. . . and there’s still no word on Alex Smith and his deal (or lack thereof). The latest news so far is Adam Snyder signed a 5 year deal with the Cards, Shawntae Spencer was cut, and Joshua Morgan is gone. So, unless these guys think Randy Moss and Chilly Rachal are more than adequate to be the starters now, they are in the market for a RG and a couple WRs. The Niners signed Perrish Cox and re-upped with Carlos Rogers to beef up their secondary. Reggie Smith has slipped down the depth chart once again. The D looks fairly well set going forward into the draft.
The offense? Well, there’s a ton of guys still out there to be signed. Chaz Schillens stopped by, as well as Brandon Lloyd. Schillens is a pretty solid guy who sems to have problems staying healthy. Lloyd? Been there, done that, but the guy consistently puts up big numbers. It could work. Royal’s out there as well. He’d be a nice replacement for Ginn, as I don’t think Ginn or Kyle Williams will stick. This leads me to think these guys go heavy on the offense in the upcoming draft next month. As far as guards go, Evan Mathis is out there. Nicks was signed by the Buccos. The Saints signed Grubbs to replace him, and there are other out there still available like Geoff Schwartz, who is scheduled to come visit the Niners today. Leanord Davis stopped by, but he’s likely done at 33. I think they sign one more FA WR, a RG, and maybe a TE.
The draft will likely be tilted toward the offense as well. Unless some big NT fialls to them in the early to mid rounds . . .
