No, because if it isn't retroactive then he will be suspended when you sign him again. If it is retroactive then he has one more game. Bak, has not proved anything-no experience except pre and that is against 3rd stringers. Plus he has had a series of concussions. In the long run, the niners want someone experienced. Merriman? Are you kidding me? Mr. Steroids? Now that he is off it, he really won't be all that good. Grant can man that outside or have grant slide inside and either or current MLB slide outside temp.
The niners could also line up dobbs, it will be limiting though since coverage skills are nonexistant, but then again they will just pass rush or play the run.
