Taylor Mays traded to the Bengals

What are conditions? If he makes the pro bowl? is that the actual trade?

I read that if he got 80% of the snaps this year it bumps up to a 3
Has everyone forgotten the circus that the "GM Search " created ??
before the whole "Harbaugh Watch" started, The team needed to hire a GM first.

Baalke was not the GM last year. He was filling in for Scott but it was obvious ( atleast to me ) that Sing had control of the draft and personell.

This is Baalkes real 1st year as GM and by all accounts, it looks like he's doing a hell of a job so far.

I don't care how much Singletary yelled. Baalke was still the GM that drafted Mays in the second round.

Either Baalke made the pick, or he wasn't in charge of his own draft. Either way he has to take blame for totally wasting a high pick.

He wasn't the GM. I don't know where people get the idea that Baalke was a GM last year? McC dropped from the Niners about 2 months from the draft last year and Baalke was just filling in as a interim GM. He certainly did not have the final say on matters, as Singletary still held control over the roster, he was merely an caretaker of sorts that was to make sure the organization didn't fall apart till they could perform a real search for a GM.

Baalke wasn't hired to be the GM until this last off-season. Remember all the drama surrounding his hiring? Remember Jed talking about searching under every rock to find the best GM for the position? Remember Michael Lombardi slamming the Niners for their sham search?

In other words, IT WASN'T HIS OWN DRAFT... he assisted in it, but certainly did not have final say.

If I remember correctly McDouche was let go 2 to 3 weeks before the draft

Yep, there was also cameras in the Niners war room and from the way it looked, Singletary picked Mays. Baalke didn't look too happy about it either.

I was actually happy with the Mays pick, but wanted Morgan Burnett more. Burnett I felt was 2nd round worthy. But I remember Maiocco saying Nate Allen was who the 9ers were targeting in the 2nd round.

I thought Burnett was too small, but he's doing well. If he stays relatively healthy through his career, I'll accept that he avoided Bob Sanders disease. Nate Allen would have been sweet. Allen and Whitner this year?

Yup, Singletry had roster control written into his contract. That's probably what drove McLoughan to drink himself out of a job in the first place.

Sucks. That kid was impressive against the run and the pass. Great instincts.
i wouldve taken a fat out of shape terrence cody over freaking mays
A conditional 3rd round pick or 4th rounder for Mays sounds about right. With Baalke in charge this year, they ended up with Kendall Hunter in the 4th which looks like a steal at this point. Even Culliver has not looked bad at CB with their 3rd round pick. Nice work, Baalke and coaching staff! Get rid of the dead wood and get something for the future.

I agree. I have been very happy with his handling of the draft, free agency, roster, and budgets, etc. I think over the next couple years, the roster will really take shape.
