Sounds like a plan to me. The more pass rushers we have, the Better.

I'd love to draft a DE that can spell Ford and Nick and would take over if Ford can't go because of that knee/hammy.

Yes, I'm down with you guys...we got players coming back from injuries and they just signed some other dudes. Someone from that bunch could become a solid piece like Blair and maybe Moore before his injury.

Yeah, thats when we struggled this season. We need to build on the defense with solid, quality depth.
But damn, we need to add some OL help too and it looks like Sanders might be gone so a WR will be in the mix too.
We need to find a late round LB too that can step in as well.


Lol, f**k the shopping list is growing.

Have a feeling his contract considering his contribution is going to hurt us the most.

This begs to be restructured IMHO.

Yeah, if he's just a 25% player like this last year, this needs to be restructured.

Not much a restructuring will do. The money still ultimately gets paid.

And there's no incentive for him to take a pay cut. The open market will pay him well. The league is too desperate for pass rushers. And there are a ton of awful teams with space who need to do something.

*IF* he doesn't play 70% of the defensive snaps this season... I think they will attempt to trade him next offseason. That's especially true of Joey Bosa does not sign a LTD with LA.
Ford only was in for 226 snaps this year after taking 1022 the previous season. Let's hope he can get back to something over 600 snaps.

That's why he is a shoe in to be back this year. Niners need to know what they got in him. Every other year after 2020 is basically a team option. So, no need to rush. And Niners can easily get out of this contract starting in 2021.

Yeah, he'll have '20 to prove himself, otherwise, he's cut in '21.

Wow that's alarming.

It's one reason I hope Blair can come back early next season. If we can rotate him with Ford and Bosa it could take some pressure off them. If we could get 600 snaps from Ford and 300-350 from Blair in rotations that would work out well for the team and the players.

May sound nuts but I don't think Joey Bosa is the answer if we replace Dee. We need speed opposite of Nick, who is more athletic than Joey.

Yes, true, but it's frustrating af to think of teams that have won with lesser talent than what we came with

I'm gonna have to drink up some Cherry Vodka mixed with Black Cherry White Claw, bruh

Plus, Joey is going to demand a boat load.

Yeah, but it's all about health esp. now that we're backed up against the cap. If they don't project him to stay healthy going forward, they have rip cords today. They are trying to resign as many core players as they can right now... young players that will be here for the next 4-5+ years. At this point, we're just hoping he can last a season. The FO probably is too. And as prosperous as it sounds, they may be very much considering pulling that rip cord this off season.

I'm not saying they will... just noting it's a real possibility.
