Never this organization will not make that move. I don't think.
Definately will not happen....
What will happen is the Niners going to T-Rath and asking him which RB out there does he not consider a p*ssy. Then based on his response is who we will pickup. Good thing is that we have Gore and also a solid backup runner in Dixon (maybe not a great blocker yet). Plus 4 preseason games to identify someone who may have good potential but cant make the roster of the team he signed with due to established starters.
I am sure some of these college players that were better than everyone they played against in college, but not so much in the NFL, get disheartened. They get a heavy dose of humility and can't handle it. If they can't be as good as they were in college, why settle for a back-up job in the NFL?
Coffee put on muscle, but muscle doesn't make a football player.
Also it's probably alot of things, new Rb coach who gets on his ass, He got blown up by a no body, We got Dixon and he knows he will not beat out gore and it's only a matter of time until Dixon passes him, He put on 15lbs and still can't get out of the dog house.
He thinks, "How in the hell can I get out of here? I know! Retire! Then come back a yr or few months later and give a speech about how I was having a rough time in life, wasn't happy, needed a break, and now I'm motivated and missed football."
Now he could get a chance with a team where he actually has a shot. Until of course he gets his sorry ass blown up again.
