The 49ers have generated more frenzy during the first week of free agency than their second-tier signings would warrant alone.
Their visit with Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner qualified as bold, puzzling and/or misguided, depending on your point of view.
General manager Scot McCloughan subsequently said the 49ers had not ruled out adding Terrell Owens, although the San Francisco Chronicle cited a source saying the 49ers would not bid for him.
None of the 49ers' remaining unrestricted free agents qualifies as critical to re-sign. Donald Strickland might head the list.
49ers UFA re-signed: Takeo Spikes, LB; Allen Rossum, return specialist.
49ers UFA lost: WR Bryant Johnson (Lions), DL Ronald Fields (Broncos) and QB J.T. O'Sullivan (Bengals).
49ers UFA added: Brandon Jones, WR, Titans; Demetric Evans, DL, Redskins; and Moran Norris, FB, Lions.
49ers restricted free agents: none.
