WTF is going on?

i think its just the start of the process. locking up guys whose contracts are expiring this year or next, trying to use some of this years extra cap to eat up some of the new contract money, getting a feel for what kind of negotiations they are in for. I expect a few of these guys to be extended in the next few weeks, and some others to wait until the end of the season. I imagine, too, that some of these "feeler" talks have been going on for a few weeks. after all, I doubt Boone's deal was done in a day.

I don't think its anything to worry about yet.

We have to use this cap space ASAP, if we want a lot of these guys on the roster next year using what we have now is imperative. Backups turning down new contracts.....?

for all we know, Boone turned down the first offer that came his way too. All we know is that the team has started negotiations with certain players. Just because they haven't signed them yet doesn't mean anything--certainly not that there isn't any "loyalty" or that we are "lowballing" them.

frankly, i don't blame career backups on a (finally) winning team trying to take advantage of their chance to get a good payday.

Still worries me, when is the deadline to extend players under the current cap?

Ahmad Brooks - LB - 49ers

Ahmad Brooks is one of a handful of players to reportedly turn down a long-term contract proposal from the 49ers.


Others believed to have turned down an offer are RG Adam Snyder, TE Delanie Walker, ILB Larry Grant, and S C.J. Spillman. Brooks has expressed an interest in staying with the 49ers long-term, but he apparently wasn't thrilled with the team's offer.

Man that sucks, it was probably a low-balling deal. Baalke and Paraage are just trying to lock up players before the price starts to go up, we're 10-2....too late.

we still have some cap room to play with now, makes sense to get some guys under contract and use this years remaining money to take the burned off of next year

It does make sense, but the players also new what they were doing. Its seems like its gonna get really hard to re-sign these guys now that our 9ers are 10-2 with most likely more wins to come. But Snyder, Brooks, Walker and Grant need to be locked up, Spillman I could careless, a draft pick could easily replace him. Man, the FO is gonna have some hard decisions next off-season.

I just don't get the point of leaving a winning franchise. You are now part of something special and leaving for a bit more money is more important? I understand its a business but making $10 million and losing or making $7 million and winning....I would rather have fun and win.

Of course I'm speculating, but maybe they want to stay, but their agents are guiding them the wrong way. I have a feeling we might lose a couple starters in the off-season, doubt the 9ers would want to get into a bidding war. I can handle if Snyder leaves, but we gotta lock up Brooks, he wreaks havoc on that left-side.
I hope we resign Goldson ASAP. Rodgers looked like burnt toast when he wasn't back there

This is simple negotiations. The players have never been happier and the FO is trying to capitalize on that fact. They make an offer and the player's agent counters. We are in one of the best situations for negotiating contracts that a team can be in:

1. Team officials have shown their willingness to offer contracts. Players and agents appreciate that. There are plenty of teams out there that put themselves in holding patterns because they don't know which direction to take the team.

2. Coaches have shown that they will praise players accordingly rather than withhold praise to gain leverage. Remember how Harbaugh immediately stated that they want Josh Morgan back after his injury? You have to realize how special that is.

3. Veterans are even willing to admit how much they want to be back with the team. Carlos Rogers went on NFL network and flat out said he wants to be back here. You hardly ever see a FA in his first year with a team come out and say that.

4. We are winning and all signs point to longevity for this franchise. Make no mistake, salary will always be an issue. These players have short careers and they need to set themselves up for the next 60 years, but winning plays a role. There are few teams with a better atmosphere and that will be important.

All of that said, we will lose some players next year, but the FO will have done their due diligence and decided they can replace the productivity if it happens. THe fact that contracts are being offered is ONLY good news!

Pretty much this. Apart from Spillman who probably should have signed, the others are probably working on the assumption that you always say no to the first offer.

I think the key players will be back.

Yep. This is negotiating 101. Always give a low offer and you just work from there until both sides are happy. Kinda surprised some people here are freaking out. I think last offseason was enough to prove that Baalke knows what he's doing here.
Funny sht dude. Maybe in his locker?
I think Delanie Walker is gonna leave to be a starter somewhere

I hope not, I wanna see what he can do in year #2 of Harbaugh's offense ..keeping the Davis / Walker combo should be a priority
Congrats to Boone, he overcame a personal problem in his life to make millions doing what he loves.

A league source told CSNBayArea.com on Thursday that the 49ers have presented contract proposals to several other players but each has turned down the organization's offer.

Among the players to whom the 49ers are believed to have offered new deals are outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, guard Adam Snyder, linebacker Larry Grant and special-teamer C.J. Spillman.

That's fine, it's ok for them to reject the initial offer, doesn't mean we won't get them in the end, here's to hoping that Baalke is just throwing out some lowball offers. I'm not going to let this worry me yet.

It is good to see that he's working from the bottom up in regards to contract extensions, it locks our core of solid players and with whatever money is left over, we sign the better players that we can come to terms with, the rest will walk and we'll fill those positions through the draft.

I'm hoping anyways.
