The Niners are still making moves, they signed Jaquiski Tartt to a one-year deal, and they signed strong safety Tavon Wilson to a one-year deal as well. They also kept Jason Verrett (yay!) and Dontae (what, me cover?) Johnson. I guess we need bodies in camp, so we’ll see how this shakes out, but with Tavarius Moore already signed, we have some things to work out. But I like the signings as we need to keep the pieces ready, and Wilson at least has been in a lot of strong systems, and looks to be a steadying presence in the absence of Richard Sherman.
That being said, the move we are still dreaming on, Deshaun Watson, has hit a series of roadblocks. Either Watson did nothing wrong (wink wink) at the massage parlors, didn’t get the happy ending he thought he deserved after getting a massage, or he’s a major douche nozzle who is playing the “do you know who I am?” card and getting aggressive.
I’m no lawyer, but when these things happen and the people involved do not file criminal charges, wait for a year to come forward, and their lawyer trolls for others to come forward to join the gravy train, it smacks of a money grab.
No idea how this works out, but fortunately for the six teams supposedly in the running for Watson, there is no timetable to the trade. This situation can at least be dealt with before any decisions are made, but all involved would like to get this taken care of before the draft.
Like sands through the hourglass, these are the days of our lives . . .
