Niners drop Crabtree tampering charge vs. Jets

The 49ers formally dropped their tampering case against the Jets regarding rookie WR Michael Crabtree, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The 49ers had asked the NFL to investigate whether the Jets had tampered with Crabtree while he was an unsigned draftee, believing New York had acted improperly, according to a league source.

The 49ers selected Crabtree with the No. 10 overall pick in the April draft. However, Crabtree held out, missing training camp and five regular-season games, and didn’t sign a contract with San Francisco until October.
