According to Maiocco, the 49ers remain interested in re-signing Crabtree, but he reportedly prefers to play for a team that places a greater emphasis on the passing game.
Maiocco mentions that if Crabtree were to return to San Francisco next year, he likely wouldn’t be an every-down receiver now that they’ve brought in Torrey Smith.
As of now, Crabtree has taken just one visit to Miami to meet with the Dolphins. Beyond that, there has been very little buzz surround the former first-round pick.
Crabtree, 27, appeared in all 16 games and caught 68 passes for 698 yards receiving and four touchdowns last year. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 95 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
