San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree hopes that he can have a full and healthy offseason for the first time in his four-year NFL career.
“I don’t want to jinx myself, but I’m feeling amazing,” Crabtree said. 49ers GM Trent Baalke sounded equally positive, saying “he’s been working tirelessly. He’s been involved with the entire process this offseason.”
The tenth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Crabtree infamously held out in his first season with the team and also had a foot injury, then missing a large chunk of training camp the following year due to a neck strain. And of course, nobody had a full offseason last year, courtesy of the lockout.
Crabtree was the 49ers’ leading receiver in 2011, with 72 receptions for 874 yards and 4 touchdowns.
