Who's out there that can really be a sure deep threat?, for every victor cruz or torrey smith there's 10 ted ginns(or worse) lol.
Meh, he's about a concussion or two away from winding up like Jahvid Best. f**king soft-ass Cal guys.
Not sure why he's even being discussed though, as I said, too expensive...............NEXT............................
The same people bringing him up were the same ones talking about Nmadi and all the other big-time free agents the 49ers were going to bring in, it didn't happen then, it won't happen now. If they sign a WR it's going to be a guy in the 2nd or 3rd tier. Don't think Bowe, Jackson or Colston, think Meachem, Pierre Garcon, Laurent Robinson....etc.
That's the "realistic" approach I was going with when the offseason first started. I was saying someone like meachem too.
But who knows, last season was last season and keep in mind that we were coming right off of the lockout and going cheap+building through the draft and seeing what we could get made sense. Now that we know what's possible with this group of guys why not splurge a little.
And it may be taboo to say this but I'm fine losing a little depth on the defense to get a true playmaking FA receiver. I'd rather take the bargain bin FAs and put them on our defense like we did last offseason than risk it by taking cheapo Wr FAs.
