There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of the NFL salary cap. That's due to the unpredictability of the upcoming season, and the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on it.

Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that.
