Sfgfan pointed it out in the last thread, but I figured it's worth mentioning on the front page: The 49ers announced that Jay Moore became the first 2007 draft pick to sign, reaching an agreement on a 4-year deal. Four years is the longest contract available to a non-first round pick. As sfgfan mentioned, clearly Moore wants to get going. As Moore said,
Clearly I've been a fan of his since posting the Corn Nation scouting report back in February. I definitely think he'll bring much-needed depth at the outside linebacker position as a backup to Tully Banta-Cain and Manny Lawson. At ESPN, Moore is presently listed 3rd on the ROLB depth chart behind Banta-Cain and Roderick Green. Moore has plenty too learn considering the position switch, but I'm excited to see his development, and expect to see plenty of him in the preseason.
[EDITOR'S NOTE] - 8:35AM - Thanks to Sprint Right Option for the heads up: Joe Cohen was also signed to a 4-year deal. With training camp starting July 28, it's good they're getting a jump on getting their picks signed.
