      This is what I despise from our franchise. They play this wait game crap and get burned everytime. There is no sense of urgency even when our players get ripped from us. Bryant Johnson should be a priority right now to help our now anemic receiving core. I think waiting on Briggs could work in our favor but they should really bring in Demorrio Williams asap.

            Why can't he?
            He's played under Herm Edwards for 2 years. I don't see why he couldn't.

            Sure he wouldn't play a SS. But, he's good in coverage, he has the size, mentality, motivated, and would provide depth even if he doesn't have the same speed that'd be necessary for a cornerback due to his age. He'll be a good asset as a FS.

              Stop Gap. We are not that close to being contenders IMO, I would pass on Law

                well, ill agree to pass on him because he would only be a stop gap but i think with a healthy defense and hester doing his thing, we could be a .500 team and in the NFC, thats almost enough to contend.

                we get a few lucky breaks and who knows....it all depends on the offense though

                  I hope we take a look at OL Maurice Williams. He can play RT or OG and I liked what I saw from him in the few Jags games I watched. He could give us some flexibility with the draft.

                    Why in the world would we sign a 34 year old ex-cornerback to provide depth at safety? Just look at what you're saying and tell me it makes sense.

                    And free safties in our scheme need a ton of speed because they are covering half the field. I mean....honestly....


                    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                      well, theres a bunch of teams interested in the released javon walker and im glad to say we're not among them

                      "According to Michael Smith of ESPN.com, at least ten teams have inquired about receiver Javon Walker's availability -- the 49ers, Bills, Buccaneers, Panthers, Raiders, Vikings, Giants, Redskins, Cowboys, and Eagles."

                      phew....one injury prone headache we wont be adding

                        Looks like Bryant Johnson is close to agreement w/ the Bills or has agreed to contract. I am not sold on Hackett, I like him, but I am not sold on his potential to be a good reciever, and stay healthy. I hope that we now look at Hardy/Sweed/Urrita and some other WRs in the draft.

                          boy, i wasnt really all for signing johnson anyway but man, to see the well keep getting dryer.....its not a good feeling.

                          as for some rookies, hardy and sweed probably arent going to be our picks in round 1 and i highly doubt theyre still around at our 2nd rounder. and urrutia....eh, hes probably a late round, developmental kind of guy at best.

                          its looking more and more like bradley and hester as 1 and 2 right now. loads of potential there as we've discussed many a times here, but very little proven....

                          i think we should add a big bodied WR with one of our 2 3rd rounders. adrian arrington, adarius bowman, simpson, nelson, etc...theyd all fit the bill. out of those guys, i think id prefer arrington

                            I wasnt to h ot on the Johnson signing either, but I think it would have been a little more stable. Maybe Sweed and Hardy dont make it out of round 1, but remember who our GM is, he will look for a trade down ;).

                            I dont know much about Bowman or Simpson, but I wouldnt want Nelson on the team..probably b/c of the overhype here lol. And I agree a big bodied reciever, I like Monk a lot too as a later round pick, and like I said, I wouldnt mind Urrita b/c of his height, and decent speed

                              I hope we sign someone on offense. I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope we can bring in Maurice Williams and Hackett.

                                Im crossing my fingers for Jacob Bell, or Jake Scott depending on whether he can flourish outside of Indy (which I hear is a knock on their OLmen). Thats about it now.
