't accepted the 49ers' offer for approximately five years and $20 million with a reported $16 million guaranteed -- instead seeking money comparable to the higher picks.
