When the new CBA was approved and the labor dispute resolved, the San Francisco 49ers had 15 unrestricted free agents.  In addition to these 15, we can also add David Carr who will be cut and most probably Nate Clements, who will either renegotiate his contract or be cut.

General manager Trent Baalke stated that the top priority for the 49ers was to sign their own players.  He went on to say that he did not expect to be overly aggressive in pursuing free agents from other teams.

At this point, several of the 49ers' top free agents have already made decisions. Some of the players that are leaving were people the 49ers wanted back.  It's time for Baalke and Harbaugh to re-evaluate their position and make sure they acquire some players that can fill the holes on this roster.

Let's analyze what this means to the team and also what the 49ers should do with their remaining free agents that are still on the market.
