You don' t think shooting at people at a party is considered dangerous?
Driving drunk multiple times is not dangerous? Hmm.
Let us not confuse you with being intelligent. By the way sf is way over the cap next year, vernon davis is holding out and take a look at who they may be losing.
Window closes after 2014. Thanks bb.
Dummy, while these things are fluid, the 49'ers cap hit for 2015 as of today is $145m
As of today, the pats 2015 cap hit is $147m.
Have you looked at the pats free agents after this year?
Umm, Alex Boone is also holding out. Why? Because they just had to overpay Kaepernick, the hotshot. Flacco's deal has destroyed some other teams' QB situations all because your buddy Ozzie got caught with is pants down.
Side note: Check out this analysis on Balt's crappy teambuilding situation:
In their 18-year history, the Baltimore Ravens have cultivated a perception that their powerful defense can often carry a below-average offense to the postseason.
But that perception isn't actually true. The Ravens have made the playoffs nine times. In eight of those playoff campaigns, they finished in the upper half of the league in points scored. In six of the nine seasons in which they did not qualify for the postseason, Baltimore finished lower than 20th in scoring.
Contrary to popular belief, success for the Ravens has largely come when their offense has played well.
That doesn't bode well for the 2014 squad. The Ravens are coming off a season in which they finished 25th in the league in points scored and had horrible metrics in nearly every area. And they don't seem likely to get any better.
The addition of new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak notwithstanding, the Ravens haven't done enough this offseason to improve their statistical outlook on offense. At this point, it's difficult to consider them a strong playoff contender.
Iupati, Gore, Crabtree, Culliver, etc, all need new deals or they're gone due to SF being over the cap for next year.
Meanwhile, only Matt Slater needs a new deal here along with McCourty. Balke has a lot more studying to do of BB in order to catch up to the teambuiding master.
The 49ers have $5.2 million of cap room this year and are about $2 million over the cap for next year. Mike Iupati, Michael Crabtree, Glenn Dorsey, Frank Gore and Chris Culliver will be free agents. The team also has to decide if it wants to make a long-term deal with Aldon Smith. There isn't a lot of wiggle room. I don't see anything happening next year and it might be better for Davis to wait. If Jimmy Graham wins his franchise arbitration case or if he works out a deal for more than $10 million a year, Davis could be in a good spot for a bigger contract as part of a contract extension in 2015.
Major decisions have to be made about the offense over the next year. Anquan Boldin will be 34 in October. Davis is 30. Gore is 31. Stevie Johnson turns 28 this summer. The 49ers have to see if they have enough young players to move ahead past 2015. Timing is everything in negotiations and Davis' timing isn't great now for getting a new deal.
