08:15 AM ET 02.01 | Coming out of the lockout, the 49ers played the part of a patient bargain hunter. The team is likely to take a similarly cautious approach this season. The 49ers will concentrate on re-signing many of their own 15 unrestricted free agents. ... If there's an impasse, like there was with [David Baas] last year? There are nearly 500 free agents from which to find a replacement. The exception is receiver. As you'll recall last year, the 49ers were one of the teams gunning for Plaxico Burress before he signed with the Jets. San Francisco, with its incoming coach (a college guy no less) and its recent history of losing seasons, was not a desirable destination for A-list free agents in 2011. This year promises to be a bit different.

Too bad Plax couldn't fire back.

They could use a player of his calibre in the shotgun.

Here you go Mr Ed,.... Tiki, Plax, Santonio, Ocho, TO, and all the miscreants will knocking down your door for a job. Have at it!

Alex Smith does have a gun. Do you think Plax has enough ammo left in the magazine to get a leg into those shots down the field?

PLAX would do well in SF

I'm not sure how much the price tag will be but, the Niners should definitely look at Reggie Wayne. I doubt that the Colts will even offer him a contract.

Marques Colston or Robert Meachem
Vincent Jackson
Stevie Johnson ( do not underestimate how many teams would love to have this guy )
Laurent Robinson
Mario Manningham ( he burned the 49ers in that play off game. He is talented.

Just to name a few.

The two on that list who I think the Niners should covet, likely won't be available. I can't see either the Bolts giving up Jackson or the Jints giving up Manningham. Stranger things have happened though.
