He's 33... And if we pick up any FA it should be a somewhat competent oline guy.

Agreed. I'd rather pick up a veteran offensive lineman at this point than Brooks. Although I did think about him while watching the 49ers preseason. Solid player, super bowl experience, is it 4th or 5th ranked in total sacks in 49er history? Pretty solid player and the Chargers run defense is suspect in the middle. If he was in his prime, definitely.

We have been using Nigel Harris with Jatavis in 4-2-5, and Nigel looks like he belongs here.

Onwualu sheds blockers better than Dzubnar, and shows better football speed, in spite of supposed size and speed concerns.

Perry may be out. (capital P, lol)

Before we talk about Grandpa Brooks.

Maybe not as a starter, but he could be a worthy backup. Who knows who else could go down. Perryman will miss half of the season if his injury lasts 8 weeks.

O-line is the biggest need though. No arguing that.
