49ers sent out a mass email this afternoon to teams around the league to try and trade safety Taylor Mays.
Another in the long line of players that the Texans must trade up to get, according to some on this board.

I am a USC fan and I didn't call for that.

Taylor is a freak and a hitter, he just can't cover with a damn.

If I needed a special teams goon, he would be the first guy I called.

Not so much for a ballhawk safety

I would trade a 6th, maybe a 5th for him.

But I'm a fan of the guy. Back up safety and special teams guy.

Mays played mainly specials teams last season, but did start six games after coach Mike Singletary benched then-starter Michael Lewis. Mays recorded 38 tackles, two pass defenses and scored one touchdown by catching a blocked punt.

His contract isnt too intimidating. Hes due just over $400,000 this season, $490,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013 which is the last year of his contract.

Where Mays struggles is in pass coverage. He plays physical, at 6'3" and 230 pounds, he is a force in the backfield.


i pulled this from a story

I kind of hope the Ravens pick up Mays though. Pollard and Mays together at safety would be terrible in coverage but would be hella-fun to watch. They might even kill a small WR if they both hit him at the same time. Maybe Ted Ginn Jr, he's expendable.

Former Bills S Donte Whitner did NOT go to Cincinnati. He agreed to a 3-year, $11.75 million deal with $4 million gtd with the 49ERS.

We've been down that road before. No thanks. Works for a little bit, then teams scheme against it and expose it for its inherent weaknesses.

Pollard is a short-yardage guy. When the offense is on its own end of the field, facing a 3rd and short...you put a SS like Pollard in there to police the area.

If that offense is moving down the field, and getting into scoring range, a SS like Pollard is dead meat most of the time. Always looking for the big hit, getting caught looking in the wrong places, and too slow to recover and make up for lost ground.

Mays is in 2nd year big hitter say he is very fast too maybe change of scene is what he needs if he is on the cheap we could develope him and use him on special teams. He would be a BEAST as a gunner.

Antwaun Molden was a great gunner 'till the Titans blew up his ankle.
Andre Davis is gone, so the Texans are gunnerless.

Seems like a good option to me, but I expect the Texans to pass.

I just don't know how we could find the money to do it.

I mean, we just had three guys re-structure JUST to get us under the cap.

I think we're done, unless some guys get injured and we sign guys in place of them. Or we cut guys and sign replacements.

That's cheap, and we don't really have a strong safety any more. He may be a good pick up for a 5th or less. Can we trade Slaton for him? That would be stupendous!

Didn't catch that

But I'd bring him in for special teams a lone. If he was able to play in any defensive sets that'd be a bonus.
