After a disappointing loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers will have to start from scratch once again. It's only obvious that we talk about the offseason now, right?
Well, I can already see the countless eyes rolling from 49ers fans as they read the above sentence. Yes, I understand the loss still hurts, and the injuries to NaVorro Bowman and Mike Iupati were inopportune, but brighter days are ahead.
Still, who doesn't like to hear about free agency? For some teams, it's their Super Bowl every year. With the 49ers, maybe not so much. But one can't deny the rush and excitement of free agency.
In recent history, the 49ers haven't been categorized as big spenders in free agency. This is a team that builds through the draft, but you never know what bargains can be found in free agency.
The 49ers found a few of those bargains in Carlos Rogers and Glenn Dorsey, so expect a similar approach this offseason.
