Wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who has a close relationship with NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders, went to Twitter on Tuesday to deny any knowledge of the 49ers' locker room controversy that Sanders helped fuel.
“I don't know what people are talking about with Mr Deion...,” Crabtree wrote. “But we good over here!”
After showing highlights of the 49ers’ 26-21 victory over the previously unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles, Sanders said the 49ers have turned against coach Jim Harbaugh.

“They want him out,” Sanders said. “They’re not on the same page.”
“I really want to know if they’re really playing for the head coach. I got a question with that. Are you really down with your head coach, San Francisco 49ers?" Sanders said. "Because the way it looks and what I’m hearing, you’re really not down for your head coach. And that’s a problem.
"They really got some problems that we hear rumblings. We all know people inside locker rooms."
Sanders definitely knows Crabtree very well. He served as an advisor to Crabtree, and was the first to report that Crabtree was ending his protracted rookie holdout in October of 2009.
In reference to the obvious connection with Crabtree, Sanders predictably wrote Monday on Twitter that Crabtree was not the person who supplied him with his information.
Sanders wrote: “To many that this may concern @KingCrab15 is not my source. My sources wears uniforms,suits and ties. #Truth.”
