I have no idea why the San Francisco 49ers signed Craig Dahl this past offseason. He’s the Aaron Miles of the St. Louis Rams, minus the redeeming bad-ass story about fighting off an armed burglar in a hostage situation.
My only thought is a drunken, post-Super Bowl John Harbaugh told 49ers GM Trent Baalke, “Dahl is the missing piece.” And Baalke who is either terrible at reading sarcasm or just terrified of this guy, signed Dahl as soon as he was available.
Well, it looks like the answer might be that Dahl was brought on solely to spill the Rams secrets, and Cortland Finnegan was none to pleased.
@profootballtalk Craig Dahl is lame and weak for that glad he with another squad we know how he play thanks for the tips we know who 2 go at

That since deleted tweet, courtesy of Turf Show Times, was just the beginning of Finnegan tearing into his former teammate. He followed it up with this gem:
Craig Dahl we know how you play thanks for the tips we know who to attack early and often — Cortland Finnegan (@CortFinnegan) June 12, 2013
Or maybe he was just telling the 49ers what the Rams will try to do this upcoming season because he doesn’t think it matters.
Let’s go to Jeff Fisher for his thoughts on Craig departing.
Let’s remember some of Dahl’s better plays as a Ram in GIF form.
