I have us at $3.123M under the 2013 cap right now, and $8.841M under the 2014 cap, so combined, we would have $11.946M to work with.
Now roster moves (Note, I will link a page to which has salary cap numbers for all deals, and future years, on NCH)
Carlos Rogers - $5.1M saved
Ray McDonald - $1.499M saved, $19.5M in new money on a new deal through 2018.
Vernon Davis - $2.2M saved, $28.25M in new money on a new deal through 2019
Frank Gore- $3,333,333 saved, new $12M deal for Gore over 3 seasons, through 2016.
Patrick Willis - $2.785M saved, $41.25M in new money in a new deal through 2019.
NOTES: Willis and Davis are still among the best at their positions. And McDonald is still a good DE, so under $20M is a great deal.
Anquan Boldin - 3yr deal worth $15M($4.5M bonus, $3.5M 2014 cap #)
Mario Manningham - 2yr deal worth $7M($2M bonus, yearly $250K roster, and $100K workout bonuses, $3.35M 2014 cap #)
Tramaine Brock - 2yr deal worth $6M($2M bonus, $2.5M year 1 cap #)
Eric Wright - 1yr $2M deal
Phil Dawson - 1yr $2.5M deal
Michael Wilhoite - 1yr $570K EFA Tender
McLeod Bethel-Thompson - 1yr $570K EFA Tender (Note he will be tendered if he stays on roster past the 2013 season, doesn't mean he makes the team)
Kassim Osgood - 1yr $1,005M deal (Vet credit, only counts $570K, plus a $50K bonus)
Players we Let Walk:
Tarell Brown (Will cost too much)
Anthony Dixon (No room with Lattimore coming back)
Demarcus Dobbs (Average at best, not worth $1.3M RFA tender, maybe a 1yr deal worth $645K)
Donte Whitner (I like him, but we probably go younger)
Jonathan Goodwin (We hope Kilgore or Looney are ready to take over, if not, a simple 1yr vet minimum deal will work)
Colt McCoy (Maybe a 1yr deal worth $750K, but doubtful)
After all these are done, I have us at $12,591,047 under the cap for 2014.
The only extensions I would consider would be be,
I wouldn't touch Kaepernick yet, he needs to prove he is a great NFL QB to get a $100M deal or anything close to $14M a yr.
If we extend Aldon, we can lower his $2,336,454 base salary down to the 4th yr minimum of $645K, and save some room.
Mike Iupati and Michael Crabtree extensions could work, depends, I don't see both, maybe one this year, then in 2015, we franchise the other, if Kap hasn't been extended or become legit, and we need to franchise him.
