My Free Agency Signing Grades (including both pre-league year and start of)----------------------Richard Sherman: A+
Contract: 3yr/39 Million
An All-Pro caliber cornerback, signed to a 75% incentive based contract? Umm, yeah. This could easily be the best NFL Free Agent signing of 2018. He's got plenty of juice left and I don't think that anyone can deny the steal that this is.
Weston Richburg: B
Contract: 5yr/47.5 Million
This could also be a really good move. Richburg is a top 10 center in this league and he also has the ability to produce solid play at guard. The only problem with this move is Weston's injury history. But, it could just be a phase. If he can stay on the field, we might've gotten a Pro-Bowl worthy center on our hands. Man we finally got an upgrade at center y'all!
Jerrick McKinnon: B-
Contract: 4yr/30 Million
Nothing against Jet. He's young, is a perfect scheme fit, and has a very high ceiling. My problem is the contract. We're paying a rb, who has been a #2 back for his entire career, the 4th highest positional salary in the league. I would gladly, and hopefully, go back on this and give it an A. But for right now, we have given a unproven back an expensive contract, and until he proves that he can hold down that #1 spot for us, this will remain a B-. Jerry Attaochu: A
Contract: 1 yr/5 Million
This guy is seriously talented and he's only been with one team. Y'all are forgetting that Jerry was a 2nd round pick for a reason. The potential is big here, and just because he's had a slow career start doesn't mean that he can't skyrocket. Just look at Demarcus Lawrence. He finally reached his potential in his 4th year. Jerry was on the incumbent Chargers for 4 years, and I can't wait to see what he does with an actually progressive franchise. Low risk, extremely high reward scenario.
Who's your favorite free agent signing?

I'm not gonna lie y'all, I've been massively disappointed with our engagement in free agency. Yes, we did get some really solid guys that can be pieces for the future, but we got 3 people. A punter, a center/guard, and a runningback, who hasn't ever had the responsibility of a RB1. I do like those signings, don't get me wrong. But did we really pass up Allen Robinson? Andrew Norwell and Dion Lewis? Yeah, those guys got super contracts, especially Norwell, but Allen Robinson and Dion Lewis had very basic contracts that we could've easily exceeded. Ugh it's just annoying that we're acting a like a team that has a small amount of cap space when we don't. And one guy that just recently hit the market that could be HUGE for us is Tyrann Mathieu. Yes, he's had a few injuries. But do y'all remember being terrified to play him? Remember the pick-6's and the fumbles. This dude can ruin an offense's day from at least 4 different positions on defense. It's pretty unlikely that we'll sign him, especially since we've been generally unengaged with FA, but if we do. If. We. Do. Our secondary could be golden for years. And yes, 4oers players have been recruiting him. Expect a new LOB in the NFC West. Do y'all like the 49ers' moves in free agency so far?
We have signed Center Weston Richburg to a 5 year deal worth 'currently unknown' amount. Love this move and it will probably solidify our line for a while, since he can also move to guard. Great signing!

Now that our biggest Free Agent need has been solved, with the signing of cornerback Richard Sherman, the 49ers will most likely be going for some offensive play makers. And what better two then these guys right here? Allen Robinson is an absolute no brainer. He's only 24, supplies us with every quality needed in a number 1 receiver, and fixes every shortcoming that our current Wide Reciever corps has. Dion Lewis is also a very good playmaker hitting the market. He's a perfect scheme fit player that provides us with an offensive Swiss Army Knife. He can do returns of all kinds, take handoffs, and catch out of the backfield. In my eyes, the 49ers will aggressively target both. What offensive playmaker do you want the 49ers to sign?

After much consideration and thought, I realized that signing Sherman could very well be one of our better moves, along with putting us in a nice, flexible spot for the future. First off, Sherman still very much is in his prime, even if he is in the latter years of it. I'd say that a cornerback like Sherman can provide us with solid corner play for at least 3-4 years. Yes, he is 29 and is about to turn 30 later this month, but still. Sherman has always been, to me, the best corner in the game. He runs his mouth like Norman and Talib, but has always been a great teammate other than the others listed. His ability truly is of the "lockdown" nature and I remember seeing our very own Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree get completely removed from games. But the best part about Sherman's signing would be the flexibility. We can easily sign or draft a young, promising corner and turn him into another Sherman in a couple years! Can you imagine what a young corner would do to learn behind Richard Sherman? So what do y'all think? Do y'all want to see Richard Sherman in Red and Gold?

WE SIGNED MARQUISE GOODWIN TO A 3 YEAR/20.3 MILLION DOLLAR EXTENSION! HUGE. We all love this guy and I think that I can speak for all of us when I say that the Faithful are extremely thankful to have you in Red and Gold for 4 more years (still had one more year on his current contract). Congrats Marquise! Eat up bruh

According to reports, Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers have been at a constant stalemate in their contract talks. However, the Franchise Tag still very much is an option. But, we still have a chance to make #levtosf happen y'all! Spam him and let him know where he's wanted! If Bell gets tagged, would y'all trade for him? #levtosf#levtosf#levtosf

The 49ers has reportedly been showing interest in Jarvis Landry. Once again, I love Jarvis, but I don't see him as much of a necessity as a luxury. Would y'all trade for Jarvis Landry?

I know that some people don't like Mr. Bell. But let me ask you something. See this duo? Deny it's possible domination. Deny the intimidation that it would give defenses. Exactly. And if you could deny that then you clearly don't know diddle squat. Le'Veon Bell is to me, and many others, the best running back in the league. You can say that his personality sucks or this and that. But I don't care. He just wants to be paid because it will make him feel respected and like he brought back some honor to the running back position. That is fine by me. And if you still want to call him a distraction, Then just comprehend the locker room that he is in. That room must be one of, if not the, most toxic and slimy rooms that I have ever seen. Did you see what they did to James Harrison? The franchise leading sacker asked for a release, on multiple occasions, because he wanted to play. What. Is. Wrong. With. That. Nothing. The dude wants to play and isn't being given the opportunity. He should at least attempt to have that opportunity somewhere else. His former teammates attacked him relentlessly and the fans followed. It was disgusting. I know that Le'Veon hitting the market is close to zero, but if he does, we have to push for him with all we got. Do y'all want to see Le'Veon Bell in red and gold? #LevtoSF

I've seen far too much of this debate and I'm going to do my best to end it. To me, this is a very easy decision, and that's Tremaine Edmunds. First off, he's versatile, and can actually help us in our LONG-TERM position(s) of need. Our OLB group was WEAK least year. Edmunds would be an immediate fix for that position and would provide a long term solution to that positional group. He also had to ability to play DE, or at least has the body type to play the position. That would be huge. Edmunds, for us, would be a front 7 Swiss army knife, similar to Minkah Fitzpatrick to the secondary. As for Roquan, he's easily more polished and accomplished than Edmunds. But, he plays Will and Mike. That's great, but not for us. He plays the two positions that already possess potential long term solutions in Rueben Foster and Macolm Smith. I genuinely feel like this whole Roquan Smith insurance policy draft pick doesn't make sense. Yes, Reuben is likely to miss a solid amount of the 2018 season. But, after that? What happens? Move Roquan to Will? No, Malcolm Smith is there. Roquan isn't a guy that would be ideal for our situation and I really think that the people who are calling for him are over reacting to Reuben's situation. Who do y'all want the 49ers to take with 9/10th pick?
