Or is it? Nothing to report on these days in the doldrums between the draft, OTAs, and actual camp. Time for boys to be good boys and not get caught up in any shenanigans, or felonies for that matter. One (well, me) has to wonder if there are still a couple free agents still out there, let alone after camp cut down days.
Perusing the free agent list, a few solid DBs are still floating out there, including Morris Claiborne, and Tre Boston. With Jimmy Ward out yet again, Boston makes a lot of sense. He’s had 10 picks and 26 passes defensed the past 3 years, and is only 26. Claiborne is a good corner who would add depth along with his 22 passes defensed and 3 picks in the last couple years. Nothing spectacular but solid depth nonetheless. There’s always Eric Berry, good guy but like Ward has trouble staying on the field.
Donald Penn can be had as a swing tackle who can provide depth on the line. Wilkerson and Derrick Morgan are available at OLB. Shit, even Kelvin Benjamin is still out there.
Here’s the list of top 50.
Unless some people get hurt I doubt we go with anymore FA. Even though there are some young ones most are at the 30yr average. I think we want to stay as young as possible. But what do I know. I think quite a few of those names are going to be retiring soon.
I’m totally in on Boston. He’s young and good.
People are picking fights on the WZ just to have something, anything, Niner related to write about. The place is a morgue compared to how it normally is. The 6 weeks in the new NFL without a real Training Camp. The Dog Days of Summer for a football fan.

Nice ! I would”n’t be at all surprised to see us add one of those safeties ! Good work by the front office IMo
a realistic view of some Niners
Westberg is a definite need to bounce back from a shit season. The interior line is worrisome to me.
It’s so slow I clicked one of Bakken’s links.
Yeah I thought we would address the Oline more than we did. Hopefully Skule will be a good addition.
Every day, a little closer.
