Plus the 49ers wont eat cap room to cut Jenkins, he is owed too much in guaranteed salaries, and signing bonus prorations. Only thing that can happen is a trade, then the team trading for Jenkins takes on his base salaries, so we would save a little cap room. But that would admit we made a mistake at pick 30.
This. People are assuming that this has to do with Jenkins, and while it may not mean any sort of approval for Jenkins, I feel it has much more to do with Manningham and that his overall prognosis isn't that great. Manningham's injury was significantly worse than what Williams suffered, so I'm starting to feel that maybe we shouldn't expect anything from Manningham at all this season. In that case, having a steady, veteran presence to bolster Boldin along with a roster filled with youngsters and rookie WR's is a plus.
I'm not seeing a lot of hype for Lockette, not like what was seen in the early offseason either. Not that it necessarily means much, but I could easily see him being the odd-man out. All that size and speed isn't worth a damn if the receiving ability and reliable hands don't come as part of the package.
I'm looking at Collie as a guy who has true potential to hang around and Hawkins as training camp bait.
