Anthony Davis signs five-year contract extension

Maybe that's just wishful thinking, but making moves this early tells me they are focused on getting all these deals done WAY, WAY early and effectively get them under market value.

Davis still has 2 years left on his rookie deal. I'm betting that his contract doesn't change till his rookie deal is finished. Anyone care to make any bets on what the market will be for players like him in 2 years?

The numbers for Davis don't seem that bad at all for a high-potential guy that is still extremely young, which is a plus for the 49ers. As for your point about market value you are absolutely correct. Not only will Davis be entering his physical prime in a couple of years, he will have had a couple more years of solid (and steady) production from which to form the basis of his next contract. So yeah, I believe this extension appears to be cost effective.

Long-term, I think Crabtree, Aldon Smith, and Kaepernick will be the expensive trio that may not stay together in 3 years. Based on recent history, expensive WR's almost always seem to hit the market so I'm thinking of those 3 the 9ers are likely to rank Crabtree at the bottom. Not based on talent as he is a #1 WR; the real question is how big will Kaepernick's salary get.

Given our issues on defense in the absence of Justin Smith, I feel the Bowman/Willis tandem may have to be broken up if we want to keep Aldon Smith, Crabtree and Kaepernick. They are great, but they didn't pick up the slack, and quite frankly at their salaries they should have.

I was with you till the Bowman/Willis comment. I don't think they'll split them up. They are under contract for several more years and I don't see them trading/releasing either one of them.

Crab is the tough one for me. I want him to come back. I'm thinking they may let him play out these last 2 years, possibly franchise him for a 3rd...but he may be gone after that.

I'd love it if they could extend him now, but I just don't see that happening.
Was "get paid a large sum of money for only being good for 1 season" on his bucket list?

He's been stellar ever since Chilo was removed from the lineup...

No he won't, Crab loves money more. He's a great receiver but there is no way the team will pay top dollar for him. Baalke is too smart to waste all the money on a receiver.


He's not a #1 reciever. By that I mean a size, speed guy. He's a possession reciever, but someone is going to pay him as a #1. That's why we need to draft someone so when that day will come.

You're so wrong it's not even funny. About not being a #1

Got to agree with gold49er here. Just because he doesn't have the measurables of Calvin Johnson doesn't mean he's not a #1 receiver. He gets open, can break tackles and is great at getting YAC.

I might be wrong, but it sounds like you expect a #1 WR to be 6-4 with great hands and runs a 4.4. If so I fear you might be waiting a long time for another Johnson or Fitz to show up, and hopefully the 49ers won't be anywhere near low enough to draft them (at least with our own picks)


Crabtree runs a 4.50 forty. He's not a deep threat that can seperate and jump over corners. He's a possession, move the chains, reciever who is very good but is not a homerun threat. Crab does his work underneath the coverage. A #1 works over the top of the coverage. Those are the one's that get paid like #1's.

So Cris Carter wasn't a #1 receiver? I guess #2 receivers can make the hall of fame as well. So, really, it doesnt matter. Crabs is a major weapon who we can call a '#2' if you want.

The 'Zone has told me that if you are a first round pick, not only are you expected to step in and start right away, but anything less than making the Pro Bowl every year is wholly unacceptable.

Should you fail to meet this criteria, you will be swiftly and mercilessly mocked as the bust you are by random people on the internet. Also, you will spend the remainder of your 49er career on the bench (where you belong), praying that Trent Baalke doesn't exile you to the land of free safety.

I know this all to be true. The 'Zone never lies....

Culliver to FS!!!!!!

I love the move... It's a great move that we have extended Davis' contract now rather than later.

I actually thought that we were going to lose him in 2014 once we needed to resign Iupati, Crab and Kap. I was afraid that Davis will be the odd man out, and I'm just really glad that we took care of him this year.
Love it
LOVE IT!!!! Great move by our FO yet again. Now its time for Big Mike and Kaep, the way Crabs handled his rookie deal, I don't think there's a chance in hell he's going to give a hometown discount and stick around. Jerry World will pay him whatever he wants to return to Texas. Just like with Dashon, he'll be gone.

But back to Anthony, love how much he's improved over the past 2 seasons. At only 23, the sky is the limit for him! Back in 2010, he was the 3rd T taken in the draft.

#4 Trent Williams
#6 Russell Okung
#11 Anthony Davis

All 3 were LT prospects coming out of college, but only Davis moved to RT. The other 2 guys signed new deals before Davis. Lets see what those numbers look like

Trent Williams
Contract: 6 yr(s) / $60,000,000 - Signing Bonus $3,000,000 - Average Salary $10,000,000 - End Year: 2015 - Free Agent: 2016 / Unrestricted
Russell Okung
Contract: 6 yr(s) / $48,500,000 Signing Bonus $1,680,000 - Average Salary $8,083,333 - End Year: 2015 - Free Agent: 2016 / Unrestricted
Anthony Davis
Contract: 7 yr(s) / $39,670,000 Signing Bonus ?????????- Average Salary $5,667,143 - End Year: 2019 - Free Agent: 2020 / Unrestricted

I would pick Davis over Okung ANY DAY, Trent is a push in ability for 2/3 of the price. I know the other 2 are LT's so the numbers are higher...but wait, what do Joe Staley's numbers look like????

Joe Staley
Contract: 6 yr(s) / $28,120,000 Signing Bonus - Average Salary $4,686,667 End Year: 2017 Free Agent: 2018 / Unrestricted


Well well, Joe is considered the best LT in the league, and Anthony was selected to Peter Kings All Pro team. If you add Joe's and Anthony's average salary together, you get Trent! ( I know I know, those numbers are misleading, but still funny to read )


Bottom line is that Anthony Davis is just 23 and considered one of the best RT's in the entire league. He has the ability and agility to play LT or RT. If he continues his upward trajectory of improvment each year, he will be an absolute MONSTER next year and beyond. A young, healthy, perennial All Pro that would have averaged 10M per year if he was allowed to hit the Free Agent market. We are getting an All Pro type player JUST ENTERING his prime. The 9ers FO has their sh!t together!!!! LOVE IT!!!!
Great comeback and work ethic by this cat. Sounds cheesy but twitter helped light a fire in that fat ass of his

His first year he stuggled , like normal and the people let him know it. You can tell it got to him and he definitely showed up ready to go.


Keep up the good work A Davis.

Forgive me 'Zone for actually saying it out loud, but Crabtree reminds me of Michael Irvin. Fast enough to go deep if he has to but not fast enough to do it every down (a la young Randy Moss), strong hands, gets open, physical, moves the chains, etc.

Letting Crabtree walk would be a huge mistake for us—especially considering the rapport he has with Kap.

Staley's deal was for 43M not the 28M, he got a huge $11M roster bonus when he signed it in 2009.
