Breaking news:San Francisco 49ers: 5 Dream targets in 2018 NFL free agency
In an alternate universe where anything is possible and salary caps don’t exist, which stars should the San Francisco 49ers target during 2018 NFL free agency?
Let’s be honest — the San Francisco 49ers need a ton of work this upcoming offseason. Even after spending plenty of money on free agents and adding numerous rookies to the mix in 2017, don’t expect 2018 to be anything more than a continuation of that rebuilding process.
It all starts during 2018 NFL free agency, a period that could make or break the short-term future of this franchise. Seeing as we’re still a few months out from that time, though, I’ve decided to take a more fantastical look at the madness that’s set to ensue when March arrives.
Today, I’m looking at a few of the 49ers’ dream targets during free agency. In this scenario, I’m ignoring financial implications, players’ potential desires and possible re-signings to highlight a few impending free agents who would help fix this awful San Francisco squad. Then again, just about anything would be better based on this team’s current 1-9 record.
Either way, it’s an ambitious look at how to make significant improvements to this roster.
With that in mind, here are a few dream targets for the 49ers during 2018 NFL free agency. Don’t get your hopes up that any of them will be playing the Bay Area next year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use our imaginations to speculate on how they’d fit in.
