What people aren't talking about that I think should be mentioned more is that Day and our new prize defender Deforest Buckner played (and even started some) side-by-side last year with SF. These two

Im sure the front office is worried about you're overreacting opinion

Buckner's missed 1 game in his career.  He just turned 26 last week.  He's coming off a two consecutive years where he played very well (a probowl one year, 2nd team all-pro the other).  The 3T IDL sp

49ers' Sheldon Day: Finishes year as starter

 

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

 

Day had 15 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in 16 games this season.

Day began the year as a backup,

but he took over as a starting defensive tackle next to DeForest Buckner after D.J. Jones (ankle) was shut down following Week 11.

 

The near-300 pound tackle shined against the run, but he was also able to generate some pass-rush pressure despite his larger size.

 

Day will be an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason, but he should land somewhere (if San Francisco doesn't re-sign him) following a solid showing in 2019.

This better be for $2-$3 million. I'm going to be upset if we got rid of Desir for him and we aren't getting Clowney.

I doubt it's more than 3M. He's situational. Only played about 1/3 of snaps last year in most games. Good guy to compete and rotate with Stewart. Good kid too.

I wonder if this means we have moved on from Clowney and will now turn our attention to other needs.  

Day is a 1T. Doubt this would have anything to do with Clowney. We needed a reasonable 1T guy for depth/rotation, so this shouldn't surprise anyone.

Highly doubt we get him. I hope I’m wrong, but don’t see clowney coming here. Also my opinion is Ballard made a terrible decision in getting rid of desir.

Yep, this is the second Grover Stewart/Al woods type we were often lacking last season....

Good character player who is a perfect situational guy for this line.  I don't know the figures but, I'd have to say Ballard got him on the cheap with the limited PT he received last year on the 49ers

Nice depth piece to rotate in with Stewart. Low risk, but good add. 

Thanks all. You folks get it.

I honestly think we could've gotten by without adding, but had injury hit Stewart, we would have been screwed. It's a double bonus for me picking up a kid from ND. Hometown too so a triple bonus.

This is a pure depth and rotation move he couldn't have signed for more than 1.5-2.5 mill. We still have room to go after Clowney or Logan Ryan

Clowney wants way more than he is worth.   The fact here hasn't signed yet is proof of that

I was thinking more along the lines that he could be the first of a number of depth players that could be added instead of Clowney.  CB, WR, OL,  maybe bring Sheard back.  Hope he still gets Clowney though.

Clowney will have to come down. He isn’t getting the 20 mil he wants. Guarantee when he does sign with whomever, it’ll be a 16-18 mil deal.

These two already know each other's games, and that should really help them both with consistency and comfort on defense! Great add!!

Agree, and nice new avatar!

According to an article on Stampede Blue he turned down an off of 17M from the Dolphins.  I would guess that if that offer came from a contending team he would take it along with some incentives of course.  I wonder if he would take that offer from the Colts.

I think you’re right. Miami has added some pieces and probably getting Tua will help. But don’t think they are anywhere near being a contender at this point in time. We’ll see how the AFC East looks with Brady being gone.

I believe a month or two ago, Clowney said he wanted to play for a contender. So that actually might be why he rejected the Dolphins offer, rather than the money.

Yup, but I just don't think this will impact any major decisions. Should be a low dollar transaction. I'm sure we'll see more deals like this. Not sure how realistic JC is to be honest. Given next year's paydays for guys coming off rookie contracts, re-ups on FAs, new FAs, etc., I just don't see JC unless they are going all in this year in a win-now mode. Sure would be interesting if it happened.

    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!   
    • I'd like to hear the board's thoughts on this topic from more of an outside perspective. From my experience Steelers fans fall into two camps (generally speaking); totally irrational and loyal to the death, highly critical of anything to do with Pittsburgh Football unless it results in a championship (and not always in a rational manner).     Now for my thinking, this issue should have been addressed much sooner, but if nothing else after the disaster that was the 2019 season. You have an aging QB who just blew his elbow out and were starting "junior varsity" replacements. You have been bleeding free agents all off season in 2020 and have lost or watched the decline of key players at LT, C, LB, RB, S, CB and just resigned a WR free agent. Plus, you also need a LG. These stooges are actually suggesting using a 2nd round pick on a QB from college when the decision to do nothing about the QB position has caused half the team to get sent packing because you have next to nothing to spend in free agency.   This is after these same people lauded the Dwayne Haskins singing as a "steal". Pittsburgh literally got him for nothing this year after WFT ate all the "bad" in his contract, a 15th overall pick coming into his 3rd year in the NFL who drastically needed a change of scenery.   I'm convinced that if it was up to Tomlin he would have already moved on. We all know he's a master at coach speak at the podium but he's a completely different guy otherwise. Even at that, he's started to unravel a bit because you can tell he's getting frustrated with some of his more recent public comments. He is no BSer. I get the warm fuzzy feeling we all have when a team is loyal to a player who has been valuable and produced at a high level, but I mean even New England and Indianapolis let Manning and Brady walk after all of their success.   Please tell me in what universe does any of this even make sense? I am confused.
    • Gonna be on vacation next week. Sorry
    • As I have probably nothing else to do at weekend, due to "sleepy" covid management over here, I'm in!    To be honest, I would've been in anyway.
