Now that the cap saving carries over to the next season, it doesn't hurt as much to create more flexibility this year.

Why can't you restructure his deal next yr? Before the restructure they had flexibility in what they would do with Ford in 2021...if he's only able to play 20% of the snaps again this yr, they could have either cut him (save almost $13M) or restructured/ask to take a pay cut.

Now because of the restructure, they've essentially guaranteed he will be in SF in 2021 regardless of what happens this yr...they've pushed money down the road to free up cash now. I see no point in doing that unless they plan on either signing someone or give a early extension.

You cannot restructure a contract more than once a year (at least that was a rule in the previous CBA). Doing it this way, Ford could be restructured just before next season to free up another $9m.

Or if he blows you just cut him...there's $13M in savings to be had.

Constantly restructuring a guy who might not ever be 100% is silly imo. Restructures should be used on reliable players that you know will be a part of the team long term.

I hope Cyprien signs. PS players can be activated right before kickoff. Bring everyone to the show and be ready to be called to action.

Same thought on my end. Glad Hasty and Hokit made it.
How can these old farts make the PS?

With the cap going down possibly it's the carry over to next year that's important for the resigning of Trent
Agree, take advantage now of the current cap to help next year's cap. They can still restructure Jimmys contract (per AB81) and even have a better cap space for next year, or the week before the end of this October to get a new player via trade (like Emanuel Sanders last year).

I didn't know that was possible.

Covid rules.
What happened to Reynolds?

Pride can be an ugly thing. Glad he put the ego aside and changed his mind.
This practice squad is better than our 2015 roster

Or Trent Williams extension will be worked out this year.

The only thing I can think of is their planning on talking some extensions and wanted that flexibility now for the process. Maybe a guy like Juice. Because this pretty much keeps Ford here another year. Which is fine if he can stay healthy. We will see.

Woo-hoo my favorite slow receiver back in PS -- Juan Jennings

We'll have to see when he's willing to sit and talk. The last we heard was that he wanted to play out this last year of his deal. Makes sense. He hasn't taken a meaningful snap in two seasons and I'm sure wants to maximize his value.

That makes sense, also has Jadaven Clowny signed yet?
