He is a very smart player, but his body just isn't strong/fast enough anymore. I think it is time to see what our backups have, and see if they can carry the load. What changes would you make?

SIGN GOLDEN TATE! KR, Playmaker

these are not the type of moves the 49ers will be involved in. they'll re-sign whoever they can and get bargain guys like dorsey and skuta. tate's going to play in the sb, his price just went up off of exposure, just like rjf, walker and sopoaga
Based on money, depth, need or any number of reason we are gonna lose some players. Who do you think and why?

I think Rogers is gonna be released and Goodwin. After that it gets interesting?
rogers goodwin and brown i see gone for sure. potentially whitner and boldin aswell.
Whitner: Too expensive to resign
Rogers: Too expensive
Goodwin: Young Center ready to play (Kilgore)
Brown: Too expensive
Hunter: Only one year left on rookie deal and they'll need space for Lattimore and probably a rookie. I think he gets traded
Dixon: Same as Hunter, but I think he'll leave as free agent
Baldwin: Cut

The only one i would be disappointed if he left is Boldin. And Dawson. But other than that, we can replace
I wouldn't mind seeing Whitner, Rogers, and Brown all walk. Whitner played much better this season than in recent history, but he's still a liability where we need him the most. I'd be happy to see Baalke put 75% of his free agency and draft resources into building the secondary.
Brown Rogers And Whitner is gonna put our secondary in a complete overhaul and that seems really dangerous without any proven full season depth left except Culliver(coming off injury) and Reid.

you got cully and brock at the cb's and reid as 1 safety. you're replacing 1 starter essentially in whitner. cully does replace brown or rogers, but seeing as hes a cb with lots of time playing in our system its not really a new starter, just getting a guy who was injured back.

That is really dangerous and could tank our entire year. We got to resign some of them. We can't let them all go. A contender with a complete secondary overhaul. Very bad idea. Sounds like a rebuilding year.

We know those guys aren't good enough to be the long-term solution. Why draw the process out and extend the sub-optimal situation? Get a new group in to start meshing with the existing core and build that chemistry together. Don't add one piece per year because the acclimation process always takes time.
we should bring back Whitner and Tbrown

its not a complete over haul. whitner leaves and they try to plug that gap. it worked when goldson left. cully coming back cancels out brown leaving. and rogers is being cut cus of his pay and it was shown a guy like cox can do just as good of a job if not better than him at this point.
I wouldnt mind brown coming back but it has to be the right, reasonable price. If whitner leaves at least our scouting team proved we can pick the right safety.
I want Whitner back. He bleeds this team. He is the veteran presence we need in the secondary.
Speaking of this, when should we start to hear about signings, etc. When does FA open? March?
