Ex-Dolphin Ex-Niner Marlon Moore Back with the Fins

I like that he's got good speed, and is supposed to be a solid gunner on special teams. Not likely to make the roster, but nice to have around in case guys ahead of him get hurt/haven't fully recovered.

As poorly as we covered kicks last season, this guy just might make the 45 on game day as a gunner. Losing Walker hurt coverage.

Is in NOT possible to sign a receiver over frickin 6 feet??? We must must have shortest WR corps in the NFL

You know Crabs is 6'1" right? Boldin is 6'1". Moss was 6'4" (even though he is gone). Jenkins is 6'0". Mario is 6'0". So we got this guy Moore, Kyle, and some practice squad guys under 6'0"? Did you even look at our roster before making that post? Really I am confused as to what you were thinking when you made this post.

Yeah, I know.

What if this guy ends up working his way up to number two on the depth chart and has a pro bowl season.


He was a standout ST player for them so that's what he'll hang his hat on. Anything, else is just going to be gravy.

He said he wants to be good in ST and help out the recieving corps. Hopefully he's like Ginn, only he can run routes and can catch the ball. Wouldn't that be something?

This guy may fill an important role next season. What if Spillman becomes the starter at safety, Moore may need to take his place as gunner. Even if not, he's still needed at gunner opposite Spillman.

And Moore's got some experience returning kickoffs and punts, in case he's needed there.

He's a good sized, speedy, and tough WR who appears to be versatile. If he's more motivated than Ginn was (who didn't seem interested until the playoffs), then he may be a keeper.

I could see the Niners keeping 6 WRs on the 53 this year: Crabs, Boldin, Manningham, Williams, Moore and Lockett. (Or a rookie if Manningham starts off on IR) They make room for the extra WR by cutting Brian Jennings and using Kilgore as long snapper and special teams center.

Just a hunch. A possibilty.

Maybe.

No no NO NO NOOOOO!!!!! En to the double Oh NO. A huge emphasis of this offseason was to improve our special teams play. Cutting Brian Jennings would completely negate that.

We had 6 WR's last year and we found room to keep Jennings. We'll likely do the same again.

So, . . . you disagree?


lol.


I'm just throwing it out there for discussion. At some point Jennings will move on. Kilgore was being groomed to replace him. Will it be this year?

Speed kills, and that has been the case for ever. If moore is that fast, there goes a big improvement in ST immediately. If he can play elsewhere, ie wr, even better. The speed should give him a chance to show if he is ready for the bigs at WR, eg #4 or #5 WR.
He is this years Rock Cartwright, if he competes enough at the WR position while showing he is a special teams stand out he will stick. Losing Colin Jones hurt us more than people like to believe, he may not of made the tackle but he was always first in the returners face with that speed, messing up their blocking schemes on the return. Moore has a chance to be that guy.

Very much agreed. Jones could fly.
He wasn't a very good tackler (my suspicion as to why he was traded), but he disrupted the returner just about every kick/punt.
All Costanzo had to do was mop up.
So far we have crabtree, boldin, manningham, williams, jenkins, lockette, moore, hastings, and hall set to battle it out for 5 or six roster spots i would expect one or two more picked up before tc also to battle out for 5 or 6 roster spots. This should be an eventful offseason.

He's the new younger, Ginn. Does he has Ginn speed?
Who's that jones guy who played WR we signed from Tennessee a few years back on day one of free agency. This has all the makings of that haha

agree, and the fact this guy plays special teams and can return punts and kicks gives him the heads up right now, in my opinion
