Gore will not be on the team next year. Sorry fellas. The Lattimore pick was to replace Gore. His salary is way too high. The days of high paid RB's is over unless you are truly a generational player like AP.
We can field an entire productive RB corps for the same price tag as Gore's salary.
With regard to Iupati, he is replaceable. He is a good player, but not a dominant player. We paid our OT's, which is where our money should be spent on the OL. Frankly, I would extend Boone. He is far more valuable than Iupati, because he plays the OG position every bit as well as Iupati and is also our first swing tackle and plays the OT position well too. I would look at drafting another OG next year to groom, or maybe Looney plays out. Either way, OG is not a position to pay high dollar for unless the player is dominant, which Iupati is not.
Rogers is gone, period.
Crabs is not a dominant player either. He is gone.
With the depth at (gasp) WR now, there is simply no reason to pay top dollar for a WR that can't separate and doesn't command double teams.
Keap is priority #1, Aldon Smith is #2.
If Dorsey plays out he will be priority #3.
Gore and Rogers being cut makes room for Keap. The lapse of J. Smith makes room for Aldon Smith. We already have room for Dorsey. With Crabs gone, look for a move for a true #1 vet WR option in 2015.
We are set up for a dynasty, but the rest of our money needs to be spent on impact skill position players and use our many draft picks to find quality players for OL/DB depth or even starters.
