WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Spread) - The market for former 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree has been slow to develop but he may have an interested suitor in the Redskins.
ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports that Washington has expressed interest in Crabtree but the Chargers could be a stronger possibility for the 27-year-old receiver. The former Texas Tech product tore his Achilles in 2013 and hasn't looked like the same productive player from the second half of the 2012 season. Thus, Crabtree's market has been slow to develop for a former top 10 overall pick.
In related news, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco said that Crabtree has no interest in re-signing with the 49ers, who recently released Stevie Johnson and who could have an interest in bringing back their former first-round pick.
But Crabtree ostensibly wants to go to a team that will put more of an emphasis on the passing game and the Niners made Torrey Smith their defacto No. 1 by signing him to a big money free agent deal.
