Football is back in, too, for Michael Crabtree(notes). After a long holdout, he finally signed a contract with the San Francisco 49ers. As it turns out, all they needed was a little help from M.C. Hammer. I actually have no idea what, if anything, M.C. Hammer contributed to negotiations, but he was in the room when the deal was reached. What qualifies Hammer to be there -- other than a mind to rhyme and two hype feet, of course -- I couldn't tell you. According to excellent 49ers beat reporter Matt Maiocco, though, Hammer's an old friend of Crabtree's agent, Eugene Parker. Maiocco tweeted several updates about Crabtree, Parker and Hammer on his Twitter page. He also posted a recap of his day attempting to cover the negotiations, including Hammer seeming offended when Maiocco asked him who he was. Hammer, don't hurt 'em! http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/sh...signs-with-49ers-thanks-to-M-C?urn=nfl,194474 This article is one pathetic article acting as if Hammer being there was a big help to getting Crabtree signed. It's the exact opposite actually. Hammer and Deion have been parts of the problem this entire time with giving Crabtree this horrible advice throughout this saga involving the greedy fool in Eugene Parker. These shady agents and third party counter parts like Deion and Hammer are going to end up getting a lot more players in trouble. Deion just got Dez Bryant in a ton of trouble and got him kicked out of coolege football in his Senior year hurting the season for OSU. If I was an OSU fan, I'd be ticked off beyond belief. As a college football fan, I'm ticked because I love watching Bryant on the field and it has sucked watching Crabtree waste his entire rookie year and seeing the 49ers get screwed like this. Man, I only hope that the Texans don't draft any agents in the near future that are represented by Eugene Parker. I sure as hell hope that there aren't any Longhorn players that Deion gets close to.
