Niners place tenders on 3 players

Leveraging their draft. Now OLB, DE, and S aren't as pressing. It gives them more options with the 7th pick. I think it was a good move.

It does protect them from getting nothing for a player leaving, however, pass rush is still the top priority at #7.

All three of these guys would be, at the very least, useful role players next season.
.. But would that really be this upcoming draft? My understanding is that the compensation will be given the following year.. No??

anyhow, if we had to choose with player we should not wanna lose among the tree, i'd keep Ray McDonald..
Interesting on Manny, who's a 5 year player. I wonder if the assumption going forward is that UFAs will require at least 6 years of service, instead of 5 years in the old CBA....and RFAs still at 4+ years.

The comps for RFAs would impact this year's draft.

I believe I heard that was one of the issues in discussion.
winning.
Agree on the pass rusher...if Quinn's there, they take him in a heartbeat. Same with Dareus, Peterson, et al. I really don't expect either Peterson or Miller to be on the board, though.

They could look at offers from other teams, however the 49ers can match any other teams' offer & keep those RFAs.

doesn't fix out pass rush problem.

Not at all, but we are in less of a dire situation than if we let them walk.
I love the move - Smart Business. Even if we don't want them we can at least get something [draft picks] for the time invested in them instead of just letting them walk.
Are there any negatives on placing a tender? If you get free draft picks, why wouldn't you put a tender on all your RFA's?

We can match whatever offers they get if we dont we get draft picks from the team that signs them

How would they determine what round of draft pick we get ?

what ever round they were picked in right?
What, no Alex
