Morning folks, Ninjames here. The lack of links continues as the offseason continues. I really wish the 49ers would get some more rookies signed, that's the one thing we really have to look forward to right now. It appears the Rams have been pretty active on that front. I don't foresee many problems with getting these guys signed, the hardest one I imagine will be Taylor Mays - I'm sure his agent was talking him up on some very large dollar amounts, and then he fell far. I think he's the kind of guy who really wants to prove people wrong though, so while he will likely be the hardest to get signed, I don't see it being a really big problem. I really hope we don't have anymore Michael Crabtrees this year... these guys all need to be playing. Anyway, I'l get to your few links that I actually do have for you.

I figured I'd give you one of the worst articles I've ever read as far as not knowing what you're talking about goes. I'm sorry but I don't care if you don't believe in Franklin, which is understandable, or Sopoaga, who sucks - but to say Justin Smith is terribly overpaid is just insulting. The guy had as many hurries as DaMarcus Ware. Just awful defensive line rankings. (Yahoo.com)

Lynch has a post about the roster, where there will be battles and the like. He calls it being "unsettled" but I think it's a bit overblown, personally. (SFGate.com)
Brandon Jones is fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot. I really don't think he'll make it, nor do I think he has any trade value. (ProFootballTalk.com)
