dude....coupled with Whitner's tweet this is some negative ish I don't want to be seeing.....But hey there is an entire month until FA starts so we don't know what is really going on.

However it is hard to be optimistic because you know they already had the end of season meetings with Harbaugh and Baalke regarding their plans and asking for players input.

Wow. I mean, nothing is definite yet but from all the tweets, it seems like he's a goner.

Seems that way. Like you said, nothing is definite. I can't imagine we shut the door on negotiations before FA has even started.

Whitner's stock is a lot higher now than it was 3 years ago when he left the Bills. He is going to expect a pay raise. It depends on what kind of interest he gets on the open market. I'm sure we'll put in an offer to him, but won't be overly aggressive in trying to keep him. If he finds a lot more money elsewhere, he's gone.
Whitner is bald I wonder what his barber was cutting lol

Good point.
man i love hitner, but he just doesnt break down in coverage, he's a linear player and thats exactly the opposite direction the league is going.
I think Whitner is a solid player. I can make an argument that he is a Top 3-5 SS in the league. I challenge you to name 3-4 better strong safeties than him.

You can't. Whitner is in the same mold of a Kam Chancellor and will command similar $$! SS don't make or command as much as FS!

@DonteWhitner: It's been a pleasure

Although shortly after he says:

@DonteWhitner: My last tweet has nothing to do with football...

(Not sure how much I believe that but...)

Then there's the IG post above from his barber thanking Whitner being a customer for the past few years in the bay. Kind of eerie the timing of the posts, it seems like he sees the writing on the wall expects to go into FA.

I had the same thought lol
Weve got a BUNCH of players to pay, and Whitner is far down that list. Kap, Aldon, Crabtree, Boldin, etc.

I think Whitner, Goodwin, Brown, and Manningham are all toast.

With this Bowman injury, I think we re-up with Wilhoite and Skuta. Dixon, Dawson, and Osgood are probably the lesser UFA that get brought back.

I think top two priorities in the offseason will be Boldin and Dawson re-signing. Baalke knows a lot of the success was because Dawson kept us in games when the offense typically sputters for a good 2 quarters.
