Is Flozell Adams a Fit for the San Francisco 49ers?

Everyone knows that the 49ers greatest need this offseason is to obtain a right tackle. This is why most mock drafts have the 49ers using one of their first-round picks on a tackle.
The release of Adams made me think of the last time the Cowboys released a high profile O-lineman, Larry Allen. Allen came to the 49ers and gave Frank Gore an instant boost. Gore had 1,695 rushing yards in 2006, a franchise high.
While Flozell is not Larry Allen—he only has five Pro Bowl selections to Allen's 11—he could come in and be an instant upgrade on the Niners' offensive line.
There are reasons not to look at Adams. One is that he has shown a lack of discipline, including a well-documented tripping penalty last year that injured Justin Tuck. He is consistently one of the most penalized players in the NFL. 
Also, he has been criticized for having lost a step and being beat on a regular basis by some of the better pass rushers in the league.
