49ers not expected to be active signing extensions this year

Since the 49ers didn’t reach a long-term deal with franchise-tagged safety Dashon Goldson, it might be some time before they get an extension done with anyone.

Matt Maiocco of reports that there are few logical targets, and the first might be linebacker Navorro Bowman, whose rookie deal expires after 2013.

With nearly $3.4 million in salary cap room, the 49ers aren’t in a position to do a lot of deals, and that grooves with their pending free agent list.

Other than Goldson, who can’t sign anything other than a one-year deal until the end of the regular season, the biggest name among the 49ers expiring contracts is nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, followed by guys who are either backups or dangers to not make the 53-man roster.

That list includes wide receiver Randy Moss, but he’s a day-to-day proposition, and not the kind of player you make long-term plans around.

    Well, there you go. The 49ers are done before they ever really got started.

    Just a great sign that the Niners are taking care of their best players.

    You didn’t read the article did you?

    Anyway, I think everyone agrees Bowman will be priority number one next off season, even over Sopoaga. He arguably out played Willis last year.

    Long term we’re pretty safe from any major roster change because our core players all have contracts so spaced out from each other, none of them should come up in the same season.

    The one factor not listed however is that we really aren’t sucking our roster dry with a typical franchise QB contract. Idk what our future QB prospects are, but I imagine at some point we’llbe spending a lot of money on one, and we might have to make some tough choices.

    Until then, go defense.
