Wasted roster spot. Totally useless.

ummm, because we have a crying need for a back up defensive tackle behind dorsey. and we already have miller. again i am calm and maybe they are setting the stage for some sort of a trade or something to get a d lineman in here

I don't get this signing, we don't need another slow fullback. We need a freaking NT, we only have Dorsey as a NT on the roster, wtf this team is turning into the Cleveland Browns real quick with all their former players signing with us.

its like Harbaugh was waiting for an opportunity to sign him... we gave him a try out, but there was no room...now as soon as someone is out for the year we quickly sign him of all people?..of all positions to fill?

Did Harbaugh feel fullback is one of our issues right now? felt we could REALLY get better at that position?...to create competition? WTF?

Agreed! Well its starting to feel like Harbaugh is treating this team like a family business where you can hire your favorite nephew(s) any time you want just because your closer to him than your other nephews. It just sad that he didn't have a good relationship with Sherman and D.Baldwin, we could've use those two naughty nephews, lol.
Good signing.

Maybe we'll sign Kyle Love and cut Osgood, Stupar, or Ventrone.

One of those guys could be sent packing for a DL. I would expect Osgood to be on the bubble.
I don't get it.

Yeah, SanDiego49er might be one of the more knee jerk reactionaries on this board. If he doesn't get up in the morning and rage about the 49ers, he isn't alive.

That's the dumbest thing I ever heard in my life. To take a guy who was one of the best sack artists in his league and try to force him into becomming a FB. A position he never played before at any level. The guy got so many sacks for a reason... And there are OLB pass rushers his size. At least try him there first for goodness sake...This is the type of guy the WZ faithful will gleefully call "bust" or "wasted pick" in a year or a few years. But you see we busted him! We are asking him to play something he never played before and is not comfortable with. Rather than the super productive defensive player he was. OLB pass rusher would be perfect for him. He can rush the passer and was productive at it. Try him there!

This kinda makes sense if he can be a very good special teams player he can back up Miller and in a pinch play LB. Could be the end of Stupar if they find a DT they like. Or they might just hold off until Dial is ready about week 7 or 8
I don't really understand the need for a backup FB

you can laugh at S D if you want but he has a right to be concerned about this move when our larger priority should be a d tackle for dorsey. now they sound like they did work out a guy today which is good news but i think its a little unfair to cherry pick posts. you can do that to anyone to try to make them look foolish but what is the point. again i share concerns with S D about signing a fullback when we already have one, it is not a need and the bigger need is a DT for depth for this sunday

this is not week 7 or 8, we really need someone now on the d line. now maybe they are setting the stage for a trade and yes i know not to get to crazy till the whole thing shakes out but at this point in time, it is puzzling they made this move . our special teams is more than ok, we got a fullback and a back up fullback just does not seem to be what we need. i know i do not know more than the coaches but still ???? and yes leaky, you could be right in your theory about signing this guy to make someone like stupar expendable for a d tackle. hell lets get rid of one of highly coveted 7th round picks for a d lineman
Like I said, this team is slowly deteriorating under Harbaugh.
