Don't worry, I won't regain my mock fetish like last year. This is a plan in which I think would fill the 49ers needs the fastest without overpaying in free agency.
Main Resignings -
Aubrayo Franklin - NT - 3 year
Dre Bly - CB - 2 year
Main Free Agent Signings -
Leon Washington - RB - NY Jets
*Raye's familiarity with him, as well as an offense that "attacks" through the ground first, Washington is certainly a worth of spot to split carries with Gore. Washington is a great PR/KR guy, too.
Stephen Neal - OG - Patriots
*Neal is a seasoned veteran that would be an upgrade at OG, letting Baas walk. Neal is a Cali native as well.
Shawne Merriman - LB - Chargers
*He should be had for a reasonable rate on the free agency market. I doubt the Chargers find a viable trading partner, and I don't think they are in a position to slap the franchise tag on him. Manusky connection here.
Khalif Barnes - OT - Raiders
*Barnes gained fairly large interest last year for teams that were looking for LTs. Now recovered from an injury in pre-season, Barnes may see some starts this season. He'll likely leave Oakland in the off-season, and he'll be a relatively cheap depth signing.
