The Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrow is back with his blog, and someone asked about what he thought about going after soon to be free agent WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Here’s his response:
T.J. Houshmandzadeh seems to perfectly fit what GM Scot McCloughan wants in a receiver – big, physical, sure hands, can block downfield. The questions are how much Houshmandzadeh benefited from Chad Johnson and Carson Palmer in Cincinnati, and whether he can be a No. 1-type player on another team. I don’t think the 49ers would be willing to pay No. 1-type money if they think he’s just a very, very good No. 2.
