"Jim and Trent want to see if he can play," York said. "We need to add somebody who can stretch the field and it's up to those guys to see if he's a fit."Apparently, the 49ers determined Manning is not a fit."It's up to Jim and Trent," York said. "Whatever they want to do, I'm completely behind. And we'll make sure we do the right things for this team and continue to get better."The football people are here for a reason. If they're the ones who are going to be in charge of everything and be responsible, I have to make sure I listen to them, and I'll support them in whatever they need."RELATED: Jed York addresses Alex Smith's contract status
With free agency slated to start Tuesday, York said the team will likely take the same methodical approach as a year ago."I think it's going to be: Who fits us? What are we looking for? What do we need? I have full confidence in Jim and Trent to go out and get that done."We want to build through the draft and supplement through free agency. We had a good run last year and we need to get better."York said he knew of no imminent signings among the 49ers scheduled free agents.
