49ers claim Thaddeus Gibson off waivers

The 49ers claimed outside linebacker Thaddeus Gibson on Monday off waivers, according to a league source.

Gibson was a fourth-round pick of Pittsburgh before the Steelers waived him.  The Eagles also put in a claim for Gibson, but the 49ers had a higher priority.

The Giants also claimed Alex Hall off waivers from the Cardinals.  He’s spent time with New York earlier this year.

    Crap, if it was 4/1, you could have done a good gag and say Max Hall was claimed off waivers from Arizona after his stellar effort yesterday. Leinart would have bought it.

    Stupid move by the Steelers.
    Yeah, they needed a d-lineman but they either f’d up the draft or f’d up exposing him to waivers.

    Damn, I am sad to see this Gibson had some true potential, just stuck behind way too many good guys: James Harrison, Lamaar Woodley, Jason Worilds and Stevenson Sylvester.

    Good for the 49ers and an unfortunate gamble by the Steelers.

    I just hope JJ Watt from Wisconsin is still available when Pittsburgh drafts in April (anywhere from #18-32. Not guaranteeing a SB win, so easy on the jackass comments, folks. Just a realistic range of possibilities, that’s all).

    Or the second round for JJ Watt, I suppose. Just plays like a combo of Aaron Smith and Jared Allen. High motor, never stops and is already 6’6 and 295-300 lbs. Dude will take on double teams AND collapse the pocket.
