I'd like to see us talk to Kaesviharn...he'd be risky since he hasn't been a starter and played mostly in the nickel, but his 6 picks show he's good vs. the pass. Gandy would obviously be nice too.

You forgot part of the sentence... While we sit on our royal keisters THANKS TO A LACK OF CAP ROOM DUE TO THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION, ...

At least a 1'st year expansion team has a clean slate, Kubes and Smith didn't have that luxury, they have to clear the decks of overpaid under performers. As much as it hurts to say it, it probably is not gonna happen for another year or two yet. But then again, think how good it will feel when it does.

Agreed. But, with the PR hit we took last year & the anti-Carr backlash, I was just hoping they'd do something right away. It doesn't have to be a big name, just some promising young talent.

We just need to continue having good drafts--the QB situating notwithstanding.

If Casselry had been here he would have given Denver whatever they asked for in draft picks if his love for Carr was set aside. Its actually nice to see that Kubiak and Smith know the value of draft picks and have confidence they can make an impact throught the draft. Instead of handing them out for garbage like P-suc. Considering how well the current admin did in the last draft I have to belive they can.

There are a few good 'ball players on that list that would look good in our uniform, whether we go after any is another thing. I'd be happy with even 2 signings out of that lot for the right $$$ where we actually do need help (isn't that nearly every position atm?)...

The 49ers are now approximately $38.2 million under the salary cap. That does not take into account the contract extensions for Bryant Young and Moran Norris. Young's new contract is expected to be finalized by Thursday, while Norris' extension will not be formalized until Friday.

win 8 or 9 games. Or we may eventually get Plummer, but only win 3 or 4 games. Ke sera sera.

Default Re: While we sit on our royal keisters, a lot of FA's are disappearing. However......

The earliest signings always seem to be when the teams vastly overpay a player because they don't want them to leave town and get a better offer somewhere else. Remember Todd Wade? Look how upset everyone was last season when the team let David Givens leave town and sign with the Titans. The team offered him $17.5 and he wanted $25 million. Even before the knee injury he wasn't doing anything. With patience will come better fits. There will still be players to be released in the upcoming months. The Patriots (until this season), the Colts, the Steelers, the Broncos are all top AFC teams that rarely make big splashes in the free agent pool. They continually restock their team with talent in the draft and supplement that with an occasional free agent.
