The Ricky Jean Francois dream began and died pretty quickly for San Francisco 49ers fans, didn't it? I was kind of surprised people were so quick to suggest the 49ers would get the guy once he was released by the Indianapolis Colts. It's not as though he was released due to lacking play, and it was pretty obvious another team was going to offer more than the 49ers, and quickly. It's not at all shocking that Washington was that team.
But it was a nice thought while it lasted, though I personally would rather the 49ers get motivated to correct the issues on the defensive line in a more permanent fashion. Hopefully, Justin Smith returns to the 49ers and the team can focus on a wide receiver in the 2015 NFL Draft, but if not, I wouldn't hate the acquisition of a top-flight defensive lineman in the first round.
Anyway, we're going to get right into your links for the day. If you find any I've missed (impossible!) post 'em up in the comments for your fellow reader. Enjoy.
