Golden Nuggets: 49ers sticking to free agency plan

New, comments

Friday, March 14th, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning ladies and gents. This is my first Golden Nuggets since free agency began and I haven't had many opportunities to weigh-in on things. My overall feeling, though, is positive. Someone on Twitter pointed out the fact that Brandon Browner was visiting the New England Patriots, while Chris Cook was visiting our San Francisco 49ers. That user asked me to tell him it wasn't true.

Well it is true, and that's OK. The 49ers were never going to be big players at the cornerback position, not in free agency. They weren't expected to be big players at all, but they've thus far lost a big name, found a replacement who might even fit the system better and at a cheaper number, brought in an intriguing tackle/guard, a backup quarterback and re-signed the kicker. I'm pleased with how things have gone thus far, to tell the truth.

But onto the links, folks.
