Golden Nuggets: Is the draft here yet?

Sunday, April 24th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Thankfully, the Josh Norman sweepstakes didn't last long and, thankfully, the talented cornerback didn't settle for the San Francisco 49ers. A true talent at the position, Norman is getting stupidly large amounts of money from Washington and the 49ers really aren't in a position to spend that kind of money on one position.

Of course, they have a ton of cap space and it sure would be nice if they spent it somewhere, I just didn't think the idea of devoting so much of it to a cornerback was a good idea. But I really am happy for Norman, taking the Washington for a ride to the tune of $35 million guaranteed.

That's stupid money, that's money that I have to mentally distance myself from to even be able to critique it. I'm guessing Washington will be regretting that contract in the coming years. Given I hate Washington, I'll enjoy it if that happens.
