I suppose we could risk putting him on PS, if he fully agrees to it and convinces everyone else that it's pointless to pick him up because he will refuse any contract offer.
He can do that, right?
we would have to waive him first. any team would then have a chance to claim him before we could sign him to the PS.
I'm sure someone has mentioned this somewhere in this thread of epic awesomeness, but it's actually smarter for the 49ers to not showcase Okoye much if at all. If he flashes football ability in the pre-season, someone MIGHT be willing to take a chance on developing him. But if he stays on the sidelines and there's little-to-no tape on the guy, we can waive him with almost zero chance that a team would be willing to keep him on their 53-man roster.
Hell, even if he shows some ability he's not likely to be claimed, but there's always that chance. IMO, he's better off sitting out pre-season games, landing on our PS and working with this team in preparation for next year.
