Wasn't he considering retirement? That sort of money might sway my considerations too....

 

Not really. He was involved in a dispute over injury with the WFT who basically were implying he was faking the injury. He threatened retirement trying to get them to trade or release him.

No I think he was reportedly pondering it this offseason too. May have been a tactic to get the 49ers to up their offer.

I think Staley got more last year in guaranteed money so this pry isn't as crazy as it seems.  Just glad KC didn't get him.

 

My understanding was that it was San Fran or retirement.

I know he is a elite Left Tackle, but he also turns 33 this summer.  Even if he only gets the guarantee among three years and is 36, that would still be over $18 mil./yr.  it doesn’t seem like a good deal for both sides, only the player.

Great player....but wow.  He’ll be 33 before the season starts.  55M gtd...look like it could be a 3 year contract paying him 23M a year if SF chooses

I expect it is a 3 year deal with two dummy years to spread a big signing bonus out.

You are almost certainly correct but will they regret signing a 33 year old for 3 years? It seems like a huge investment in an older guy.

Offensive linemen can usually play a little longer. It's not like he's a skill position guy who is old at 30.

Dumb. He’ll be 33 just before the season starts. But at least it keeps him away from AFC competitors,for whom he could be good at least for the next couple years.
