This Crab Can Climb A Tree ... And Stay There

Let me get this straight. A wide receiver wants more money than another wide receiver who was taken before him in the NFL Draft because his advisor (who is related to him) had him first wide receiver to be taken in his mock draft?

Look, Michael Crabtree. Darrius Heyward-Bey was picked before you. He gets more money than you. That's how the 'fair market value' of the NFL Draft pay scale works. And I got news for you. You don't want to re-enter the draft in 2010. Who in their right mind will waste a first-round pick on a guy who has already been proven to be a pain in the butt to get signed? And with no CBA in place in 2010, whacha gonna do if the deal gets done before then and a rookie cap gets slammed on the 2010 Draft?

This is what happens when "family members" (see leeches) get into these kids' heads and start convincing them that they are getting the raw end of the deal. Newsflash Crabtree: You sign your name and you are a millionaire playing a kid's game for a living.

How about you catch a pass in a preseason game before whining about being underpaid?

Is it too early to label him another prima donna wide receiver?

Didn't think so.
