The 49ers just signed Pierre Garcon to a 3 year deal that I hear is $16 mill per? Shanny really likes him some Garcon. He of course was Shanny’s big signing when he came to Washington a few years ago.
Not quite sure if that is the real number, but holy shit, what this says to me is that we are going to go after Kurt Cousins in a big way. Shanahan appears to be in the process of creating the Resdskins West.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly ratchets up the pressure on everyone in the building. A team that has been a laughingstock and one that would have been given rope to build slowly is now looking like they want to forego any gradual process and burn through the cap money in a big fat hurry. Again, not necessarily bad, but this team is all of a sudden looking at a 9 win season being a failure should Cousins show up amid the spending frenzy.
