I know we usually keep 3 QBs, but I wouldn't mind if we cut MBT to open up another roster spot and put Patton on IR to open up two spots for Manningham and Wright, and not cut anybody else. Our roster is deep and would like to keep all the talented players we already have.
Some of you want Nhamdi Asomugha to get cut but personally I want him to stay, yes I understand that were going to have 7 cbs on the roster but accidents happens and injuries is just one snap away from happening. Just in case one of our top corners go down with an injury, at least we have a proven veteran to step up and not miss a beat. We have Wright but none of us seen him play yet this season. Nhamdi's contract is pretty cheap too this year and we can afford to pay him, most of his money on this years contract is incentive based compensation, so if he doesn't see the field he won't get paid more money.
Just not sure we will keep 7 cbs. That's the thing... if he was #6 and Morris never came along I'd say it would be more likely. Not saying we can't though and I wouldn't have anything against it either. As for the DL maybe Dobbs and TJE both stay and we go somewhere else for cuts. McDonald, Dorsey, Smith, Carradine, Dial, TJE, Dobbs. That's still only 7 DL... seems like a lot but that's because we were down to 5 at one point and hardly holding on looking at 4 with McDonald or Dorsey potentially out.
Edit: As for how much Asomugha has earned so far:
4/2/2013: Signed a one-year, $1.325 million contract. The deal contains a $25,000 workout bonus. Another $1.65 million is available through incentives, although $1.225 million are considered "unlikely to be earned." 2013: $1 million (+ $225,000 roster bonus + $100,000 in per-game roster bonuses)
So sounds like he won't earn those 1.65 mil extra unless he had like pro bowl numbers or something like that. He has earned 500 k in base salary (1 mil/half 8 games) plus 225k roster bonus is 775k.... plus 50k in roster bonuses since still on the team 8 games in. So that's 825k. plus workout bonus is 850k total.
Means he could earn about 550k more although that adds to 1.4 million im off 75k. Either way sounds like we could save about 500k if we cut him although not sure we need it as we aren't likely to add any new players from here on out.
