In response to rxmsg's comment:
Woohoo.... yawn !!! Another "value" signing ?? Is this even worthy news or post?
He wont make the team, Jones wont make the team, Jenkins won't make the team.
Edelman is hurt, Hernandez s comming off shoulder auyrgery, Gronkwoski is having issues with his forearm, Amendola will get hurt in mini-camp. Boyce has a broken foot. Dobson must have some unkown ailement that we dont know about yet... it's a prerequesite as a BB draftee of FA signing.
I feel bad for Brady... they're wasting is last years wth fragile players or has beens or never will be's.
BB is betting on all the TE's and Wr's getting and staying healthy... if that doesn't happen this passing attack is in serious trouble
The sad thing about your post is there isn't much that can be argued against it. This has been my opinion since they let Welker get away and didn't bring in a good vet medium to deep threat. That's all they needed to really do, resign Welker and bring in an experienced medium to deep threat and work on the defense. Instead they retool the entire WR position, with the exception of Edelman. I'm trying to be optimistic but dang, hard to do when you see so many injuries already and a bunch of less talented no names brought in.
At least we still have TFB who will continue to carry the team on his back regardless who is there. However, TFB nor no other all time great QB can do it or has led a team to SB victory all by himself. I don't recall the 49'ers ever asking Montana to do it all himself or carry a coaches system type offense to the promise land without good and great talent. They surrounded Montana with very good and some great players to help him. That's what isn't happening here.
The Forty-Niners did not have to worry about free agency or a salary cap.
