Patrick Willis could be traded/released

He would definitely be an upgrade

A lot of change has already happened in San Francisco and more could be coming. Sources say that star linebacker Patrick Willis could be shopped to other teams in a trade and also could end up being a cap casualty. Willis missed the final 10 games of the 2014 season with a toe injury. The 49ers feel they have a younger and much cheaper replacement ready to take his place with Chris Borland. With NaVorro Bowman coming back, Willis could be deemed too expensive for a team that is tight against the cap.

Re: Patrick Willis could be traded/released

Definitely worth it, he'd probably still be out of our price range though

I really hope we go LB early in the draft, denzel perryman is an absolute tackling machine.

Re: Patrick Willis could be traded/released

I'd faint.

Imagine Willis and Lofton in the middle. Oh my.

I doubt we'll spend that sort of cash though, especially since we need a CB, OG, OC, OLB.

We'll probably target that 2nd tier type like Keenan Lewis, Jabari Greer, Bunkley, Hawthorn etc...

He'd probably follow Fangio to Chicago.

I guarantee you-Loomis can do it if he wants....we'd have to make a few cuts and some restructuring of a few contracts, but it can definitely happen. He would most likely be the only FA acquisition though.

You ain't the only one. They can throw Tramaine Brock in on the deal too.
