This came from the Sacramento Bee through Rotoworld. This article in general is interesting, but why not throw out something about potentially getting a stud like Dwight Freeney. Of course, gatling put it best when he said the Colts would tag Freeney before losing him to free agency.
"I would rather have a big, tough mean, ornery, smart son of a gun that gets eight sacks and stuffs the run than a guy that gets 14 and gets his bonus," he said.
Asked if that means the 49ers aren't interested in Indianapolis sack master Dwight Freeney, a possible free agent in March, Nolan said: "He's on the list. Put him in this environment and maybe he becomes the (team player). Maybe not, but he's a good player."
I could definitely see Freeney or Nate Clements causing the biggest stir as free agent options. Either would make a HUGE impact on this team and definitely alter first round draft strategy. It's gonna be a fun few months coming up.
