Why would Aldon Smith want to rework his contract? He will be in his second year and some are already calling him one of the best pass rushers in the league.
If anything the 9ers will probably have to start saving up for when his rookie contract expires in 4 years.
Vernon Davis is a team leader, and the biggest playmaker on the offense as he showed last season in the playoffs. While he is the top paid TE, his contract isn't that huge to have to rework.
Crabtree, will get one more year to show he is worthy. If not he will either be released or traded.
We have Justin Smith for two more years. By the end of his contract he will be 34 or 35. If he is still playing at a pretty high level, he still won't be that tough to resign because of his age. I think they will need to draft for his replacement this year however.
Finally, I don't see a reason to rush in Kapernick. Alex Smith was a legit receiver away from the superbowl last season. Another year in the offense and the addition of a motivated Moss and perhaps a Laurent Robinson or drafted receiver, I think we will be a superbowl favorite.
Why fix something thats not broken? Lets let Kapernick come along at a healthy rate. We all know he has all the tools. Athletic ability, Arm Strength, Size.
Alex is a hard worker and real professional. Lets hope Kapernick can learn from Alex in that department.
This method worked well for Rodgers.
I don't think you understand.
1. deals are re-worked all the time to shift contract dollars around, often transparent to the player.
2. we front-loaded Willis' contract to 2012, taking a $17.5m hit this year and much less in future years. We should do that for VD too.
