A drop from a great player to an average player cannot be countenanced. especially on either of the front lines. Now if it were from one great player to another great player, albeit not quite as great, then let's talk. Even then do so advisedly.
I feel that if the Niners don't retain him, it'll be because the coaches feel that he's not as great (future HOFer) as most of us fans think he is. Otherwise they'll find a way.
Larry Allen was an All Pro at LG, RG, LT and a Pro Bowler at RT. Now, if Iupati could do that, his value to the team would increase dramatically.
