Not really pleased with the deal

That article is based on the other article which was deleted, my guess is it may not be correct.
We may as well kept him for that. A 7th rounder is just someone who's likely to be cut anyway, especially with our drafting skills. We apparently can't even find a keeper in the 2nd round.

Youre right, we might have gotten a 6th round pick for him. Even without the email there wouldnt have been a bidding war for him.

I don't know if you realize it or not, but 6th round pick > 7th round pick.

Bottom line: letting every team in the league know that you don't want a player is NOT going to help you get value. Why the hell would anyone offer more than a piece of gum for an item everyone knows you're gonna throw away at the end of the day?
maybe that pick can be the one goodall takes from niners for letting crabtree catch passes today
G. Cohn is saying Schefter is reporting this to be true, so I dunno, maybe it is true.
WTF either the email killed his trade value, or something else is going on. Damn for a 7th he is win win for the bengals even if he doesnt do anything other than ST.

MIGHT have gotten a higher pick. Bottom line is if someone thought real highly of him they would have offered more to be able to be the first to get him before he was thrown out. If he was cut he'd be free to go anywhere, by trading for him you wouldnt have to compete with anyone else.
Taylor Mays cannot play safety in the NFL + Everyone knows this = We were LUCKY to get ANYTHING for him.

Bungles fans should be the ones lamenting, not us.

What a waste of a second round pick.

You really have no idea what you're talking about. You can find special teams fodder by scouring practice squads, and probably better special teams players than Taylor Mays.

I love how Baalke was a genius when he got Dashon Goldson for 1.5 million, Braylon Edwards for less than a million (unless he meets his incentive bonuses) and whatnot, but he's a completely irredeemable dumbass for trading a s**t player for a draft pick. I guess that's to be expected with Webzoners. Who everyone really should be blaming: Mike Singletary for being so adamant about drafting Taylor Mays.

Not like he was going to play for us anyways. But no way we traded him for a 2013 7th round pick, that seems somewhat worthless.

Exactly. Which makes me wonder what was going on? Because last time I checked, Taylor Mays had some special teams plays that helped us win, or near win games. We nearly beat the Falcons in their house in large part to a play he made! So a 2013, 7th round pick, ...no, that just doesn't get it done.

What bothers me is that they didn't at least try Mays out at OLB before getting rid of him. A guy with those measurables, and his ability to hit could have possibly converted to outside linebacker. And if I recall, he did a pretty good job blitzing the QB on passes. With his quickness, maybe he develops into a good edge pass rusher? This team loves to draft guys out of position, and then convert them to something else, so why not give Mays a shot? I love Harbaugh as our coach, but I'm not impressed with Baalke. He's just an extension of McClueless. Baalke didn't like the guy, cause he wasn't his pick, but they showed no patience with Mays. It's a double standard. Look at how many second chances some of our other non-productive players seem to get?

Mays made a play in Atlanta to give the 49ers a shot at winning the game. That is something, that game was HUGE.
