Maybe. He did just get cut by the Eagles. He does know our system, but has been cut from two teams for a reason. We are gonna need some help though, or things will get even uglier.

How about Arnoux & Coleman? Should be adequate at SS until we get P.P. & Harper back...

Niners grant veteran safety Lewis his release

The San Francisco 49ers have parted with Michael Lewis, two days after the veteran safety reportedly requested his release.

Lewis did not travel with the team to Atlanta this weekend, having left the team Friday for what coach Mike Singletary deemed personal reasons.

The team announced Lewis' release Monday in a press release.

"I want to thank Michael for his hard work and leadership as a 49er," Singletary said. "We wish him and his family all the best."

Lewis and the 49ers' divorce began when the safety lost trust in the 49ers organization, according to a report Saturday in The Sacramento Bee. That mistrust may stem from an NFL Network report last Wednesday that Lewis and veteran LB Takeo Spikes were on the verge of being benched. Singletary denied the report, saying there would be no lineup changes vs. the Falcons, and stayed true to his word, starting Spikes.

Rookie S Taylor Mays started in place of Lewis and made his presence felt. He recovered a blocked Falcons punt in the end zone in the first quarter for a touchdown.

Lewis, 30, has started all 50 games in which he has appeared with the 49ers. He took a pay cut to remain with San Francisco for a fourth season. He played his first five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

I think this is a no brainer given the situation the Saints are in right now. I don't know anyone better out there without a job.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Lewis is the top FA Safety however the front office has a tendency to go with a guy who has been in our system over a guy with more skill. I would not be surprised if we see Vaughn again.

Our D-backs do way too much banging in run support. I know those guys like to think they are tough, but they are built for speed in coverage. Most backs these days pride themselves on punishing DBs who think they want a piece. As thick as Harper's neck is, he can only stick it in there so many times before something painful happens. Just like last year, if our front seven doesn't give these guys some relief, we will stay banged up and trying to piece together a decent gameday cover crew.
