2011-2012 49ers Off Season Signings (FA's and/or Trades)

smart because you dont look like the redskins or raiders after a year or two with a bunch of overpaid losers. if someone sucks your off the hook in one year. if they like the team and theyre good they resign. its like a trial run. i think its very smart actually.
For the team? Smart.

For the players? Not so smart. The players are doing 1-year deals because they think this will be the year they breakout and prove they're worth a huge deal. Its a great mindset, but usually not based in reality. Reality is, there will be a flood a FAs next offseason as well, due to all of these 1-year deals. If they don't have a breakout year, they're right back where they started.

Plus we save on the cap space this year so if they perform good then we have the $$ to resighn them, if they dont, then we have the money to sighn someone who will.
i think many of these guys signed with places that they wouldnt mind staying long term with anyway. no one wants to move every year. braylon already said he wants to shut it down here if the niners do well this year.
We have two years before we are forced to do that 89% of the cap spending crap. I think Jed is saving that money not spent for the stadium.

1 yr deals are nice, until next year when we have like 7 guys to resign, but who knows we may do the same thing next year and just fill it in with more 1 yr contracts.
I think its very smart for the team. I expect that players that do well will get offered generous extensions before FA opens up next year. With all the cap room we will have we should be able to retain the players that we want.

This
Edwards is coming back provided he plays his way to a longer contract.

Goldson is gone again after this year. He wants his big money deal if he ever gets offered one.

Rogers may let us have the right to match a contract if he enjoys the coaching staff and the situation continues to improve.

Players still had to choose where they were gonna sign their deals and its safe to assume that allot of them were told "if you play well we will pay well" once the CBA becomes a little more familier to front offices. Teams are gonna be forced to meet that minimum salary cap in a couple years and this is just a tryout for who cashes in on the extra spending.
It's smart. It is very smart for a team with a new GM and coach. It lets the staff build through the draft while being a competitive team. It lets the team be competitive while the rebuilding process takes place.

Right on the money!!!
It's a 'try, then buy' FA deal. Instead of multi year with guaranteed money upfront, you give them a year's worth of money to see if they are worth the money. Lessen the chance of getting a free agent lardass out for the big payday like Haynesworth.


Smart

Until we get the QB situation resolved...it is a smart move...Most experts say it take three years for a QB to learn the west coast...no point in signing big contracts until we have a QB to lead the team....

damn I guess everything paid off in the end. We got Goldson for 2 million bucks lol
Aldon Smith over Lawson
Rogers over Clements
Goldson for 2 million bucks
Soap to NT
Braylon Edwards for 3 million bucks
Goodwin over baas
Whitner at SS position
I like all those moves

I don't like Grant/Bowman over Spikes
I'm not to sure about Macdonald at LE
I'm not sure about our rg position with Rachal


Decent off season I'd say. We got a good bargain on a couple of deals. Hopefully it turns out ok.

I would still like to see some more D line depth before the season starts.
