Rule of thumb. If you have a video of yourself doing something cool on YouTube! you deserve a shot.

YouTube - Blades hit in louisville game

However yeah, I'd like to give Blades a shot. I really hope the front office stays away from what I like to call Madden tactics. Besides we're already strapped for cap room this year. Right now I'm hoping for

- Hacket at WR
- Smiley at Guard
- Florance at CB
- DE, DT, and OL in the draft.

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

WE need to pick up Rod Coleman but the Bucs have shown interest in him and he was cut from the Falcons but just because of his cap number...

The bucs are singing up everyone and its crap, we need to grab someone like Coleman cus hes the HIGH motor DT we need. one gapper.

Looks like Samuel might be going to the Eagles.

Briggs will be 28 during the 2008 season, and that was my point, that we wouldn't have very much youth at LB. If we signed Briggs, we'd probably be running Marcus (who is only 30) out of town. Anyway, the Briggs signing doesn't look plausible right now.

I don't know about Blades. He might develop, but I think it's best to count on him/Rocky as one player...If Blades does develop, then we can let Rocky walk after his RFA year (2009).

Sounds like Briggs to the 49ers is pretty much a done deal.

Why would we do that? Blades' natural position is MLB & if he develops he'd take Fletcher's spot in a year or two. Rocky is a weak side olb.

I can only see letting him walk if he's still injured or asking way too much.

I have to assume that GTripp was referring to Rocky's higher risk of injury.

The 'can' should be emphasized in my prior post.

ACL injuries tend to hamper performance, and if Rocky can't develop over the next two years because of it, it would be hard to justify giving him an extension.

Either way, Blades gives the team options, but I doubt he will ever start at MLB. Probably too much responsibility for him, even if it was his college position, but I guess that's what we said about Pierce too.

Everything I'm hearing has Samuel going to Philly- 5 years $50 million. He and Lito make a pretty formidable tandem.

Yeah, PFT is reporting the deal to be worth $47.2M over 5 years, averaging around $9.5M a year.

Interesting, I thought it was something like 6 years, $60-65 million (maybe that includes the bonus?)

Not sure, but PFT says 5 years, $47.2M, and they reference The Sporting News...

Re: UFAs Briggs and Samuel

Yeah I think Clayton is saying something similar now. I think I misunderstood him when he was talking earlier today.
