We already know that Russell Wilson asked for new contract in Seattle. If Kaep demands new contract, will/should Niners give him it and how much should they pay him?
My guess is Kaep will command a good 15-20 million on the open market. But obviously these are not perfect market conditions (since he is still bound to his rookie contract). My biggest worry is that he will either hold out or threaten to leave after this current contract is over due to feeling disrespected.
I was also thinking since we have found our franchise QB (I think), maybe Baalke should consider start shifting most of the salary to the offensive side of the ball. If you have an elite QB, you want to maximize that advantage by surrounding him with as much talent as possible on offense. I'm a little worried that we may have over-extended on defense by giving contracts to guys like Rodgers and Brooks (who I like). I think we should focus on solidifying the OL for the future and getting more depth at WR. I'm sick of going into the playoffs with only one good WR that is healthy for the second year in a row.

If he does, trade him for Aaron Rodgers?
f*ck Rodgers. He is a dinosaur that will fade into obscurity along with Brady, Ryan, and Manning. Guys like Kaep, Wilson, RGIII, and Luck are the new "elite" QB's of the NFL and will be dominating the league for years to come.
