Niner Noise Podcast: Which 49ers to re-sign or franchise tag & free agent targets


The Niner Noise Podcast focuses on which free agents the San Francisco 49ers should re-sign, franchise tag or target as NFL Free Agency 2020  — and the legal tampering period — begins.

The Niner Noise Podcast, the FanSided Podcast Network’s San Francisco 49ers Podcast, is your weekly source for 49ers news, in-depth analysis, exclusive player interviews and more.

The league will kick off the “legal tampering period” of NFL free agency 2020 with a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA), which gives the San Francisco 49ers the information they need to decide which pending free agents to re-sign, who to franchise tag, and which players the team should target once free agency begins this upcoming week.

On the latest episode of the Niner Noise Podcast, hosts Robert Morrison (@rs_morrison) and Chris Wilson (@cgawilson) prioritize the Niners’ offseason needs, and rank the team’s “Big Three” free agents who are scheduled to hit the open market: defensive lineman Arik Armstead, free safety Jimmie Ward and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Should the 49ers offer high-priced contracts to any of these key starters, or are any of the three players worthy of the franchise tag? If the Niners let them walk, can they find their replacements in free agency or via the 2020 NFL Draft? And what position areas can San Francisco upgrade once free agency officially begins?
