good job by the coaches and front office in moving quickly on this front. we had three guys we were looking at and we signed two of them. i really did not care who they signed as all are about cut from the same cloth in regards to some injury historys and a average or below average nfl resume, But at least they were better than a guy off a taxi squad and lord knows we needed the help. if nothing else it will give boldin a break and give some more competition to hall and moore. I know many are in the grassy knoll on what these signings actually "mean", whether or not the coaches have confidence in the current crop or whether they are worried about jenkins really does not mean much to me. we all have our opinions on the current group of niner wide outs. I do assume jenkins and kyle at least can start to practice this week and jenkins esp really needs to play thursday in my opinion. and again for the millionth time,,THANK GOD we did not back up the truck and pay some free agent like revis a s**t load of money,, man you really gotta save your surplus for emergencies like this

Adam Schlefter reporting 49ers may cut Jenkins
I think they trade him before cutting him.
Does Schefter have a source, or is he just speculating? If true, Jenkins must be lazy. I don't think the team would cut a hard working 1st round player in his 2nd offseason, even if they haven't produced yet.
It sucks to waste a 1st round pick, but sometimes it's better to cut your losses sooner rather than later if you're convinced they guy can't play. I'm still holding out hope he turns it around.
Well, the writing was already on the wall, so this move was pretty much inevitable really, not to mention on top of Collie they also signed Hawkins in addition. We can all speculate why the moves, but to say it has abolutely nothing to do with Jenkins' performance is simply naive. In all likelihood, it was probably a combination of Jenkins and perhaps the lack of the other WRs being able to stand out to date, plus of course the current injuries.
As to whether Adam Schefter's report is accurate, I don't know, I don't have a crystal ball. But, is safe to say at the very least, Harbaugh has now lit a fire under Jenkins' behind. Since most seem to agree Collie will make the roster, if Jenkins' spot is indeed guaranteed as some think is ludicrous to cut a 1st round pick after one season, that means it only leaves one spot to be competed amongst a whole army of WRs. Moore ? Hall ? Lockette ? Osgood ? Hawkins ? Jacobs ? Martin ? We shall see.
But, I suspect Collie is just a short-term remedy given his concussion history, if he stays healthy he can help to see us through the season. Come draft time, I am quite sure Baalke and Harbaugh will put WR right on top of the priorty list and I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if we went for 2 wideouts.
