Brock Coyle to the 49ers on a 1-year contract

Discuss any and all NFL-related topics and matters of interest here. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Not seeing any contract details yet. Only that it is a one-year deal. Guess the team really didn't want him back.

    Kind of a shame. I liked the kid, being from Montana and all, and I thought he was a key contributor if not a critical starting piece. Best of luck.

  • They must like what they see in this year's linebacker draft. I know Pete has intimated that he wants to draft a replacement for Wagner and/or Wright. Obviously Coyle was never going to push them for playing time.

  • Yeah that's a bummer.
    I guess the team thought he never filled that Heather Farwell role, or was looking to go on another direction.
    His special teams play seemed solid imo

  • Why would he need to draft a "replacement" for Wagner and Wright? Backups, sure...but replacements? Yikes.

    Exactly. Something is not right there. Wags isn't going anywhere for some time.

  • How is this Coyle kid. He has to be better that the ones we have besides Bowman

  • Wright and Wagner have amassed a ton of playing time in the last few years. It's a lot of mileage and they aren't getting any younger. My take from Pete is that they are looking for someone to (A) start training as future replacements and (B) spell Bobby and K.J.

    Wright has 2 more years before he is a UFA. Wagner has 3.

    Can somebody explain why this was moved while the Hauschka thread has been on the main forum for over 36 hours? Confused

  • He's a solid backup, and a great special teams contributor. He is on the cusp of being starter quality, but I doubt he will ever be a full season LB starter on any NFL team.

  • Coyle: liability in coverage, very 'meh' in run fits, decent special-teamer, seemed like a good kid - but his production can be replaced with a phone call.

    Exactly. Something is not right there. Wags isn't going anywhere for some time.

    I don't think anybody is thinking of replacing them this year. But if you want someone to replace either one of those players in 2-3 years from now, best to start the search now so you can evaluate and coach them up. It will be hard to replace the athleticism and instincts, but you can coach up whatever you can.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

    This is not meant to be a criticism, but was that a typo or did you really mean to write "Heather Farwell?"

    Slightly better than fringe of the roster. Decent special teams contributor. Not an asset in coverage and can be blocked easily in the run game from what I've seen.

  • I like Brock.

    He's at an age where I don't blame him if he wants to take a shot at competing for more playing time, and that wasn't going to happen in a 4-3 where the MLB is Bobby Wagner.
