Lockette, Jerod-Eddie, Netter and Cam Johnson all turned down 53 man roster spots to stay with us. Some guys would rather be with better coaching and a better team. Some times it works out for the players some times it doesn't. Some of the guys that signed elsewhere are doing nothing on bad teams. Other guys like Jerod-Eddie stayed and are now contributing on a potential playoff team and had a chance to go to the SB last year. Actually all these guys that turned down teams got a chance to go to the Super Bowl last year which I'm sure they will never forget and maybe not get to go back again in their careers. Heck some of these guys will be in the semi-pros soon and they can say they got to go to a SB with the 49ers.
Yeah that worked out real well for 3 of those 4.. They're not even on the team anymore, and it's not like the 49ers are hurting to get Eddie some more playing time. 53 man rosters guarantee salary (to a large extent). Practice Squad do not.
He's played 39 out of 136 snaps the last two games. That's roughly 28.6%. I wouldn't call that a lot. I didn't count the first two games because I know he only played 3 snaps in the Packers game and it would mess with the integrity of the percentage.
Further illustrating that if BJ wants playing opportunity, especially with Kap at QB for us, his best bet is to go somewhere else. He won't turn down a 53 to go to our PS, that's just not happening.
