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.
Any time there is talk of a player being traded before he is cut someone asks why ... the answer is always the same ... because claiming goes in opposite order of last years finish, and if you want a player you don't want someone else to claim him.
McCoy cost us a 7th round pick and a move down in the 5th ... if we get a 7th back then good riddance and lets move on.
because they would want to get him before another team does.
You never know. I thought the same thing about Alex Smith -- that a team wouldn't give up anything higher than a 4th round pick, because the 49ers couldn't have afforded to keep him and would've ended up cutting him anyway.
Now, obviously Smith is good and McCoy sucks but... It's somewhat comparable,

Management has been fumbling the rock lately last year Jenkins & now McCoy, NO BUENO
GM needs to get with the program. Tried to replace Alex with a mini Alex when we should have sought a mini Kap. Spend the 6th on a QB not trade for Colt. Cmon Baalke
I think people are realizing Baalke is only human afterall, mistakes are starting to show up. Come next draft, all eyes will be on him and fans will begin to scrutinize his picks far more closely than before.
