The shortened offseason got off to an incredibly slow start for the San Francisco 49ers. Their only addition was five time Pro Bowl Kicker, David Akers to the roster, while losing a few key defensive components at the same time.

Over the course of the next couple days as the 49ers would bring in starters at key defensive positions and a shiny new threat on offense. This silenced skeptics—for a bit.
Today, I am going to focus on the major free agents that signed with San Francisco and what they will bring to the table.
