The San Francisco 49ers can rest easy knowing Michael Crabtree will be available and clear of any charges when the team takes on the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl. Crabtree was part of an investigation into sexual assault allegations, but he will not be charged.
According to an Associated Press report, Crabtree will not face any charges. He was cooperative with the police's investigation into the allegations of sexual assault. Crabtree was at the hotel where the alleged incident took place, but he was not involved.
The rest of the world is still focused on the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other in this year's Super Bowl, but Crabtree's investigation could have been big news. Crabtree gives Colin Kaepernick another option down the field. If he was not available, the 49ers would have seen their offense severely limited.
Crabtree is in his fourth NFL season. In that time, Crabtree has averaged 12.9 yards per reception. He has 21 touchdowns in his career including the nine he scored this past season.
