Gore DOES NOT have $750,000 incentives for 1600 yardage combine, it is actually based on being active for 13 games, 600k in 2012, and 750k in 2013-2014.
Brooks can void his de-escalators by doing 3 things, 1. 93% playing time on defense, 2. 49ers win 12 games, and 3. 49ers make NFC Championship game. If he does not meet them, his 2013 salary will drop by $2.5M, same goes for every year under contract, but also has 500k increase for 12 sacks the previous year.
McDonald added an extra year onto his contract, now signed through 2016. He had his 2015 salary bumped up from $2.3M to $4M, but 2016 is $1M base salary.
Obviously we know of Rogers and Vernon redoing their deals to get the Bowman extension done, so dont look for them to be cut this offseason. The trade of Vernon isn't likely. 1. Makes no sense as he will be a big part in the future, and 2. Cap Wise. If we want good compensation, then you need to do a pre june 1 trade, for a high pick, but that makes all his pro-rated money from bonuses go into that year traded, unlike post june 1 where it's over 2 seasons.
And currently $1.475M under the cap.
