Remember how good the D was with PH taking some of the early down dirty work snaps to leave Aldon fresh to pass rush. This is a smart play by Baalke.
of course this is the truth. of course we have the two kids from last year but i thiink there is room on the roster for at least one of them if not both. we will not have to spend a pick on a outside linebacker in my opinion,, i was wondering what was going on with this. i know some did not like him but you must admit he made plays and we saw what occured when he got hurt and we had no back up for aldon. maybe we are freeing up cap space for some sort of a major move but i tend to think the niners are freeing up space to sign rookies, and have some in the bank for emergencies and to sign guys long term. a very good signing and i think he made the right move. he knows he will get playing time, he knows the chances of being on a team that should make a deep playoff run are good and if you can not make a living on a million a year, well i just do not know
