Tony Pashos is a 49er

There were a few stories I found regarding Pashos signing a one-year contract with the 49ers, and PFT is reporting it also.  The Offensive Lineman refused to take a pay cut in Jacksonville and has reportedly signed a one year deal worth less than the pay cut Jacksonville was asking him to make.  Obviously this signing is big news for the 49ers, who seemed shot in the foot after Marvel Smith's retiring.

A Quick Look at Pashos

2007 - 2008:  Started all 31 games that he played in with the Jaguars at RT.  In 2007, the team averaged 4.6 yards per carry, and allowed 31 sacks.  In 2008, Jacksonville averaged 4.2 ypc and allowed 42 sacks. According to this "article", Pashos allowed 5.5 sacks in 2008.  For additional info,check out this bio at the Jaguars website

2003 - 2006:  Drafted in the 5th round by the Baltimore Ravens in 2003 and didn't play in the 2003 season (played 6 games in 2004).  Started 7 games in 2005, becoming the starter at the midway point (participated in all 16 games).  Played in and started all 16 games for Balimtore in 2006, when the team allowed just 17 total sacks on the season.  On the first day of free agency in 2007, Pashos signed with the Jaguars. 

What's it mean for the 49ers?

Obviously Adam Snyder is the starter, but for how much longer?  Tony Pashos has the experience as an effective starting RT in this league, and should push Snyder all season long for playing time.  Chances are, once Pashos is acclimated to the system, the RT job is his.  The 49ers will also have to release a player to make room for Pashos when the deal is official, any guesses on who that will be?
