Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag:
Robbie Gould

Pre/Post-June 1st Information:
Pre-June 1 Cut - Basically means the team takes on the remainder of any prorated money (signing bonus, option bonus, base salary), and is counted as dead money in 1 year. Player becomes a Free Agent right away; example being Richard Sherman last offseason.

Post-June 1 Cut - Basically means you spread the dead money over 2 seasons, so say the player has $6M in bonus prorations left, and has 3 years left, the dead money wouldn't be even, it would be $2M year 1, and $4M year 2, player also becomes a free agent right away.

Options - Like with Pierre Garcon, and Earl Mitchell have to be picked up or declined before the beginning of the new league year. If declined, it's treated as a Pre-June 1 cut for dead money, hence the $7.2M dead money for Garcon, the player becomes a free agent right away after the option is officially declined.

Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag - The team that uses this has the right of first refusal, and, if they choose not to match the offer sheet, they receive two first-round draft picks.

Post-June 1 Potential Cuts: --- Courtesy of AB81Rules
Pierre Garcon $5.88M - Released Pre-June
Garry Gilliam $5.05M - Released Pre-June
Cassius Marsh $4.2M
Malcolm Smith $4.05M
Earl Mitchell $3.7M - Released Pre-June

53 Man Roster Projection Rules: --- AB81Rules
--- Injured reserve players must first make the initial 53 to be placed on I.R. to be eligible to return after week 8
--- Only 2 players can be placed with the "designated to return" label per year
--- Players who never came off the PUP list through TC (W.Richburg, G.Celek) will not count against your 53
--- Vested veterans (S.Coleman, J.McKinnon, T.Taylor) must be cut at the 53, clear waivers, and be resigned the next day

Practice Squad Eligibiilty Definition: --- AB81Rules
The standard eligibility for a player to be added to the practice squad is he is a free agent and has not accrued two years of NFL service. A player can only be on a practice squad for three seasons total in his career (six weeks on a practice squad in a season counts as a season for these purposes).

The league does allow for exceptions to the less than two-year rule, which was expanded with the 10-player rule. Teams may keep up to four players on their practice squad who have accrued two seasons of NFL experience, which allows a fringe player the chance to stay with the team, even if he already has been in the league, while also allowing the teams to keep more veteran players.

Accrued seasons are earned by being on the active (53-man) roster for a team for six games in a single regular season.

2019 Salary Cap Outlook: --- AB81Rules OverTheCap
The 49ers have ($524,401) [8/22/2019 - 5th Least] in cap space for 2020. With an expected 2020 estimate rise to $198-$200M with $25M-rollover, we can expect to have $24.71M.

NFL Salary Cap Increase by Year:
2014: $133M
2015: $143.28M
2016: $155.27M
2017: $167M
2018: $177.2M
2019: $188.2M

Salary Cap Notes:
RT Shon Coleman - his contract escalated to $2M, now counts $2.02M against the cap; this is due to the PPE (Proven Performance Escalator) clause, even though he played zero snaps with us, he qualified by playing 35% or more with the Browns in both years.
RG Mike Person - Resigned to a 3 year, $8.25M deal. $1M GTD roster bonus due on March 17th, $250K per game roster bonuses, $50K workout bonuses, $250K 2020 Injury GTD, but that can be reduced by the amount of games he is active in 2019, and his 2020 roster bonus is for 14 games, and not 16 games. Cap numbers are, $2.75M, $2.5M & $3M
LEO Dee Ford - Per Tom Pelissero. It is essentially year-to-year starting with $20.5M for 2019. Contract base value: $85M. Max value: $87.5M. 2019: $20.5M with $19.75M guaranteed next week; 2019 earnings made up of $4.75M base salary, $8M signing bonus, and $7.75M roster bonus. 2020: $14.5M; 2021: $16M; 2022: $17M & 2023: $17M. Ford would've been due ~$15.4M on franchise tag, so he gets a roughly $5M raise in 2019. If it doesn't work out, they cut Ford after 2019 and carry $6.4M in dead money. If it does, they have a cost-controlled rusher for $14.5M in 2020, $16M in 2021, $17M in 2022, $17M in 2023
WILL Kwon Alexander - The deal, essentially, reads as a year-to-year agreement that allows the 49ers to cut bait or restructure the contract after any of the next three seasons. First, his base salary in 2019 is just $1.75M, but he receives $9.5M in guaranteed bonuses plus per-game roster bonuses that make his salary-cap hit just north of $11.5M. The only true guaranteed money beyond 2019 is the $3M remaining of his $4M signing bonus. Alexander is expected to earn $14.25M in the first year
RB Tevin Coleman - 2 yr, $8.5M deal can be 1 yr, $3.6M
LEO Dee Ford - 5 yr, $85.5M deal can be 1 yr, $21M
LS Kyle Nelson - 4 yr $4.54M deal can be 1 yr, $1.3M
ST/MIKE David Mayo - $1.1M fully GTD, which includes his $850K base, and a $250K GTD roster bonus
SAM Mark Nzeocha - $1.1m, $1.35m, $1.45m bases, $500k gtd rb, $100k per game rbs in 2020 & 2021, $50k workout bonuses each year, 2021 is an option year, $500k NLTBE for play time, $500k escalators 20-21 for making pro bowl
WR Jordan Matthews - $1M base, $300k sb, $500k per game
RB Raheem Mostert - base salaries are $1.4M, $2.575M, and $2.875M, that's a total of $6.85M, and if the base value is truly $8.7M, it leaves $1.85M unaccounted for.

Rookie Cap Pool (7 player draft): $11,278,709
Adam Schefter: CA state tax = 13.3% / NY = 8.82% / WA, TX, TN, FL = 0%. Therefore, $10 million guaranteed in Seattle needs to be $11.33 million guaranteed in SF

2018 Free Agency Spendings - $87.8M
Jimmy Garoppolo $37,000,000
Weston Richburg $9,260,000
Jimmie Ward $8,526,000

5-Year Injury Analysis

2018 (18) --- 2017 (26) --- 2016 (22) --- 2015 (17) --- 2014 (21)

------------------------------------------------------------

2019 Team Needs/Top Targets: (Draft & Free Agency)
Team Needs: LEO, SAM/ER, CB, WR, RG, WILL, FS, LT, C, TE2
LEO - With new DL coach, Kris Kocurek, expect a ton of wide-9 looks. For that, you need explosion and speed at the snap and the ability to rush on the move (slippery) and in space (speed to power). These small be slighter of framed Edge Rushers (ER). Think Brian Burns or Jachai Polite; players that look like they are shot out of a cannon.
SAM/ER - With Mark Nzeocha in at SAM and Solomon Thomas at LEO, any good OC will automatically know that we're in base defense (run defenders). Getting an every-down SAM who has equal skills against the run, pass and pass rush is more important than fans realize. A guy like Josh Allen is ideal here.
CB - We were the worst coverage unit last year by a country mile even with Sherman having a strong effect on his side of the field. Joe Woods was brought in to help develop our young secondary and add more two-back safeties and diversity to the scheme. He may not be looking for a 6'3" 200 pound CB with 33" arms.
WR - This deep badly needs a true ZWR who does all the dirty work so the X and slot and TE's can have fun. Typically this is a bigger-bodied WR who's used to playing in contested fashion. In addition, we could use a big upgrade at the slot esp. if Trent Taylor is still reeling from his back injury. In addition, it's not wise to count on Goodwin with all his health issues. Speed is crucial to this offense. We need upgrades everywhere here and the first 3 games with JG last year proved how poor this group is with their inability to get open esp. against man coverage.
RG - This OL gave up 116 QB two years ago and trumped that this year with a 125. Insane and remarkably overlooked by fans and coaches alike. The one-year bandaid plan is not working. In addition, Tomlinson has had zero competition and he's as average as it gets.
WILL - Smith should be gone and Lee played better in his absence. But he's probably not seen as the long-term solution. I think this FO would love another 'healthy' Foster-like player next to Warner for the next 4 years. It's a very important position to this defense both in coverage and run defense and even more so if we're going to employ more wide-9 fronts (wider holes to fill).
FS - Who knows what we have here while AC returns from injury. With Joe Woods on board, expect to see more tradition two-deep safety looks which is great for Tartt/Harris but this defense will still need a true single-high FS with amazing range and instincts. That's not easy to find.
LT - If Staley ever goes down, we're royally screwed. In addition, you want a LT-in-training this year to help transition for his departure.
C - Like with Tomlinson, Richburg has zero competition and we have zero quality depth. Richburg played through a knee and quad injury that now requires surgery.
TE2 - If the FO is unable to acquire a ZWR, a TE2 might be another great weapon for Kyle to use to throw a wrench into a DC's game plan. This is a deep and talented year for TE's in the draft.

2019 NFL Draft - Top 49ers Draft Targets:
Draft Strengths: ER, WR, TE, DL, OL
Draft Weaknesses: QB, CB, LB, S
@ #2 or small trade-back
1. Nick Bosa, LEO
2. Quinnen Williams, NT
3. Josh Allen, SAM
4. Brian Burns, LEO
5. Greedy Williams CB

Shanahan Draft Tendencies per The Athletic / WZ Member Synopsis:

Trend #1: He rarely drafts Offensive players in RD 1
- Over 10 seasons Shanny's teams have drafted 4 offensive players in the first round and only at 2 different positions (OT: Brown and Williams) and QB (RGIII and Manziel)
- We are set at both of those positions with the acquisition of RT Mike McGlinchey, Joe Staley and Jimmy Garoppolo

Trend #2: He NEVER drafted RB or TE before RD 3
- Only one offensive player ever picked in RD 2 (i.e. Dante Pettis)
- Joel Bitonio in 2014 (Browns) is the only time he's selected an O player in the 2nd round
- Generally finds his offensive talent later in the draft (i.e. George Kittle)

Trend #3: He does draft Offense in RD 3:
- Nine (9) offensive players taken in this round over the last ten (10) drafts
- Finds undervalued players here, it is his sweet spot (notable names: Slaton, Reed, West, Coleman, Hooper)
- Looks for players who are better on tape than their combine measurables
- Very good hit rate here

Tight Ends: The last three TEs drafted by Shanny (Reed, Hooper and Kittle) have all run 40's faster than 4.75 (combine average for TEs), he values athleticism (pSPARQ), route running and catching over pass blocking.

Wide Receivers: Shanny has lacked recent success here as most of his best WRs were already drafted (Julio) or through FA (Garcon). Dante Pettis looks like he can be solid at least.

NCommand's Offseason Free Agency/Draft Retooling Plan:

Notes:
  • Jimmy Garoppolo will only count $20M this year.
  • Do not resign DeForest Buckner. He's only counting $5.79M in 2019 and then we can exercise his 5th-year option ($10M) and then Franchise Tag him cheap ($14-$16M) since he plays on the interior. No rush.
  • Solomon Thomas adds around 5-10 pounds and gets back to training inside at 3T/1T to pair with DeForest Buckner at 1T/3T per the recommendations of the new DL coach, Kris Kocurek. Article on the 6'8" Margus Hunt who moved over to Nose Tackle in 2018
  • Last year, the FO paid out $87.8M which included extending our own and signing free agents. This total also included $37M to Jimmy Garoppolo.
  • Excellent Podcast - Jason_OTC covers our historic and current team-building philosophy under both the Baalke and ShanaLynch regimes (Paraag tenure) using league-wide metrics/tools with an unbiased take (Jets fan/friends with Paraag) spanning over the old and new CBA. This will help guide you in your own targets for free agency and help set up more realistic expectations.

2019 Salary Cap: We're projected to have $72M(including the $35M rollover) before a max of potential post-June cuts which equates 'up' to a max of $42M.

2019 Total Max Cap: $114M

Original Targets:
ZWR Quincy Enunwa - Resigned with the Jets
RG Mark Glowinski - Resigned with the Colts

Free Agency: OverTheCap was used as a reference
LEO Trey Flowers 25 NE 89.7 #6 ER $17M APY - Sticking with the Pat's connections, Trey can play strongside or weakside. ShanaLynch finally make a splash for an ER and now have Trey Flowers, Brian Burns, Preston Smith & Ronald Blair who can edge rush effectively.
FS Adrian Amos 26 CHI 82.7 #8 S $12M APY - Great young proven S.
SAM/ER Preston Smith 26 WAS 76.9 #20 ED $9M APY - A real 6'5" 265 4.71 SAM who can cover some (Fred Warner 4.64), play through the strong side and provide actual edge rush in nickel who rarely has to come off the field.
WILL Jordan Hicks 26 PHI 75.6 #14 LB $7M APY - Veteran MIKE who moves to space at WILL to pair with Fred Warner and Preston Smith. Will learn both MIKE/WILL spots. 4.68 speed with excellent coverage range.
BE Arik Armstead 25 SF 74.8 #28 ED $6M APY - AA is resigned to a 4-year $24M deal; down from $9.5M for 2019 alone on a 5th-year option.
LCB Rashaan Melvin 29 OAK 60.5 #93 CB $4M APY - Veteran CB depth who fits our prototype to compete with Witherspoon and Moore.
RG Mike Person 30 SF 67.2 #18 G $4M APY - Reward our own and help groom a young RG/RT. He adds excellent competition and depth at C and G.
XWR John Brown 29 BLT 66.1 #68 $4M APY - Kyle finds some speed depth behind Goodwin who can also play the slot.
ZWR Kevin White 27 CHI 62.0 #N/A WR $2M APY - If anyone can get the most out of him, it's Kyle/JG.
Special Teams - PK Robbie Gould ($3.5M APY); RB Raheem Mostert ($1.8M RFA); WILL Elijah Lee ($645K ERFA) & SAM Mark Nzeocha ($800K APY) - Reward our own.

2018 Cap Spend - $87.8M
2019 Cap Spend - $71.5M
2019 Rookie Pool (7 picks) - $8.5M

The '49er Way' Free Agency/Draft Retooling Plan:

Notes:
  • Last year, the FO paid out $87.8M which included 6 in-house moves and signing 7 outside free agents. This total included an inflated $37M to Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo's year-1 contract is obviously an outlier and is only counting $20M this year.
  • The FO typically likes to roll over roughly $25M-35M annually. Looking at the FO's history here, $50-$60M seems to be their striking distance in free agency.
  • Jason_OTC covered additional trends and tendencies and that aligns with a perpetual "mid-tier approach to free agency." They will spend money but not always on the best players (bad contracts; contracts on oft-injured risky players; sign too early before proven or older higher paid players for low production) and they certainly won't go all-in for premier players at premium positions. They'll overpay to secure players from cheaper positions (i.e. FB, RB, C or LB vs. ER, WR, T or CB). Another tactic they'll use is paying outrageous $ for 5th year options (Ward & AA) and extend players (Staley) so the grand total of free agency spending looks much bigger than it really is for quality on-field production. They love to sign their own early as well (e.g. expect Buckner this or next year).
  • The biggest trend over the Paraag regime is the $10M cutoff. No free agent, outside QB, will make more than their own in-house top paid player and that has always been Joe Staley at around $10M.
  • ShanaLynch were asked what their biggest regret was this year and they both admitted to 1) relying too much on Jimmy Garoppolo to mask so many weaknesses and 2) not adding enough competition (e.g. presumed starters didn't feel much pressure to lose their jobs and got complacent).
  • I have a pretty realistic spend of $69.5M free agency plan this year but let's stay in the FO's ballpark model of $50-$60M using these FO tendencies and see what we can come up with. Feel free to do your own during this dead time.

2019 Draft:
1/2 SAM/ER Josh Allen - 6'5" 240; there were very serious discussions on IDL Quinnen Williams and there were no great trade-back partners
2/36 RG Garrett Bradbury - 6'3" 300; Unwilling to pay for Mike Person, a large hole opens up here
3/67 CB Amani Oruwariye - 6'1" 204; This is where we take CB's
4/97 TE Mitchell Wilcox - 6'5" 245; TE2 and another OW
6/162 LT Colton Jackson - 6'5" 298; Outside zone T who even wears #74 and will develop for a year
6/192 P Jake Bailey - 6'2" 203; We opt not to pay Bradley Pinion

Free Agency:
RCB Jason McCourty 31 NE 83.1 #6 CB $12M APY - The FO is tired of being dead last as a coverage unit by a country mile and makes another move, who like Sherman, can help develop the youngsters while giving way to them in a couple years while in the interim, giving them high quality play. pSPARQ player with a 4.3 40-time. 5'10" but 32" long arms with a 36.5" vertical jump. This deal will look a lot like Sherman's deal (i.e. $13M APY = < $10M APY).
LEO Ezekiel Ansah 30 DET 74.5 #N/A ED $11M APY - Was there any doubt this was their guy with Mayhew/Kocurek on board? They tried to get him last year too.
WILL/MIKE Cory Littleton 25 LAR 66.6 #37 LB $7M APY - It's time to lock down a young proven player next to Warner for the next 4 years and it's always nice to steal from a rival.
BE Arik Armstead 25 SF 74.8 #28 ED $6M APY - AA is resigned to a 4-year $24M deal; down from $9M for 2019 alone on a 5th-year option.
FS Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix 26 WAS 79.3 #17 S $6M APY - Naturally, we couldn't land the top FS on the market but Ha-Ha should get the last laugh and will pair with a recently-extended, Tartt at SS. The good news is we'll be playing with more 2-deep safeties with the hiring of Woods and that should play more to the strengths of all the safeties.
XWR John Brown 29 BAL 66.1 #70 WR $4M APY - Anyone else want to count on Goodwin? Kyle agrees. Speed is critical to this offense. With Goodwin and Brown on the field at the same time, Kyle gets a
RG Andy Levitre 33 ATL 61.2 #N/A G $3M APY - The FO didn't want to give Person an extra $1M to start so we go with the old veteran and a high draft pick starter plus Garnett for additional insurance.
ZWR Kevin White 27 CHI 62.0 #N/A WR $2M APY - If anyone can get the most out of him, it's Kyle/JG.
Special Teams - PK Robbie Gould ($3.5M APY); RB Raheem Mostert ($1.8M RFA); WILL Elijah Lee ($645K ERFA) & SAM Mark Nzeocha ($800K APY) - Reward our own.

2018 Cap Spend - $87.8M
2019 Cap Spend - $57.7M

The 49ers have $37.1M cap space in 2018 with a $177.2M confirmed cap. With that, we're expecting to rollover of just over $35M for a total of $72.1M for 2019, before cuts like Watson, Mitchell, Garcon, and Marsh.

Rookie Cap Pool: $11,278,709
Note: Schefter Twitter: CA state tax = 13.3% / NY = 8.82% / WA, TX, TN, FL = 0%. Therefore, $10 million guaranteed in Seattle needs to be $11.33 million guaranteed in SF.

2019 Team Needs/Top Targets: (Draft & Free Agency)
Draft Strengths: ER, WR, TE, DL, OL
Draft Weaknesses: QB, CB, LB, S

DEFENSE - Top Draft Targets:
@ #2 or small trade-back
1 Nick Bosa, LEO
2 Quinnen Williams
3 Josh Allen, SAM
4 Brian Burns, LEO
5 Greedy Williams CB

Shanahan Draft Tendencies per The Athletic / WZ Member synopsis

Trend #1: He rarely drafts Offensive players in RD 1
- Over 10 seasons Shanny's teams have drafted 4 offensive players in the first round and only at 2 different positions (OT: Brown and Williams) and QB (RGIII and Manziel)
- We are set at both of those positions

Trend #2: He NEVER drafted RB or TE before RD 3
- Only one offensive player ever picked in RD 2
- Joel Bitonio in 2014 (Browns) is the only time he's selected an O player in the 2nd round
- Generally finds his offensive talent later in the draft

Trend #3: He does draft Offense in RD 3:
- Nine (9) offensive players taken in this round over the last ten (10) drafts
- Finds undervalued players here, it is his sweet spot (notable names: Slaton, Reed, West, Coleman, Hooper)
- Looks for players who are better on tape than their combine measurables
- Very good hit rate here, Niners have picks 70 & 74 here

Tight Ends: The last three TEs drafted by Shanny (Reed, Hooper and Kittle) have all run 40's faster than 4.75 (combine average for TEs), he values athleticism, route running and catching over pass blocking.

Wide Receivers: Shanny has lacked recent success here, most of his best WRs were already drafted (Julio) or through FA (Garcon)

Free Agency/Draft Retooling Plan:

Notes:
Jimmy Garoppolo will only count $20M this year.Do not resign DeForest Buckner. He's only counting $5.79M in 2019 and then we can exercise his 5th year option ($10M) and then Franchise Tag him cheap ($14-$16M) since he plays on the interior. No rush.Solomon Thomas adds around 5-10 pounds and gets back to training inside at 3T/1T to pair with DeForest Buckner at 1T/3T.Last year, the FO paid out $87.8M which included extending our own and signing free agents. This total also included $37M to Jimmy Garoppolo.

2018 Free Agency Spendings:
Jimmy Garoppolo $37,000,000
Weston Richburg $9,260,000
Jimmie Ward $8,526,000

2019 Total Cap: $104M

Free Agency: OverTheCap was used for free agency $ projections.
LEO Trey Flowers 25 NE 89.7 #6 ER $17M APY - Sticking with the Pat's connections, Trey can play strong or weakside. ShanaLynch finally make a splash for an ER and now have Trey Flowers, Brian Burns, Preston Smith & Ronald Blair who can edge rush effectively.
FS Earl Thomas 30 SEA 91.3 #3 S $12M APY - No brainer.
SAM/ER Preston Smith 26 WAS 76.9 #20 ED $9M APY - A real 6'5" 265 4.71 SAM who can cover some (Fred Warner 4.64), play through the strong side and provide actual edge rush who rarely has to come off the field.
WILL Jordan Hicks 26 PHI 75.6 #14 LB $7M APY - Veteran MIKE who moves to space at WILL to pair with Fred Warner and Preston Smith. Will learn both spots. 4.68 speed with coverage range.
BE Arik Armstead 25 SF 74.8 #28 ED $6M APY - AA is resigned to a 4-year $24M deal; down from $9M for 2019 alone.
LCB Rashaan Melvin 29 OAK 60.5 #93 CB $4M APY - Veteran CB depth who fits our prototype to compete with Witherspoon and Moore.
RG Mike Person 30 SF 67.2 #18 G $4M APY - Reward our own and help groom a young RG/RT. He adds excellent competition and depth at C and G.
XWR John Brown 29 BLT 66.1 #68 $4M APY - Kyle finds some speed depth behind Goodwin who can also play the slot.
Special Teams - PK Robbie Gould ($3.5M APY); P Bradley Pinion ($2.5M APY); RB Raheem Mostert ($1.2M APY); WILL Elijah Lee ($1M APY) & SAM Mark Nzeocha ($800K APY) - Reward our own.

Love the plan. Personally I am not sure I think they'll spend money on the SAM position and Leo. But I would be happy if they did. Also personally I'd like za'darius over flowers. Also, I'd like to give trent taylor another shot in the offseason to compete for his job back, to see if he can comeback from that injury.

Nice...feel free to post your own off season plan; this is the thread for it.

This is my ideal but I'll do a more ShanaLynch kind later.

Wow. Very strong work. Well done.
Two questions (sorry if I missed it the body of the post):
1) Is Jimmy Ward still on this team in 2019? Please say he's not.
2) What else did we get from Jacksonville in the hypothetical trade?
Thanks
Talent. They need talent.

1) I'd say highly unlikely BUT Saleh really likes him so who knows.
2) 1,100 points to move up. That would probably be their first next year and a mid round pick this year.

Agreed with Ratto, well done NC, also we're projected to get a 6th rd Comp Pick for losing Aaron Lynch.

Outstanding job. Great contribution to the forum.

Now go take a nap. You deserve it.

Wow...great work, NC...and a lot of work it was.
I have a question the Zoners out there. What players do you keep from last year's roster?.... NC...you have answered the question with your work here. I'm curious to hear about the general consensus. Other than perhaps 2-3 players, we are on the same page, NC.
I think the Niners have some very tough decisions to make this off-season. Also, with only 6 draft picks max, they are under the gun in that regard. They have had a lot of success with UDFAs but in my opinion, they need to acquire another pick or two or three and the only capital they have is players on their roster. I think they will certainly try to make a couple of trades before this draft, and I think a guy like Armstead might be a guy they float.
Again, great work, NC...

Cheers!
First, outstanding work and...

2/36 T/G Greg Little - Could be more ideal at RT at the pro level; start out at RG

I see what you did there...

Agreed NinerGM, but I think Little may end up being a mid-late 1st rd pick, he's one of the top 5 T's in this years class.

Draft less Soloman Thomass and more George Kittles!!!

Couple things NC.

Coyle has $1.1M of his base salary GTD for injury until April 1 2019, then it's GTD for the season, now this may be an issue if he can't pass a physical due to the neck injury, he may spend the season on IR, then cut in 2020 or he may end up retiring if it's serious, I know they mentioned it could be career ending when it happened vs Minnesota.

Lee doesn't need to be $1M, he will be tendered at $645K as a ERFA

Mostert could be tendered as a RFA, but I expect a 1yr or 2yr deal to avoid RFA.

Also not sure I like cutting Jullian Taylor, he has high potential IMO, would just be more added depth IMO.

Love the FA signings though, I think Melvin would be the starter opposite Sherman though. Not sure we spend much on a SAM LB, but would be nice.
