**Update** Marvel Smith retiring (Confirmed)

I just hope we keep Boone now or go get Levi Jones, I dont think we have any good tackle depth whatsoever!

Bring in Jones, dump Sims, and keep Boone.

First off how is Jones' health?? I would probably give him the same contract that M. Smith got. And yes, I would keep Boone.

That means Barry Sims could actually start another game for us

f**k!!!!!!!!!
Let's keep this in perspective. Smith was a stop-gap solution at best. Even if he could play, he'd have a maximum 2 years. Losing him now will only give other guys (Boone) more opportunity to develop. Naturally, in retrospect, drafting Oher appears the better move, but, as has been pointed out, the vast majority of us were ecstatic when Crabtree fell into our lap. Don't be fairweather fans and don't blame Scotty for circumstance. Singletary's plan is long-term and long-haul, so lets not get hung up on the short-term. We all want to win now, but realistically, our run is at least a few years away. The important thing is we're visibly building towards it. Things seem to be falling apart in some areas, but the important thing is we appear to be on the right track. Don't lose sight of the long-term goal, because that's where we're headed.

Time to show why you could have been a 1st-2nd rounder Alex!

Well we are looking at the market right now for OT's per MM's twitter.

Quote:
Offensive Tackle
Levi Jones (LT) - Talented, long-time starter for the Bengals, but has suffered through various injuries over the past few years which have limited his play.
Mark Tauscher (RT) - May not be ready to play until after the regular season starts.
Jon Runyan (RT) - He still wants to play one to two years and should be ready to go very soon.
Jonas Jennings (LT/RT) - Oft-injured since he signed a big free-agent contract with the 49ers and probably is better off at right tackle because of his short arms.
Charles Spencer (LT/RT/G) - Very talented and versatile, but hasn't been the same after suffering a horrific leg/knee injury during his rookie season with the Texans. Recently signed with the UFL.
Kwame Harris (LT) - Marginal starter, but could be a solid backup for a team in need of a LT.
Jason Fabini (RT/G) - Can play probably at least three spots on the offensive line. Serviceable backup at this point in his career.
George Foster (RT) - Average backup tackle.
Wayne Gandy (LT) - Last word we had was that he still wanted to play.
Junius Coston (RT) - Fits in as a fourth tackle.
Rob Petitti (RT) - He was recently selected in the UFL draft.
Fred Miller (RT) - 36-year old tackle who probably will retire.
Kevin Sampson (RT) - Started his career off with the Kansas City Chiefs and has bounced around of late. Signed with the UFL.

question:

If a player signs and then decides to retire before the season starts to they have to pay back any guaranteed money from that contract?

Just sayin...the 49ers lead the league (albeit preseason) in rushing yards thanks to the current starting Oline. The only thing we should be concerned about is depth. This lineup is playing better as a unit than it ever has. Enough with the "sky is falling" mentality. Every negative bit of news around here somehow turns into "the season is DOOMED!!"

This just in: one of our ballboys suffered a broken ankle. Oh God!! How will we ever get those game balls onto the field now!! Jed York SUCKS!! Why didn't he have a backup plan for ball boy!! Gotdamnit our season is RUINED!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!
