Found March 02, 2012 on 49ersNews:
We ran across this article from Mac’s Football Blog, breaking down the contract for Ahmad Brooks. Yesterday Matt Maiocco reported that the actual value of the contract was $37 million and included $17.5 million in guaranteed money. The site Mac’s Football Blog went even further discussing the breakdown of the contract and how once again Paraag Marathe brokered the 49ers one hell of a deal. So I’m gonna steal Mac’s article and post it here. Don’t hate us Mac. Through a league source, Mac’s Football Blog has obtained the details of Brooks’ contract which, at the time of signing, includes $8.25 million in fully guaranteed money and $9.25 million that is guaranteed for injury only. As Maiocco initially reported, Brooks received a $7.5 million signing bonus. The other portion of the deal that is fully guaranteed is a $750,000 base salary for the 2012 season. Along with $500,000 in per game roster bonuses ($31,250) and a $100,000 workout bonus, Brooks’ 2012 cap number checks in at a team-...

Should he stay or should he go? Carlos Rogers

The fat contract awarded Ahmad Brooks sends a message the 49ers are willing to pay to keep their top players scheduled to become free agents later this month. But are they willing to pay the top dollar that will be commanded by cornerback Carlos Rogers to remain with the team? Or should the Niners let the Pro Bowler go to see what he’s worth on the open market? We take a look at both sides.

49ers Place Franchise Tag On Dashon Goldson, Seek Long-Term Deal

The San Francisco 49ers placed “the non-exclusive franchise tag” on safety Dashon Goldson Friday, according to the team’s press release. Goldson was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13. If another organization offers him a contract, San Francisco will have the right to match it.  If the Niners chose not to match the offer, they would receive two first...

49ers Franchise safety Dashon Goldson. Term: ” non-exclusive.”

SAN FRANSISCO, March2- In a statement, the San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have used their non-exclusive franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson. “Dashon has been a 49er since we selected him in the fourth round of the 2007 draft,” said 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke. “By using the franchise tag on Dashon, it affords us the opportunity to continue to work...

49ers place franchise tag on S Dashon Goldson

The San Francisco 49ers have placed the franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson, who had been set to become an unrestricted free agent March 13. The move by the NFC West champions Friday keeps Goldson off the free agency market.

49ers to franchise Dashon Goldson

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers will place their franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson. Goldson had a great year in 2011 with 67 tackles and 6 interceptions. Since the 49ers used their tag on Goldson, they’ll have to work hard over the next week and a half to get quarterback Alex Smith and cornerback Carlos Rogers under contract.

For 49ers DB Dashon Goldson, the tag is too bad for Pats

The Patriots have been trying to figure out ways to fix their secondary.  Too many players have beaten them wide or over the middle and they need more than Patrick Chung patrolling the middle to keep people on their toes. Well, one player the Patriots were hoping to go after was San Francisco 49ers Safety Dashon Goldson, who had a monster year on the Bay.  Well, that most likely...

From bust to forgotten, 49ers Alex Smith enters free agency low on totem pole

Somehow Matt Flynn, a backup QB in Green Bay, can play a meaningless game and draw more interest than Alex Smith, the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. While Flynn is getting attention, Robert Griffin III is pushing Andrew Luck for the top quarterback spot in the upcoming college draft. Now, if you’re talking serious QB talk, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees...

Report: Jets want Braylon Edwards back

The New York Jets are reportedly interested in bringing Braylon Edwards back, a guy they probably should never have let walk in the first place. No word on whether the feeling is mutual. Edwards was a big part of the Jets’ back-to-back appearances to the AFC championship game in 2009 and 2010. He signed a one-year $1 million contract with the San Francisco 49ers last year that...
