I guess this is why Buffalo didn't try and resign him - what an amazing deal - the 49ers spent all that time getting out of cap hell and then they spend this amount of money on one player?

Ridiculous for a team with so many needs.

Apparently there is $22million guaranteed - yes thats right...$22million - and a league source has been quoted as saying its worth (in real terms) 45 million over 6 years.

That cap hit is going to be a mill stone around that franchise for many years.

and the ike taylor deal gets cheaper and cheaper. lock players like him, willie, and starks up on the cheap and look like geniuses 4 years later.

i dont think anyone will accuse 49ers mgmt of sitting on cap space, rather than trying to win a championship.

This is exactly why teams build through the draft.

The dollar amount completely floored me!

How in the hell can the Niners shell out that much moola and still hope to have other quality players? Sounds like Washington and Dallas trying to "buy" their trip to the SB (failing, of course) has become infectious.
