ABs 1st Post NFC Title Game Mock Offseason

Earlier I tweeted out that the following players either saw an increase, or decrease in their 2014 base salaries. I was on mobile, so I wasn't able to update the website.

But here they are, Alex Boone has his base salary raised from $950,000 to $2 million.

Mike Iupati had his base salary raised from $1,600,500 to $2,770,500.

And lastly Ahmad Brooks saw his base salary drop from $5.15 million to $4.25 million.

I now have the 49ers at $7.296 million under the 2014 salary cap.

Thank you, AB. As always, a solid mock with plenty of grit to back it up. I always look forward to reading your mocks, and cap threads.

On a side note - what does Paarag have for lunch with you?

Thanks buddy. And I'll ask Paarag tomorrow at lunch what his favorite lunch meal is.

Good stuff as always...I, like everyone probably have different draft crushes, but you cant disagree with any of your logic. I too think Big Mike is probably going to get the short straw. Crabs and Kap will need that money and Gaurds can be replaced in the draft with less risk. It is definitley time to see what we have in Kilgore, Goody was gettng man handled over the last few weeks and into the playoffs.

We just signed him to a new deal A.Davis aint goin no where ...

Yep, and a lot of dead money hits.

Why would Anthony Davis be traded anyway GO?

It might just be the sour taste from the playoffs (getting manhandled by Seattle for 4 quarters) but Davis is one of those guys who's got a GREAT rep across the league, could fetch a lot of value, and I think is disposable. We replace him with a younger/cheaper option and get a draft pick out of it, why not? It gives us some more cap space (or at least I think it does) to give some of our guys long-term deals (Kap, Aldon, etc).

*Edit: Just realized we signed him 5 years $37 million last spring...lol Well, never mind then boys...I'm just frustrated from the 'Hawks game man...I'm sorry

Don't be sorry. No biggie.

He told me, and this is between you, me and 1,000+ others, he liked Spaghetti the best. But keep it a secret.

A nice Salary Cap mailbag by former NFL Agent Joel Corry.

For a team that doesn't overpay, will Colin Kaepernick's next deal forever compromise the integrity of San Francisco's salary cap?-@DeSimone80

The 49ers won't fundamentally alter their approach to contracts and the salary cap because of Colin Kaepernick. They will still sign core players to lon- term deals mostly at a discounted rate and with favorable contract structure well in advance of the expiration of rookie contracts. Having a quarterback with a deal approaching the $20 million per year neighborhood and upwards to $55 million in guarantees could change how cap dollars are allocated and may cause the 49ers to lose some key players to free agency that otherwise could have been retained. That's a consequence of having a deep and talented roster. It may become more challenging for the 49ers to sign free agents to moderate one and two-year deals with escalators and incentives. More veteran players could be signed to one-year minimum salary benefit contracts. A player receives his league minimum base salary and a maximum of $65,000 as a signing bonus with these deals. The player's base salary counts on the cap at the minimum salary for players with two years of service ($570,000 for the 2014 season) instead of at his actual base salary. The 49ers have one player with a minimum salary benefit contract this season. There were four in 2012 and none in 2011.

It will be a surprise if Kaepernick's contract is structured like Joe Flacco's deal where his peak cap number is over $30 million. It's more likely the 49ers will use something similar to the Green Bay Packers' approach with Aaron Rodgers, where the cap numbers are more manageable and without big fluctuations. Kaepernick's contract will include large per game active roster bonuses, just like San Francisco's other lucrative deals, even though they aren't in most of the top quarterback contracts. Only Rodgers and Jay Culter have them. The primary benefit of the roster bonuses is that they provide some financial and cap relief with injuries. The per game amount is only payable if the player is on the 46-man active roster for that particular game. For example, All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman has $750,000 roster bonuses ($46,875 per game) in most years of his deal. If he suffers a season-ending injury after playing eight games in 2015, he won't earn the remaining $375,000 of his 2015 roster bonus.
AB nice work as always man.

Do you know much about Jared Abbrederis, 188cm WR from Wisconsin.

Looks like a guy that we could get in the third or later and sounds very technically sound, fights for everything. And is physical. Should be able to handle the physical defenses well face. Was supposedly the best north receiver during practice at the senior bowl.

Here's a little bit on him.

"He was the most technically sound receiver here, bar none. The only time he didn't catch the ball cleanly was on an onside kickoff drill. Abbrederis is not the biggest guy here, nor is he the fastest, but he was magic finding open space and getting to the ball. He makes plays in traffic with guys hung all over him. I think he will be a better slot receiver, but he can play outside. "

Senior year - 78 rec , 1081 yds 7 tds

Might turn into my quinton Patton draft crush like last year
Boldin should be 5 mill or less. 6 mill is more than he made last year.

I don't want Whitner anywhere near this roster. He !ucking sucks. Case in point the Seattle game.

Honestly, I would rather have Dixon on the team going forward than Gore.

People need to let Gore go. It's time.

I do not get the love for Whitner either. To compare him to Goldson is an insult to Goldson's days here. But Whitner's lack of size is a serious mismatch for pretty much all tight ends these days. No thanks to Whitner
His play declined near the end of the season. It's like he just said forget tackling i'm gonna try to knock guys out. He stopped wrapping up and just throws a shoulder in there.

Whitner is so much better than Goldson, it's not even close. Goldson was the definition of a splash player, drawing penalties (stupid ones, not hard hits that got flagged), losing his assignment, getting beat deep, and then, all of a sudden making a splash play. Whitner calls that defense, is the captain of the secondary, sets the tone, and plays very solid most of the time. Look at their PFF rankings. Whitner is one of the top safeties in the league, while Goldson consistently gets negative marks. You're right, comparing Goldson to Whitner is an insult....

Are you delusional? Whitner may be the worst safety in coverage in the league. That absolutely pathetic play in Seattle is the perfect summation of him.

I will punch babies if he is even on the team next year. His lack of coverage ability forces the defense to use our front seven in coverage too much. I hate this guy.
