Default Santonio to 49ers for Picks Scenario

According to Mark Madden, the Steelers and 49ers have been talking about possible trade scenarios involving Santonio Holmes. Here is the scenario...the Steelers would get the 13th pick from the 49ers. The Niners would get pick 18. Then the Steelers would send Santonio to San Fran for their second round pick. By moving up to the 13th pick, the Steelers would select Joe Haden, who the Steeles are supposedly very high on. Then with the Niners 2nd round pick we take Golden Tate to replace Holmes. I have also heard this same scenario involving the Dolphins.

I personally would love to see this happen but it probably wont We would get a shut down corner in Haden, a young Hines Ward in Tate, and then we could also select an offensive lineman with our original 2nd round pick.

Anxious to hear opinions on this.

Default Re: Santonio to 49ers for Picks Scenario

First off.. who is Mark Madden? I wouldnt mind the trade with the 49ers with Holmes going there with our 18 and us get the Niners 2nd rounder.. not at all. With the Steelers resigning Larry Foote for ILB depth, I really think that puts the LB from Alabama off the Steelers list of needs, but who knows. I also thought at one time maybe the Steelers would be targeting a S like Berry or Earl Thomas, but with the resigning of Clark and the other guy from Tampa I dont think that is a major need either.
As of right now I think our major Needs are DB and Interior Offensive Linemen and DE/NT.

The 49ers are in greater need of secondary help than the steelers so why would they pass up on Joe Haden?

They must believe that # 17 - OT ( Davis) and #18 CB ( Thomas / WIlson / McCourty) in the first plus Holmes as WR is a better fit than #13 - Spiller #17 - Davis and a 2nd round CB.

i like the thought process, but seriously doubt we get golden tate with SF 2nd round pick. this trade would be a hell of alot more easy to make (and save a ton of $$$) if sweed had already shown some of his promise.

I've heard the same scenario with the dolphins and also that we are going to try and go get marshall cause hes a pittsburgh native.

Its all rumors and until i actually see something telling me it is going to happen or it does happen, there are just going to be to many rumors to keep track of.

Sir, not to doubt your report but, I can't find anything from Mark Madden reporting this. Not to mention Madden is clueless as well. Read a story on his opinion of the steelers WORST Draft pick ever back in 2003. I gotta laugh out of it.

Trade him now while we still can. He's turned into a distraction and he doesn't think we'll give him what HE thinks he's worth and i doubt we will. Trade him now and get a young WR in the draft that can learn from Ward for a season or two. Here's where he said he doesn't think we'll pay him what he's worth:

I personally like the 49ers trade, move up in the first for a solid DB and use the second on a OL or WR, maybe wait till the 3rd and grab a guy like Shipley. He may be a little slower but the guy doesn't drop anything.

He was talking about it today on his radio show. Sorry for the confusion.

Mark Madden is a complete moron, but if the 49ers scenario happened, i would be generally happy. I would want Haden or maybe even Berry if he slides, and Golden Tate would be perfect. Tate can do it all for us once Hines Ward retires. The guy can return kicks/punts, take reverses, heck even carries at RB (which he used to play), and play all the wide receiver positions. He's a Steve Smith type guy and could be utilized as a slot receiver for possession or split him outside as a deep threat.
