Default 49ers COULD have traded for Mike Wallace

San Francisco 49ers' Top Pick A.J. Jenkins Could Miss Season Opener


In 2011, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith didn't have enough targets at wide receiver to be effective. According to head coach Jim Harbaugh, he now has five No. 1 receivers.

What a difference a year makes.

Even more newsworthy is who the odd man out will likely be. It's been reported that the 49ers' 2012 No. 1 draft pick A.J. Jenkins may not make the 46-man roster when the team travels to take on the Green Bay Packers. When there were questions about the former Illini receiver's work ethic and conditioning prior to training camp, even the most skeptical onlookers couldn't have envisioned this scenario.

But when considering the company Jenkins is in -- a future Hall-of-Famer in Randy Moss, a Super Bowl champion in Mario Manningham and a corps of players who know their jobs are on the line in Michael Crabtree, Kyle Williams, and Tedd Ginn Jr., it makes sense that a rookie with less than rave reviews may have to sit for awhile.

It could be the wake-up call he needs.

The talent is clearly there, and the 49ers didn't draft Jenkins on a whim. He can definitely play. The problem is that there has been too much talk and not enough to show for it on the field.

Whether he's a first-round pick or not, Jenkins will have to work to succeed in the NFL. If he doesn't have what it takes, then the 49ers will have no problem moving on. It appears that they may already have.
jimmy crack cornbaugh even went as far to say that the team already has five #1 receivers and none of them were named AJ.

i guess he considers wallace expensive compared to the bargain basement prices he's got the phenom crabtree locked up for.-


Crabtree gets a six-year contract that can turn into a five-year deal if he lives up to his potential as the 10th pick in the 2009 draft, a source told ESPN.com's John Clayton.

According to the source, Crabtree has a couple of scenarios that could void the sixth year of his contract. If he goes to a Pro Bowl during his first four years, along with playing 80 percent of the offensive snaps during a separate season in which the 49ers reach the playoffs, the source said the contract voids to five years. Another provision would be going to a Pro Bowl in the first four years along with going to a second Pro Bowl in five years.

According to the source, the Crabtree contract is for six years and $32 million that could maximize to $40 million if he achieves every incentive in the deal. The guarantee in the contract is $17 million, but he is expected to make $19 million over the first three years and $23 million over the first four years. The five-year deal is worth $28 million, according to the source.
who could blame wallace if he did tell that scrub team he wanted $120 mil after seeing the coin michael crabbust and ted bust jr. have raked in.

just wait til randy moss starts hot dogging it, pouting, and finally implodes by week 8.

alot of people said mike wallace wasnt worth it.

as the 49ers prove, alot of people dont know jack shit about building a successful team.

If it were the 1990's then the 49ers would be a contender. Today though, with the way the game has opened up offensively, there's hardly any room for mistakes if you don't have a QB that can sling it.
