If we were in a situation like when the Niners brought in Dieon Sanders, then yes.
However this isn't basketball, where one player can make all the difference even if you lose some others. VD needs to be signed to as well as others.
As far as Clements and the posibble money we would pay 2or four draft picks, who knows if we have a rookie cap.
Plus what if he goes down from injuries. then there is the fact that he may shine in the Jets D-but not so in the niners scheme-this can happen and has. The niners are not perenial plyoff team yet. Plus as I said this cap thing and labor negotiations are dicey right now.
The thing is, unless someone takes Clements off our hands via trade, he will count against the cap, maybe not this year because of the flux, but their are a lot of other players that need to be resigned after this year. Not to mention whether or not Smith works out, if he does we will have to pay him, if not then we will have to find someone like a Brees was a find for the Saints either way coupled with VD and Goldson and others, he will not only take a big chunk, but may cause a disruption in the pay formula on the niners. Willis is making what 10 mil a year year, and he wants more?
Like I said they are not that one player away from the superbowl yet. Also there is no guarentee that he will fit in the niners scheme. As much as you hate the jets, you cannot totally say that the coaches were not part of the reason for his success. Like Young and Montana, they are great, but they would not have been as good without the hand of Walsh. You see it all the time some players are even better when they go to another team, but the opposite is also true.
