Look i understand it maybe a good football team move but i'd hope we would'nt sign either one...We need to get younger N look at all tha free agentz we have coming up that will want bigg money. ..Plan N simple I don't want our 49erz turning into tha Ravenz or cowgirlz in cap h*ll N nothing but overpaid vet'z...
We will almost certainly restructure Gore's deal or he is a goner after next season for sure. RayMac and Justin Smith will be done after 2015 I think. Rogers will be surely gone as well.
This will free up a lot of cap space. No need to panic, neither short- nor mid-term, imo.
Yeah Tad, don't worry so much. The cap should go up each year now. Either 7% or $7M ish a year raise.
Without knowing the for sure 2014 cap limit, I can't speak on 2015, It should be a 7% raise from 2014's cap limit. Aldon will have his option picked up soon. That should be $9M or so. Rogers is cut, that gains 9M. I had us at $29M under for 2015, but thats with a $126M cap. So that's gonna change big time, since the cap won't be that low. That was a projection I got from a source.
This offseason we should be able to lock up Kap, Boldin, Whitner, Dawson, Wilhoite, Osgood, and Miller(Possibly also Culliver if we want to).
2015 offseason, the biggest names are, Kap(if not extended before), Hunter(Not a huge one, since Lattimore has more potential), Miller(If not locked up before), Crabs(Probably tagged, hoping extended in season, or offseason), Dorsey, Skuta, Spillman all should be back in 2015.
If you go a year after that, the biggest FA would be Vernon and Aldon, and McDonald. Justin will likely retire by then. Gore will be retired by then I hope, I dont want to see him rot away somewhere else.
I am hoping Vernon, Willis, and maybe McDonald get extended this offseason. I always wondered why we didn't extend them when they redid their deals the past 2 seasons, when Bowman was extended, and when Willis redid his deal for cap space in April 2013.
Gore isn't really an extension so much, as it would be cap relief, if not, he plays out his $6.45M deal, and becomes a FA. He has slown down, so I hope if he is back, it's reasonable 1yr deals.
