How do you grade a cornerback? I would happen to think things like catches and yards against, penalties, and missed tackles are pretty important for a CB.
I just quoted Justin Smith.
It's a damn shame that it took Culliver's injury for the 49ers to do the right thing....SMH

- Justin Smith

When he was asked about players and their stats on a TV broadcast during the season. .

He may have meant players who are focusing on their stats in the middle of the season are losers.

I wonder when he is going to get on the field? Hopefully he has his Ipad playbook on him now!

Yah, I wish we got a look at Rose during the preseason, I'm not to fond of this signing too much baggage.

I guess the fact that he's a SF native might serve as motivation for him to get his life together and become a factor here. We can always hope. This is a next-year move.

I maybe not too fond of this signing, but I'm in no way hoping for him to fail I wouldn't wish that upon any 9er. Maybe he surprises us and shuts down Tavon Austin and Percy Harvin.

I am going to think about this after the game.
What a weird way to get out of having to give up a 6th rounder to get Wright for no compensation. Oh, you think this happened by accident? Admittedly the loss of Cully changed things. Stilll...

This is kind of stupid. Bucs were going to release him. We traded for him. Failed his physical. Bucs released him. And now we are trying to sign him again.

This time around the 49ers don't have to give up any picks, even a late one, I don't see the problem.

I just mean its embarrassing. We traded for a guy who just had a DUI then failed him. Bucs cut him, as they were going to anyway. And we go ahead and re-sign him.

How is this a next year move if they only signed him to a 1 year deal

Lol Rose
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.

Actually since he is starting on the non football injury list, I think he may have legit failed. It might have been something small enough that he couldn't pass at the time but has healed up now. DUI really doesn't figure into your job prospects at the NFL level unless your in an accident....there are tons of them yearly and nobody gets disciplined.
