Great! But why would he refuse to take 2.9 mil from the Jags, and then come to us for less than 2 mil? We need him bad. but I was just wondering.
I think it is because Pashos feels he has a good chance to crack the starting lineup here in San Fran. If he plays well he can land another contract. If he stayed in Jax he would likely not start and next year with no current film on him the chance of getting another long term contract diminishes.
That's my guess.
I agree, that would be my guess as well.
Also, I think he refused the 2.9 mil because he thought that he could earn more on the free market. So the Jaguars cut him and now it seems that the free market did not want to pay him that much, but since he is cut, he would be without a team now.
I think at that point, an offer from the Niners even at less than 2 mil, with a decent chance of starting is a whole lot better than being unemployed.
Anyway, I think this is a good signing for the Niners. Even though I think Snyder should and will start, having Pashos as a backup makes me feel much better about our O-Line situation
