While perusing some of the other SB Nation sites, I came across a tidbit about the Cowboys being interested in Leonard Davis. Earlier this month, there was a brief mention in a diary about Leonard Davis as an option for the offensive line. Since then, I've noticed several notes about Davis, free agency and possibly the 49ers.
February 12 - Rotoworld: "San Francisco and Dallas are considered the early favorites to sign free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis."
February 17 - Rotoworld: "The Arizona Republic reports that the Cardinals will not attempt to re-sign OL Leonard Davis after choosing not to tag him as their franchise player."
February 25 - KFFL: "KFFL has learned the San Francisco 49ers are showing serious interest in Arizona Cardinals OT Leonard Davis. KFFL has learned the Dallas Cowboys are showing serious interest in Arizona Cardinals OT Leonard Davis."
The 49ers have obvious needs on both sides of the ball and free agency is an excellent way to address these issues. The offensive line was a strength for the team last year, but could always be improved. The current starting offensive line consists of Jonas Jennings, Larry Allen, Eric Heitmann, Justin Smiley and Kwame Harris (with Adam Snyder threatening Kwame's starting spot). If the team were to sign Leonard Davis, would they dump Kwame, move Smiley to tackle and make Snyder solely a backup? Or maybe they sign Davis and work out a trade with their extra depth on the line? No matter what, it's going to make for an interesting March, that's for sure.
