49ers needs: T.J. Houshmandzadeh?!/New WR's?

FOOCH'S NOTE 11:05AM: I wanted to move this to the front page for a couple of reasons.  First, it is certainly something worth speculating about.  TJ Houshmanzadeh is in the prime of his career and even with our young talent would be an impressive upgrade.  Second, I was actually the person who asked this question of Maiocco.  Third and most important is the fact that Pro Football Talk actually turned this into a rumor!  So I can honestly I helped start a PFT rumor.  They based their entire 49ers interest in Houshmandzadeh rumor on Maiocco's response to my question.  GIven how vague it is, that certainly says something.

As Per Maiocco's Q and A:

Question: Any chance the 49ers make a run at TJ Houshmandzadeh? He's 31, but he seems to be right in his prime. Or do the 49ers like their future with Hill, Morgan and Zeigler?

My response: Sure, there's a chance the 49ers go after him. I've heard rumblings the 49ers are going to concentrate on tackle, receiver and safety in free agency. Houshmandzadeh would be a very attractive addition to the team.

Very speculative, no real sources, so its not "news". However this got the wheels turning, and from this I pose two questions:

1) Should the Niners be chasing after TJ, a pontentially aging WR (31 years young) but one with a definite upside?

2) If we are looking to build our WR core via free agency, who will we be focusing on adding to the organization?
