Courtesy of the talented Fooch at Niners Nation, it appears Ashley Lelie was picked up by the 49ers to fill their vertical threat hole. I like the 'Niners and don't wish them any harm, so I feel like that one loud woman in the movie theater during a horror movie:
Unsuspecting Team Official: Well, Ashley, it's great to have you here. If you'll just sign on the dotted line...
Me: OH GOD! DON'T DO IT! HE'S GOING TO SUCK!
Lelie: Here we go. Glad to be onboard.
Me: I CAN'T LOOK!
John Madden: BOOM! Fast actin' Tinactin!
Anguished screams as Lelie slaughters his contract with 25 catches for 400 yards and one TD.
Obviously I'm not a very big fan of the guy. He has talent, but he disappears constantly and somehow, improbably managed to be worse than both Michael Jenkins and Roddy White. If Brian Finneran had been around, he might not even have had as many catches as he did. For your sake, 49ers fans, I hope he proves me wrong, but I wouldn't expect Ashley Lelie to be much more than Antonio Bryant was for you this year.
