You're assuming that they are doing anymore than just kicking rocks with those players. Baalke will do what he always does, talk to a variety of players, and then wait until the spending frenzy has died down and go for the best values still left in free agency.
Exactly, the only FA we signed early on was Randy Moss, but he came out of retirement and was looking for a contender like us. We will let the super contracts go by, and see what's left. After all, we signed Goldson for cheap because he didn't get the contract he wanted last year. I'm sure another player will fit the bill this year too.
Plus, I'm sure future contracts are definitely present in their minds too. Franchise guys like Kaep, Aldon, Crab, Iupati, and A. Davis will be coming up quickly. If we can get our D-line back to what is was last year and the beginning of last year, then we won't need stellar play in the secondary, it will take care of itself.
