it does free up a mid round draft pick to get someone like a safety which we need or maybe even an extra wideout.I think this is a band aid move to spell gore this year, which we can afford to do since gore is still more than respectable. i think next year is the year we get serious and look for a running back and prepare for gore to retire
Im not sure what to make of it yet hopefully we still draft another RB.

cocky can be swagger, Gore needs someone else that can carry the load with him and converting 3rd downs in the ground game with Jacobs on the field just became easier. He wont have to do any talking because VD will do all the talking there is.
Last year there were many situations when Gore needed a breather, and Niners needed a yard or two for a first down, Hunter isnt that kind of back, and Dixon proved he isnt either, Jacobs can do that, and more importantly he's a very good blocker (Barber is talking bout that now on 95.7)
I would have prefered a draft pick take Dixons spot, but as noted..Niners can wait till next year for that
