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.
We have enough pick to get 2 WR and 2 CB. Potentially 6 top 100 picks counting a 3rd rd comp pick perhaps for Goldson. Jenkins will make the team this year barring some colossal failure this preseason. As a minimum, the WR already here know the system more than the NOOBs
