Taylor Mays traded to the Bengals

Mike
Brown
will
not
trade
Carson
Palmer
jeez
We gave him away for nothing. 6th round pick at best, probably 7th.
Doubt it
I think we gave him away too ... but why ? for a 6th rounder? he was worth more than that as a special teamer.. i would've figured at least get 3rd for him ... this is the first move from harbaugh/balkee that makes me wonder

they have two 5th round picks, we probably got one of them.
According to the Bozos on KNBR just a moment ago (9:10PM) post game show, they said the 49ers will get 6th round pick.

that's what happens when you tell every GM in the league that you're trying to dump a player... your negotiating leverage falls off a cliff. Nice rookie move, Baalke.

You are reaching. Mays had little to no trade value, at least we got something.
Do you really think that if Baalke had been more discreet we would have gotten a higher draft pick?
My guess is that the other league front offices knew what ours did, Mays isn't very good.

What's up with the undisclosed pick? did we give this kid away for nothing or are they maybe trying to work a deal for Carson Palmer behind the scenes?

Ya they re taking him for a test drive first.

I don't know if it was a good move or not but the rest of the league would have known how we felt about Mays when we signed Whitner and Williams. They probably decided to get something for him as fast as possible because he was going to get cut when we had to go to 53.

If he was going to get cut anyways by Harbs and Fangio then Baalke made a good move by getting anything for him.

true
3rd round if he starts by game 3. 5th if its later. looks like he going to start in a couple weeks. Marvin Lewis said they are using his strength not talking about any weakeness. Good Coach.

Great job Baalke.
