I'm never a fan of giving up on higher round picks so fast but it just seems like he wasn't really going to progress here. A could deal for him tho, better than a 5th or 6th like I was thinking

From the way Harbaugh described the situation, it doesn't sound like Fangio ad Harbaugh thought much of Mays. Coaches don't care about cap numbers, salaries, etc., they merely want to put the best product on the field
they're going to be horrible. high 3rd round? that's almost our 2nd we gave up, drafting him

So much for Baalke not knowing what he was doing once again...a 4th/conditional 3rd is a pretty good haul for a player who could only make it in a preseason game in garbage time.


Especiallly since the Bengals will likely have a top 10 (maybe top 5) pick. If he does play enough we could end up getting a very high 3rd round pick for him.

Is that official ?

No, far, far from official. It sounds like it came from a fan posting in a 49ers forum who says he knows someone on the inside. So this could just be complete BS. I bet the beat writers have read this and are trying to get confirmation.

I wonder if McCloughan "quit" and fought because Singletary was NOT his top choice to be a head coach. If that's the case, then Jed is the idiot here and probably made a lot of enemies in terms of business since McCloughan is well connected and I read an article that GM's around the league are not really talking to Baalke.

Yes but they did win the division and their first playoff game. Imagine if we did something like that. We would have higher expectations as fans the next year. I'm sure their fans are thinking deeper into the playoffs now that they are in their 2nd "more comfortable" year under that coaching staff.
Does anyone know what the point is of waiting a while to disclose what draft pick we got??

probably just a verbal agreement at this point. Gotta get all the paperwork in.

I hope it's at least a 4th rounder ...even though it sucks we just flushed a 2nd rounder down the tube
i'd guess 5th rounder.
I mean we TOTALLY killed our leverage with that e-mail to EVERY team.. probably coulda gotten a 3rd w/o that.

RT @ricky_ge_68 what's point in not disclosing pick we received? > 49ers traded 2nd-rd pick of 2010. Can't be proud of what was received.
