Will the 49ers be able to pick up Nnamdi Asomugha after removing Nate Clements and his $80 million (8 year) salary? Clements’ deal includes $42.5 million in salaries for the 2011-15 seasons, which the 49ers will now not have to pay.
And if the highly prized ex-Raider cornerback doesn’t work out, how about Jonathan Joseph from the Cincinnati Bengals? Or Antonio Cromartie from the New York Jets (San diego Chargers before that), who is also on the Free Agency list?
Now with the cuts of other high-paid players, the 49ers should have a ton of salary breathing room. Maybe we’ll just take 2 new corners, and leave Shantae Spencer as a Nickleback? I just want to get this show on the road, and have one less question in my head as to the state of the upcoming 49er defense.
