49ers interested in trading for Revis (link provided)

I believe that the Niners aren't very interested in trading for him. Sometimes though the "sources" are more reliable than what the team is saying.
Unless they're playing a major game here, it looks like they're going to work on strengthening and deepening their d-line through the draft so that Justin Smith doesn't have to play so many snaps. They'll also add a bigger defensive end. This is the perfect draft to do it.
I'm getting tired of all this Revis stuff...there's no question he'd strengthen our secondary...but, at what cost? He's in the last year of his Jets contract ($6M), but it's what comes after that's the real issue. His goal is to become the highest paid defender in the NFL...which could be extremely costly. The Niners want to maintain as much of their corps as possible...and that'll mean careful scrutiny of the cap. As Baalke's said repeatedly, he can't keep everyone if he overpays anyone. I'd much rather see them invest in a couple of other guys...namely Sean Smith, the big CB (6-3, 215) who can match up well against the bigger receivers and Glover Quin, former CB who's a rising star at SS. Whitner's in the last year of his contract...Quin's a good cover guy and a sure tackler, a definite upgrade from Whitner. Sign him now while he's available and if necessary, cut Whitner and recoup $4M cap space.
Xavier Rhodes, a corner out of Florida State might be available with one of their first two picks. He's 6'2", ran about a 4.4 40, and has over a 40" vertical leap (!?). There is also Desmond Trufant, at 6'0" and a similar 40 time. Both are very physical, very fast and tall for corners. If they are able to get Rhodes and one of the top defensive ends or defensive tackles with their first two picks, I don't care what happens in the rest of the draft. It will be a success.

there should be in a senate investigation if the first three picks are not spent on some sort of a combo of defensive line and secondary help. by the way can any of those two guys who mentioned return punts?

Not that I know of. Trufant is a hair faster, but not as big. His older brother is Marcus Trufant, corner for the Seahawks, so that would be interesting.

ok, thank you. i was just thinking that any corner , safety or wide out we draft really needs to be able to multi task and return punts as that is a need. we have kyle coming back, hopefully healthy, so i guess its not a glaring need but still i was wondering. thank you cc

Sounds great. Culliver/Rogers are 6' and Brown is 5'10". Culliver is MUCH more physical than Rogers though and plays harder (maybe too hard), IMHO. I feel good with Brown. He's consistently very good. But I would love to have a taller SS and CB who can match up against the teams who have killed us with taller, more physical TE's and WR's. These teams killed us and killed us even more in the playoffs. If the refs are going to allow physical CB's in Seattle, don't be surprised if we start to go that route as well (esp. in this division).

point blank to you NC because you are one of the best posters here,,,,, is it realistic to think we could have four new starters in the secondary on the first day of the regular season? after what i saw in the super bowl i would really like to see that but it is probably not realistic.. or is it? what do you think? thank you cc
Trade for Revis, then, move him to safety.





Next our other new safety, Brian Jennings.
Rumors dont just come out of nowhere. Baalke/Harbaugh have been known to keep things hush-hush until the time is right. Remember the Peyton Manning fiasco. Didnt look like like we were anywhere near the radar of going after him, and bam ! Next thing ya know our coaching staff is watching him try out.

I think we're gonna go after Revis hard. Harbaugh is a winner. He knows that we're only 1 or 2 pieces away from the big one. Thats why he went after Manning last year. Thats why he will go after Revis this year.

Cant wait !

thta's a bit harsh, cully is solid so is tarrell brown. rogers is older and has a huge salary..he's worth replacing. i don't know what whitner's salary is but i wouldn't want to see 2 new safeties so i'd rather draft goldson's replacement and roll w/ a rook and whitner

Not likely but perhaps, as much as 3 changes (both S's spots and CB or slot CB):
Brown - very good CB. His issue was technique IMHO. He's got the skill set and will but our scheme didn't favor his style and he has a tendency to play the receiver AFTER the ball is caught. He could have doubled his INT's last year had he kept an eye in the backfield. He doesn't press, jam and allows big cushions and free/clean releases esp. on 3rd and shorts (5 and under, yet he lines up 10+ yards off). To me, there is a scheme/coaching issue here. Remember las year when Rogers would come off a route and undercut another for almost all of his INT's? He didn't do that ONCE last year and to me, that is a poor scheme as well. Vanilla.
Culliver - trouble tracking. Love his speed/range/physicality. Would be more ideal for FS keeping everything in front of him and can match up better in the RZ (huge weakness for us). The question with him is the same as I have with Goldson. Do either have brains?

We'll have to see what we have in Robinson, Cox and perhaps McBath. Then onto second tier FA and the draft!

i think the two responses i got are very wise and spot on.. I know I am still speaking out of emotion and frustration because the super bowl is still very fresh in my mind so perhaps i am being over the top(imagine that from me). i think NC is on track when he says it is not out of the question we could have three new starters. we also have to upgrade that pass rush. i also thank LL for his good thoughts as well

Uh huh. That said, if this part is true, I wonder who the "trade" considerations are.

Maybe the finer points of the Alex Smith trade? Can't think of any other trade that makes sense
I honestly don't think we are gonna be that active going after FA's. Baalke is thinking of 2014 contracts and beyond. We have young stars that we are gonna have to render big contracts to. Plus, we have done a great job drafting the past several years, and now we have a coach with the right formula to put it all together. So, if we draft players that fit our formula we'll be fine without trading draft picks wholesale to get big name players (with there cap murdering contracts).
