Eventually we will need to pony up the cash for our Guards, whoever they are, Boone, Iupati, Kilgore(If not at Center), and Looney. If those guys break out, and future picks, we need to break the bank a bit on the OL, it's the glue that holds our offense together. Without Kap wouldn't be Kap. He is a legit top 10 QB, but behind a crappy OL, he would play like s**t. We need to keep our best, and let the less great walk, it sucks to see Brown not apart of the future, but I rather keep the younger Culliver, who has #1 CB skills written on him over Brown, who may have peeked. Is he a True #1 CB? We all think/thought Rogers was/is. We have 4 legit CBs who could be #1's. If Nnamdi comes back strong, we best keep him over Carlos. Tought decisions lye ahead, but trust me, we have the cap space, and the FO people to get it done.
Realistically can we fit Iupati, Aldon and Kap under the cap after 2015? We were discussing this in the thread about T.Brown. Guys like Brooks might have to take some sort of cap-friendly pay cut. I also think Tank might replace Raymac or Justin and that could be 6 million saved, enough for Iupati's raise? Kaep and Aldon alone will eat up 30 million or so.
Yeah, we can fit them, we can do 2 of them in 2014, and hen the other, say Aldon, since he has a team option in 2015. We also can look to Staley, he has high base salaries, do a redo, extend past 2017, give him a nice signing bonus, and a roster bonus in a yr or 2. Brooks needs to step up. He gets a lot of slack, some derservent, but some not. He plays all over the place, DE, OLB, even ILB it seems.
He has de-escatalors in his deal, same as Anthony Davis, based on weight requirements.
