2012 Niner Free Agents

With all the one year signings this year, and our regularly scheduled crop of FAs next year, I started thinking about what 2012 might look like. From what I could find the 2012 Niner FA class looks like (*=starter):

Frank Gore*
Alex Smith*
Moran Norris*
Josh Morgan*
Braylon Edwards (* until Crabtree is back maybe longer)
Ted Ginn
Adam Snyder (* until Goodwin takes over)
Chilo Rachal*
Tony Wragge
Ahmad Brooks*
Reggie Smith
Carlos Rogers*
Dashon Goldson*
Madieu Williams
Blake Costanzo

I didn't include any of the undrafted FA signings (obviously) and I'm not 100% sure I got everyone. There are some significant (expected) contributors here but overall it doesn't look terrible even though there are 10 starters expected to be FAs at the end of the season. CB will be a need again next year as will O-line. I expect Gore will be extended before training camp is finished and perhaps someone like Rogers and/or Edwards will be offered a new deal during the season if they are performing. Some of the "starters" (ie Rachal, Snyder and possibly Alex Smith) are very replaceable based on historial performance. Net is we're not looking too bad for the future!
i was going to say that its way too early to start thinking about this, but, given how long it took us to start signing free agents this year, the timing might be perfect!
Blake Costonzo?!?!?

According to Maiocco, here are the Free Agents we have at the end of the year. I knew we had signed some 1 year deals, but wow, there is a lot of talent on this team that needs to be resigned. (I bolded the ones I'd like to see back, given a reasonable contract - these guys seem to make plays):

CB Tramaine Brock (EFA)
LB Ahmad Brooks

RG Chilo Rachal
CB Carlos Rogers

I wouldn't mind him back I guess...Can't have too many young "promising" CBs.

What does EFA mean anyway? "Exclusive Rights Free Agent"? What does that mean?

I'm guessing the poster meant ERFA which means Exclusive Rights Free Agent.

Brooks is a must-sign. He's been a stud, and we have zero depth at OLB. Even if Aldon starts and Parys moves over to replace Brooks, we have no one behind them, and as much as I like Parys that would be a major downgrade. Aldon-Brooks as starting OLB with Parys as a situational/depth guy is fearsome.

Goldson is more borderline "Group A" guy, IMO. I really like him but of those guys, he's the one I'm most ok with losing. He's the guy, however, that I think we should franchise if we can't get a deal done quickly.

Brooks has definitely been good, but I think Alex, Rogers, and Goldson are more important. Also wouldn't be surprised if we drafted another OLB next year.

Hopefully we'll re-sign close to all of these guys.

agreed. I also think we should draft another OLB at some point, but keeping Brooks makes it less of a need. Either him or Goldson should be franchised. For some reason, I just think we'll be able to get something done with Brooks, but not with Goldson, so we should franchise him, since his # will be much less than those other guys.

If we have to replace too many parts on this defense, its going to suck. Keeping these guys together and bringing in more young talent and depth will help us maintain an incredible defense in the short-term and long-term, which would be awesome.
