The clock is ticking down on the 2012-13 NFL season. This weekend will mark the beginning of the playoffs, where only 12 of 32 teams remain. The San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1) finished the regular season as division champs, and will yet again have a first-round bye.
The 49ers will be competing for a title this year, but there are many teams that have already begun preparing for next season.

In this breakdown, we'll take a look at some free agents the 49ers should take a look at when their 2012-13 campaign is in the books.
