Tyson Jackson

Tyson Jackson is almost certainly going to be released this offseason due to his enormous cap number and mediocre play. I saw in another thread MadDog suggesting that maybe the 49ers would go after him. If I'm not mistaken, the Chiefs did run a 3-4 defense and that's what Jackson struggled in, nonetheless he could be intriguing as a cheap option who obviously has talent. Thoughts?
I really like this idea, Jackson would be a solid addition if he's affordable. I think Tomsula could work wonders with him and a guy like RayMac would be a good vet presence around him.
Woah there...if Jackson was a bust in Detroit (most accounts I've read say that), why would we want him? Just because he'd be "cheap" is no reason to sign him. Agree we need some veteran depth on the DL...just don't think TJ is the guy to give it to us. I'd target Randy Starks, a 300+ lb'er who can play inside or out. He's a good player and would be some much better insurance for Justin Smith. Yes, Starks will cost...but if you want quality, that's usually the case. Sopoaga's not likely to be back...so you replace a vet with another vet. Just make sure he's a quality player, which Starks is.

Tyson Jackson never played for Detroit.

...........and Randy Starks is 30 yrs old. Niners are looking to get younger on the d line.
Tyson Jackson was the # 3 overall pick in the 2009 draft by the Chiefs. Stands 6'4 and tips the scales close to 300 lbs. Sounds like a good fit for Da Raiders.

I like the idea of Tyson Jackson. Starks is too old and i believe that you're thinking of Lawrence Jackson

Tyson Jackson was not a bust in Detroit. He has never played for the Lions.

Tyson Jackson was drafted by the Chiefs and he has played for them ever since.
A deal similar to the structure of Randy Moss' would be great. I wouldn't throw a pile of money at him though.
The Chiefs seemed to have an all-star draft in 2008 and 2009. What happened to that team? Dorsey didn't pan out. Jackson didn't pan out. DIdn't they lose one of those corners they drafted in FA last year?
If the Chiefs didn't reach for Jackson, we wouldn't have KingCrab! Once they selected him I praised the lord
I really like Starks - didn't realize he's 30.

Wishful thinking, BUT if the price were right I think he'd be an impact player and improve our rotation considerable.

Tyson's at least worth a serious look.
Where would Tyson play DT/DE if Ray Mcdonald and Smith are playing DE. Would he come off the bench or where would he go.

My thoughts exactly lol
Intrigued by his guy...still young and with the right team and coaching could turn around his career
