Secondary Questions

BASG has the 49ers as still in the hunt for a free agent safety to add to the mix.

And for those of you wishing the 49ers sign Nnamdi, don't give up, there's still hope. | Niners, Nnamdi won't talk contract until he finishes his free agent visits (Inman)

Niners remain serious contenders for Asomugha (PFT)
