49ers Free Agents

With the uncertainty of football this season no one really knows just when free agents will be able to re-sign with other teams. However, even though the CBA hasn’t been agreed upon for next season and beyond, teams are still able to re-sign their own free agents if they so wish. Here are the free agents the 49ers might take a look at re-signing this offseason as well as their contributions to the team this past season. Keep in mind the performances of these players as they were all in a contract year with a lot to play for aside from just wins and losses. What do you guys think? Who should stay and who should go?

I have eaten, slept and breathed the 49ers since I knew what football was. Favorite all time players are Steve Young and Jerry Rice, even got to see Rice go into the HOF. I try to bring different perspectives to 49ersnews.com in hopes of sparking some debates in Niner Nation about whats best for the team. Hope everyone enjoys them and if not then comment and tell me why! GO NINERS!
