49ers salary cap: Ahmad Brooks takes salary hit, Mike Iupati, Alex Boone see pay raises

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

We've got a new look at the 49ers cap space in light of some escalators and de-escalators in contracts.

Earlier this week, Jason Hurley had some details on some apparent salary escalators and de-escalators for 49ers players. Three days later, we've got some specifics on three of them as the NFLPA has updated their salary database.

Ahmad Brooks faces a slight 2014 base salary decrease from $5.15 million to $4.25 million. He has certain a de-escalators based on total sacks. He apparently did not see the complete increase, but he did lose some of it.

As Jason reported three days ago, Alex Boone received a bump from $950,000 to $2 million, and Mike Iupati will see a pay raise from $1.6 million to $2.7 million. Boone is signed through the 2015 season, while Iupati is signed through the 2014 season. There has been no specific word on contract talks with Iupati. Given the 49ers need to re-do some deals to make room for other contracts, it is entirely possible they figure out an extension for Iupati that lowers his 2014 cap number and locks him up for a few more years. Or, maybe they are going to look for another cheap option down the road.

According to Jason, the 49ers current cap space sits at $7.296 million. This covers these various escalators and de-escalators, the carry-over of 2013 cap space, and the proven performance escalators for Bruce Miller and Chris Culliver. The 49ers can still save $5.105 million by releasing Carlos Rogers, and another $1,274,765 by releasing Jon Baldwin. Frank Gore is due $6.45 million in salary and bonuses in 2014. It's safe to say the team will look to either re-negotiate or release Gore.
