Like the re-signings of Boldin and Dawson, but I think you are being a little overzealous with free agency. That is not the Niners M.O. Munnerlyn and Mack should be retained by their existing teams. If the Niners don't pay a higher salary to resign Whitner, why would they pursue another veteran safety like Pollard? The Niners build through the draft because the costs are lower for at least 3 years.
I have no idea about FA and apparently you hit that right off the bat. Mack will be too expensive, I concur. Munnerlyn and Pollard, though, are unrestricted FA's. And they'll probably come cheap. Pollard made 1.3 MM last season. Whitner? 3.3. That's a cap savings of 2 MM.
Just trying to fill in the holes with some veterans for the loss of Whitner and probably a slew of CB's in Rogers, Brown, and Wright.
