The talk on the San Francisco 49ers' quest to find a replacement for WR Michael Crabtree has been ongoing since the Texas Tech product tore his Achilles tendon in spring practices. Crabtree is expected to be sidelined for a substantial portion of the season, though there are some who believe that he may be able to return for the stretch run and playoffs. In the meantime, the Niners need to find another outside starter opposite Anquan Boldin.
