Originally posted by buck:people informed of the talks tell NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. McCoy did restructure his contract to a lower base salary Saturday, making it more like that he will not be released.McCoy is just 6 of 13 for 76 yards (5.9 YPA), two interceptions and a passer rating south of 30.0 through two preseason games. He obviously has failed to make an impression on coaches Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman.
One advantage for general manager Trent Baalke is the vacancies created by injuries to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, among other teams. Per Rapoport, the 49ers have already received calls on McCoy.
Based on what he's shown so far, he can lower his salary to $5 and he's still not worth keeping.
