5 Losers of NFL Free Agency

Sam Spiegelman looks at 5 teams who failed to help themselves during the NFL free agency period.

San Francisco 49ers 

The 49ers have lost All-World linebacker Patrick Willis to retirement and defensive lineman Justin Smith may not be too far behind.

That, then factor in one of the young backers the team was depending on, Chris Borland, suddenly retired earlier this week.
