1. The delay in getting Alex signed has nothing to do with IF or HOW MUCH ... rather, I think that it's all about waiting to structure the specifics to accomodate other free agent signings. Alex knows that he is going to get paid, but he is also a team guy and wants to help strengthen the offense.
2. Give up Pick #30 AND award a huge contract for Mike Wallace? I know that a lot of folks are clamoring to do just that, but ... I just don't see any way that the Niners will do that. It's not their MO and they won't spend money that way.
3. If they won't go after Wallace will they try to sign any other free agent wide receivers? The two most likely additions that I see would be Chaz Schilens (Oakland) or Legedu Naanee (Carolina). Brandon Lloyd? Don't see it ... too much of an ADDITIONAL (to Randy and Cox) me-first headcase. Ted Ginn? Maybe ... depending completely on price.
4. Other than WR, I think that the most likely free agent additions could be an OG and perhaps a RB. Who might they be? OG candidates might include Ben Grubbs (Baltimore), Evan Mathis (Philadelphia) or Chad Rinehart (Buffalo). RB candidates might include BenJarvis Green-Ellis (New England), Michael Bush (Oakland) and MAYBE Brandon Jacobs as a goal line hammer.
What are your thoughts?
