T.O got his wish, he's in Philly. Too bad. At least the 49ers still get something for him.
The Raiders signed Warren Sapp. In terms of his personality, he's the perfect Raider. How will the Raiders be able to afford any other players however? They need plenty of help, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
ONE MONTH UNTIL THE NFL DRAFT!!!

Busy offseason for the 49ers. They've already lost their starting quarterback, running back, wide receiver, two offensive linemen, and a starting cornerback, most of whom were cut because of their cap figure. The 49ers offense will be a totally different unit next year, having lost close to half of its starters (possibly more than half in Tai Streets leaves via free agency).
Terrell Owens is the perfect example of a person who got what he deserved. He gripes and moans about the team during the season, and trashes the Niners even more after the season. Then his agent fails to file the neccesary paperwork to make Owens a free agent, meaning the 49ers maintain his right.
The team traded T.O. this week to Baltimore for a second round draft pick when they otherwise would have received nothing for him. Having missed out on lucritive free agent dollars, Owens is already complaining about being with the Ravens. He says the 49ers stabbed him in the back by trading him there instead of Philly. I say, "GOOD, SERVES HIM RIGHT!" Owens reminds me of Rod Tidwell, the wide receiver from the movie Jerry McGuire. It's always about him and what he hasn't got and how everything is somebody elses fault. I say again, SERVES HIM RIGHT!!!

49ers May Release Garcia On Election Day
Perhaps trying to soften the blow, the 49ers delayed a decision on Jeff Garcia until tomorrow. The word is that he will be released. His salary (over $9 million) and his recent DUI may have sealed his fate.
I would bet the 49ers have already made the decision to release Garcia, but are hoping the news gets lost on election day. It is another example of what a tight-wad, penny pinching organization the 49ers have become. I'm not saying that Garcia is the long-term answer for this team, but when healthy, he is still a pro bowl caliber quarterback.
Garcia may be set to follow Jerry Rice and join the Oakland Raiders. With his DUI, he'd fit right in.
