Free-agent tackle Tony Pashos, who landed on the market after refusing to take a pay cut to remain in Jacksonville, has agreed to terms with the 49ers, according to a league source.
Pashos is expected to sign a one-year deal.
The value of the contract currently is unknown, but there’s a belief that he’ll end up making significantly less than he could have gotten to stay with the Jaguars.
As we understand it, the Jaguars wanted him to reduce his 2009 base salary from $4.3 million to $2.9 million. He refused, apparently believing he’d get more elsewhere.
One source predicts that the deal in San Fran will be worth less than $2 million.
If so, that’s one hell of a haircut.
