NT- Issac Sopoago: He is not worth half the 5 million he is getting paid. Nice guy but average player. Offers NOTHING as a pass rusher and is taken out on every passing down. He can be replaced by Ricky Jean Francois and Ian Williams
WR- Ted Ginn: Offers nothing as a WR. Kyle Williams can replace him quite easily
RB- Brandon Jacobs: Not used. Not needed.
MLB- Tavares Gooden: We have some younger, cheaper guys on the team to take his place
WR- Randy Moss: He will be welcomed back if he wants to play another year as a part-time WR but we need to get Jenkins some time.
QB- Alex Smith: He will not be given his roster bonus and we save $9.5 million on the cap. I like the guy but Kaepernick can be a more explosive playmaker for this team. Tolzien can be a capable #2. $9.750M savings.
CB- Carlos Rogers: He has lost a step and has not made nearly enough plays for his upcoming $7.1 mil salary. $5.850M savings
PK- David Akers: 3rd worst PK in the league. He has been the biggest disapointment on this team so far this season. $3.6 mil for this guy? I can see why the Eagles soured on him. $3.1M savings
SS- Donte Whitner: He does not make enough plays to warrant his 5 million dollar salary. This is a very deep safety draft $4.0M savings.
Total savings: $22.7M
We need to re-sign Anthony Davis, Mike Iupati and Aldon Smith in the next two seasons. We will need all the $$ we can get
FS- Dashon Goldson: 5 years, 40 million. We need him back. Although we have tonnes of FA's coming up, Goldson is a beast and needs to be back.
TE- Delanie Walker: 3 years, 9 million. Offers more to this team than he will to others. He should be able to be re-tained with a reasonable deal
NT- Ricky- Jean Francois: 3 years, 9 million. Valuable backup/rotational player and can start if needed.
CB- Perrish Cox: 2 years, 4 million. I think he can play a valuable role as a #3 or #4 CB
MLB- Larry Grant: 1 year
WR- Kyle Williams: He is an emerging player on this team. 5 years, 15 million
MLB- Navarro Bowman: He is among the leagues best MLB. He cannot be allowed to hit FA. 5 years, 50 million
1. (25) Tony Jefferson, SS- Oklahoma 5'10, 212
Athletic, Instinctive. Playmaker. All words describing Jefferson. He will step in and start for Whitner who ends up getting cut.
2. (35) Jordan Poyer, CB- Oregon State 6'0, 190
**trade up to 25 for our #2 and #3
Poyer has the tools to be a great CB and dynamic return man. He makes plays on the ball and will replace Rogers nicely as the nickel CB.
3. f/m Carolina- Sharrif Floyd, DE/DT- Florida 6'3, 295
Athletic and disruptive. He will learn for a year from the best in the league then eventually take over.
rounds 4-7 coming soon
