As window closes, 49ers must pull trade for reciever DeSean Jackson

The window to win a Super Bowl for this San Francisco 49er football team is rapidly closing.

Time and money are quickly picking apart a franchise that has been among the best in the league the last three season.

Assuming no contract extension happens this offseason, quarterback Colin Kaepernick will become a free agent following the 2014 season. Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore, Aldon Smith, and Mike Iupati are also due up in the next season or two.

With news over the last couple of days that the Philadelphia Eagles are willing to trade and/or release wide receiver DeSean Jackson, the 49ers must make a move now.

San Francisco blew it during the 2008 NFL Draft when the 49er Faithful favored DeSean Jackson, only to see their hopes dashed when defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer was selected instead.

This might be the 49ers chance at redemption to land the hometown kid who played his college ball at the University of California.

The 49ers need a burner at wide receiver, someone who can stretch the field. DeSean is perfect for Kapernick and would be the missing piece to the Super Bowl puzzle. They would have the possession receiver in Michael Crabtree, the playmaker in Anquan Boldin, and the burner in DeSean, the exact same format that won the New York Giants two championships with Victor Cruz, Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks.

The 49ers title shot is rapidly closing, and DeSean might just be the missing piece to the Super Bowl puzzle. Why not go for broke and make a move? Seattle when they acquired Percy Harvin.

Harbaugh might be out after 2015, and so might Crabtree and Kaepernick, so why not make one last push at a Super Bowl run?

    Absolutely not. He is a locker room cancer. There’s a reason Philly wants to get rid of him. The guy just signed a new contract which is more than anyone on the 9ers makes, he’s already come out and said he’s not happy with his money and is demanding more. Seattle’s signing of Percy Harvin ended up being a non-factor as he rarely played. Signing Jackson, he would immediately be the highest paid player on the team and probably do what he did in Philly, start demanding more money. His current salary would prevent us from signing Kaep and others to an extension and would require some other players to restructure their salaries. And For what? A rental player? A guy who’s going to come in and be disruptive in hopes he can put us over the top? You build through the draft, not signing divas. It’s just bad business to make the highest paid player on your team a free agent. Sends the wrong message. You think Crabtree, Aldon, or any of those guys are going to take a reasonable salary if the 9ers blow a ton of money on a free agent? No, they are going to expect the same, to get over paid. Tarrel Brown just left a champsionship caliber team to go play for a losing organization because the 9ers didn’t want to over pay him. Brining in Jackson would make this type of problem more common place. No thanks. Get a young guy in the draft that’s going to be around for awhile and doesn’t blow up your payroll. Jackson has a history of being malcontent. That makes the decision not to bring him in, a no brainer in my opinion.

      Who says he is a locker room cancer? I never heard it before. Players are always said to be locker room cancers because they voice their opinions. Not one fan is in thE locker room so it hard to assume. They just hate their paying him the money.

    we’ve got a chance to get over the hump and win a Super Bowl this season, why not take the risk? we did when we got Deion Sanders in 1994.
