Golden Nuggets: Let's Make a Deal!

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Ronald Martinez

$18 MILLION DOLLARS! That's the magic number? That's the money per year that Colin Kaepernick wants? Mr. York! Pay that man now! The Niners with Colin at quarterback have already been to a Super Bowl and a championship game. He wants the money Jay Cutler and Tony Romo signed for. What have those guys accomplished? Not much. Colin has already accomplished more than these two guys combined. Why wouldn't the Niners sign Colin to that kind of money?

The Niners are moving into a brand new stadium this year and it would be foolish not to have your star quarterback locked up. He didn't perform as well this season as he did the previous season, but don't forget that this was his first full season and they still made it to the NFC Championship game. He played without his #1 receiver for 11 games. Unless the Niners don't believe that he is their guy (doubtful), they should sign him for the $18-$19 million he is looking for. If not, he will most definitely find that money from another team. He is a rising star in this league and the Niners must remember what it was like without a solid quarterback. Mr. York, pay that man his money!
