    We could save a mil by cutting Mare.
    Once Dmac is drafted a Dmac Jersey will spontaneously materialize in the closet of each and every Dolfan...

    ...and not that replica crap either...

    right now we have $17mil of cap space. And that 20 FAs stuff is deceptive as Lemon, Bell, Jones, Vickerson, Eckel and Denney are either RFAs or ERFAs.

    Only "real" UFAs that we are even going to sign...are Bowens, Traylor, and Spragan.

    None of the names I mentioned will cost more than chump change to re-sign.

    By cutting Booker we clear $3mil, Anderson $2mil, Harrington $2mil, and James $2mil... so that's $9mil more of cap space on top of the $17mil.

    That's not mentioning restructuring the contracts of Zach, Taylor, Carter, Mare, Wilkinson, or Chambers to clear more space

    we probably target UFAs like Clements, Samuels, or Stalworth to see what they want...

    probably signing Eric Steinbach and Kevin Curtis...

    That sounds great and all, but you have to replace those players you cut and it would almost be better to keep them, due to what is available as a FA. I see Booker and Harrington staying. Anderson and James I see going, cause I see Cameron/Meuller signing Dielmann from San Diego as our new LG. As much as I would like to see Mare cut, I just don't see anyone on the FA market that is any better at a cheaper price.
    NFL Draft
    1(21) - Joe Staley (LT) (Trade down w/Denver), 2a(40) - Ryan Kalil (C), 2b(56) - Drew Stanton (QB) (From Denver), 2c(60) - LaMaar Woodley (DE), 3a(70) - Jonathan Wade (CB)(From Denver), 3b(71) - Michael Bush (RB), 4(108) - Quinn Pitcock (DT), 6a(181) - Kevin Boss (TE), 6b(198) - Roy Hall (WR), 7a(218) - Chase Johnson (OL), 7b(225) - Jamelle Cornelius (WR), 7c(238) -Daren Stone (S)

    They should give him a pay cut at least.

    lots of good ones are out there Matt Stover, Josh Brown, Jay Feely, Rian Lindell to name a few but if you want cheap how about Justin Madlock late in the draft, he won't take up of any money really
