Is Larry Allen coming back?

I’m wondering if the great warrior is going to try and come back for year 16, in 2008? Do the Niners want him to? Maybe last year was indeed his swan song, and it’s time for him to stretch out on the couch, and wait for the call from Canton. 

So, if the Niners hit the field tomorrow without #71, I guess journeyman Tony Wragge, or newly acquired FA Jeb Terry from Tampa Bay would line up at left guard? Terry is a big dude at 6’5″, 311 lbs (the Niners have him listed on their website at 511 pounds, but I’m pretty sure that’s a typo).  He (Terry) has been an on and off starter for the Buccaneers after being drafted by them in the 5th round of the 2004 draft out of North Carolina. I think it would be just dandy if the Niners could find another Joe Staley in this draft, but it seems all the touted OT’s (Michigan’s Jake Long, Pitt’s Jeff Otah, Bosie State’s Ryan Clady, and Vandy’s Chris Williams) will be history when the Niners pick at number 29. 

My esteemed colleague Mitch Juricich likes OT Gosder Cherilus from Boston College, but is he a first rounder, and will he drop to the bottom of round one? Some mock drafts say yes. Personally, I would pick him just for his name! At some point in time it’s gonna be advisable to get Adam Sndyer at Guard, as this is where his skills are probably more aligned at the NFL level. Will this be the year? We’ll have to wait and see what happens to Mr. Allen, and what the upcoming draft holds in store.
