Just got the word that 49er safety Taylor Mays was offered to all of the 31 teams via mass email. What does this mean? Probably that the ‘9ers are not that into him – I just love movie puns.
If the ‘9ers care that little of Mays that they would shop him craigslist and ebay style, maybe SF does not care which team he goes to. And that is where the Rams enter the picture.
If Mays comes with a cheap price take – maybe a late round pick – he would be a vast improvement over incumbent safety Craig Dahl. Mays is physical enough to be one of Spags’ interchangeable safeties. Plus, he is way better than Dahl in coverage.
Maybe the Rams offer SF something, maybe they don’t. Maybe the St. Louis brass thinks high enough of that safety they drafted last April – Jermale Hines, I believe his name is. Whatever happens, this move would improve an already emerging defense.
