Very pleased with this signing. Very Happy



Maybe an electric return game is just what we need to get us over the hump.

we need to release one or two of armanti/adams/pilares.

having this many returners who can't catch is just unacceptable. it makes no sense.

Edwards is as good as gone.

Will probably see Pilares out the door since he was not a Rivera guy as well.

Adams was in the Doghouse for the longest time. I'm actually not sure he ever got out but Pilares > Adams from a strictly receiver standpoint so I think we'd keep Kealoha over Joe.

edwards is gone but i think adams and pilares are both staying with pilares lower on the totem pole. edwards had his shot and despite his best efforts is not cut out for the nfl. pilares is still young (think he's only played 2 years) and was our kr until he got hurt last year and provides some wr depth. adams was picked by rivera and this is only his 2nd year so i highly doubt he's going anywhere.
but overall im already impressed withgettlemen. one of the worst cap situations in franchise history and he manages to get captain, moore, ginn, florence and mitchell. now while these are all 1 year deals im still thoroughly impressed.

Very happy with this signing. We now have a solid return man in Ginn and our special teams woes are behind us. I could see him helping out with depth in the receiver department as well. Looking good Gettlemen.

I know we signed him for his return skills but hopefully he shows something at WR he was the 9 overall pick

It'd be awesome if Ted Ginn just somehow turned into a worth the #9 pick receiver for us but Haruki Nakamura becoming a good safety is probably more likely than that.

I mean he was in Miami and San Fran, other than Moss there was really no vet WR to help groom him. Smith can easily turn him around.

Plus Newton is probably the best QB he's had, I mean by the time Kaepernick came in he was already down the depth chart.

Special teams is so important, so I'm very pleased with this move.

If he can boost the special teams, this signing will be a win for us.
