Golden Nuggets: Craig Dahl coming; Settle down everybody

They should just swap uniforms. - David Welker

Sunday, March 17, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Happy St Patricks Day, everyone. If you're not wearing green and drunk you'll get what's coming to you...a traditional Irish pinching. Take that sobriety! As a gift to us all, the front office has signed former Rams safety Craig Dahl. The Twitterverse went haywire with negativity. I had to talk a few people from hunting down Trent Baalke and attacking him. Then the news leaked out that he's playing for $1.2 million this season, everyone realized he's going to be a role player, and Harbaalke hasn't caught a sudden case of stupidity. Life returned to normal. He adds depth to the secondary and will likely be put to use on special teams. Simple.

I've got to be quick. I'm moving house this weekend and need to get back to it. Rapid Nuggets, ready to eat...

Craig Dahl Signing

BASG wrote this post about why we shouldn't panic. He was not signed to be Dashon Goldson's replacement. This isn't the 49ers future at safety. He's a role player, brought in to compete and add depth. | 49ers sign Craig Dahl, but probably not as the Hawk's replacement (BASG)
