    Jim Harbaugh wants to bring some knuckles to Trent Baalke’s dome.

    With the current trend and thinking that the draft is “deep” and the market is such that good starting players area available in almost every spot, except for QB……this is the right move for him. He knows if he is cut that he may not find another team to pick him up for any more money so “bird in the hand” is the smart move.

    More of these types of re-negotiations for many of the teams pushing up against this and next years cap is sure to follow.

    It’s going to be hard to bring in a new GM with Harbs wanting all the power. You might as well buy out Baalke’s contract and let Jim run the show. He got you guys in the NFCC three years in a row with a trip to the big game. Pay the man.

    Why are they even paying him 1.2 million when they are so pressed for cap room. I like Dahl as a reserve player but only for a vet min of 800k a year. They should draft a safety in the third or fourth and let him learn for a few years as a backup

    Not sure if it was Harbs that got them to the NFCC three years in a row…
    That team was built before he got there for the most part.

    Niners don’t seem to like paying for talent.
