State of the Team Stately Statement

Still lots of free agents to deal with. Still a lot of holes to fill.

Still got Jimmy. Funny, he’s all over the airwaves doing ads suddenly.

Here’s who we have lost, who we got, who’s still unsigned. As I said earlier, Tomlinson is the only one I really didn’t want to see go. Jones is a drag, but we should be able to fill his role between Givens and Willis.

UPDATE: The Niners sign ex-Niner and Seahawk-last-year Kerry Hyder to a one-year deal.

Will not Return

RB Trenton Cannon (UFA, Titans)
OL Tom Compton (UFA, Broncos, 1-yr)
DT D.J. Jones (UFA, Broncos, 3-yr, $30M)
RB Raheem Mostert (UFA, Dolphins, 1-yr, $3.125M)
WR Trent Sherfield (UFA, Dolphins, 1-yr)
DL Kentavius Street (UFA, Saints)
OL Laken Tomlinson (UFA, Jets, 3-yr, $40M)
CB K’Waun Williams (UFA, Broncos, 2-yr, $7M)

Restricted Free Agents – I’m sure we sign these two

LB Azeez Al-Shaair (2nd-round tender, nearly $4M)
OL Daniel Brunskill (tendered right-of-first-refusal, $2.43M)

Returning 49ers

OL Jake Brendel (RFA, 1-yr extension)
LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (ERFA, 1-yr extension)
DL Kevin Givens (ERFA, 1-yr extension)
RB JaMycal Hasty (ERFA, 1-yr extension)
DT Maurice Hurst (UFA, 1-yr extension)
CB Dontae Johnson (UFA, 1-yr)
DL Jordan Willis (UFA, 1-yr)
RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (UFA)

New 49ers

LB Oren Burks (Packers, 2-yr, $5M, Burks)
DE Kerry Hyder (Seahawks, 1-yr, $1.5M, PFN)
WR/RS Ray-Ray McCloud (Steelers, CBS Sports, ESPN)
S George Odum (Colts, 3-yr, $10.95M, PFF)
DT Hassan Ridgeway (Eagles, 1-yr, $2.5M, ESPN)
CB Charvarius Ward (Chiefs, 3-yr, $42M, $26.7M guaranteed, ESPN)

I like the C Ward signing, but like their baseball brethren, the Niners are not making a big splash in free agency. For all the turmoil of last season, we were a couple plays away from the Super Bowl.

That being said, they better nail this draft. DB, DE, and O line depth are still big concerns.

    I hope all the new additions can get on the same page. If nothing else we have had spectacular team chemistry going on for years. This off season we have done a lot of work to solidify our defense but if we are to throw Lance out there we need some quality OL’s to be our starters. I just hope we have them when the time comes. Maybe Banks will pan out but i am not holding my breath. We shall see.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Banks is a big if right now. They are banking a lot on him based on little.

    Still think they should just solidify the future at Center since Mack has maybe this season left and will turn 37.I wanted Creed Humphrey last year and they passed and he ended up AllPro in his 1st year with the Chiefs!! I like the centers, Linderstrem (sp?) are Jurgens from Nebraska in mid picks rounds if available.Who’s the backup Center right now Brendel?

      Looks like the draft or udfa’s is where we are gonna get em. There have been a lot of OL’s change teams in the last 2-3 weeks and we haven’t got any of them. Still a lot of time but doubt we do much more in FA.

    There will also be some overpriced castoffs we can vulture.

    Jesus. Sad sad day for music fans. Taylor Hawkins, drummmer for Foo Fighters died.

    Dude was a great drummer and fronted a cool band that played hard 70s music called Chevy Metal as well. Saw the Foos a couple times.

    Dave Grohl must be devastated. I was watching g a decent interview with both of them
    About their raising kids and how touring now was much different than back in the day.

    Man that sucks.
