The San Francisco 49ers may be in cap trouble. In 2014, their projected cap number is scheduled to be under the cap at $121.6M (projected cap is about $126M). However, Colin Kaepernick is scheduled to be a free agent after 2014, with just a $1.6M cap figure scheduled for '14 currently. They're about to pay him handsomely.
We already know the 49ers will likely let go of UFA Anquan Bodin. What we DON'T know is just what they'll do with Michael Crabtree. A free agent after the 2014 season, the 49ers would save $4M by moving him now.
Though health issues resulted him in only catching 19 passes in '13, and just yesterday he just got bit**-slapped by Richard Sherman, Jim Harbaugh did the 49ers no favors by calling him the "best pass-catcher of all-time". He had over 1100 yards and 9 TD's in '12. He's going to need to get paid eventually with money the 49ers simply aren't going to have.
Would it be wise to try to make a play for him? If so what compensation would you be willing to send to the 49ers?
