Willis signs 5 year extension

Making this move tells me the 49ers feel really good about their chances of getting the new stadium in Santa Clara. Vernon Davis is obviously next on the list for an extension but we don't have to rush it and could just franchise him. That being said, we need to (and I think will) re-sign VD and also Dashon Goldson. Manny Lawson...? Alex Smith will also be an UFA but I think he re-signs after a very solid season and a playoff appearance.

I feel very good about the Niners future

I like this for several reasons. More importantly -- it sends a message to other players in the NFL.

There was a time -- 15 years ago -- when everyone wanted to play for the Niners. We were a class organization. Eddie paid well. Lots of fringe benefits. Players were paid well. They were treated well.

hookers??

Probably

Montana probably never had to pay for his own blow, too.

And he will be the greatest linebacker in league history too

Signing Willis to an extension is big in a lot of ways because now we can use the franchise tag on Vernon Davis or extend Davis and use it on Dashon Goldson or vice versa. Very good news today and a very deserving extension for the best linebacker in the NFL.

No, not Vernon. If we REALLY want the Niners to be a SB caliber team, then let's hope we are forced into deciding whether or not to Franchise Tag Alex Smith.

That would be something. I think Alex is very loyal to the 49ers and he has shown it and he has made a ton of money already, so if he has a good season and the 49ers have a successful season, I just can't see Alex leaving.
