I think Baalke/JH will not overspend for anyone. It's the $ - not the player.
They didn't resign Costanzo - who JH loved and praised openly to thhe press. They didn't resign Morgan when we need receivers.
These guys are WAY smart. They'll get Alex at their price. And Kap will learn and be more ready when his time comes.
I agree they have done a nice job of not overspending and getting the most out of 2nd tier guys in FA.
But at some point we are tempting fate.
This attitude that you don't go up in price cause a player should want to play for the 49ers is a little over the top.
We are up and coming but havn't done anything yet that makes us this magical land for FA's.
Money talks - these guys have short careers and need to maximize dollar/year.
We will go from genius to fools and a heartbeat if we keep lowballing guys and letting them walk and then hoping we can replace them with 2nd tier guys who may or may not work out.
