Huh, the 49ers signed Brandon Jacobs to a one-year deal. The guy had an awful year last year, but I guess the hope is for a turnaround in new surroundings. The one thing he does bring is size, and the ability to get the tough yards on 3rd and short. Something fairly lacking lo these many years since William Bar None Floyd. He’s also a good enough pass-catcher. Bruce Miller was never really used as a true fullback, and Anthony Dixon failed as a short-yardage guy, so I guess this makes sense. He’ll mainly be backing up/blocking for Frank anyway, and a 3rd down plugger.
49ers also took a look at Duece Lutui, FA guard from AZ. He was a starter for 5 years, but weight problems kept him out of the lineup last year. Ex-Niner Kyle Kosier is available as a FA. He was recently released by the Cowboys. He’s old though. Kilgore Trout is the guy that the Niners have pencilled in to replace Snyder. In other news, Manny Lawson is still out there looking for a place to land, as is Mike Wallace, FA WR extraordinnaire. Ladarius Webb, CB is also around, but his price tag will be high.
