About that...PDTShareTweetShareShareESPN analysts think 49ers got bargains in free agencyFree agency is winding down as far as the big, must-have signings are concerned, and the San Francisco 49ers were in the thick of things making all sorts of deals. They went and got Kwon Alexander and later grabbed Tevin Coleman, Jason Verrett, and traded for Dee Ford later signing him to a mega deal. It began with everyone wondering what the hell they were doing with all that money, but after the salary cap figures came out, Paraag Marathe—and John Lynch by extension, look like geniuses. We love it when people talk good things about the 49ers, and it’s even better when the national media is dedicating a segment to free agency and who did it right. ESPN answered some questions about free agency and several of their analysts had good things to say about the 49ers. In fact, they were saying an awful lot of good things and nothing bad. For starters, Mike Clay called the Jason Verrett deal the best bargain deal: There’s of course dissenters Y.A. Tittle Jersey White , and Jason Reid, along with Kevin Seifert think the better bargain was a 49ers deal, but for Tevin Coleman. Seifert compares the Coleman deal to Jerick McKinnon: And Reid compared it more to helping Kyle Shanahan’s offense: It’s always good when people are saying nice things about the 49ers. I’ve been preaching that the 49ers have a good deal of salary cap space, but that could go to zero real quick if they aren’t careful. The moves they’ve made make sense, carry some risk, but also don’t weigh terribly on their cap figures for the future. Jason Verrett is a great example of this: He has a high ceiling, and if things don’t go as anticipated in a year, the 49ers aren’t swimming in back-cash. If they do go well, the 49ers control his rights and get something long-term worked out. If things don’t work out, it still may hurt, but it won’t force their hands at drastic changes to the roster just to keep things. Outside of the Coleman/Verrett signings. The multi-year signings were (wisely) front-loaded and made cheaper in later years. That said http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-george-kittle-jersey , one has to wonder how long players will keep going for these deals before they want more job security and for those cap hits to filter through each year rather than be loaded of upfront. In any case, it’s not just one person bringing up the 49ers, but several in a segment that can't’ stop talking about these smart additions and contracts. We’ll see how this translates to the field. The 49ers used their franchise tag on kicker Robbie Gould this year, but that doesn’t mean that he will definitely be playing out the year under its terms.General Manager John Lynch said on Monday that the team spoke to Gould about a longer deal before deciding to use the tag and that it is still something they’d like to discuss with their kicker before the July 15 deadline to put such an agreement in place.“We had a conversation with his representation at the Combine,” Lynch said, via the . “The franchise [tag] was something we have at our disposal that yeah, we’re gonna use because he’s a very good player and we don’t want to let him go but we worked really hard to try to get a deal done. And that didn’t happen, and so I think we understand that and we move forward accordingly. That’s not dead, either.”Gould is set to make $4.97 million if he plays out the year under the tag.
