Whoa - thanks for bringing this to our attention.
The Winborn news wouldnt be that big of a deal, but along with the other two injuries you mentioned, it appears as if Julian Peterson may also miss the game south of the border.
Thats pretty significant news. Apparantly its same old same old for SF this yr as they suffer through wholseale injuries to their defense once again. Losing both Rumph and Plummer from that secondary was a massive loss, and if JPeterson continues to be bothered by injury, thats arguably this teams best defensive players all injured. Tough breaks.
I'm a Niners fan. Who are they getting for Winborn and is Peterson out for sure?
I don't know why the hell we would trade Winborn. I guess there are rumors that he is freelancing and not following the scheme, and doesn't fit the mold of the new Niner's. This guy is the 2nd best ahtlete on the entire team, and I would say that Winborn is our 3rd best natural LBer behind Peterson and Ulbrich (Andre Carter took Winborn's position in the 3-4). But Winborn could start on half the teams in the NFL.
I would think he commands a first day draft pick minimum... but then you gotta factor in that he is injured every year, maybe that pushes his value way down. It's not every year that you can get a quality LB like Winborn 3 weeks into the season though, I'm sure a team like Minnesota would LOVE to have this guy. If I had to guess I would say a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
P.S- Julian Peterson is questionable this week, not much other information at this time.
