I still don't think we lose that many impact players. And doesn't Goodwin have one more year on his contract? Grant I can see leaving to be a starter or for more money. I think Parys, Leonard Davis, Clark Haggans, Perrish Cox, David Akers, Brandon Jacobs, Ted Ginn, Kyle Willams and Tavares Gooden will be all goners next season. That really doesn't open up that much cap space but leaves room for possibly all our draft picks to make the team. I just don't see us not re-signing Isaac Sopoaga, hes been very solid NT for us and we all know NT's aren't easy to find. I think Sopoaga gives the 9ers a hometown discount. Don't get me wrong, I still hope the 9ers try to get a NT in maybe the first three rounds.
Goodwin is entering last season in 2013 with around $5M cap number. Cox is under contract at $555k. guys like Kyle Williams and Anthony Dixon are on cheap deals, and will tested with draft picks, or upgraded in free agency if we create enough space.
I think the obvious is cut or trade Alex, cut Haralson, Cut Akers, Redo/Extend Smith(Justin), Whitner and Manningham(He may not be the most obvious, or likely, but he can save us some room). Then it comes down to priorities.
I would say we keep Goldson, either RJF or Sopoaga(Lucky if we could get both, but we want to add vet depth at Tackle, then not happening), either Gooden or Grant(I like Wilhoite as 4th ILB)
The only one I can see back is Moss for vet leadership, he seems liking being a 49er.
Unsure on Brock and McBath, I wouldn't give either a 1yr $1.26M tender offer as a RFA, but both at 1yr non guaranteed 630k is fine for camp battles.
If Maiocco is right on the comp picks, we could IMO trade that panthers 3rd for a 2014 2nd and 2013 5th, gives us ammo for 2014. We need a NT and backup DE no matter what. TE like a Zach Ertiz or Dion Sims. CB could be in 4th or 5th rd. Pass Rushing 3rd OLB. Hope Fleming and Cam Johnson can do something.
