After a contract stalemate that has lasted four weeks into the NFL season, the 49ers have finally reached a deal with their first-round pick.

Michael Crabtree and the team agreed to a six-year deal early this morning, according to team sources. He and his agent had a face-to-face meeting Tuesday afternoon with 49ers vice president of football operations Paraag Marathe in the Bay area.

The team source told "Crabtree finally signed."

The deal could void to five years if Crabtree has two very good years among his first four, otherwise he'll make just $4 million in the sixth year.
