Antonio Bryant Released By the niners
 
http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/default.asp?item=512265

I wonder where he'll go HMMMMMMM?

art vandelay 03-01-2007 07:15 PM

Very suprising to me at least...I bet alot of this is based on his character problems, not his talent.

draftguru151 03-01-2007 07:16 PM

So much for them having a legit WR.

The Unseen 03-01-2007 07:18 PM

Interesting.

locseti 03-01-2007 07:20 PM

Making room for Stallworth perhaps?

GB12 03-01-2007 07:20 PM

Why?

And all those 49er fans were saying "We will not take a WR at 11!"

Yea, Brian Gilmore, arnaz battle, brandon williams and Taylor Jacobs are definitely not going to cut it. Still, Nolan gave him a chance but Bryant screwed up. We better make a run for Stallworth because our set of wr's are definitely the worst in the league.

We won't. From everything i've read/heard(radio, newspaper), nolan/scott m don't like taking corners and receivers high. They'd rather get them through FA and 3rd-4th round. Our d-line is terrible, we need a guy like branch or carriker

ricky bobby 03-01-2007 07:24 PM

Robert Meachem going 11th maybe? They better find Alex Smith a legit target.

And they still wont, unless Laron Landry, Amobi Okoye, Adam Carriker, Jarvis Moss, and potentially Alan Branch are gone.

This move..hmmm. It saves the 49ers cap room, but they didnt really need the extra space. This stinks though. Stallworth maybe?

If you don't sign a good WR in FA, which there aren't many of them, are you really comfortable with the guys you have? Smith can't throw it only to VD.

dcarey20 03-01-2007 07:26 PM

Ginn could be a possbility at 11 if Branch and Landry are gone, which I expect them to be.

I really like Arnaz Battle and I feel he's pretty underrated. He could have a nice year with Bryant gone.

Dwayne Jarrett

No. god no. Not him or ginn.

I think, if they go WR, mecahem or bowe are the picks.

Of course not, but i'm confident that nolan will get the right guys. Bryant wasn't even going to be able to play in our first 2 games, so we'd have to get a guy anyway. It definitely has to be stallworth or a guy in the 2nd or 3rd round...like jason hill, maybe.

You will need more than that. With Bryant, your WR core was weak to be kind.

NIN1984 03-01-2007 07:34 PM

Kind of shocking, I think 49ers should go with Bowe now.

Matthew Jones 03-01-2007 07:36 PM

Dwayne Bowe makes sense as a guy Nolan got to see a lot of at the Senior Bowl.

niel89 03-01-2007 07:36 PM

they could bring in a vet like Joe Horn if he is not overpriced. they just need a reliable wr option for smith.

i have to agree with going defense in the first. get some young talent on d to compliment the young O. add a good vet wr and theyre looking pretty good

Chucky 03-01-2007 08:04 PM

dont forget that they still have vernon davis

You've got to have a legit WR, maybe they're hoping SD style will work. No top flight WR, but a topflight RB and TE.

JeffSamardzijaIRISH 03-01-2007 08:22 PM

Maybe a trade down now with someone who wants Landry, Moss, Branch, Okoye, Lynch, etc. if they're available. Maybe pick up an extra 2nd-3rd rounder, and pick up Meachem or Rice.

hell denver might be a possibility of trading up. they are really agressive and have an extra 3rd. they may want to get a elite D-lineman or get Lynch.

Yea, that's exactly what I was thinking.

stl9erfan 03-01-2007 08:32 PM

I think a lot of people here are missing the point. Yes, the WR corps is weak, but there are other strengths on offense that can somewhat compensate for that: a pretty good OL, Frank Gore, and Vernon Davis to name a few.

On defense, there's nothing. Outside of a pair of decent CBs, the D needs help pretty much everywhere. Manny Lawson was a good start last year, Bryant Young and Derek Smith should be okay for a few more years, and personally I really like the progress of young Ronnie Fields at NT/DE-- but that's it. Even with Bryant getting the axe, the D still needs much more help than the O.

I have no doubt Nolan will be signing somebody to take over Bryant's role-- my money's on Drew Bennett, but I could see Joe Horn as a stopgap or even Donte Stallworth.
