Randy Moss working out as a 49er?

Am I the only San Francisco 49er fan that doesn’t want to see Randy Moss dress up in the red & gold?

I do not feel as if an aged veteran, arguably the 2nd best wide receiver in the history of football, has a place on the 49ers. Sure, SF lost to the (eventual Super Bowl winning) New York Giants with only 1 pass for 3 yards to a receiver. It’s common knowledge that Jed York, Jim Harbaugh, Trent Balke, and company will be looking for a few wideouts before the season starts. But folks, let’s go young. Let’s train rookies or go with some younger free agents.  Continue reading “Randy Moss working out as a 49er?” Randy Moss working out as…

Could the 49ers pick up a Steel?

(.. do you see what I did there? Steal? Steelers? bwahaha…)

The expiration date to lock up the NFL’s franchise players has come and gone, and there are a few receivers to take a look at in free agency. I wrote about Marques Colston from the Saints, but there’s another possibility out there that won’t break the 49ers’ bank.

This is the most enticing argument for chasing after a young, talented restricted free agent such as Mike Wallace, who might qualify as the best deep-threat receiver in the NFL. NFC West fans might remember Wallace’s 95-yard touchdown reception against Arizona last season, or his 53-yard reception against Seattle, or his 46-yarder against St. Louis. Wallace would give the 49ers the deep-threat wideout their rotation has been lacking.

There are a few factors to consider for both the team and the free agent:  Continue reading “Could the 49ers pick up a Steel?” Could the 49ers pick up a…

The Saints have Brees locked up, but what about Marques Colston?

Just about anyone who watches football knows that the Saints have one of the best high-powered offenses in the National Football League. Quarterback Drew Brees consistently has 11 guys who catch a football from him at some point in the game. The guy who has been on the top of that list for 6 years is Marques Colston, who is about to hit the free agent market.

The Saints have numerous players they need to lock up before free agency starts; it begin with Drew Brees, but no one knows when it will end, or with whom. With the emergence of Tight End Jimmy Graham, can the Saints afford to let Colston go instead of signing him to another 5 years?

Colston was a 6th round draft pick out of Hofstra, essentially a no-namer. He is still young at the age of 28, and across his 6 years he has 449 receptions going for 6,230 yards, averaging over 1,000 yards per season. View the highlight video:
