Will Reed follow Boldin to San Francisco?
49ers Insider Matt Maiocco says with the recent improvement at wide receiver, the team must focus on the safety position next and could target another Raven.
Nobody. Does this franchise like -- -- -- -- opposite trumpet. And they take yeah I you're you've made a good point that we're talking before what want went on here I guess the Brothers Harbaugh or talking and yet I -- it's a good move. It's it's a really good movie sex when you think of the capital that the 49ers had six in a sixth round draft pick they have fifteen draft picks so. He can really do this and even for a guy who's you know right now it's a one year deal six million dollars. He fills a need from a veteran leadership -- plan this is the guy Colin Kapanen can really latch on to learn a lot about the game. It's kind of similar to the role that Randy Moss had a year ago for the 49ers. Except for one thing the foreigners expectant fumbled -- to be a lot more productive on the field that Randy Moss. When you look at Anquan -- coming over and he's obviously a big need met. Before free agency starts what are the other needs that the 49ers have to look too. Well Gilbert. Wide receiver was one point right and now that I don't think they have to look there anymore when you think about some of the guys who are coming back -- Manningham is and then be ready for the start of training camp that they expected to be ready here's our number two receiver last year and Kyle Williams to be kind that they expect something from. AJ Jenkins but I think when you look at that the free agency now for the 49ers a lot of that revolves around safety position to Sean Colson. They foreigners did it franchise and leading everybody to to think that they're fine with him walking so you know do they look at a guy like. Ed Reed. Guy in that. There's a lot of moving parts are a lot of teams want Ed -- the forty hours also feel confident that this is a very deep draft for safety so you can plug in guy and he can be a starter. Also believe they need kicker in and that's not a big money position but after the releasing David Akers a week ago they're going to get it kicker I think in the start of of these free agent period -- I don't think you want to rely on a rookie kicker. Also the nose tackle is a spy you know they're gonna have to beat but beef up their defensive line. If you get Anquan Boldin and what's not officially up but they're going to get them. Does that mean disarm golds in golf I think cell and I think I -- said that even before this I just don't think that the 49ers in the shot goals and see I'd I know what it's worth this. A guy that's interesting to think about is Delanie Walker is such a valuable versatile piece of that offense. He -- kind of that moved and -- to kind of fills one of those Delanie Walker qualities which is. Young not a guy who really gets down the field they ant problem has a very nicely yards per catch average a much better than Delanie Walker. But it Delanie Walker brings that the blocking into it you know he's a good in the run game as well but but -- -- what they're getting with this -- a personal guy in the passing game. And they he can line up outside in the in the slot he can use his body to it to maneuver and he's not gonna run past guys but as we saw against the forty hours of the Super -- he has outstanding. Going up and catching the ball in traffic. Percy -- and signs with Seattle. Here's how people care couples way of going -- -- -- take that I mean because first of all there were rumors that the niners were looking to Percy took him. Yeah and I think it's. The the Seattle trade for -- -- actually happened earlier in the day. But I think what it says is that both of these teams now believe that their time is now. You know the 49ers. They believe they're going to be Super Bowl contender year in year out. Seattle definitely showed late in the season that they're going to be a force -- -- -- -- so what I think it shows. The Seattle going out get a wide receiver 49ers going -- getting wide receiver I think right now the two best teams in the entire NFC. Are those two teams in the NFC west have 49ers. And by the way free agency hasn't you can start it. Remember Darrelle Revis rumors flying around for awhile what's gonna happen with him. It's it's -- I don't know I I don't know what's gonna happen because of the Jets are sort of passively aggressively at it that. Putting him out there on the trade block but whichever team gets in is gonna have to then give him a huge contract and he's looking at a that's sixteen million dollar a year contract something similar to what Mario Williams died a year ago as -- -- defense a player in the league so. You know that's going to be a tough fit for the forty as a fact I think -- -- is even told people -- point 001%. Chance of foreigners. -- and deal with. With Darrelle Revis I think they could look. At another spot it would draw -- also coming off a knee injury but they could look at a guy like Sean Smith a cornerback from from the the Miami Dolphins a guy -- six foot three. And when you look at where the 49ers. Failed defensively last season it was defending guys like Anquan Boldin. Julio Jones the big wide receivers a lot of times those receivers weren't just run and pass the 49ers wide open. They were making plays in traffic just eating 49ers quarterbacks at the ball so if they were to get up a quarterback. Probably a cheaper alternative than Darrelle Revis would be -- Smith from the Dolphins -- -- a good job nobody knows this team. Like Matt --
