    According to Adam Schefter on twitter:
    49ers sent out a mass email this afternoon to teams around the league to try and trade safety Taylor Mays.

    How bad is he that he's being traded this early?

    Between this, and the fact that Pete Carrol avoided him in the draft, it puts big questions marks on him

    Darren Smith opined (no facts just his opinion) that it might have been something between him and Harbaugh - two type A personalities with bad blood from college? Take it with a grain of salt

    The local standard is rather poor.... I certainly won't argue that. ;)

    He doesn't seem to be the most informed guy concerning the NFL though. Marty is more knowledge than he is frankly.

    Oops...... I accidently quoted myself. :D

    I don't think he would claim to be as he admits himself that he is more of a baseball guy. But I would be willing to bet that he does have a lot of contacts within the national media.

    Very true. Anyone looks good compared to Hacksaw or those jack wads on 1360

    If anything he'd be good for special teams and maybe a little added depth but I don't see us giving up anything for him. I was a fan of his during his USC days so I wish him the best wherever he lands.

    I watched Taylor Mayes at USC and he is HORRIBLE in coverage. All he care about is hitting people hard which is good, but when you actually need him to cover someone, he just cannot do it.

    there could be some validity to my theory - after all, why on God's green earth does any team email everyone and say take him off our hands for nothing?

    And he admitted that it was him talking out his backside, but looking at what's going on, does anyone have a better theory?
