Ashley Lelie a Niner

a-lelie.pngUpdate: Sorry been away for a bit, but it’s official Lelie has signed a two year deal with the 49ers. The deal is worth $4.3 million contract with a $2 million signing bonus and $3.2 million in the first year. With incentives, the deal can max out at $6 million over the two years.

*****
Profootballtalk ,who so far this free agency period has been pretty spot on with their reporting, is saying the free agent receiver Ashley Lelie is expected to sign a deal within the next couple days. They are reporting that the frontrunners are the Texans and 49ers. It should also be noted that last year the 49ers did try and trade for Lelie, but did not want to give up what the Broncos were asking. I could see this happening mainly because the 49ers tried trading for Clements last season and look where he is now.

  1. ehhhh….not too crazy about this guy

  2. not a good move

  3. Wow. You gotta be kidding me. You drop A. Bryant for this trash? Horrid move.

  4. If we didn’t overpay, than I don’t mind. It couldn’t considering where we stand right now at WR. I would love for us to get Stallworth or Horn.

  5. nooooooo go for stallworht man not him he is just like bryant come on hit up stallworht he wants to be here be smart man and try an pursue porter i know he wont talk till monday but make him a good offer he was the heart of that pitt D he is a great leader to have on ur team he will make the other guys better players on an off the field come on niners im happy with what we have done so far to bad about thomas i was hoping for him but when you have porter out there you just dont let him go like that make a move for porter an stallworth guys who love to play non lelie a disturbance we dont need that were a young team heading in the right direction come on lets go 49ers4life yeaaaaa!

  6. I meant, it couldn’t hurt considering where we stand right now at WR.

  7. Stallworth and Horn with Battle and Vernon Davis. How could you NOT like that? I’m not saying keep Horn forever, but a one or two year deal wouldn’t be bad. PORTER AND STALLWORTH are the quality priorities here and according to profootballtalk.com it is down to us and the Redskins with the Eagles obviously in there as well.

  8. look the point is if we sign this guy, we still have to sign Stallworth or Horn. In this case I would rather have Stallworth if we land Lelie. Lelie is a solid number two, that is a true statement; but a number 1? Give me a break. If we get this guy we gotta get someone else too

  9. I’m for Stallworth and Horn because Horn will give us what we need for a couple of years and leave…I don’t want to see Ashlie LELELELELE on our upcoming super bowl team.

  10. No! F LELIE! HE IS FREAKING HORRRRRRIDDDDDD! Pick up Donte for No. 1, and then pick up Meachem/Bowe/Rice via draft for No. 2

    Picking up Lelie is like picking up R. Woods all over again.

  11. sign porter sign lelie and trade our picks for calvin johnson

  12. I seriously doubt we are trading up for CJ.

  13. I don’t think it would be that bad.

    Lelie 2006 stats

    REC YDS AVG LNG TD
    28 430 15.4 51 1

    Not great, but worth picking up if the price is right.

  14. yeah…it would be stupid for us to give up all of our picks just for this guy….we have a chance to put it ALL together this year if we sign Stallworth and Porter…then all we have to do is fix the fewer problems in the draft. Now I have mixed thoughts about drafting Ginn Jr. because then all of our receivers will be short besides battle. Willis, Carriker, or Branch…we aren’t going to get Landry.

  15. i hope not

  16. The way we´re handling Free agency we might actually go the CJ route.

  17. if we would trade up for CJ that would be great but i doubt we will we our in a fine spot to pick up dwayne jarret he is a freek ive seen him play his whole stay at sc get him in the first an anthony gonzalez or steve smith in the second that would be a great recieving core right there

  18. Yeah, those stats probably would have been better if Vick wasn’t too busy smoking pot all the time and ingnoring his receivers yelling, “ME ME ME ME!”

  19. if we would trade up for CJ that would be great but i doubt we will we our in a fine spot to pick up dwayne jarret he is a freek ive seen him play his whole stay at sc get him in the first an anthony gonzalez or steve smith in the second that would be a great recieving core right there yea

  20. We would have to give up most of our early picks…we’re talking 1-4th rounds because we would have to take the lions pick from then…….even then the Raiders might draft him if they get Aaron Rogers, Jake Plummer, or some other QB….maybe they’ll take Joe Thomas.

  21. We resigned WR Gilmore. He didn’t do much for me with his play last year….

  22. Jarrett is TURTLE slow….we could do way better than that. He is projected now as a early twenties or late teens pick. WE need to keep getting the best player available and at 11th spot we JUST WOULDN’T BE DOING THAT IF WE PICKED HIM.

  23. I would like to see Gilmore run back kickoffs or punts, the dude is fast.

  24. man,this year is gonna be sweet,just think lasy year we won 7 games with a less than ok defense(even though walt harris went to the pro bowl)and a young offense.now with a highly upgraded bad ass defense(were still not done upgrading)and a more developed offense, us niner fans should have high expectations coming into the 07 season. good to be back.

  25. We need to fix our WR positions before we can have high expectations.

    I’ll say it again. Sign Donte for No. 1, and use our second round draft pick for Meachem/Rice/Bowe to be our No. 2. Most logical move. We will not trade up for CJ.

  26. stallworth stallworth stallworth

  27. We need to sign Stallworth the Sacramento native and Joey Porter the Bakersfield native. And Draft ILB (WILLLIS) in the first and DE in the second.

  28. Imagine our linebackers, Joey Porter (LOLB) Patrick Willis (LILB) Brandon Moore (RILB) Manny Lawson (ROLB)

  29. To me, Ashlei Lelei will only be a good signing if we still end up picking up Stallworth. Now,if we don’t sign stallworth and go into the draft as Lelie as our best wide out, don’t be surprised we do trade up to try and get Calvin Johnson or just settle for either Ginn Jr. or Jarrett which i hope we do not sign Jarrett!!! I would be exstatic if we were to get Johnson even if trade away a couple of early round draft picks. He would be worth every draft pick

  30. what in the world ever happened to brandon williams?

  31. The Niners have made an offer to Donte Stallworth but the money is unknowned this was reported by sfgate.com

  32. Where where???!

  33. I REALLY hope that is ture

  34. I agree, Ashley Lelie would be a good sign if we also acquire Donte Stallworth. And for all you pessimists out there, remember, although Lelie’s stats are not great, he did lead the AFC in Average yards per reception in 2004 and 2005 (NFl.com), showing his potential to have big play ability. With that in mind, its also good to note that Michael Vick is not really known for his pure passing ability and could have been one of the reasons lelie didn’t fluster in Atlanta.

    Our team’s looking good and I cant wait to see who’s next in line to represent the Red n’ Gold next year! Go NIners!!!!

  35. This deal only legit if we still sign Stallworth. Then our offence will be set! ALEX SMITH, HARDCORE FRANK GORE, VERNON THE DUKE DAVIS, DANTE STALLWORTH, ASHLEY LELIE, ARNEZ BATTLE, MICHAEL ROBINSON!!!!

  36. ….IM NOT EVEN MENTIONING OUR D!! ESPECIALLY IS WE DO END UP SIGNING JOEY PORTER AND THEN DRAFTING ALAN BRANCH.THAT WOULD BE A MONSTER DEFENCE. I AM PRIMED AND READY TO GO FOR ’07.

  37. “49er News Country” there is nothing at SFGate.com that says the ’49ers have made an offer to Donte Stallworth. There is one story where it says they “are interested” in him. WHERE did you read that the had made an OFFER?

  38. WE NEED TO SIGN ASHELY LELIE.WE NEED BOTH LELIE AND STALLWORTH.IN THE DRAFT PICK UP JARRETT.WE NEED JOEY PORTER FOR OLB.gET THE REST OF OUR PLAYER IN THE DRAFT.

  39. Melvin Tutt, why do you want jarrett? he is slow! We wont need another receiver if we have two solid #2 receivers in Stallworth and Lelei and a solid #3 in Battle. Dont forget that we sill have the physical specimen in Vernon davis as our tight end. We won’t need Jarrett, he reminds me too much of Mike Williams.

  40. Joey Porter is a jackass…you don’t want that kind of player on your team.

  41. WE CAN NEED TO WORK ON ARE O-LINE

  42. WE NEED A GOOD LINEBACKER

  43. Can i get the link on that stallworth offer?

  44. I’m kinda surprised the 9ers aren’t looking for offensive line guys right now. Maybe they’re just too expensive. The truth is the offense isn’t going to do be able to do much (even with Gore, Davis, etc.) if they don’t have depth at the line and if they still have Kwame Harris out there.

  45. our o- line is in pretty good shape as long as Jennings and Allen are healthy. We need to focus more on getting Stallworth.

  46. What has Lelie ever done? What has Stallworth ever done?

    They’ve NOT produced when surrounded by good talent. We know that.

    We need neither. Horn or Moulds, please. Someone with good hands and work ethic, that Alex can rely on.

  47. Our o- line is pretty decent. Gore had alomost 1700 yards las year with that line. Our receiving core sucks right now. Thats our bigger need

  48. is L.Davis still out there??

  49. I agree with the Horn/Moulds comment. From what I understand, Lelie is basically a deep threat guy. That’s good, but maybe we could pick up a guy like that in the draft. By the way, I think the 9ers already have a #2 guy in Arnaz Battle…I like how he’s been improving.

  50. WE NEED PORTER AND DONTE STALLWORTH RIGHT FUCKIN NOW. NO IF ANDS OR BUTS ABOUT IT. WE NEED BOTH OF THOSE GUYS BADLY. I’M OVER HERE EXCITED AS FUCK WAITIN TO FIND OUT WHAT’S GOIN ON. I JUST DON’T WANT TO BE DISAPOINTED LIKE I WAS WITH THE ADALIUS THOMAS NEWS. FUCKIN FAGGOT DIDN’T EVEN VISIT OUR FACILITY, NEEDLE DICK BITCH ASS FAGGOT FUCK.

  51. Moulds? Horn? they are good but old!!! We are building for the futur. Think about it, Lelei was pretty good when he was with the Broncos because he had a good QB. He didn’t do as good with the Falcons, yeah Vick is an exciting QB but not a great passer. He is known more for breaking QB rushing records!! And for Stallworth, he is a solid #2 receiver, he was having a pro bown last year before Mcnab and himself got injured

  52. 1700 yards running left. Allen is not exactly a spring chicken. Smith needs more time in the pocket. The offense last year wasn’t spectacular…it was good, but not spectacular…even with Bryant.

  53. I wonder if Porter’s gay bashing reference to Winslow will effect a move to San Fran…just throwing it out there.

  54. WE CAN SIGN STOKELY AND LELIE IF WE CAN SIGN STALLWORTH.

  55. hey west check this article out about L.Davis:

    Word on the NFL street is that free-agent offensive lineman Leonard “Big” Davis, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2001 draft, is looking for $23 million in guaranteed money.

    We’re told that the request was made during a visit by Davis to the Cowboys.

    Consequently, the visit was a short one.

    Hey, if the guy was that good, the Cardinals’ line wouldn’t have been so bad. And the Cards would have used some of their staggering cap surplus to keep him.

    Next up for Davis is the Redskins. But if they weren’t ready to pay Derrick Dockery, why would they pay Davis?

  56. WE CAN’T SIGN STALLWORTH

  57. Wow, according to the 49ers website, Gilmore had a MUCH better year than I thought, yardage wise:

    In addition, the 49ers re-signed wide receiver Bryan Gilmore. Gilmore (6-1, 193) joined the 49ers as an unrestricted free agent last season. He played in all 16 games with three starts and finished the year with eight receptions for 1550 yards and one touchdown.

  58. hehe…Leonard Davis asking for $23 million…doesn’t he remember that he’s a huge bust. Maybe the 9ers could get Ryan Leaf to play LT.

  59. 8 catches for 1550 yards…that’s pretty good. Maybe they were counting yards he gained after he got pushed out of bounds or something…like driving home or traveling to St. Luis or something.

  60. On another note… By getting Franklin, does this mean the 9ers are probably not going to draft Okoye? I kinda liked him.

  61. I cant find anything on a Stallworth offer?

  62. WE JUST SIGN ASLEY LELIE

  63. Source?

  64. Indeed, Source?

  65. Forget lelie get stallworth and d jerett in the draft. Trade up for a late first round pick and get a lb

  66. Melvin Tutt…. Source on Lelie

  67. Free-agent wide receiver Ashley Lelie signed a two-year deal with the 49ers for $4.3 million, including a $2 million signing bonus. ON NFL.COM

  68. Or/and sign joey porter. Our secondary is good in lewis/roman and harris/clements. Both lines could use some help.

  69. hahhaha. MACHIAVELLI is hilarious. Sorry to burst “LAWRANCE’s” bubble but there is no way in hell Brian Gilmore had 8 catches for 1550 yards.

    First of all, that would have earned him a starting position in the probowl, secondly Antonio Bryant let the team in yards with 733 and lastly, having EIGHT catches and gaining 1550 would mean that Gilmore averaged 193.75 yards per Cacth!

    Remember guys, an NFL field from goaline to goaline is only 100 yards. Running sideways, running to the bench and running home does not count. Please stop with the erroneous facts. I understand that we’re all excited that the 49ers will dominate, but please, calm down people.

  70. THERE THE SOURCE

  71. i got to stop watching free agency.the first three signings where awsome.but now im watching good players being signed by other teams and it is starting to work my nerves.first the-pats signed thomas,rams signed tully cain,the browns sign,eric steinbach,ravens resign jarrett johnson.and now we are going to sign this fucking loser ashley lalie….his name sounds like a fucking p#ssys name to begin with.

  72. http://nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/10033511

    Thanks

  73. maybe 155 is what he meant.

  74. WELL WE NEED A WR AND WE HAVE ONE

  75. WELL WE NEED A WR AND WE HAVE ONE

  76. YES!!! we got him for VERY VERY cheap!!! Great deal!!! 4.3 mil for 2 years

  77. BRING ON STALLWORTH AND HORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  78. yeah…I don’t like the idea of spending 4 mil for a guy named Ashley.

    >

    Really? I thought they meant 15,500.

  79. I think that that is a good deal if we only are paying him that much. we still need two good recievers tho. stallworth, horn, bennett, or jerett.

  80. ummm…I’m faster???? It was HUMOR….. sheeesh…they made a mistake…

  81. all you guys talking about getting a 1 and 2 reciever need to shut up…A battle is great!!!! he is way underrated i wouldnt change a thing with him all we have to do is fine a new number one guy…picking up helllo brandon stokely for a 3 would be tits..donte would be a good one but draftinga rookie and thinking he is gonna be a number one reciever is kinda dreamin in color livin in black and white

  82. http://nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/10033511

  83. Is clements worth 80 mill over 8 years? i dont watch the bills very often. obviously hes good but is he worth that much?

  84. and as far as erroneous facts??? I cut and pasted that from the 49ers official site. Calm down….

  85. so when are we signing an ot to replace Kwame.

  86. WE NEED SOME LINEBACKER NOW

  87. Thre is nothing about a Stallworth “offer” anywhere. That guy made one post, and then dissapeared……Hey “Machiavelli,” you’re funny. We need more of that ’round here…How come there is soooo little news this afternoon? Whos’ at Santa Clara visiting?????? What the fuck is going-on? We need some more FA signings!!! We can’t stop now, and we got get’em before they’re all gone…Trust me on one thing – PORTER or BUNTA-CAIN would help ALOT!!!!!! PORTER is an ALL-PRO, and he would be driven to prove that hey ain’t finished! Those “old” guys always have a way of proving everyone wrong. Remember Rickey Jackson? Fred Dean? Jack Reynolds? Big Hands Johnson? Dave Washington? There’s a few you forgot, huh?

  88. >

    yeah…why was that guy jumping on you? I guess he just didn’t get it.

  89. Leonard Davis anyone?

  90. this coming up season let the bitch slapping begin!!!whos the bigest wet dream ashley lelie(because he cant get of the jam) vs kwame harris(hhhhhoooolllllddddding#77).

  91. hhhhhooooolllldddddiiiinnnggg#77

  92. haha my apologies LAWRANCE. im just irritated that everyone finds something to cry about regarding Nate clements being overpaid, Ashley lelie being useless or michael Lewis’ lack of cover skills; we gotta fully trust Mike Nolan’s plan, he knows what he’s doing

  93. Leonard Davis is a LT…and a bad one at that. We need a Right Tackle.

  94. WE NEED SOMEONE LIKE COLT CATO JUNE OR CAROLINA CHRIS DRAFT OR N.Y. GIANT BRANDON SHORT OR SEAHAWK D.D. LEWIS

  95. I wasn’t whining i have never seen this guy play.

  96. Ok well most players can play different positions. Kwame also is a left tackle that got movet to the right side when we signed him. Eric Heitmann is a left guard who now plays center. dumbass

  97. LEONARD DAVIS ALREADLY SIGN WITH A TEAM

  98. who?

  99. COWBOY IS TRIED TO SIGN HIM

  100. can i have an address cuz i dont see anything that he has been signed.

  101. everything says 49ers, cowboys, or redskins except for one that says he wants to go to the cowboys or redskins but we can pay him more.

  102. I SEE HE HAVN’T SIGN YET BUT IF WE CAN SIGN HIM WE CAN LOOK AT CHRIS VILLARLIEL G FROM BUFFALO OR ROSS VERBA G FROM DETROIT

  103. Where’s our spy in Santa Clara??…Fuck Leo. Davis. He’s another Kwame the Shame…….”Imfasterthanur” – You are totally RIGHT!!!!! TOTALLY! That Baltimore Defense he built and coached won the SuperBowl. It wasn’t their Offense with Dillfer.

  104. Remember in that radio interview Nolan was in that was posted on here a little while ago? He said that because FA was weak at WR, that he would rather trade for a wr then draft one.

  105. WE NEED A CENTER FOR THE O-LINE.WE NOT RESIGNING J=C JEREMY NEWBERRY

  106. WE NEED A CENTER FOR THE O-LINE.WE NOT RESIGNING J=C JEREMY NEWBERRY

  107. WE NEED A CENTER FOR THE O-LINE.WE NOT RESIGNING J-C JEREMY NEWBERRY

  108. Lelie is our I just heard it in ESPN radio is a two year deal with lots of incensitives that could go to 6 mil… I’m dissapointed we didn’t get Thomas here we all thought he was the sure thing and Clements was the outside shoot… Does anybody know why we did not get him? Did we not offer the same amount of money? IMO we are not drafting WR in the first round I think we are taking branch if he falls to us or the MLB Wilkings this guy has a hell of story and would be a great MLB for years… I think we are moving in the second round to get the WR that falls in the first second round.

  109. LIKE CENTER ROBBIE TOBECK WHO BLOCK FOR SEATTLE

  110. GIVE FRANK GORE TO A EXTENSION

  111. he only gets those incentives if he plays well so it will be good if he gets them and if not it was a good steal for the price.

  112. Clements came here because we gave him 80 mil over 8 years. its that plain and simple.

  113. THEY GOT LELIE!!!!!!!!

    2 year deal with the 49ers for $4.3 million, including a $2 million signing bonus.

  114. yep we got him, and for cheap. considering the cost, its not a bad signing. we need to build depth, just a #1 wont fix our WRs, so this is a good signing.

  115. I agree sqpot. we still need horn or stallworth, or even better both. they also have played together and should work well.

  116. IMFASTERHANUR,i trust nolan on the defensive side of football(because he was a defensive coach),but dont trust him on the offensive side,why do you think he is a free agent?did you count how many times he dropped the ball last year with the falcons(and with dever).but im still excited about lewis and clements though.

  117. Where did you see that Lelie was inked?

  118. WE NEED STALLWORTH TOO

  119. http://nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/10033511

    Cory said this on March 3rd, 2007 at 3:58 pm

  120. We need Stallworth or draft Robert Meachem

  121. or preferably dwayne jerett.

  122. This signing is more like a wash for dropping bryant… I think we are almost at the same level we were at WR this year

  123. http://nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/10033511

    ughhhh i didnt want him he is a cancer like owens or bryant we should make a serious run at stallworth and porter then il be happy with our performance this offseason yeaaaa 49ers4life

  124. Yall In here SUCK MY DICK DICK EATERS?? WHY ARE U ON MY DICK SO HARD THAT IT HURTS, I can Feel It Tickle aaa i need to scratch my dick!!! I SAY This Should be a niner!! if not yall can suck MY DICK SO HARD THAT I CAN TASTE IT SO DICK IT Mothafuckas

  125. No way. AB is 1000X better than ashley. Also when i said dwayne jerett i meant in front of meachem not stallworth, much rather have stallworth.

  126. some FA I wish we could look at
    FB Justing Griffin… he could be short yardage RB and an upgrade at FB…we had 2 FB last year why not again
    MLB Napoleon Harris he is a solid MLB with starting experience
    and he is younger than spragan
    WR Kevin Curtis he could take the spot of gilmore I know we just signed gilmore but Curtis could be an imediately upgrade

  127. Baaqi thats gross,
    Anyways i think that Ashley Lelie is not it, we need atleast drew bennet or Donte Stallworth

  128. If Lelie wears #81, I’ll freak. Until then, I have no problem sigining players with talent, for a good price, who have someting to prove. Michael Lewis and Ashley Lelie have a lot to prove.
    I’d love to get another vet receiver, like Horn or Stallworth, to work with Vernon. By the way, what’s the scoop on E.J.? I haven’t heard his name at all, and if he and Vernon are healthy, along with Lelie and another vet receiver, well…..then that ain’t bad.
    I love the Niners.

  129. (Baaqi may be delusional…or perhaps he’s fantasizing)

    Who wants to bet that Lelie is going to wear #81…hehe.

  130. Well I think that we should get mickey mouse as a WR,(LOL)

  131. >

    uh…good one. I don’t know, Mickey was a little stiff in the shuffle.

  132. Look, guys you don’t need to have a contingent of great WRs to be successful (the Colts aside). Look at the Chargers, Patriots, Eagles, etc. Lelie will be a fine edition if he doesn’t become a distraction.

  133. MY PANTS ARE WET
    MOM!

  134. Nah Lelie wont wear 81….he wore 85 in denver and he cant get that because of vernon davis….he wore 87 in atlanta and nobody on our roster wear 87…im gueesing he’ll stick to 87

  135. phew.

  136. nah lelie should wear 81 if not wear 8437238742345

  137. if the 49ERS (not the pats,eagles exc.) need to be successful.we need a good receivers.freddie solomon,jerry rice,john taylor,terrell owens and dwite clark. the past doesnt lie!before that we were nobodies.ask nolans dad.anyway the pats troy brown was there guy back then,the eagles had owens,the charges eric parker stepped up this year.so yes you do need a receiver.

  138. So, this is interesting: I’m hearing Joe Horn chatter, but not one word about Eric Moulds, who is one year younger than Horn with very similar career stats. He (Moulds) also played 16 games (with Carr and Houston) last year compared to Horn’s 10 games (with Brees). Could Moulds be a steal? I’d still prefer Stallworth, but if it comes down to a discounted Moulds versus a more pricey Horn….???

    Horn’s stats:
    http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/1511

    Moulds’ stats:
    http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/1196

  139. Well…you need a receiver…but do you need to sign 2 or 3 big free agents at the same position in one year?

  140. Also, all the guys you mentioned (except for Eagles with Owens, which of course was a mega-disaster), were drafted as franchise players…not picked up towards the end of their careers via free-agency.

  141. I say no if you do that we’ll never give arnaz battle a chance to continue yo get better…i love what battle has done for us…he’ll only get better….we have lelie…if we get another receiver it would be only 1 more in free agency then probably draft a receiver 2nd or 3rd round unless we trade up to get the ultimate CJ

  142. i meant to get better not “yo get better” lol

  143. Those are good points. I’m not sure that Horn or Moulds qualify as “big free agents,” since they’re toward the end of their careers, so my hope would be to snag Moulds (who’s getting no press, unlike Horn) for a good deal to be a solid but not primary receiver. But, you’re right: If we have Vernon step-up big time; Lelie provide the deep catches Bryant had last year (and not get suspened during the two biggest games of the season); Battle make a few more catches, and E.J. play a whole season with Vernon…then maybe we don’t need another WR. I mean, afterall, we do have the stud that is Frank Gore (though we need a guard).

  144. hope we can keep Erick Johnson… I have not hear any body calling his name.
    we should look at CB Hood…

  145. No to Stallworth. Lelie is enough of a career underachiever, we don’t need another.

  146. Yes it is official that wr. Ashlie Lelie has signed for 2 years just for only 4. something million. Not bad and now we must get track star Stallworth. ASAP

  147. I say we should trade to get a reciever, but who?

  148. we got Lelie…we’re not going to sign any more WRs…not until after the draft.

  149. i may not be the fastest but i have some damn good hands

  150. i like arnaz battle too.i felt like i was the only one chanting for battle when bryant got suspended. i even told him good luck on his web sight. owens might of been a distraction but he still helped the eagles get to the superbowl before he became a distraction.im not dogging you or trying to bash you we are on the same team here.but they did get there teams to a superbowl in there prime.

  151. You’ve convinced me – we’re doing well with receivers. And I agree our focus during free agency will be elsewhere now, like LB?? Guard?? What do we need most right at this point?

  152. except for parker because the chargers never got there.

  153. D1800 you said it right get stallworth ASAP and I think he’s next maybe that’s why they didn’t pick up benett even though that would’ve been sick I like the signing of lelie and you figure if they just flashed on ESPN NEWS that he was signed and didn’t announce a specific price lets us know it was for cheap.

    DON’T WORRY YALL STALLWORTH IS NEXT HE WANTS TO BE IN SAN FRAN!

  154. we’ve had enough distractions….lets not make it any harder for alex smith…get guys that will just play as a team

  155. we definatley should start pursuing stallworth before he gets signed elsewhere

  156. jesus 150 comments?!

    Stallworth is too expensive people, move on. He’s not even a true #1 anyway… better to just draft a couple more projects and hope one pans out.

    Getting a RT is far more important at this point.

  157. you have a point…we’re all done with kwame…who’s do u think were more a bust kwame or rashaun woods….hell id say kwamelol…atleast rashaun never got a chance to be bad in the regular season lol

  158. We need Stallworth and we need him now!!! If we get Stallworth, the niners will have two legit #2 receivers in Dante and Ashley Lelie and a soon to be good # 2 Battle. Thats 3 good solid receivers. Lets keep in mind, Lelie underachieved in Atlanta, but what receivers thrive with Michel Vick as QB? name me one. He was a good receiver in Denver. Now Stallworth, this is for the doubters ( aka justin ) Stallworth was having a Pro bowl year before he and Mcnabb got injured. He was having monster games. Now imagine him thriving with two other decent receivers, a freak of a tight end in The Duke and dont forget HARDCORE FRANK GORE!!! We will be in a better position than last year.

  159. WHISTLINGMOUNTAIN, Why do you want to keep Lelei as our number 1 option and draft a WR this year? That will kill Alex smith!! are you dumb? We need another solid receiver. Yes, he is not a #1 receiver but he is solid, doesn’t cause trouble and is a 49er fan, he will be loyal. Its the best fit, especially since we signed Lelie.

  160. I think you guys are too busy building all-star teams and not being realistic…like I said…no more WRs will be signed until after the draft…if Stallworth’s gone, so be it.

  161. How is it an allstar game MACHIAVELLI? who are we gonna sign after the draft? thats what i thought.

  162. Smith needs a supporting cast and a rookie is not gonna help, we need the best receiver option out there and that is stallworth

  163. YO SOMEBODY’S USING MY NAME SO WHAT EVER BULLSHIT LOGIC THIS PUSSY MIGHT POST NEXT I’M NOT SAYING IT IN THE WALT HARRIS ARTICLE I SAID I’M NOT USING BAAQI NOR THE REAL BAAQI NO MORE SO AFTER THIS POST THAT’S IT THE THE REAL ME I WISH I CAN FIND OUT WHO THIS PUSSY IS SO I CAN FUCKING KILL HIM EXCUSE ME BUT I’M REALLY FUCKING HEATED NOW I’M GOING TO FIND OUT WHO THIS DUDE IS, YOU BETTER HOPE I DON’T FIND OUT!!!!!!!!!!

  164. That’s right no more rookie wideouts.Unless we get Stallworth or J Horn because then the rookie wr would learn from veterans instead of learning by playing time. Hell even T.O. learned from J. Rice.

  165. battle is awesome he just never plays

  166. anyone got any news on Stallworth or Porter

  167. We need someone with SURE HANDS, guys. Davis is the focal point, Lelie is our speedster, Battle’s good for gimmick plays… we need someone who’s CLUTCH. That is NOT Stallworth. He’d be a colossal waste of money now, on top of signing Lelie. They’re too similar.

  168. 49ers for life heres some news on Stallworth:
    A league source tells us that, although no visits have been arranged for receiver Donte’ Stallworth, several teams are interested.

    The problem, as we understand it, is that the interested teams are at a level well below Stallworth’s expectations. And there likely won’t be any visits until someone gets closer to Stallworth’s price — or Stallworth’s price comes down.

  169. our wide recievers blow right now arnaz battle is a good number three wide reciever, and a slightly below average number two… ashley lelie although not great himself is a decent upgrade at a need postiion and his deal is relatively cheap….so good sign

    porter for the same type of deal…and stallworth would be great

    alan branch first round plzzzzz

  170. still need to maintain the chemistry on the team don’t forget…i think we should just draft a wr in the 2nd rd.. we can find a #1 reciever in the draft…i also think we are going to pull back pretty hard on free agants i have a feeling with nolan talking about beginning middle end which was his plan during the offseason…didnt you guys like adam snyder at rt…draft backups…we need to put baas at rg what the fuck he was big ten offensive lineman of the year and he is good its about time we start playing him in and out with smiley…what do you guys think

  171. man we gotta get stallworth and porter. With those two guys we’ll be a true playoff team, and thats not even including the draft!!! could you imagine if we a get a real stud in the draft and we make a deep run in the playoffs. Just a thought lol 😀

  172. also wouldnt mind trading up to get calvin johnson…unlikely i know but what about our first rd and a fourth rd this year and our 1st or 2nd rd next year i really wouldnt mind that..he is that good

  173. I say go for it because baas is strong and experienced.

  174. omg if i hear one more person mention Calvin Johnson i’m gunna go nuts. Look ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. The end

  175. haha ok 49er for life thats cool…the thing is i said what you said yesterday then i just mentioned him it is old its done agreed

  176. sorry

  177. its ok lol

  178. everyone would love him to come here but it wont happen. Its fun to dream tho Greg lol 🙂

  179. vernon davis 13 touchdowns this year if healthy and if we dont get anymore receivers.has anyone signed offensive tackle max starks yet?and erickson we need a new post ,this one is getting to long.

  180. ashley isnt really that bad he had over 1000 yards when he started the whole season

  181. You know it is plausible that the 49ers could trade down to #3 and get CJ if he’s still there. Many analysts are saying that if the Raiders pass him, the Lions are never going to draft ANOTHER WR and Cleveland has other needs. The Bucs would take him without a question, but if the 9ers used a few of their 10 picks plus some more for next year, it could happen (especially since Cleveland will probably be looking for a trade and just wait for Brady Quinn or Marshawn Lynch to come to them…with the 11th pick?). Should they? It’s a risk and it may cost them a handful of picks they could use to build a team around. Rarely have teams that traded a lot of picks for one high pick been the benificiary. I think the 9ers would be better by just holding out a #11 and using a couple of their later picks to trade into the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

  182. max starks was tendered by the steelers

  183. damn Starks is a good player too
    thnks for the info Greg

  184. What do you guys feel about drafting Paul Posluszny if we get the chance???

  185. thanx greg for that>>>> starks news

  186. …to continue…I must say, it is becoming less likely that the 9ers will stay at #11…there isn’t that much for them. Either they trade up and get a DE like Adams or Anderson, or even CJ, or they trade down and get a LB like Willis/Timmons/Spencer or even a WR like Jarret or Bowe. We shall see. If it was me, I would trade down, take Willis…get maybe a high 2nd round pick or two (with some of my other picks) and really clean up with solid backup players for the future, especially for the O and D line.

  187. wow Greg I apologize. John Clayton has just reported that the Lions no longer have a serious interest in Joe Thomas, and Adrian Peterson due to their recent free agent signings. Their only other option would be Quinn who could be drafted a little later. They might be looking to trade the pick. There is a slight chance that we could trade up. But it is SLIGHT.

  188. if we got paul posluszny i would buy his jersey immediately

  189. huge fan of his

  190. ernie sims?

  191. i don’t watch penn state games, but i have to admit that Posluszny at least looks like Urlacher.

  192. i am from pa and i am a huge penn state fan trust me he is a beast

  193. i think if he is there in the 2nd round we have to take him b/c derek smith sucks and he could take his starting role without a problem

  194. im from PA too..where you from??

  195. why dont we try to trade with another team in the league who has a #1 WR how about with cleveland for Braylon Edwas it is just a thought they could use all the picks they need or we charles rogers a shot or we trade for mike wiliams in detriot i know i am going to get blasted for this so let me have it

  196. why dont we try to trade with another team in the league who has a #1 WR how about with cleveland for Braylon Edwas it is just a thought they could use all the picks they need or we charles rogers a shot or we trade for mike wiliams in detriot i know i am going to get blasted for this so let me have it. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  197. i am from erie you?

  198. gettysburg

  199. im from your adult book store

  200. I’m not saying stallworth will not produce in San Fran, but he was not the number one receiver in new orleans. He just happened to be the # 1 receiver in philly when he was healthy. To be honest that is not saying much considering McNabb and Garcia spread the ball pretty evenly. You would expect for Stallworth to have big numbers in Philly he’s the deep threat as we say. Bottom line we need Joey Porter to give us that Nasty back. I don’t no if we have been hurt so bad by the A.T. deal our memory has mistakened us, but we need a O-lineman. DO NOT FORGET THE KWAME HARRIS HIGHLIGHTS. WE WOULD IMPROVE 2 TO 3 GAMES ALONE IF WE HAD SOMEONE SOLID. The key is time back there for Alex. I don’t care if we had chad johnson and steve smith with no time no playoffs. Remember were not the only team getting better.

  201. the more i think about it, i like ashley lilie.i think he will get better going up against nate clements in practice every day.now we have a wide receiver , cornerback,nose tackle and a saftey all in two days.who is next to be in the red and gold.

  202. rams signed bennett for 6 yrs 30 million that is way to much for him good for them fucking retards…i like him but that is way to much lelie was a way better value good move nolan and co.

  203. Any word on Cato June ? he’s from Cali. Also Brian Simmons he’s a good player. Not saying not to sign Porter. How do you guys feel about adding either one of these players to the team ?

  204. we got some good new players now.i just hope our new offensive coaching staff can get the players in the end zone this year.your right greg that is way to much for benett.i hope we get some offensive line help along with a pass rusher in the draft now.but we still have time in free agentcy to get more help.

  205. Someone mentioned this on another thread, and I thought it was a very good idea. Why do you think Nolan won’t keep Johnson at Tight End, and maybe move Davis into the slot or another receiver?
    We need to put his speed to good use in the open.
    …just a thought…

  206. 204 comments erickson are you alright do you want us to send you an ambulance…worried about you buddy..lol

  207. Lawrence that would be beautiful. Let’s call Nolan and ask him.

  208. Lawrance, I live down in San Diego so I see a bunch of Charger games. I’m not too worried about the Niner offense without a true #1, because if you saw what the Charger offense could do when they didn’t even have a receiver that would start on any other team, but they had Gates and Tomlinson, they still moved the ball. If the Niners are creative with Davis, they can get by without a dominating receiver.

    I do think though with Davis’ emphasis on blocking he’ll be a much more rounded tight end this year, but sending him in motion or out in the slot will open up a lot with his speed and size.

  209. Just was thinking about it i think this is the best WR for the the 9ers and the offense we run. Ashley’s worst yards per catch season was 15 yards, and his best was 20 yards a catch. (THAT MEANS A TON OF DEEP BOMBS ARE THROWN TO HIM AND ONLY HALF THE TIME HE CATHCES THEM BECAUSE HE ONLY GETS AROUND 50 RECEPTIONS A YEAR). Do you realize how that fucks up the D-fense on the other side trying to stop GORE and put 8 in the box. The VD, GORE, LELIE is the best combo for the type of Offense the 9ers run.

  210. No. Having an extra “DECENT” WR will be better. Whether it be a draft pick or Donte Stallworth, we still need 1 more decent WR. We have the worst WR corp in the league as of right now. So don’t get your hopes up with Lelie being our #1.

  211. Ok…Lelie can do what Bryant did (and without the off-field stuff). We now need to start thinking about a back-up for Frank Gore (prone to injuries). How about Musa Smith (ravens)?

  212. I haven’t heard too much about what was said when they released Bryant. Any chance he’ll just be resigned?

    And Jeff, I agree with you. We need a legit back up for Gore’s knees.

  213. Your right Jeff. Although I think we will handle that in the draft.

  214. Mike Robinson is the answer man!!!!

  215. robinson is good but even me being a fan of robinson if gore went down for the season robinson could not take all those snaps he is good short yardage back for tough yards….i would love to get michael bush in the third but i dont think he will slip that far…dont pick up a fa we can draft that position…build through draft supplement through fa…have to bring in our own guys especially with eight picks in first four rounds

  216. i feel that the 49ers need to move around mike robinson,like the steelers used kordel steward,line him up at quarterback,runningback and wide receiver since every one thinks we need one(wide receiver.

  217. Well Some people like this and others dont but it doesnt matter
    because he’s ours and i agree with what jeff said about how ashley will do what antiono did just without the drama i dont see him as a number 1 guy at all but there should be a good postion battle against him and Arnaz for the number 2 wide reciver postion.

  218. does anyone have an accurate cap room # that we have left i would greatly appreciate it thanks

  219. Robinson has talent. I just don’t think were using him properly. Hopefully this will be a better year for him.

  220. Yo, Lelie is a Niner. Yay Ashlie!!

  221. thanks tsimsniner,thats what i was trying to say in my last statement.

  222. fffiiifty dolla………ffffiffffty dolla…greg.i dont know how much eather.

  223. 220 comments damm thats alot.

  224. I CAN LIVE WITH THE LELIE DEAL ONLY BECAUSE WE CUT BRYANT! HOWEVER, THIS POSITION IS IN NEED OF A SERIOUS UPGRADE. LELEIE IS A SOLID # 3 AT BEST!

  225. nah if he comes out and plays like he did in denver he is #2 or maybe even #1….im not so sure that atlanta had the right coaching staff for him….that wasnt a good fit for him…Jerry Sullivan will definately mature him like he’s done all our receivers here

  226. his success in atlanta had nothing to do with the coaches. odd, every reaceiver in atlanta’s been a bust. how much help are they gonna get at wideout for vick before they realize the problem is vick. i hope they do trade up for johnson. maybe people will realize not every receiver can be a bust, and vick’s the one fucking things up there.

  227. I love bein a 9er right about know!! Jus gettin Clemens is BIG AND YES the niners WILL sign Joey Porter trust me!! He is a Bakersfield boy an would love to play around the corner from home,not to mention we got major $$$ to throw his way to bring that SWAGGER to the RED AN GOLD!!!

  228. ANYONE have news on the uni’s for next year? The bright red sure would look good from now on!! will they switch back?

  229. ANYONE have news on the uni’s for next year? The bright red sure would look good from now on!! will they switch back?

  230. last I heard we were switching back

  231. regarding the uniforms, If Im not mistaken, Mike Nolan and company would like to change back to the throwback uniforms but, for some odd reason, the policy takes 2 years before any changes can be made.

    I remember reading that on 49ers.com during the season; but i could be wrong.

  232. we are in trouble now…

  233. I like this move. he runs a 4.3 40 and is 6-3. dont forget he was 19th overall selection in 2003. he has just played with terrbile o-fences in Denver and Atlanta. He could be a great fit.

  234. denvers offense wasnt horrible when lelie was there

  235. mike robinson could be a star on this team: running, pashing, catching, returning, etc…

  236. he aint worth it

  237. Lelie is a great pick up. He has size and the speed to stretch the field. Dont forget he was once a 1st round talent when he was drafted by the broncos and had a 1000 yard season before the broncos aquired javon walker. He wants to be a top reciever, so he went to Atlanta and we all know about Vicks arm, it comes second to his legs and the Falcons did not have a very threatening passing attack. I think this is a steal and he could turn out like Anquain Boldin when Sullivan is done with him. He can be the top guy, espessially if him and Smith build some chemistry. Good job Niners, maybe for the first time in 4 years when i tell my friends and family im watching the game i wont have to refer to them as “My god damn niners”

  238. does this guy block well in the run game though??
