If Whitner doesn't return, I seriously think it will be because the 49ers don't want to pay him rather than him wanting a large amount of money.
With that said, the 49ers have shown willingness to place a Franchise Tag on a safety....what are the chances they do it again?
Consider the fact that Boldin and Dawson may indeed be re-signed to multi-year deals, and T.Brown/Carlos are released...there will be room to either re-sign Whitner or at least tag him for 2014. What's the Tag Amount for a Strong Safety this year?
bout 7 mil
Jesus. 7 mil for a SS??
Yeah, that's pretty steep.. Hopefully he'll accept something around 5 mil per over 4 years. If not, I'm not so sure he's worth more than 5.5
The problem is, if he goes and Brown goes AND Carlos is released, we literally have no veteran leadership in the secondary. That's scary. Reid is mature and in his second year, but I think it's asking too much of him to be a full-time leader while he's still developing. Brock is a quiet guy who's fairly young. Cully isn't a leader.
Free Agents I like: Mike Mitchell, Carolina...... Major Wright, Chicago
Rookies I like: Deon Buchanon, Washington....Calvin Pryor, Louisville.
