Starting Cap Room at $7.4M
Resign ($-12M): Boldin, Brown, Wright, Wilhoite, Dawson
Cut ($+10M): Rogers (June 1st cut), Dahl, Baldwin, Snyder
Extend/Restructure ($+10M): Gore, Davis, Willis
Free Agency ($-7M):
Louis Delmas - S - Lions (Cut)
*Cheaper and younger safety that fits our scheme. Similar to Eric Wright, we've expressed interest in recent years.
Jonathan Martin - OT/OG - Dolphins (Cut)
*Signs a 2 year prove it deal to restart his NFL career. Potential replacement for Iupati at LG. Very cheap depth player on our roster, and younger than Snyder.
Lemuel Jeanpierre - OG/C - Seahawks (RFA - no forfeited picks)
*Pinch hit for Unger and played surprisingly well. We lost out on a great center prospect in Brian de la Puente that ended up as a very good starter for the Saints. It's time for us to poach.
Darrius Heyward-Bey - WR - Colts
*Vertical threat on our offense and plays special teams (not a returner). Replacement for Osgood. Cheap 2 year deal.
49ers trade 1st, 3rd, and LaMichael James for Jets 1st round pick
R1: Ra'Shede Hageman - DT/DE - Minnesota (via Jets)
*Explosive playmaker that has the perfect blend of size, speed, and strength to become a pro bowl player in the league. With a heavier rotation in our D-line, he will see action immediately.
49ers trade 2nd (via Chiefs), 4th, and 7th round picks for Titans 2nd round pick
R2: Jordan Matthews - WR - Vanderbilt (via Titans)
*A nice combination of skills that fits our offensive philosophy. Potential replacement for Crabtree.
R2: Ahmad Dixon - S - Baylor
*Competes with Delmas for the starting strong safety position. Projects to be a solid safety in the NFL.
R3: Michael Sam - DE/LB - Missouri (via Titans)
*Skuta shifts back to ILB, and we have two backup bookends to supplement our pass rush.
R4: Antone Exum - CB - Virginia (comp)
*Big, physical cornerback coming off an ACL injury. The injury, plus questions around his projected position in the NFL, will make him fall here. Much needed size in our secondary.
R5: David Fales - QB - San Jose State
*Competes for the backup gig to Kap.
R6: Rajion Neal - RB - Tennessee
*Similar playing style to Gore, Neal will provide depth to the position.
R7: Corry "Pitt" Brown - WR/PR - Ohio State (via Saints)
*Solid receiver with punt return skills from a good program. Good value pick here.
R7: Trey Millard - RB/FB/TE - Oklahoma (via Panthers)
*FB + Torn ACL = dropping in the draft. Lattimore and Millard is the future offense for the 49ers.
