Fans’ Take: Who should the 49ers target in free agency?

Jul 26, 2011 at 3:41 PM11


Which free agents should the 49ers target in the 2011 NFL free agency? We asked this question to San Francisco 49ers fans on Facebook and Twitter. Below are just a few of the responses we received.

B. Wiley: Any of the top QB's out there...Smith is not the answer.

D. Montano: get cromartie!! were obviously not getting asomugha so why not get the 2nd best corner in free agency

@mangosinslo: Marshall, Joseph, taylor

@RobbyBaughman They should go get Ray Edwards

F. Bucio: Nnamdi please!!

@NTQ03: They should sign former pro-bowler Leonard Davis to replace Rachal, Nmamdi or Cromartie, & a vet QB to replace Carr.

A. Williams-Fashaw: Hasselbeck, Nmandhi A., Holmes, or Cromartie

S. Braccia: Hasselback and Johnathan Joseph

D. Wright: No one believes Smith is the answer... he is the stopgap or bridge to Colin Kaepernick ... Harbaugh will make them both better... we'll see just how much.

H. Esquivel: Nnamdi! And a new RG! Bring Lawson, Franklin, Laboy, Mcdonald, Goldson, Bass, Spikes back! Cut Haralson! Make Rachal a back up! Cut Horrid and get a new FB! Restructure Clements!

J. Servente: Cromartie, Nmandi, or Asante. Worst defensive backfield in the game. Need to fix this now.

M. Tavares: Definitely a CB, a QB, and a better #2 receiver

A. Kneisel: Nnamdi, Cromartie , restructure Clements or cut him. Sign baas and McDonald. Move a restructured Clements to safety with mays nnamdi and Cromartie and watch this defense dominate...

J. Clougherty: Johnathan Joseph thats it -- He won't command a big salary no matter much Nnamdi gets so we would still avoid being "major players" in free agency by signing him.

A. Carrillo: Josh Johnson,Ricahard Marshall,Thomas Howard and Eric Weddle

T. Velasquez: Nnamdi.

@kilzz80: Sydney Rice, he's a very good WR and provides a deep threat, also I would like to a WO with RICE on there jersey again in SF.

F. Hernandez: Johnathan Joseph & Cromartie...we need better DB's

C. Munkres: Orton and Nmandhi

    what we needed to do was sign a guard like harvery dahl(i know its too late !) or a proven tacles so when can have another starting linemen with experiance so when one of our starter goes down another proven player can step up. we also needed to sign the big contract with desahun goldson so we could have a skilled vertrean safety with a bright future. best scenairo would have been to sign johnathen joseph to a nice big contract in the beginign and solidfied the cb postion.or we should have restrurcered nates contract traded him and a draftpick for a different corner. for our wr postion malcom folyd for cheap or brylan edwards to break the bank book, we need size at the wr postion zeigler is not cutting it. an agile fb would be neccessary if we are running a truewest coast, since we only have moran norris who is a great blocker . QB postion needs something besides alex and the rookie maybe im crazy but forsome reason a trade for charlie whinehurts sounds appealing to contend with alex smith for the starting roll . mat roth cliff avril and kedric golston all look like a great additon to our defense of line with mc donald sopaga and justin smith. balke has my dream job.. contact me!

    I wish they would do anything , again they decide not to bring in a QB to challenge Alex , we need a WR , a RB , QB , CB , DE and a center we're still a mess and don't seem to be bringing in any players to improve.

    Cromartie has very poor habits when it comes to putting in the hours in the film room which reflects a poor attitude. In the NFL, natural talent only goes so far. Personally, I'd prefer Jonathon Joseph AND Richard Marshall over acquiring Nmandi

    Dont think Nnamdi will be a Niner would love it tho so..I think we should get Reggie Bush when he gets cut, J. Joseph, Ray Edwards, Sidney Rice, and I wouldnt mind seeing T.O. back. And I think Alex will be fine this yr Im not gonna down him like everyone else does cause ur supposed to support whoever is on ur team n be posiive cause negativity breeds more losing. And me being a fan for years now im tired of losing and a culture change is needed starting with less hatred for our starting QB if he ends up being that.

    Alex Smith is the answer! If the question is what's the best way to get the number one draft pick for next year. Still think we should go for Nnamdi, and if we can restructure Clements and have them as our corners.

    I would like a DT (Pat Williams) a big WR, or a corner. Joseph is on a lot of people's radar. James Jone is a possibility. Plaxico Maxico Buress will be cheap!

    Resigning McDonald, Bass, Lawson, Franklin, and Gholdson should be #1 priority. If not, I would like a DT (Pat Williams) a big WR, or a corner. Joseph is on a lot of people's radar. James Jone is a possibility. Plaxico Maxico Buress will be cheap! Oh ya, get rid of David Carr ASAP. He can't throw a 12 yard out.

    I Think The 49ers Should Get Rid Of Nate Clements, Which Would Free Up Cap Space$$$. He's Not Worth Almost 9 Million Dollars Could Be More, Cut Him Coach Jim Please!!! Go After (DB's) Joseph, Cromartie...(WR's) Roy Williams, Randy Moss... I Think That The 49er's Will Get The Most For The Money That They Will Spend, It Would Have Been Nice To Sign Nnamdi Asomugha, But B/C Of The Knew CBA The Cap $$$ Is Lower Know So We Must Spend Smart And Wise!!!

Spotrac predicts some key 49ers free agency comings and goings

By Kirk Larrabee
Feb 20, 2021

What might things look like for the San Francisco 49ers after the first wave of free agency? Time will tell, but one possible scenario was laid forth by sports financial analysis website Spotrac earlier this week. Spotrac operator Michael Ginnitti posted a long list of free agency projections on February 17, which included guesses for salaries and destinations of the top impending free agents across the NFL. Ginnitti included two 49ers among his guesses -- offensive tackle Trent Williams and cornerback Richard Sherman -- while also projecting three other free agents to wind up in San Francisco. Ginnitti's projections on Williams and Sherman aren't



Kyle Juszczyk talks free agency, says 49ers teammates are reaching out

By David Bonilla

Kyle Juszczyk is just a couple of weeks away from hitting free agency, and from the discussion on Monday's The Pat McAfee Show, it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers fullback believes he will get to test the market. This is the second time Juszczyk will be a free agent. He signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers in 2017 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. "Honestly, there really is so much that goes into it," Juszczyk told Pat McAfee. "Money, without a doubt, is one of the biggest things. I'm not going to be the guy that sits here and tells you that no, money doesn't matter because this is life, man. It's a business. Money is probably the No. 1 factor, but it's not the only factor. There's a lot. "Things like, can this

NFC West news: Russell Wilson names desired destinations, should Seahawks consider a trade

By David Bonilla
Feb 25, 2021

Russell Wilson isn't happy with his situation in Seattle. Earlier this month, the Seahawks quarterback expressed his frustration to reporters. "I'm frustrated with getting hit too much," Wilson said. Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando, and Jayson Jenks of The Athletic report that the quarterback has discussed those frustrations with team decision-makers multiple times and even offered up ideas to fix the situation. Those suggestions were reportedly dismissed, leaving Wilson more frustrated with the organization. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports first reported Wilson's growing discontent, naming several potential trade destinations. "[Wilson and Carroll] have made the playoffs every season but one, won a Super Bowl and lost another,"
