On The Subject Of Briggs, Wide Receivers, Etc...

Contrary to my comments last night lamenting that the Niners should still be seeking out able hands to fill out the receiving corps, a team insider had this opinion.

From Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat,

"...don't expect the 49ers to sign another wide receiver in free agency. When the signing period began, the 49ers did not see many players capable of being No. 1 receivers. But there were a whole bunch of receivers who were going to get paid like No. 1 receivers. According to reports: Bernard Berrian got a six-year, $42 million contract with $16 million guaranteed from the Vikings; Jerry Porter got six years, $30 mil with $10 mil guaranteed from the Jaguars; Donte' Stallworth got seven years, $35 mil with $10 mil guaranteed from the Browns.

The 49ers apparently don't have any interest in oft-injured Javon Walker, whom the Broncos released, or D.J. Hackett, despite rumors to the contrary.

It doesn't seem to make much sense to bring in another No. 2 or No. 3-type receiver. The 49ers already have Isaac Bruce, Arnaz Battle and Darrell Jackson. WR coach Jerry Sullivan talked late in the season as if he thought Ashley Lelie was ready to excel. Then, there's also youngster Jason Hill. You can also expect the 49ers to spend a first-day draft pick on a wideout."

On the subject of often rumored LB Lance Briggs, he has reportedly resigned with the Bears. Terms have not yet been announced.
