If it happens... it's really no big surprise, but the urgency leads one to wonder if we're either (planning on) putting the bank down for Nnamdi Asomugha, or confident in Patrick Peterson/Prince falling to us (somewhere) within the first round.
Adios Nate. You had one game changing play in ur career as a 49er and you fumbled it away to the Falcons.
Suppose Clements rejected a reduced salary?
This will be interesting, I just can't see the FO cutting Nate unless they have legitimate options.

The only option that is feasible now is Prince, but crazier things have happened!

Thats probably what it was
well making him the highest paid defender at the time proved to be brilliant, not that I wasn't excited to get him then.
Not sure why everyone is so excited? We've let all of our fa's test the market and now we are going to cut Nate. Hooray for the yorks! They've saved a ton of money. Of course now we can only field a half of team. How many daft picks do you guys think we have? We have no center, no qb, one ok corner, no NT, no starting caliber OlB. But hey, if we ever do decide to compete at least we'll have money. GTFO.

There's only a few irreplaceable players on this team. Why would we keep all the guys that were part of a 6-10 team? Clements is slow, plays dumb and jumps routes. He's completely replaceable as he was average at best. Let him walk along with Franklin, Alex Smith, and Manny Lawson.

Personally id like to see Nate renegotiate his deal & obviously take a pay cut, if not its a no brainer he must be released. Unfortunately he has become a major liability in man coverage.

I'm sick & tired of getting burnt on streaks/fades in madden anyways..
