He's been out there a couple of times. He just hasn't been targeted. Not that these comparisons are equal, but Vernon Davis didn't get many looks and you actually had some webzoners talking about maybe Vernon had fallen off and we should trade him.
What we do know is that he is rarely active and even when he is, he rarely see the field. He's had one pass target. What we don't know is why. All we can do is assume and I'm done assuming when it comes to personnel moves with this team.
Someone brought up an excellent point in this thread about it already. Everyone assumed Baalke needed someone like Floyd Reese, Bill Parcells, etc to be over him when he got the GM job. Obviously he didn't need anyone over him. When it came to free agency after the lockout, people panicked because he wasn't signing anyone when the frenzy began. Then he signed Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner, Braylon Edwards, etc. Those signings mostly turned out to be pretty big. Then the draft came and the criticism of the Aldon Smith pick, people spoke of how raw CK was. Wrong again. In free agency for 2012 we signed Randy Moss, Mario Manningham, and Brandon Jacobs. All 3 came cheap and we were 2 for 3 with those signings. People thought Randy Moss would implode and he has been the model teammate. Mario Manningham was a great pickup as well. The 2012 draft came. Hard to really judge because only one player has really had the opportunity to do anything. But that one player has played HUGE dividends (LeMichael James). Two have been hurt (Fleming and Johnson), Looney is depth at this point, and Robinson is developing, however he's a low pick so I wouldn't question much. I'm saying all of that to say this. Considering his past track record (and I will include the 2010 draft where he drafted an All-Pro ILB), I will give our GM the benefit of the doubt on AJ Jenkins. Don't you think he has earned that much?
