What Now?

sf-logo.pngWell it’s been five days since the start of free agency and it appears as if the Niners moves may have come to a standstill. The 49ers have been busy this offseason and Nolan and Co. are slowing putting the pieces in place. Not only did they sign five new faces, but they also locked up current ones. Here is a quick breakdown of what the 49ers have done so far this offseason.

Players Re-signed:
Mark Roman
Keith Lewis
Bryant Young
Bryan Gilmore
Donald Strickland
Moran Norris
Tony Wragge
Walt Harris (contract extended)

Players Signed (new faces)
Nate Clements
Michael Lewis
Aubrayo Franklin
Ashley Lelie
Tully Banta Cain

On the horizon:
The 49ers have a decision to make in regards to punter Andy Lee, the Steelers made him an offer on Tuesday and they have seven days to match or they receive the Steelers sixth-round pick. Also Eric Johnson has visited the Saints and the Dolphins are showing interest in Maurice Hicks. Aside from these three the 49ers other free agents will likely not be coming back. The 49ers also need to start deciding on the future of Frank Gore.

The Draft:
Here is the breakdown of the 49ers draft picks. They have ONE pick in the first round (No. 11); ONE pick in the second (No. 42); ONE pick in the third round (No. 76), plus an expected compensatory pick for losing Julian Peterson: THREE picks in the fourth round (the Redskins’ for the Brandon Lloyd trade, their own, and the Jets’ for the Kevan Barlow trade), plus an expected compensatory pick for losing Andre Carter. The 49ers also have ONE pick apiece in the fifth and sixth rounds. They don’t have a seventh-rounder because of the Trent Dilfer trade. (Source: Matt Maiocco)

Now we just have to sit back and wait to see if any more players get signed, if so don’t look for them to be big name players. And then wait for the draft.

  1. Such a long wait. Can we get pre-season started soon?

  2. I hope we keep Mo Hicks..damn we have a lot of draft picks

  3. We should try to keep Lee…what good is a 6th round pick going to do us when we already have 10. Maybe they’re going to do a bunch of trades to end up with like 5 1st round picks like I used to do Madden.

  4. –do IN Madden–

    that typo could cost me.

  5. Maybe we should trade Kwame, Hicks, Lee, Johnson, and Derek Smith for draft picks so that we can corner the market and take over the NFL.

  6. I think lee’s a great punter, and he proved that he can kick well throughout the season. Losing a punter will just add put more on our plate in terms of filling holes.

  7. i dont really think there are too many more holes to fill. wr, mlb, rt. the other things we need are reserves like for gore and some replacement guys for b.y. and allen. other than that i think were in pretty good shape. cant wait to see two tight end sets with VD and delanie walker now that they have been in the system for a year and learned their routs. two big fast tight ends a sick running back, and a beast fullback in moran norris (probowl snub!!!) shit, they can line up and just escourt alex smith into the endzone. i cant wait, the year of the niner has returned!!! suddenly things look very bright for us fellas, cant say too much about the sorry ass raiders. their going in to what we just got out of but their sallary cap hell is gonna be way worse. muahahahahaha

  8. WE NEED A #1 WR AND MAYBE WE COULD TRADE DEREK SMITH AND KWAME HARRIS FOR LANCE BRIGGS

  9. LANCE BRIGGS IS NOT GOING ANY WHERE.WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME SOME ONE WAS HAPPY ABOUT BEING TAGGED?HE IS DOING THIS TO GET A LONG TERM DEAL DONE.

  10. Any word on what the Steelers offered Lee? I’d hate to lose him, he has gotten better each year in the league. To lose him would put the Niners back at square one (with most likely an unproven punter).

  11. LOL Machiavelli….. I’ll let whatever you and John have going alone!

  12. I hope the Niners can move K. Harris and D. Smith for picks or a player such as a wideout.

  13. why are we so down on smith he is old but you will not get much in return for him, and he still has some game left in him

  14. what wr do you really think that we could get for kwamgay harris and d smith, nobody that we want

  15. as of right now i am not worried about wr, what i am worried about is k harris. I have beaten this to death, but something needs to be done. What do you guys think?

  16. you are absolutely right but who do you think would want that waist of space, we need someone to replace him

  17. ya when he’s got two eyes he’s good. smith has been pretty good for us as an mlb. not really a fiery leader but he gets production, hopefully his eye surgery gets him back to what he used to be. we still need another mlb though. maybe we can get one with the one of the early pics. i think nolan is gonna go wideout in round two so maybe a good mlb in the 3rd. 1st is probably gonna go with whichever one ogf those defensive freaks falls to us. landry anderson and adams will probably be gone before we draft unless we move up but there is still great talent at the 11 spot. damn, i cant wait till draft and preseason, the stretch between draft and preseason is gonna suck, many of us will suffer withdrawal.

  18. zeeke, who is absolutely right?

  19. mario i am already having withdraws without football. sundays suck!

  20. you r danny

  21. Nolan don’t keep rolan on Lee he is a good punter and don’t let him go.

  22. OUR NUBER ONE PICK WILL BE A PUNTER

  23. thanks, I appreciate that! early in the day someone (i would have to look back) said that the lions might be interested.

  24. wow i just hope for your sake that you are kidding ryan

  25. interested in k harris?

  26. After watch the lowlight video of K Harris I don’t care what we get for him, just get something! I know…I know we drafted him in the first round, but do something and move on. I trying to think of a decent RT we could get? Can you think of any?

  27. 49ers needs are offensive and defensive line and wide reciever help in this years draft maybe a punter too.

  28. ya sundays suck big time without the niners. guess sundays a fishing day until the draft then the beginning of the new niner dynasty. the year of the duke !!!

  29. i think our best shot is to try for blaylock or maybe try to develope snyder he could be decent if healthy and with a little more exp.

  30. So, you think D. Smith is worth the nearly 5 mil due this season. I think Willis is Nolan’s guy he beams when he talks about him. As far as a player (WR) I didn’t have anyone specific in mind. But Nolan did say he was looking into trafing for one because he felt the free agency class was not that deep. They need to plug holes and add depth. With the low tenders we could lose some RFA’s like Hicks and Lee.

  31. Also, everyone is worried about signing gore to a long term deal. BE PATIENCE. What I think Nolan is going to do is draft people sign them and then look and the situation and start negotiating with “THE AGENT”

  32. i hate the agent

  33. Hopefully, something will be in place before or during training camp!

  34. Drew R(whatever the hell his name is) is a asshole!

  35. I say we sign Kelly Washingtn now to gice us a tall red zone threat

  36. I would like to think that we will resign lee. I think he has done pretty well.

  37. mr wankies mock draft #1 raiders-QB. Russell,#2 detroit- de.GAINES ADAMS,#3 browns-alan branch,#4 bucks-calvin johnson,#5cards-ot.joe thomas,#6redskins-de.jamaal anderson #7vikings-rb.adrian peterson #8texans fs.laron landry, #9dolphins-ot.levi brown ,#10falcons-dt.amobi okoye,#11 49ers-adam carriker…..my mock draft(not mel kipers or anyone else mock draft mr.wanky,mrwanky,mr.wankyyyyy.)

  38. i think we will do OKAY our defense will carry us alot this year.but i hope our new offensive coaching staff dont set us back any.

  39. Drew Rosenhaus is an asshole Jew.

  40. WHY?THE TRUTH

  41. if we draft jarrett or jr at the 11 spot i am going to be Extremely Disappointed! They are not the answer. I would rather pay joe horn for 1 year than to draft those guys.

  42. MY mock draft #1 raiders-QB. Russell,#2 detroit- Qb. Brady Quinn,#3 browns-Rb. Adrian Peterson,#4 bucks-WR Calvin Johnson,#5 cards-ot.joe thomas,#6redskins-de.Gaines Adams #7vikings- DE.Jamal Anderson.(or Trade Down) #8texans- fs.laron landry, #9dolphins- Nt.Alan Brach,#10falcons-ot.Levi Brown,#11 49ers- ILB Patrick Willis #12

  43. jarrett is jj stokes and jr is not that good. I am more impressed with Gonzalez (spelling)

  44. Rosenhaus is totally a Jewish name…and that fool will try any scheme possible on us to force us to trade him or give Gore a 100 Million dolaar contract… his clients normally will always hold out

  45. hahaha Hey Guys lets try to beat yeterdays record of 413 or wahtever comments….

  46. Samra, out of the 413 comments i made about 25 of those! No Joke!

  47. The draft will go like this #1 russell- oakland #2 thomas-detriot #3 peterson-clevland #4 johnson-tampa #5 adams-arizona #6 anderson-washington #7 ginn jr.-minnesota #8 brown-houston #9 branch-miami #10 landry-falcons #11 okoye-9ers
    Yeah we get a big dt and he’s young

  48. a guy by the name of 49er for life argued in favor or banta-cain to porter

  49. I AGREE WITH (THE TRUTH)…I AM THE CLIT MASTER!WHERE EVER YOU SEE CLIT YOU WILL SEE THIS FACE.

  50. that was the majority of arguements on that page

  51. I think we’ll get Willis in the first round, Ray McDonald in the 2nd, and try to nab Derek Landri Late on Day 2

  52. willis is money but if branch is available then we need to take him

  53. Newberry has officially become a raider

  54. I say in two years draft this cb outta michigan his name is johnny sears he’s 6-2 195 and he runs a 4.4 and he’s from cali too.

  55. dont get to ahead of yourself

  56. Niggas wanna eat when they aint ate nothin, niggas wanna leave when you say you outta mustard…. I hope frank gore aint like those niggas

  57. STEVE YOUNG: Please explain your use of the word “Niggas.” I’m dying to hear this…

  58. Completely random, but the Raider signed Newberry according to KFFL.com. They just love old Niners.

  59. Your a nigga I’m a nigga we are all niggas its like somebody saying dudes I just say niggas ya get it my nigga

  60. Your a nigga I’m a nigga we are all niggas its like somebody saying dudes I just say niggas ya get it my nigga ricky watters got me sayin it

  61. ANY information about the GORE CONTRACT….that is all that matters to me until draft day.

  62. DEREK SMITH SUCKS WHY DONT SOME1 PUT A VIDEO UP ON HOW MANY TIMES HE CANT TACKLE A RB AND HOW PROBALY K HARRIS IS FASTER THEN HIM. I LUV THE 49ERS BUT I HATE D SMITH IVE WATCHED HIM HE IS RUINING ARE DEFENSE HE MIGHT BE OK AS A 3RD MLB BUT NOT A STARTER. U GUYS NAME A BIG PLAY HE HAS DONE FOR US THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND ILL SHUT UP.

  63. Hey Corey Dillon wouldn;t be a bad back up to Gore if he was willing to be a backup…. The fool could hella be our Jerome Bettis

  64. As far as the draft goes, I like Willis, Carriker or even Landry. For our second pick if Sidney Rice is available then I’d grab him. We need some WR help.

    I do hope we don’t lose Andy Lee, he was a good punter for us last year…goodness knows he got plenty of practice.

    And my thoughts on the 2007 season would be simply to win 10 games or more and make the playoffs. If we don’t that’s cool, I’ll take the 10 games.

    But more importantly NO MORE BLOW OUT GAMES!! Chicago, KC and Philly were not fun times to say you’re a proud Niner fan.

    Been one since ’81 and always will be…GO NINERS GO!

  65. Yo you guys think we could still get engram he’s a could wr that is real reliable on 3rd down we need somebody like that he is a free agent still right?

  66. Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange explains that the eight-year, $80 million deal given by the 49ers to cornerback Nate Clements contains a phony final year, which automatically will be voided when a $10 million option bonus is paid to the player in 2008.

    So either the option bonus won’t be paid, and it’ll be just a one-year deal — or the option bonus will be paid, and the contract will be worth $64.02 million over seven years.

    This is far different from a puffed up back end; it’s a complete fabrication of the final year.

    They could have picked any number for that final year. Instead of eight years, $80 million, the contract could have been eight years, $100 million. Or eight years, $800 million. Or eight years, infinity.

    So why did they plop $15.98 million into the eighth year will disappear a year from now? It was, in our view, a favor to the agent, who’ll now be able to trumpet to recruits the fact that he negotiated an “eight-year, $80 million” contract.

    He didn’t. It’s seven years, $64.02 million. Still impressive, but not as catchy.

  67. that was from profootballtalk.com

  68. very interesting

  69. D. Smith does suck My Granpa can run faster than him. Every game he plays he’s a liability. Ulbrich is a decent back up. Mike Nolan will pick Patrick Willis in the first. Remember linebackers are what make the 3-4 work. Bata cann, Green, Harylson, can fight it out then Willis,Moore,Lawson

  70. I say if we get one of the top 5 wrs in the draft alex smith will be a top 10 qb in the league and this is comin froma hall of fame qb!!!!!!!!!! And the best of all-time!!!!!!!!

  71. a smith is primed for a great season with the addition of one more reciever and anyone but kwame

  72. WHY DONT WE USE BRANDON WILLIAMS MORE AS A WR HE DID GOOD IN COLLEGE. ESPECIALLY IF WE DONT PICK UP ANOTHER FREE AGENT WR GILLMORE REALLY CANT CATCH THE BALL HOW MANY DROPS AND HOW MANY WRONG ROUTS DID HE RUN LAST YEAR.

  73. THE TRUTH THE TRUTH THE TRUTH is I like to fuck my mom. Sometimes I let my friends fuck her, but only in the ass. My friend steve likes to fuck her in the ass. Then when he’s done I like to lick his dick off. I also like to play with myself in public…..Anyway, i don’t know why i got off on that subject, the truth is i hate the 49ers, and all of you fuckers from SF. GO RAMS!

  74. GO FUCK UR SELF TRUTH THE RAMS SUCK EVEN WHEN THE NINERS WERE BAD WE STILL BEAT U FUCKERS

  75. the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed restricted free agent P Andy Lee (49ers) to a seven-year, $7.1 million offer sheet. The deal includes $1.66 million to sign.

  76. how many condoms got to break before everyone gets along.you guys sound like sperm samples looking for a downer.medford orgon,the truth go find your selfs a room and make pastionate love and make a featuse(john clayton)and get married.

  77. I don’t know if we should let him go or not….I have mixed feelings. We could offer our picks to somone in the twenties…..we just need to figure out what the right price is….there has got to be somone who is willing to let us pull the manny lawson again. FIND IT!!!! This would enable us to either find a great receiver or a great defensive player. I just think we should shrink the amount of picks we have because we DO have a lot of valuable picks, but we should try to shrink that amount to either find an answer to KWAME’S PROBLEM, a threat receiver, or a d linmen.

  78. I was only protecting my team. Im not gay u so called clit master go watch brokeback mountain some more

  79. never seen it!!!!never will!!!! i love what i eat.and that is THE CLIT!sorry medford man i ment it for THE TRUTH.

  80. so derek smith has only led our team in tackling for three seasons or something close to that? we already have all four linebackers we need (d.smith, lawson, brandon moore, and banta cain) we’re going Dline. if you’re gonna hate on one of the best players the niners have you really shouldn’t be a fan.

  81. we are going to need a replacement soon at the middle linebacker position for d.smith and a replacement for bryant young and a replacement for larry allen and kwame me in the nuts harris and dont forget a few wide receiver and an extra corner maybe. and maybe a punter if lee leaves.

  82. i say we match the steelers offer and keep lee.

  83. i played the 49ers drinking game last night while watching the seattle games of last year with my freinds and the kwame harris lowlights.dude we got wasted because i was fast fowarding the tape to the penities.lmao….

  84. Pep Hamilton is gone???

  85. What up with Cato June?

  86. derek smith stinks hes to old and blind i think his mullet had more sacks then he did

  87. its ok clit master i like you cause ur a niner fan rams fans should go to ramsnews.com and leave us alone

  88. Here are the best WR’s in free agent NOW. 1.Donte’ Stallworth 2.Kevin Curtis 3.Joe Horn 4. D.J. Hackett 5.Eric Moulds 6.Travis Taylor 7.Brandon Stokley 8. Drew Carte 9.Bobby Wade 10.Justin Gage 11.Andre Davis 12.Kelly Washington and last 13.Charles “waist of 1st round” Rogers. Now I really expect1 or 2 of these guys to be on the Niners roster by draft time. My picks are Brandon Stokley and Joe Horn. What do you guys think?

  89. Keep in mind what Stokley did while in Indy and we all know Joe Horn is a playmaker and a mentor.

  90. i don’t like anyone beside donte and maybe washington

  91. We still need a strong pass rush from the defensive end position although we may be able to get around that with the 3-4 because we can bring LB’s to attack the QB. Also we need another lineman for depth cause K. Harris should be traded.

    Lelie ain’t gonna cut it as a number one so if we don’t sign anyone in FA then expect either the 1st of 2nd to be a wideout.

    In the draft you have to take the players in this order if they’re still there, Branch, Landry (Roman moves to the bench), Willis (D. Smith becomes trade bait), and Carriker. We have so many draft picks I think we could trade up and nab a player like C-J.

    We should trade some guys especially K. Harris, and D. Smith if we get another middle linebacker. Smith is makin a lot of dough this year that we could spend on better players.

  92. Re-hire Montana and Rice for the sure win. Those two vs. Ditka – still Ditka by 2, but only 2!

  93. holes 2 ill….. still need a DE an MLB, RT,WR

  94. We WILL address all of those issues in the draft….we have soooo many picks(I almost want to say TOO many picks)….Nolan knows how to draft the right players and I expect him to do the same game this draft as well. The thing that STILL remains undone is the GORE ISSUE!!! Big M…..Erickson…..I’m starting to worry about this because there was all of this talk about a deal getting done before the 07 season starts…..is that still on or are we tampering with fire????

  95. There is just NO EXCUSE for not paying the best back in the NFC….how could we not give him a new contract???

  96. With the signing of CoCain that seals the deal the niners will draft @ # 11 Partick Willis out of ole miss. We should sign Stallworth. He’s a proven player. In the draft you never know with wide receivers. If we do get him them we can draft the best DE on the board Tim crowder (texas) or Charles Johnson (Georgia)

  97. ACCORDING TO MAIOCCO OF THE PRESS DEMOCRAT, THE 49ERS ARE TALKING ABOUT TRADING KWAME HARRIS SOMETIME WHEN FREE AGENCY SETTLES DOWN AND NEAR THE DRAFT. THEY WILL TAKE A 4TH OR 5TH ROUND FOR HIM. GOOD NEWS AND I HOPE WE A 4TH ROUND ROUND FOR HIM. THAT’S EVEN!!

  98. As far as PR/KR we can draft Steve Breaston from Michigan. His receiving stats are not good which will cause him to drop to 4th/5th round but he does run a 4.4,4.3 40 and a great return man for us. He can be our “DEVIN HESTER”. 4 REAL We have at least 2 picks in the 4th round. NOLAN GO FOR IT!! MORE SPEED ON THE FIELD!!!!!!!!
