FA WR -- can 49ers attract the right guy??

Yes please! I am on board with this. Scillins is a tall receiver with great speed. He has shown some great potential, but has been limited by injuries.
I just watched some random segment on NFL Network's Path to the Draft (http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-free-agency/09000d5d827a1a88/Free-agency-impact-on-the-draft?module=HP11_content_stream) and at around the 2 min mark Lombardi claims the Redskins (of course) are trying to sign Eddie Royal at 6 mil per year. I thought Royal would be a bargain player, and Lombardi could be way off the mark, but if it it's true... 0 chance we come away with anyone regarded as superior to Chaz Schillens. WR market is just too inflated.
Wallace is still a possibility
Not with the $ they've been willing to spend.

So far I like Baalke's draft picks..........so no!
niners are going about this the right way, it's just the waiting that upsets everyone
maybe nobody has really impressed them, maybe this will make them wanna consider wallace.
LOL!! Seriously? Did this need it's own (b***hing) thread?

i just assumed this was created just as a way to find another way to bash alex
Hey mods... this thread belongs in the Free Agency forum!
I don't understand the widespread questioning of the offseason plan by the 49ers FO. A lot of fans are going nuts over us not re-signing Alex Smith yet. Maybe more are taking the not signing a WR or a top end FA thing way too far AGAIN for the 2nd year in a row. Last year we waited through the storm of FA and ended up with Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner, Jonathan Goodwin, and Braylon Edwards late. Early all we did was sign David Akers, Alex Smith, Blake Costanzo and let Takeo Spikes, Abrayo Franklin walk and told Dashon Goldson to go ahead and leave if he didn't want our deal and he ended up coming back. How did you like those moves?

This year early on we kept the entire D in tact by extending Ahmad Brooks, Carlos Rogers and franchising Dashon Goldson. Both the organization and Alex Smith have said hundreds of times, a deal will get done. Are you all really that worried that it wont? Not to mention the team has signed Randy Moss to be a deep threat to a low risk deal. They signed a guy in Perrish Cox that can come in and contribute on ST and provide depth at CB. Rock will do essentially the same and challenge the twitter king Anthony Dixon for a roster spot.

This team is doing its due diligence. Every WR outside of the Jackson, Meachum who both got crazy money has visited or talked to the 49ers. They WILL sign 1 maybe 2 of them before it's over. They WILL draft a WR or 2 or who knows 3. We've also brought in a couple OL to improve the RG spot.

Instead of at least letting it ride for more than 3 days, everyone would rather whine that we didn't resign Blake Costanzo. It's great being a niner fan
Thanks for all the thoughtful feedback -- good stuff. I'm not complaining about the FO strategy, and not bashing Smith. I was just thinking about the perspective of the visiting receivers thinking they wouldn't get enough action at the 49ers. Again, to the people that made thoughtful post, enjoyed your posts!

seriously, the football is not won right now. I can understand when we went 4-12 wanting a big time player. right now, we've got a great system, a good cap situation and most importantly, a smart HC and GM, let the men do their work
