Recommended Posts

New link, not sure about source from Cincy though : http://www.49erswebzone.com/content/news/view.php?id=8896

 

Here's the text if you can't open it due to traffic:

According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, free agent Nate Clements has been signed or will soon sign with the San Francisco 49ers. The report comes from Thomas Sorrell.

 

 

Email from Geoff Hobson:

Clements is gone to san fran for $23 M to sign - a deal the Bengals could have done if they cut the few guys who do play defense.

That would be good news. Improving the secondary is critical if we are going to get to the playoffs.

Don't fret Rajn, you always have Fred Thomas to fall back on.

Hey, we get first dibs on Bills defenders! It's an unwritten law between teams that can't win SuperBowls. :D

Only 6 teams allowed more passing yards last year than the 9ers. Clements will greatly improve that. Now get a top D-lineman with our first pick and the defense is on the way back to being respectable. I guess with the money they'll give Clements we won't have a shot at Adalius Thomas. Oh well, that's ok as long as we make improvements to the defense I'll be happy.

I think they have a chance at him, still...

Got this from the local 49ers webpage:

 

NFL Network just reported 49ers have agreed to terms with CB Nate Clements.

CLEMENTS BLOWS OUT THE CURVE

 

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the San Francisco 49ers have signed cornerback Nate Clements.

 

It's a mind-boggling eight-year, $80 million deal, with $22 million in guaranteed money, and it makes Clements the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.

 

A league source tells us that, as a practical matter, it's a six-year deal worth $7.25 million per year.

 

Clements was expected to be pursued by several teams. But he never got out of San Fran.

Lewis is getting 10mil guaranteed. Probably high if he doesn't play to his 05' level.

DAMMMMMIITTT!!!!!! This was the one guy I was afraid of the 49ers getting their hands on. Ten Mil may be a bit much, but this is a guy that could turn that whole franchise's outlook straight up. He is that good.

Michael Lewis??? This is the same guy who lost his job to Sean Considine. Yea, that dude who got trucked by McAllister in the playoffs. If they don't make Lewis an LB than they should give Clements another raise for having to also cover the guy Lewis was supposed to.
