8.5: 49ers acquire veterans
Mindi Bach takes you to Santa Clara to meet Jonathan Goodwin, the 49ers' new center.
The 49ers patience and free agency appears to be paying off as they have signed five possible starters over just the last two days. The latest player wide receiver Braylon Edwards stepped on the field just moments ago and just hours after signing his one year deal with the 49ers. This is actually the first day any veteran free agent who signed with the team can actually take the field. And the new players for the 49ers perhaps the most experienced is senator Jonathan -- when He won a Super Bowl with the Saints just two short seasons ago when He says this team under first year head coach Jim Harbaugh reminds him of that Saints team that He joined in 2006. You know I've been in that situation before when I actually got to -- our -- some status and some of the situation and you know -- -- made me feel like I was really wanted and and I'd think -- hit it in the right direction and he's not some wanna be a part of help help and then turned his organization around. There working hard you know everybody seems unbeaten. Everybody's positive -- you know Rogers and Mike Weir right as -- you know hopefully we can get somewhere in. Distance is also my mean. -- I know I've even been able to practice with the team and neither is Alex and -- taking -- in this state working out but he's excited to come back I'm excited to come back. Whole team's excited to come it's time to roll. San -- win a championship like we talked about. Another strategic move that worked his late last night head coach Jim Harbaugh pushed today's practice backed into a 5 o'clock start. He wanted to make sure that if the final details of the CDA took longer than expected to get finalized He was still be able to fit in a practice and have all of his available veteran free agency and signed on the field.
