Originally posted by abowers1984: During an interview on the Razor and Mr. T - Kevin Lynch stated that, according to Scott McCloughan, Jonas Jennings is still on the 49er's roster and he plans on keeping it that way... which is why they have not been searching for a starting RT for next year.
Due to his injury problems however, they are planning on restructuring his contract - most likely to make it much more incentivized. While I didnt truly feel that he would be on the 9er's roster next, I did state several times on the zone that I felt renegotiating his contract would be much more prudent move given his talent level compared to those on the market right now.
So once again Webzone... I told ya so!!!
i tried to tell em too........i think we should definatly try him at guard so he wont have to play in space as much.....staley chilo heitman jenning andre smith those would be some mauling run blockers and a huge oline with a dominating presence
JJ takes a roster spot. He goes down the first game, again, and they scramble to find a replacement. Some may say bring in someone from the practice squad, but how good is a player on the practice squad? I would much rather find a durable, first rate OT and a very good back up. JJ is just too predictably unpredictable!
He will be released, or take a freakin pay cut. he's been living it up just like alex smith. 2 overpaird s.o.b's!
from what i've seen & heard this offseason is that the 49ers are playing alittle hard to get as in revealling information on pursuing free agents, and the draft. we got big secrets & i like it! keeps us all foaming at the mouth. but get jonas out of here! he's a deadbeat

Jennings is a total and complete liability to our Oline. He holds NO VALUE whats so ever. Sure he plays well when healthy, however the disruption to the continuity of our line when he does go down, and he will, by far outweighs any benefit provided when playing while healthy. Also, he is seen as one of the team leaders in the locker room. Do we really want our linemen following Glass Jennings lead?
The oline more then any other unit feeds off of familiarity, consistency and cohesiveness. When there is constant turmoil in your lineup, consistency, continuity, and cohesivness are thrown out the window. When we have Snyder playing 3 positions in 5 weeks because of the disruption JJ going down causes, any positives from the 3 games he actually played are null.
Having to account for JJ going on IR at some time during the season affects the entire offseason for the entire line. We either practice and strategize for his eventual replacement, which doesn't allow his eventual backup to simply play in his stead at the position, or we don't and as a result suffer for having not when he does eventually hit the IR negating any consistency or cohesion.
JJ is a waste of time, resources, money, and a roster spot. Him remaining with the team is further prrof of Scotties inability to perform his duties properly. Further proof he needs to go.
Sing will motivate him to not get injured. In fact, Sing will motivate the entire line to stay injury free. He motivate them into a cohesive, attacking, ground chewing force. Jennings shoulder just needs a good and strong motivational lecture regarding the merits of staying healthy.
I say let him go into the season as the starter, but draft someone with a bunch of potential to have true depth, that way we arent hatin life when Jonas's shoulder goes out for the 50th time, his shoulder must be held on with scotch tape by now...
Kinda strange with JJ, we all know he's hurt all the time which is really frustrating, but when he's out there hes really good (especially in the run game) and he seems to be a leader so I'm guessing most of the coaches like him, with the exception of Mike Nolan of course. That said I don't want to count on a guy that hasn't finished a season...ever.
