If you were an outsider and not a 49ers fanatic, you would see this move as another in a long line of low to NO risk signings of NFL caliber players that Baalke has pulled off. From a PR standpoint, some of us may think this is a bad move. That is totally understandable. The Niners front office and coaching staff are just doing whatever they think necessary to build a complete roster. If this local product can keep it together off the field and play well on the field, he will be a great addition. If not, no harm done.
See: Moss, Randy. And Jacobs, Brandon...hell even Aso.
We do this a lot..it's not really gambling when your playing with house money.
Right now Eric Wright is way behind to make the team. I would say it goes Brown, Rogers (although he will play slot so technically a #3), Asomugha/Cox, Brock. So that's 5 there. He might beat out Brock but Brock was are leading ST tackler last year so who knows. Unless we would keep 6 and in that case he's less likely to play even if he is #5 and Brock would be #6 since Brock plays ST and Wright doesnt (I dont think).
