I kind of feel sorry for the Rhino. He's heavily under-paid and now he's kind of made a play that makes it difficult for Baalke to capitulate to him. He's got to be looking at Staley and wondering if he's done this the right way or if his agent has given him bad advice. Because if he had done things Staley's way, they might be in the process of re-writing his contract right now as well.
That's just how the Niners FO rolls. They don't negotiate with holdouts, and they've been very consistent with that approach. If they cave in just one time, it will give players future incentive to hold out.
There are a lot of questions about our upcoming cap situation. We don't want to commit big money to Boone before we find out what happens with Crab, Aldon, Iupati, and others.
