Jason Aponte of Niners Nation and the Sprint Right Option Podcast joined Sactown Sports to discuss in-depth what the San Francisco 49ers have done this offseason and what moves are still possible with potential free agents.

Topics discussed include:

  • Was signing Javon Hargrave on the first day of free agency a surprising move?
  • What are the strengths of the roster and where are there still weaknesses?
  • Did the 49ers give up too many players in the first week of free agency?
  • If fans are conflicted about the signing of Sam Darnold, what message could be conveyed to them to ease their minds?
  • Will there be a quarterback competition between Darold and Trey Lance?
  • Summing up the Jimmy Garoppolo era in San Francisco
  • Will the Niners try to move up in next month’s NFL Draft?
