According to Adam Schefter, the 49ers will receive a 2013 7th round pick from the Cincinnati Bengals in exchange for Taylor Mays, who was a second round pick in 2010.
A future 7th round pick is better than nothing for a player whom defensive coordinator Vic Fangio seemed to suggest was not NFL caliber. Still, a 2nd round pick is tough to give up on after just one year. Perhaps the 49ers could have gotten more for Mays if they hadn’t made it so obvious they wanted him gone.
Even if Taylor Mays was Mike Singletary’s selection, this is a failure for Baalke. He cannot keep whiffing on high draft picks if he wants to remain a GM in the NFL.
