Lloyd Lunges for a PassThose wondering why the 49ers would trade their top wide receiver, Brandon Lloyd, to the Redskins - for a third and fourth round draft pick in 2007 - need to remember two facts:

  1. His three-year tenure with the club was filled with more preening and fighting with veterans than with impressive catches and clutch plays.
  2. The team has no one to throw the ball to receivers. They should trade their entire wideout corps for defensive help.

San Francisco may actually be following that last piece of advice. Having already released Johnnie Morton, the immortal Arnaz Battle is the Niners’ top WR. He wouldn’t be among the top 50 at his position in a fantasy draft.

The team is expected to pursue free agents, such as Antwaan Randle-El. It may have difficulty convincing players to sign, however, with Alex Smith, at quarterback. The 49ers also hold the sixth pick in April’s NFL Draft, but are expected to look at defensive stars, such as AJ Hawk, with the selection.

But when the Eagles wouldn’t bump up his seven-year, $48 million deal prior to last season, his ego broke loose. But will he do the same to Bill Parcells? […]
