Good move imo... I think we would have cut him anyways because he provides no value at safety and we didn't re-sign Costanzo who was our ST leader for peanuts that Chicago gave him. We don't like one dimensional guys. So a 7th for a guy I think we would have cut anyways. We have plenty of special teams aces and are one of the best teams in the league on ST.
I'm fine that the pick isn't this year. We will have 12-13 picks this year and already like 2 7ths. I'd rather have it in 2014 when right now we only have now 8 picks (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7 (panthers)
The team traded backup safety Colin Jones to Carolina. San Francisco will reportedly receive a seventh-round choice in return, presumably from 2014 or later given that the Panthers traded a 2013 seventh-rounder to Oakland for Louis Murphy.
