Look at the #'s folks. I'd rather take the risk of an uncovered Rogers. He has 1 - 2 years of really good play left (Rogers). Goldson may have 5 - 6. He's an absolute ball hawk out there. He catches every tipped pass. He hits like a truck. His instincts and angles he takes are outstanding. The guy we can't afford to lose is GOLDSON!
Rogers says he wants to finish as a 49er. So I take that chance with a big contract over 3 years he may sign with us again anyway. We can't leave Goldson uncovered. We can't! Big dropoff in the back end without him.
Ted Ginn I think we can get to come back for a big "return man contract." We need him for field position.
Alex Smith has finally found the teacher he needs to continue to develop. Almost no way he wants to go to another team. I think he would be out of his mind to leave Harbaugh. So for a pretty good contract value I think he will come back.
These are the 4 guys I think we need to resign. But Goldson is by far the most dangerous to leave uncovered in FA. Discuss.
yes goldson is good in the trip ball drill but he still takes bad angles and is average in the open. he's a good, damn good hitter but ya cant count on him to be the last pillar
i really like the walt.3 but a BIG 10+ million contract is not what he should get...production based contract with a decent bonus if he wants to stay.
williams has just made ginn odd man out
no way alex could go to another team and be successful anyway..........unless with 2 years in the same O, good Oline, skilled pos players who can catch the ball, can he hit those throws enough to where we cant blame him anymore
There is absolutely NO reason to get rid of Ginn. First because he is at the tops in return yardage and sencond if we are going to use Williams more at WR we need him to stay healthy which means no returns. I think Franchise is the only way to go with Goldson because he needs to prove himself another year. Last year his play was very underwhelming but the year before that it was pretty good. If they can find a guy in the draft has the tools but just needs more time to learn the game it would be perfect so Goldson can walk the next year if necessary.
