at his age, at the things he accomplished last year and in the first part of this year,, he should not be ok being a back up and doing mop up duty for the rest of his life. if he is, then he is not the mentally tough person i thought he was. i think he wants to go somewhere, be the starter and prove the niners they were wrong. who ever heard of someone his age with what he has done, being ok as a back up??
I think he should go elsewhere, but look at it from the other side. He's made millions of dollars. He should know he is never going to go to the HOF. Just had his first kid, is in pretty good shape (shoulder), but not many concussions, broken bones, etc....
So, worth millions, married, kid, settled into a community, teammates that are his friends, I could see the lure of staying here as a backup for alot less money. Hell I would. Play with my friends, still get millions of dollars, not get pulverized 16 times a year. Play if called upon, then retire with his health, thats more than many players can say.
