For the need of the Middle Linebacker, we should try to sign julian peterson. The 49ers "franchised" him this year, and he will be a unrestricted free agent next year. That would add to the greatness of the vikings defense next year. The 49ers most likely wont be able to resign him because of the need at quarterback, and the need of money to pay draft picks. So there is about a 90% chance he will be a free agent next season. We should hit him hard!

What do you think?

Not bad ideas but I don't get your logic. Why do the 49'ers need another QB and why would you move one of the best tackles in the game to guard, and why would he want to change positions. Just curious on your thoughts.

Pace has a long term deal with the Rams and Peterson has had some injury problems the last two years so I would not want him also we will put Henderson back to the middle next year anyway in my opinion.

not to mention that Peterson has been franchise tagged 3 years in a row now.

I would love to see the Vikes get Peterson, but I don't think he would want to come in here unless he knew what the coaching situation is....If Zygi brings in a good D-coordinator and San Fran can't afford him it could happen.....

It is not a bad idea, but I would have to know more info about hte contracts for some of our current RBs, how much of a hit do we take on them and when are their contracts up.

I think that we definitely could use a stud LB but first we have to commit to a D coordinator that will put together a good scheme. We have some young guys that have come of age and we don't really know how good they are or aren't.

Even if we would have gotten Pierce last off season, who is having a huge impact in NYG, he would probably look crappy in our D.

Hard to tell, good to keep Peterson as an option if it could work financially.

Peterson would be a good pick-up.I still say use our 1 and 2 picks this year on the best available tackle and guard,there are a few monsters out there this year and then we can run the ball down peoples throats and mix in play action.Two things we cants do now.

I don't think that we need anyone untill we know exactly what we have. The Coaches have drug everyone on this team down, and I am convinced that new coaching will do wonders for the players already on the team.

For all we know, we already have a "Julian Peterson" on the team.

Good point.

There could possibly other areas of the team or defense that need attention.
