Anyone with a choice doesn't want to play for the 49ers. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't people who would rather retire than play for the 49ers.
That might be taking it a bit far
If you look at most of the players in college who played for Coach Harbaugh or played against him they absolutely adore coach. I know it's not college any more but if the NFL guys feel the same way word will spread and players will be influenced by that.
Maybe Baalke is low balling everyone? I just don't see how Takeo would have us 5th, Laboy has us 3rd, etc. Maybe guys don't want to play for a college coach. We don't know the details though. All these rumors maybe we just inquired to see what they where looking for and backed off. So many false reports as well. If we knew that we were offering as much as everybody else on all these players we supposedly inquired about then there would be a problem.
