Niners free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree is visiting with the Dolphins today, according to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). Crabtree, he notes, would be a great addition to an otherwise young receiving corp. This marks Crabtree’s first reported visit of the offseason. On Tuesday night, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported that the market for the outspoken wide receiver was rather weak.
Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter) notes that Crabtree was the No. 1 player on the Jets’ board when he came out in 2009. Now, former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is the head decision maker in Miami, so this could be a rather perfect marriage.
In 2014, Crabtree appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers, hauling in 68 catches for 698 yards and four scores. While San Francisco was undoubtedly delighted to see Crabtree play a full season after missing the bulk of 2013, those numbers didn’t match his best production in 2012, when he had 85 grabs for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns.
