Buying or Selling the Latest Buzz on the 49ers Free Agency Rumor Mill
Ben Margot/Associated Press

NFL teams are built through the annual draft, but free agency remains a glamorous part of the offseason because it provides clubs with a chance to acquire that missing piece to the puzzle. It's high speed, and the right signing can make all the difference.

And unlike the draft, this is a team-building period that allows franchises to court and lure known commodities. 

As patient, value shoppers, general manager Trent Baalke and the San Francisco 49ers have become increasingly proficient at perusing this marketplace. 

They don't overpay and they always get the most bang for their buck. With the official start on Tuesday, March 11 at 4:00 p.m. ET, it seems this front office has plenty of work ahead of it. Plenty of players have been linked to the team already, several of which seem very realistic. 

Not to mention, this is a team with its own players to sign to new contracts, so there's a broad scope of things on their plate.  

In the following rundown, we've compiled all of the news out there about San Francisco's recent activity, including potential free-agent targets and general buzz on the rumor mill. This also includes definitive calls on what you may or may not want to believe going forward.
