Former Falcons, 49ers OG Zane Beadles retires

Recommended Posts

Credit to him for how long he lasted in this league, but man, I do not have fond memories of him as a 49er fan.

I like PFF, but I feel he was one of those players who got a really good deal on the back of a PFF rating that was just so far from reality.

His play 'magically' took a leap when Peyton Manning took over at QB, in particular 2012 I think. The ball came out faster and protection calls were obviously better.

He struggled in his final year as a Bronco especially vs power and I was amazed when the Jags gave him what was basically a 2 year, $12.5m deal. Whilst that deal surprised me, I was floored the 49ers then decided to give him another $7m over 2 years.

Fair play to the guy. He was an above average starter at his peak and managed to have a 9 year, $24m career. Don't hate the playa' ...

Farewell Zane. Hard to envision him making the Hall of Fame without a ring though.
