1. We are paying Collins $16.9M, Fuller $13M, Jackson $14M. Jackson's annual average included since contract deals not available, first year number may be lower, but basically, $44M on 3 players in secondary, and probably closer to $48 when depth players counted, and possibly whoever we sign at FS. That is 25% of our cap. For that kind of money, you would expect one absolute superstar like Jalen Ramsey, and one of the most dominant secondaries in NFL. Especially with one of best DLs in NFL in front of it. Jesus was Collins signing horrible, he is almost certainly a goner after this year.

2. We are also spending $44M+ on OL this year, for which you would expect elite unit, ours is not. About $90M on OL and DBs, about half of cap, with a gaping hole still at FS and no long term LT. That leaves other half of cap for QB,WR,RB,TE,DL,LB,ST.

3. Wanna see how to build OL properly, look at Niners. Two stud Ts and a stud C. Don't like older players, but they at least understand the basics. Don't see any $20M guards on their roster.

4. Moves you would expect later part of FA. Signing someone at FS. Adding a WR. Adding a LB. We find three value signings those positions, has been a competent if not stellar FA.

5. Very interesting to think about a defense heavy draft. Not advocating it, but interesting to ponder. We drafted a FS, a CB, two LBs, with higher picks, our D would be scary good. Or FS,CB,LB, and perhaps one more modest big LB signing. Shallow draft for FS and S, so expect us to sign a FS, maybe draft long term answer next year? Or sleeper later? Moehrig at #19? As of now, you don't have to guess where teams will be attacking our D, middle of field underneath and 3+ WR sets to expose our FS, or deeeeeeeeep. With a true 1-high safety, this D could be unbelieveable.
1. Collins will be cut after June 1st, saving 8M in cap -agree that was a horrible signing.

2. Build and pay the trenches. That is a winning strategy. Our DL is 38M which is less than half the league.

3. Hmmm. Do you still want to throw in SF. 49ers make Trent Williams highest-paid OL with 6-year, $138M deal

Stud players (Scherff and TW are both studs) cost.

- and as for positional spending our QB room is 17th even with Fitzpatrick. Which affords us considerable cap space relative to the rest of the league. Bring in a rookie, have a good competion and sort out who is best short term and long term. If none are then you rinse and repeat next year.
We are 15th in defense spending and 19th in offense spending. In other words the FO is building a balanced team. Maybe one position is a little high or a little low but I think it shows they have a comprehensive plan for a long term success.

Re: WFT Free Agency

Actually it is $21.3m after the Jackson signing.... we can extend Scherr and Jon Allen and save a further $13m, so no need to panic yet...... as for the size of Jacksons deal it probably allows them to jettison/extend him before year 3 so money is available for Terry McL.... or it expires after 3 years when we will need money for Montez and Chase... though by then the cap should have skyrocketed

They don't even need to wait, he could be designated as a post-June 1st cut today and it would apply. Wish they'd do it now because the longer it doesn't happen the more I believe he's staying which makes no sense with Kam Curl being the younger, better, and cheaper option.

Thanks and right, I should have said "as a post Jun 1st cut". I don't know why they are waiting, but it only benefits the player to be cut early since the cap relief doesn't start until Jun 1st but the player can find a new team sooner. Maybe they want him in the early ota's as an extra body.

Re: WFT Free Agency

I won't be surprised at all if Collins is back. I think they like what he brings on and off the field. You can never have enough good safeties.

Re: WFT Free Agency

Collins should stay imo. Hed be 18.8M in dead cap vs his 2021 cap hit of 16.9. We would lose cap if we cut him.

Cutting him next year = 9.6 in dead cap (6.8M in savings).

Collins is a plus player and locker room leader, just wish his cap hit was lower.

Re: WFT Free Agency

Plus, if we 'threaten' him with a post 1st June cut, he'd be in a bad position to find a new team with anything like the deal we offered at that point. Might be an incentive to get him to renegotiate his current deal?

True . . . but is he a good safety? Last year the only game i remember him playing well in was the game he got hurt in. The couple of years before that he was pedestrian at best. It has been 3 down years in a row since he had a good season. Due to usage? Or?

Maybe he could be a solution at LB?

He'd cover better than a typical LB.

Re: WFT Free Agency

What? He's damn near a legend. Must be because of all his years, the minimum is way higher than just picking a young guy off the street.
