The Price Is Right

The world waits breathlessly to find out which team will bite the bullet and sign Desean Jackson and instantly become Super Bowl contenders. Apparently, every team in the league wants to sign him — at the right price.

The “right price” and Jackson are not familiar with each other. Jackson always wants more than the right price. The right price is probably about $6 million per year. Jackson sees Percy Harvin getting $12 million in 2013 for playing ONE game. Jackson was scheduled to make $10 mil this year before the Eagles rudely cut him. We’ll find out this week, perhaps even today, what the right price is, or what spin some team will spiel on the price they settle upon.

Jackson is one of the premier mercenaries in the league, along with CB Darrell Revis. Both of these guys have made a career of demanding to re-do their contracts, upwardly of course, every other year. If they have a good year, they want more. If they have a bad year, it’s because they didn’t get more.

If the 49ers are the team that signs him, I’ll … be happy as hell. My whorish behavior is excused. I’m a fan. We can make deals with the devil whenever needed. It’s a biblical right. It might even be considered charitable, since I’ve never liked the little squirt.

Hopefully, he’ll sign with an AFC team and I’ll be free to keep on unenjoying him. Especially if he signs with the Raiders. Then I could really enjoy how unhappy he is with his life.

Revis is playing for the Patriots this year, at a reasonable price. Having sucked mega-millions out of the Buccaneers last year, he’s now decided he wants to play for a winner. Next year, he will want a raise and the Pats will cut him.

The Desean news was welcomed by 49er CB Chris Culliver, who got arrested last week for felony hit-and-run and using an illegal weapon — brass knuckles. That story got swamped by Desean. Brass knuckles. I don’t think anyone’s used those toys since the days of Al Capone. I didn’t even know they were illegal. Interesting choice of a “piece” by the troubled CB. “Look out, Martha! He’s got brass knuckles!” A tire iron would work just as well, probably better, and it’s legal.

Oh well, Culliver just can’t seem to make good decisions. Even worse, he wouldn’t know a good decision from a bad one if you put them on a blackboard with a Happy Face on one and a Frowning Face on the other.

Chris has now entered the Endangered Specie zone. He can forget about getting a four or five year contract for starting CB money. That would require two or three years of spotless civilian behavior, and Chris didn’t take those classes at home or in any of his schooling years at any level. He better hope the Niners don’t find a top flight CB or two in the upcoming Draft, or he could be pounding the pavement come August cut down day.

    New veteran name being floated is Niner interest in 35 year old
    Champ Bailey as a hedge on Culliver’s arrest.
    Pick your poison Nnamdhi, Carlos or Champ?

  2. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I’d rather put Tim Tebow in the defensive backfield.

    Done, doner, and donest. Draft someone.

  3. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    As far as Philly goes, I guess being racist is better than having shady friends. As long as you buy into the program.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Carlos Rodgers is a Raider.

  5. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Raiders have both our starting CBs from last year.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    They raided us! Maybe not since we cut them but it goes with their name.

  7. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs, the Draft is loaded with DB options this year, along with WRs.
    If Baalke sticks with the allotted cache of Picks as is, he’d do well to grab a pair of each IMO, perhaps even a consideration for a pair each at CB and S, as Bethea isn’t a long-term solution for us.

    This Draft is where the depth for the future begins.

    Guys like TBrock and Darryl Morris, are pieces to point to, for the failings of guys like Culliver or Aldon, to keep the Roster free of unwanted legal scrutiny.

    I’d even go so far as to suggest that Crabtree or Aldon aren’t automatic to re-up either.

    With the need to extend Kaep, at the highest paid position on any NFL Roster, Iupati won’t be an easy transaction to complete either.
    Cap dollars can only go so far.
    Shopping via the Draft is where those expenses get offset.

    I’m all in for using this Draft to prepare for future needs, at any position, where value can be obtained.

  8. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Lemonpledge has a little ways to go, but yeah, I don’t see the Niners keeping Aldon and Crabs.

    Suddenly, I am out of material!

  11. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit- I just hope that isn’t an April Fools joke.

    I said it was your day. Nest you have a message to call Mr Lyons
    at the San Francisco Zoo.

  13. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “San Francisco reached out to DeSean Jackson while he was at dinner with Redskins. They want him to visit.”

  14. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    “They sent Tupac and Snoop Dogg to pick DeSean up and drive him to the airport.”

    Amazing. Ryan Braun is welcomed like a hero in Milwakuee . . . while Barry Bonds’ return to Pittsburgh was a bit more mixed as he presented Andrew McCutcheon with his MVP award.

    PFT reporting that DJax will be a Deadskin –

  16. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    3 years, $24 mill? Looks like Jerry Jones and Jerry Jones Jr will be fighting for the 1st pick in the 2015 draft.

    In the immortal words of Chris Cornell,

    I can’t get any lower
    Still I feel I’m sinking

    Outshined, bitches!

    According to Rotoworld the Raiduhs signed Carlos Rogers to a one year $2.5 mil contract with $1 mil guaranteed.
    Seems like if the Niners asked him to take a pay cut it wouldn’t have been that severe.
    Raiduhs got a bargain.

  18. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Carlos cashed in with us last year Bullit thanks to the Culliver injury.
    Sometimes you’re the hammer.
    Sometimes you’re the nail.

  19. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Rogers is the piece of wood.

  20. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We’ll get younger and faster in the Secondary starting next month Chuck.
    Carlos served us well.
    Time to move on.

  21. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I should say was. Hey, he had a good run. I have no problem with him, I just didn’t want him on the team. Cullliver or no.

    I don’t want bailey either.

  22. robNo Gravatar says:

    not re-signing rogers puzzles me , imo he was our best CB last year !

  23. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Colt McCoy just signed with the Redskins

  24. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    ROB!!! Carlos was our best CB 2 years ago. Last year he was OK. And he certainly wasn’t worth the $8 mill on his contract. He didn’t want to take a pay cut, so bye bye. And at his age, it’s not like he was going to improve.

  25. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The only reason Rogers was signed last year was a) his dead money number last year was much bigger than this year, and b) Culliver got hurt.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    April 21 is when the Niners next meet as a team for the offseason
    program. Initially it’s just strength and conditioning with no coaches.
