Griffen deal is 1 year 3 mil I believe.

Less than Sendejo. Competition?

Well...I guess I like the Griffen signing better than I liked the Taylor Mays one. Not that that is saying much.

FWIW, PFF gave Griffin a 67 (out of 100) for 2015. Sendejo got a 52.

As a Niner fan, congrats on getting Boone.

Lamur Watch

Just talked to Emmanuel Lamur. He's in Atlanta right now, changing planes to fly to Minnesota to sign his contract.

Emmanuel Lamur on being reunited with Mike Zimmer. "I've very thankful. I'm blessed. I'm very excited.''

When all is said and done I prefer Griffen to Sendejo. Maybe he will thrive playing with more talent than he's used to. Fingers crossed. Still drafting a safety in the first 3 or 4 rounds though

Signing Griffin is a bit of a head scratcher. Boone was a great pickup for a great price.

Early indication is that we'll go WR early in the draft. I thought we'd go safety early too. Sendejo & Griffin signings kind of threw me off.

Nelson would have been so much better.

It was said Nelson wouldn't accept Cinci's 2yr deal, if true why in the world would he accept a 1yr deal?

I do agree that Nelson or Weddle might have been better but Griffin is a former star and if he's who Zimmer targeted/signed than I have complete faith.

I dont like the Griffin signing at all, but look at it this way, he's better than Robert Blanton. So technically we upgraded, by a hair.

And its just a one year deal for a 31 year old player, so clearly they see him as a potential stop gap player. They can still take a guy like Mills, Cash, or Joseph and just redshirt them like they did with Waynes. And then next year when Griffin is gone and Sendejo's contract is voidable(if need be), we have a young talented S that can step in next to Harrison.

Versus signing a guy like Nelson to a 4-5 mil per year deal and then still having to sign Smith to a high price deal. If Harry get say 9 mil per year, then we would be looking at 9 mil(Harry) plus 3-4 mil(Sendejo), plus 4-5 mil. Then we would be looking at roughly 18 million going just to safeties, which would be too much invested there IMO. And on top of all that there is always a risk in signing a 33 year old player like Nelson to big money because his play could drop, and we might be on the hook for some money. Plus we still wouldnt have a young, long term solution at the position. But with all that said, i still would have been really happy with Nelson.

Where did i say that Nelson would come on a 1 year deal? Confused
