Anyways, I don't know about you but I am thinking we are moving towards a youth movement. Just looking at the roster the only guys over 30 are Sopoaga, Rogers, Smith, Goodwin and Jennings. Everybody else is a free agent and will be gone. After this season I really only see Justin and possibly Jennings around. I think we are saving money for the 10-11 draft class... Kap, Aldon, Iupati, Davis, Miller, possibly Hunter. Doubt we can keep all of them still but those guys are the future. Side note even the guys that are around 30 after next year like Haralson and Gore could be gone. I almost think we are leaning more towards building and reloading for a 5+ year playoff run then we are of say a 1 year SB run. If we would have tagged Goldson and got say Revis that would say we are all in. To me we are still in for the super bowl but we are more so going along the lines of 5 chances instead of 1 or 2.
Edit: About Brown he is really a solid CB; would be 29 by the start of the 2014 season if we chose to re-sign him after his contract is up this year. I have no idea what he will want but if it's reasonable I would give him up to say a 3, maybe 4 year deal. With Rogers and him possibly gone I am sure we will be drafting CBs this year and next. Cox is only signed through this year as well. Could mean we could lose all 3 after this year.
And if we get into next year's free agents Whitner and Goodwin are probably gone. Justin Smith is #1 (tag him at worst)... Brown I'd like back on a reasonable 3-4 year deal like I said, Cox for 1 mil or so... Tukuafu I am not worried about. Manningham I don't know if he could stay healthy and is worth a deal more than a few years. I'd rather put the money towards the 14 guys. Then we could cut Rogers and we should have a reasonable amount to sign guys like Iupati, Davis, Kap, Miller... maybe Hunter. One will probably get tagged.
I've been meaning to add free agents section.
I think it will be tough to keep everyone also. We need to build through the draft and keep our own, try and keep the OL together. Joe Staley will have high 2015-2017 salaries, might ask him to restructure his deal to free up cap room.
Guys like Justin, Jennings and Gore might stick around a few years past there deals. Those 3 are guys I would keep, even Gore can be a good RB in a RB by Committee.
Aldon, Kap, Miller, Hunter, and Cully from 2011 are priorities. Probably Kap first since Aldon has a 5th year option for 2015
Davis, Iupati and Crabs are key for the 2014 free agents, along with Kap, Hunter, Miller and Cully. Maybe Kilgore depended on how he develops.
At some point we will need to do an extension with Willis and Vernon, lower base salaries, and sign through say 2019. Also the TV deal should impact 2015 or 2016 starting then. We could see a $128M cap IMO in 2014, which would give us $39M for 2014 to spend before 2013 signings. Plus Carlos will probably be cut.
Edit: About Brown, I hope something this season, he had a $2m escalator, so extend him and lower base salary, same with Justin, if not franchise him to be safe.
2015 tag would be for Kap obviously. Probably 17M then.
