Rumor Mill: Jennings’ days as a Niner are over

Nov 6, 2007 at 3:48 PM--


According to ProFootballTalk's Rumor Mill, takle Jonas Jennings' days with the 49ers may be over.

From ProFootballTalk:
Though many league insiders and observers are skeptical about whether 49ers left tackle Jonas Jennings was placed on injured reserve because he actually has an injury that prevents him from playing or because the team decided he was a pain in the butt and didn't want to give him the freedom that he likely craves, a league source tells us that Jennings is legitimately injured -- but that Jennings' days with the team are over.

From ProFootballTalk:
Because the 2006 Collective Bargaining Agreement removed the right of NFL teams to send players home with pay, the Niners' only ability to rid themselves of Jennings for the rest of the year without cutting him was to put him on IR. Though we presume that Jennings could challenge the injured reserve designation, he likely is content to get the balance of his 2007 base salary of $3.65 million and then hit the market again in 2008.

Signed through 2011, Jennings is due to make base salaries of $3.45 million, $4.2 million, $4.3 million, and $5.15 million over the next four seasons. In theory, he could be traded. But he likely would want more money from a new team, which could prevent a deal from getting done.

Jauan Jennings is poised to become a restricted free agent, offering the San Francisco 49ers various avenues to retain the talented wide receiver. One such option involves signing Jennings to a long-term contract, a possibility that general manager John Lynch openly acknowledged as a possibility while speaking to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. If that doesn't happen, the 49ers can tender Jennings, giving the team the right to match any more lucrative offers from other teams. Alternatively, they could attach the tendered offer to a draft pick, a costlier approach when it comes to guaranteed salary, but one that would force interested teams to surrender compensation if the 49ers opt not to match competing offers. All of those options
