Speaking of receivers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the 49ers have talked to the Cleveland Browns about receiver Josh Gordon. He'd likely cost, at least, a second-round pick. If the Chiefs win three more games, a third-round pick will turn into a second rounder as part of the Alex Smith trade. Thus, the 49ers may have two second rounders.
Baalke needs to pull the trigger and go for it. Our WR core is in shambles, Kap desperately needs another weapon to get our passing attack going, and even with Manningham and Crabtree eventually coming back, it's not guaranteed that they'd be playing or producing at 100% when they do return anyway. Josh Gordon is young, healthy, still on a rookie contract so he'd be cheap, and I feel much better spending a 2nd rounder on a guy who is GOOD, can come in right away and produce, and has proven he can play at NFL level. He does have so questionable character issues but we have plenty of vets like Anquan and Vernon that can hopefully steer him in the right direction. Green light, go for it!!!
