Dallas reportedly was 20 million dollars over the slary cap when the season ended and restructured a few contracts and just franchised Anthony Spencer at over 9 million dollars. Tom Brady restructured his contract and doubled his money to open cap space. Joe Flacco's new deal calls for a 29 million dollar cap hit in 2015 which will never get seen. There are multiple ways to circumvent the salary cap every year. To say the 49ers can't afford this player or this player is a joke. Big money teams just hand over big signing bonuses to lessen the immediate cap hit. Brady received a 30 million dollar signing bonus last week.
