49ers contract extension candidate: Nick Bossa, Dre Greenlaw among the options

When the 49ers reached Deal with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo Consisting of a significant wage cut, the club has created a salary cap space that can now be invested in other areas.

This means that the 49ers can look to the future by extending a contract or two to players who want to keep them for a while.

“I’m not going to tell you who, but we’re talking to a few guys,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said.

Lynch said his time and focus in recent weeks has been on the 53-man squad and coaching staff.

Contract negotiation and salary cap planning are left to Executive Vice President of Football Operations Parag Marath and Vice President of Football Operations Brian Hampton.

The 49ers have 29 players scheduled for some form of free agency after this season, so there are plenty of young players for the club to target for extensions.

“We’ll try to follow up on that, to see if it makes sense for them, for us,” Lynch said. “We always try to lock up our good players.”

Here’s a look at the most reasonable players the 49ers could engage in talks about extending the contract:

De Nick Bossa

Bossa kicks off the 2022 season as part of a conversation NFL Defensive Player of the Year. That’s how he looked good during training camp.

It seems highly unlikely than the 49ers and Bossa will work towards extension Now because he has two seasons left on his contract. The 49 players chose the fifth year option, which is set to pay him nearly $18 million for the 2023 season.

Most likely, the two teams will meet at the end of this season and try to do something before the start of training camp in 2023.

And if he plays as expected, Bossa’s acting will surely make the case for him to become the highest-paid non-quarterback player in the NFL.

dear poet

The 49ers signed Shaer as an unbelievable rookie in 2019 after his final season at Florida Atlantic ended with a devastating knee injury.

Having played all three seasons in his initial contract, the 49ers introduced him this year Huge pay raise in a one-year tender worth $3.986 million as a restricted free agent. This is another decade.

Poet Started 22 of 44 matches In which he played for the 49ers over the course of three seasons. But there is no doubt that he will be a full-time starter in 2023. He will either be with 49 players or with another team with a nice free agent contract.

CB Emmanuel Moseley

The 49ers positioned the corner as a big target for the free agency, and secured their man for Charvarius Ward with a three-year contract agreement worth $40.5 million.

Based on the early days of training camp when Ward and Mosley were both healthy and on the field together, the 49ers’ key players seemed to be the team’s strength.

If the 49ers wait until the end of the season to enter into contract talks with Moseley, his value could be too high for them. But if they move now, they may be able to strike a deal that will provide him with security while also being a good investment at the right time and price for the team.

LB Dre Greenlaw

The 49ers have already held quarterback Fred Warner for the long term. So it seems almost impossible for them to be able to re-sign both Greenlaw and Al-Shaair to a multi-year extension.

They will most likely have to choose one or the other.

Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019, and he’s played a lot of good football for this team.

He got off to a strong start last season when he brought back his interception for a touchdown against the Detroit Lions. However, he also came out of that game in need of surgery to repair a torn core muscle. He appeared in only three games in the regular season.

Greenlaw is scheduled for unrestricted free agency at the end of the season.

De Charles Ominihu

The 49ers acquired Omenihu in last season’s deal with the Houston Texans for a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. His versatility and production have shown the team that he can play as a key player along the defensive line for a while.

Omenihu, 25, is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, and shouldn’t require a big financial deal to lock him up for another two seasons.

The 49ers showed they thought they couldn’t have too many defensive linemen, and Omenihu fits in well.


Jimmy Ward’s safety contract is set to expire at the end of the season. will miss At least the first four games Season with a hamstring injury. It would be better for the club to evaluate their options when they see how this season will turn out.

Defensive end Samson Abukam enters the second season after signing a two-year contract a year ago with 49 players. It’s been stuck in 4.5 bags each of the past 3 years. If he makes a big leap in production, he will be looking to make money.

Correct Intervention: Mike McGlinchy plays the fifth-year option. 49-year-olds will have to consider their long-term health prospects when deciding how they want to move forward.

– Kicker Ruby Gold has been pretty consistent for a long time. He and the team will face some tough decisions after this season.

—- Position/Goalkeeper Daniel Brunskill has started every game in the past two seasons. When he returns from a hamstring injury, he will likely find his way back into the starting lineup. He is scheduled to be in unrestricted free agency in 2023.

Defensive Intervention Kevin Givens will be a restricted free agent, so the club will certainly look to bring him back.

Jauan Jennings’ wide receiver is also set to be a restricted free agent. He could return in 2023 with a reasonable contract.
