Lots of discussion on Niner cap situation - who to sign, keep, trade - but Sea seems to be in worse situation. Maybe their subtraction is our addition. The are currently at $127M (Cap expected to be in 126M-128M range). In addition, they have to keep in mind that next year they need to give Wilson and Sherman new contracts that will likely be huge, unless Wilson has bad year - I don't expect Sherman to. Those two are the face of the franchise. The below figures come from recent Maiocco article.
Who do they let cut? Who do they re-structure? Who do they keep? And can Niners pick up any? I'd love Unger but think out of our price range and we should be able to pick up a starting C in the draft. If they cut Harvin, given his history, maybe we get him at 1-year incentive laden contract to get his value back up - that way low risk, high reward. E. Thomas is a must keep.
