CSN Bay Area doesn't believe a long-term extension for Michael Crabtree is among the 49ers' top priorities.
Crabtree, 26 in September, is signed through the 2014 season, so it's not a rush to get him a new deal. But beat writer Matt Maiocco thinks new deals for Colin Kaepernick, OLB Aldon Smith, LG Mike Iupati, and RT Anthony Davis are higher priorities than Crabtree. All five players are scheduled to hit free agency in 2015. If Crabtree continues to play like he did with Kaepernick last season, it could change San Francisco's thinking.
