The 49ers are reportedly close to finalizing deals with third-round RB Glen Coffee and fifth-round QB Nate Davis.
Both rookies are believed to be waiting for a few more players to sign, so they can accurately gauge their signing bonuses. Once the Coffee and Davis deals are finished, Michael Crabtree's should be expedited.
so if we sign davis, does that mean huard is out?
Or do we keep 4 qbs?
Not sure if its possible to sign davis to a deal and then place him on the practice squad.
After re-reading Maiocco's piece on the un-signed rookies from the other day, I'm not so sure Crabtree's deal will simply fall into place after signing Coffee and Davis. I think the only thing that will be firmly established is Crabtree's cap number for 2009.
It's the rest of his deal, including guaranteed money, that will be at issue.
