Colts, Titans, Eagles and Saints have all shown an interest in 49ers defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Tuesday.

I hope we sign him. I think that he could be a real difference maker in our system. As a rotation player, or just winning out a starting spot, I see hunger in this guy, and he is waiting to pay off for whoever signs him.
I wouldn't count on it because I don't think we will be the highest bidder. What Kruger signing with the Browns shows is that players are more worried about a slightly bigger paycheck than playing for a contender.


I think playing for a contender doesn't enter into the young guys minds as much. They feel like they will be able to play forever and they will get their shot eventually. I think it's only the older players that know they only have a little time left to win it all factor in whether or not a team is a contender, at least that's what history shows us.

I still can't believer we lost Kruger to Cleveland, that hurt!

Does he have a meeting set with us or are we just a team "interested" in his services?

I thought we were just "interested" until I saw this.

Not sure how true it is. I know he left Philly after they signed Sopoagna.

51 games played, only 49 tackles, 3 sacks and 1 FF.

I know he was in a rotation, but he didn't even average a 1 tackle/game. Pass.
you realize games played means nothing right? for all you know he may have only played 1 snap a game; i know its highly unlikely but im just showing numbers dont means anything when taken with the wrong context.

also consider he may have played special teams (especially as a rookie) where it counted as a game played, but never played a D snap.

Hey, calling it like I see it. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile, and he just found 22,000,000 of them under a tree in Indianapolis.
