He's done an outstanding job, and we expect big things from Tank."Carradine weighed in at 276 pounds at this time last year.

He noted that the contracts of some of those players toll. That is, if a player, such as Lattimore, does not appear on the active roster, then the year does not count against his contract. Lattimore therefore is signed for four seasons, through the 2017 season.

While Carradine never played a snap last season, he did appear on the active for five weeks before the defensive end was shut down altogether in December. Therefore, his contract - as well as Joe Looney's in 2012 - does not toll.

Glad to know we didn't lose a year on these players.

So to be clear, Lattimore, Carradine, Dial, Looney, Marquadt, etc...their contracts don't "start" until this second year (2014) and extend another year d/t their non-use to (2017) now?

My thought was we would lose a year on Carradine because he was on the active roster, though he did not dress. Guess the article says otherwise. But looks like Lattimore and others such as Okoye, who has a 3 year contract, but was put on IR, we won't lose that year. But they did get paid though.

OK, see, that's how I interpreted it as well. So basically, we wasted a year on Carradine's contract since we suited him up and he was active for 5 games.
Update:

Mandelbaum is also president of the Santa Monica Sports Foundation, which is studying ACL tears in the NFL. Among the collaborators on the project is the 49ers team physician, Dr. Tim McAdams, along with team physicians for the Giants, Rams and Browns.

So what could Carradine's knee complication mean for his NFL future? Mandelbaum said Harbaugh's optimism isn't unfounded. Arthrofibrosis, while not common, can generally be resolved with proper treatment and aggressive rehabilitation. Mandelbaum stressed he was speaking in general terms because he didn't have knowledge of Carradine's condition.

"I wouldn't say it's routine, but when it occurs the team of surgeons will focus on it," Mandelbaum said. "They'll take care of it, clean up the scar tissue, take care of whatever manipulations they need and, at the end of all that, the prognosis is very good …

"In general, when you have a significant high-energy injury to the knee – an ACL (tear), an MCL – there's a direct relationship between the severity of the injury and the amount of scar tissue that occurs. A simple injury? No chance of scar tissue. A more complicated injury. More scar tissue."

If, indeed, Carradine's prognosis is good, the 49ers can expect to finally receive a contribution from the No. 40 overall pick in last year's draft.

This is the same guy who provided some feedback on Bowman and how he should be able to come back 100%. He is a ray of sunshine
I swear this training camp may be the most exciting in my football memory. It is like christmas with us getting what seems like two entire draft classes at once. Three redshirts from last year....all early round picks, plus what ever we haul in this time around. We could go from vet contender to hungry, super athletic and young in a heartbeat.

It's true!

This is why Baalke has been receiving praise on the zone

Tank Carradine, on @957thegame, says he's completed healed from his ACL tear and feels "as good as new."

Tank Carradine also says he's up to 295 lbs. now, which was the ideal weight for 3-4 end, but can still speed rush. #49ers

Carradine sounds like a great young player; eager to hit the field, confident in his abilities. Says he can rush from the left or right side

Tank Carradine is like Billy Madison when he gets the ball in dodgeball. "Now you're all in big, big trouble." #49ers
Carradine, Dial, Williams coming back, not to mention the emergence of Jerrod-Eddie - that D-line everyone was worried about before last year is about to get a lot deeper.

great news. now awaiting the posts saying at 295 he wont be able to play.
6-4, 295 makes him the same height and a little heavier than Justin Smith. Let's hope he's got the same kind of motor because if he does, Niner fans will be happy.

Can't wait!
I think Justin Smith is ~300 lbs, which is his listed weight on NFL TV games (although he's still listed on-line at his rookie weight of 285)
