I bet he would re-structure his contract to get out of Oakland. He may not for the 49ers since they aren't considered a strong contender, but there is a possibility as the 49ers are considered an up and comer and they're just across the bay so he doesn't have to move away from the bay if he has a family there or likes it there.
I can't think of a team that would make more sense for him to go to. He's a born & bread California boy, went to Cal, and has been living/working the Bay area for over 10 years. Dude wouldn't even have to move (probably would though, depending on where he lives).
I think he makes around $3 million in 2010, that 16 million deal is a team option for 2011. Also think Al front-loaded the signing bonus so that may not hit our cap too hard either.
I'd make that trade in a heartbeat.
