I'm not sure why you believe that considering the fact that he was on record as saying on a number of occasions that a deal friendly to the team so that they could keep more players was exactly what he wanted.
But, as far as what Marvin was trying to do with this thread is concerned, the Kaepernick deal plays a huge part. It doesn't guarantee that they'll be able to retain Crabtree, for example, but it gives them a better chance. And, the example he sets has to make it easier for the team to negotiate with other players. Obviously Boone is going to get a good deal, but after all the guaranteed money Vernon Davis has ALREADY taken, is he really going to hold out? Kaepernick's deal is going to make anyone who holds out for unreasonable amounts of guaranteed money look smaller in the process.
