    June 6th, 2014 UPDATE: Some new news has come to me. Kaepernick actually has $2 million escalators, for the same requirements, 80% play time, and either 1st or 2nd team All Pro or reach Super Bowl, and those come to him automatically in each year. So his base salaries are actually $2 million less each year. So it appears ProFootballTalk was wrong. As everyone knows by now, the 49ers were able to strike a new 6-year deal, worth up to $126 million with quarterback Colin Kaepernick this week. I have the details and the outlook for future years below. Kaepernick received a $12.328 million signing bonus, which prorates at $2,465,600 over 5 years. 2014-2018 to be exact. He also has the following base salaries: $645,000 in 2014, $10.4...

    Right now the 49ers have around $3.9 million in salary cap space after the signings of Kassim Osgood, Perrish Cox, and the extension for Bruce Miller. But I want to look at what the 49ers could have going forward once september rolls around. I have 42 players as being locked in, now some could debate these, but for me, these guys seem like locks right now. For those 42, which I will list below, they make up $113,155,320 in salary cap room. # Name Pos. Signed 2014 Cap Number 76 Davis, Anthony RT 2019 $7,532,266 85 Davis,...

    I wanted to take a look toward the future, to be more precise, 2014 offseason, and what we have to deal with. I will provide numbers for each player under contract, and what potential cuts could mean cap wise. For the moment, after the 53 man cuts, and new roster moves, the 49ers have 49 players signed for 2014, at $115,144,923 to be exact, with a dead money hit of just $1,898,431. Now that may seem like not "Only", but compared to some teams, who carry around in the double digit money in dead money, namely $50 million for Oakland in 2013. A little chunk of under $2 million is nothing. What lies in the problem is the current flat cap, and salaries. Which are now below. CB Carlos Rogers, $8,094,531 RT Anthony Davis , $7,532,266 OLB Ahmad Brooks, $7.5...

    There's a lot of chatter around 49ers sites on whether to keep, what seems to most, a bust, in 2012 1st-round pick, WR A.J. Jenkins. The problem is his cap hit would cripple the 49ers salary cap. The only way to get rid of salary in a positive way, is to trade him. But who will take on his salary, which includes guaranteed base salaries of $705,797 in 2013, and $1,021,594 in 2014, plus non-guaranteed base salary of $660,000 in 2015, and a $677,309 roster bonus due on the 5th day of the 2015 new league year. He also has money left in proration. $872,500 for 2013-2015, total of $2,617,500. If cut right now, the team takes a cap hit of $2,599,891 for just 2013, that seems fine, since we have just over $7.2 million in cap space by my...

    With the recent coming out party by Colin Kaepernick, I want to take a look at the potential for an extension for Kaepernick, which he will be eligible for after the 2013 season ends. It's obvious that the play and style that Kaepernick brings has taken the whole NFL by storm, but is he ready for an elite contract? That's the question. Coming out of Nevada, Kaepernick is entering his 3rd season in the NFL and is just getting into his prime. It seems he has taken the NFL by storm with the pistol offense that he runs with smoothness. He isn't just a running quarterback, but also a effective passing quarterback. Obviously Kaepernick's agents are likely looking at recent deals given out to Joe Flacco and Tony Romo. Flacco and Romo both got over $20 million in a...

    With the 2013 NFL offseason under way and signings happening as we speak, I want to take a look into the future about 2 offseasons from now, when the 49ers have some work to do. In the 2015 offseason, the 49ers have key free agents that they need to decide on, most notably, Colin Kaepernick, Aldon Smith, Anthony Davis, Mike Iupati, Michael Crabtree, and Chris Culliver. Some can be extended now, but players like Kaepernick, Smith, Culliver, and 2011 draft picks like Daniel Kilgore, Kendall Hunter and Bruce Miller must wait until after 2013, per the new CBA agreement. On top of all those free agents, the 49ers will need to also worry about 4 others. 2 are long time 49ers, Brian Jennings and Frank Gore, along with newest 49ers, Glenn Dorsey and Dan Skuta. Jennings...

    With the recent news of the imminent trade of Alex Smith to Kansas City, the 49ers will now only need to make 1 or 2 moves to get under the cap, which is expected to be at least $123 million. The 49ers will save $9.75 million by executing this deal before March 14th at 4 PM eastern, when Smith is scheduled to receive a $1 million roster bonus. Plus, the 49ers will be off the hook for a $1 million incentive and a $250,000 workout bonus. Now the 49ers can either stand pat and redo a deal or 2, or cut a vet or 2. Namely Parys Haralson ($2.87 million saved), Jonathan Goodwin ($4.35 million saved) and David Akers ($3.05 million saved). I would add Donte Whitner, but with no option to replace him on the team and the fact that Dashon Goldson isn't signed for 2013, I...

    Currently the 49ers have 55 players signed for the 2013 season, and their top 51 position is at $124,342,316, and that includes $406,491 in dead money. I will take a look at the current salaries, and what we could do salary cap wise. Current salaries are below. QB Alex Smith - $9.75 million TE Vernon Davis - $8,739,916 DE Justin Smith - $8 million CB Carlos Rogers - $7,344,531 RB Frank Gore - $6.45 million WR Michael Crabtree - $5.859 million OLB Ahmad Brooks - $5.05 million C Jonathan Goodwin - $5,016,667 WR Mario Manningham - $4.95 million SS Donte Whitner - $4,933,333 P Andy Lee - $4.05 million OLB Aldon Smith - $3,922,909 CB Tarell Brown - $3,907,312 PK David Akers -...

    With the 2010 draft just a mere 5 days away, there is a lot of talk about the 49ers drafting a running back, especially in the 1st-round. Now, I am all for drafting one guy in particular, and that man is Clemson's do all athlete C.J. Spiller. The dynamic Spiller, had a career best 1212 yards rushing in 2009, and a career high 503 yards receiving. Now there is talks about other running backs. Namely the likes of Cal's Jahvid Best, Fresno State's Ryan Mathews and Georgia Tech's Jonathan Dwyer. I don't think or believe RB is a huge need at this point. My reasoning behind this, is we have Glen Coffee, who is a hard nosed runner, and then Michael Robinson. Now robinson is not beloved by most, but he is also a do it all player. He plays...
