Can you elaborate? Why do you think he would prefer to restructure his deal to stay here vs hit FA in an uncapped year?
cause there is no guarantee he gets anywhere near what he got in 2007. PLus with the rule of top 8 not being allowed to sign big name guys to big deals, he would be better off staying in SF, plus he likes it here.
And he IMO should stay at CB, he is our best CB, Brown and Spencer are decent but didnt prove to me anything.
I'm talking about restructuring his deal in the context of moving him to safety. I don't see why he would agree to stay here and play safety when somebody else would definitely pay him more to play CB. Whatever he got as a CB in 2007 would be irrelevant if we're looking at him as a safety in 2009.
If we're keeping him at CB, than the restructure will be for CB money, not safety money. And he would be much more likely to stay here.
I don't think Nate stays here if we ask him to restructure his deal and play safety. He wants to play CB more than he wants to be here and somebody else will give him that chance if we don't.
