His experience in San Francisco was not always positive, especially as it neared its end. He spoke about feeling disrespected, referring himself as a third-down receiver and a fourth option, after an overtime victory over New Orleans. The result was criticism about his attitude.
"That's just talk," Crabtree told ESPN. "I don't worry about talk. Some people say a lot of things, but until you get to know people, then you'll know for yourself. It's just talk. ... I was friends with my teammates."
Crabtree never fulfilled his potential with the Niners after being selected No. 10 overall in 2009. Injuries prevented him from displaying his explosiveness and he finished his six seasons there with 347 receptions for 4,237 yards and 26 touchdowns.

Wilhoite is an exclusive rights free agent, but GM Trent Baalke told the media he hopes to negotiate a long-term deal.
"We’re working on something with him as we speak … He’s kind of in a unique situation. He was kind of caught in a numbers deal," Baalke said, per SFGate.com.
After serving a nine-game suspension a year ago for violating the NFL's personal-conduct and substance-abuse policy, Smith returned and only tallied two sacks.
The time off followed by sub-par performances has ignited Smith on the practice field thus far, according to general manager Trent Baalke.

Baalke knows that Smith has an uphill climb in repairing his image. But while Smith attempts to do so, Baalke wanted the San Francisco media to know that Smith is doing what he can to improve ont he playing field.
“He’s got a great look in his eye,” Baalke said. “He’s doing well. I look forward to having you guys visit with him.”
Hyde was listed at 235 pounds during the 2014 season, which would mean Hyde has lost somewhere int he area of 15 pounds. Baalke said that Hyde hasn't been in the 220 range since his early days in college at Ohio State and that he's looking "extremely good."
Hyde will compete with Reggie Bush for starting tailback duties this preseason, though both should contribute quite a bit in the 49ers' backfield. Bush, 30, was signed by the 49ers after the Lions released him this offseason.

Davis has told the team website that he has placed a great emphasis this offseason on a strength and conditioning program. He had skipped that last year to concentrate on landing a new contract, but has since put aside that distraction.
"I'm here this year because I want to get better," he said. "I want to win. I want to develop some chemistry amongs my teammates and get to know guys. There are a lot of new guys here and you just never know when this game is over for you." He added that he wanted to give football "all I can give it."
Davis caught just 26 passes for a career-low 245 yards last year.
