Yeah, it could be after June 1st when we cut those guy(s) since then you get to spread the cap hit out over two years. It might depend on how the draft goes; it might not. We could have our minds made up already. Maybe we try to restructure but you would think we would have done that when we did haralson and manningham. Could end up keeping all of them as well. I'd feel more comfortable with a rookie SS than FS but doubt we want two rookies at S. I think we let Goodwin play out his contract but Looney (maybe Kilgore) could probably take over now. Some how we have to make about 5 or so million to pay for our rookies. Side note Rogers just doesn't make sense to save 1.1 mil we have to save 6.23 mil, even if we spread that out over 2 years by cutting him after June 1st it's still 3.1 mil in dead money a year. in comparison we have less than 1 mil total for all players in dead money this year. If we do it after june 1st next year we would have 5.1 in savings and a little under 3 mil to spread out over 2 years which is 1.5 a year.
Both Manningham and Haralson already restructured. I'm waiting to see a new deal done with Boldin as well. Maybe more to come as well?
OLB Parys Haralson - $1.3M (with a chance to make $1.7M)
WR Mario Manningham - restructured his deal, lowering his base salary to $1.8M (they also eliminated his roster and workout bonuses)
Since our needs are the following, IMHO, these picks most likely won't tell us much of what we might do with Goodwin, Whitner, Rogers or Jennings.
Top Tier S (may need both FS & SS)
Top Tier DE
Top Tier TE
Second Tier CB
Second Tier WR
Top or Second Tier NT
Second Tier T
Second Tier C
Second Tier OLB
Second Tier PK/ST
Matt Maiocco http://www.csnbayarea.com/blog/matt-maiocco/49ers-pre-draft-depth-chart-defense
has the following right now:
FS -- Craig Dahl, C.J. Spillman, Michael Thomas
SS -- Donte Whitner, Trenton Robinson, Darcel McBath
But I expect Dahl will compete with Whitner at SS as they are similar players/styles and IQ. I doubt the coaching staff feels Dahl would give up a league high 14 TD's. I also expect, IMHO again, Robinson will be competing with Spillman and a high draft pick at FS.
It's also interesting to note that upon talking about Goldson's departure, Whitner first mentioned Nnamdi and then Dahl. Would Fangio be looking to move Nnamdi to FS? And let's not forget about Culliver here either...if he try out there and impresses, then either Nnamdi or Rogers takes over his previous role.
