They better hope Ballard stays healthy this year.

 

They better hope TRich gets his head out of his ass. Or more accurately, gets his head out of the asses of his guards and center.

That's it! Jim Harbaugh is leaving for Cleveland.

 

More seriously: why?

 

 

 

If your starting QB gets hurt for 4-6 games you need a backup that can go .500 and keep playoff hopes alive until they return, ala McCown last year in Chicago. Gabbert with that defense and running game can be that guy. It's not like a 6th round pick has a high chance to make SF's roster, so it's very little risk.

:weird: We're talking about Blaine Gabbert, right? I've seen that guy single-handedly GIVE games away . . .

Verner to the Buccanneers and Byrd to the Saints!

 

:thinking: I thought the Saints were out of money and cutting everybody? :shrug:

As long as he just gives 1/2 of them away they can still play .500 ball ;)

Steelers sign Mike Mitchell.

 

Not flashy but a very good signing IMO.

.....on a team with basically zero in the way of weapons or support, in a position he was rushed into well before he was ready, plus the injuries, etc etc. IMO Gabbert never really had a prayer, it would've took freaking Manning or some such to do well on that shambles of a team. I'm glad for him and think Harbaugh can coach him up to be a very good backup. Edited by BeeR

Gabbert's awful. Never even seen flashes from that guy. 49ers just flushed a sixth rounder down the toilet. :sick:

I don't know if you're a fan of horse racing or the term "jumps shadows", but Gabbert jumps shadows

Whatever - we'll see. It's not like the odds of getting a quality starter with a 6th rounder were exactly high. I'm not saying he's exactly faultless or there isn't a lot of work to do there, but he was well worth the "risk."

Watching the NFL Network. Ian Rapaport is reporting that the Colts and Eric Decker have a 'mutual' interest.

Man I would love Decker on there but I fear they will way overpay for a FA again.

 

 

PS Jags sign RB Gerhart. Nice #2 guy, but hardly who you want as lead RB.

I think Decker is perfect for Indy. Hilton across the field takes the top off the defense and Wayne + Allen provide mid-level threats. Decker shouldn't see a double team until around 2016.

How do you sign a 31 year old cornerback to a 6 year $57 million deal with $27 million guaranteed?

Rashad Jennings signs with the Giants.

 

And Darren McFadden re-signs with the Raiders. One year, $4 mil.

 

 

As someone who has Latavius Murray, both these signings made me happy. Jenning would have kept Murray on the bench longer. So, with him gone and McFadden on a one year contract, the door is wide open for Murray in Raiderville.

@RapSheet: Donald Brown is signing with the #Chargers, per source.

 

Colts are signing all the Baltimore players. Chargers are signing all the Colts players. I heard Kavell Conner may be going to SD as well?
