Can we create more cap room anywhere?

Can Gore take a cut? Can we hack and slash anywhere else to save a few bucks?
Care to chime in AB???
Its time for Gore to take a pay cut so we can sign the missing puzzles to our super bowl championship.. i know he is a 49ers legend, but business is business.. this may be his last year in a 49ers uniform..

A few ways to create more cap room:

- Restructure Frank Gore, save a couple million.
- Extend Vernon Davis and/or Glenn Dorsey, save quite a few million.
- Cut veteran backups (Ventrone, Spillman, Snyder, and/or Skuta) to save a few million.
Dump Gore. and LMJ, Do away with the nightmare 2012 Draft except keep Looney.
Have fun

Good joke.
Restructure Gabbert, possibly Gore. Extend others
Yes, and they'll figure it out.

Skuta was ranked as ranked 15th out of the 42 OLB that played at least 25% of the snaps. (from PFF)
And he has played ILB in the past. He could help cover the loss of Bowman at the start of the season.

Spillman and Ventrone were 2nd and 3rd on the team in special team tackles.

edit: Skuta was tied for 5th in special team tackles.

And our ST was bad in 2012, those guys were huge for us last season, need to stay good in those areas. We can create cap space many ways, we'll restructure with Gabbert and get a million or so, maybe guys like Dorsey, Ray Mac, Brooks, VD, Gore and many other vets could be extended and lower their cap #'s this year. If we truly want to sign one of these FAs we're looking at and need the room we'll make it happen. I'm sure a lot of this stuff is already in the works since we need more room than we currently have just to sign our draft picks.

Maybe they can find it in the couch cushions.
