Head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke have assembled one of the deepest and most gifted rosters in the NFL. They have done so by hitting on multiple picks late in the draft, re-signing key contributors on both sides of the ball and bringing in outside talent when need be.
Nevertheless, the time has come for the front office staff to re-sign wide receiver Anquan Boldin, safety Donte Whitner and cornerback Tarell Brown.
To keep those guys in uniform, Harbaugh and Baalke have some tough decisions to make. Aging and underperforming players with bloated contracts will have to be sent packing.
That's the only way the 49ers will be able to keep pace in the ever-so-talented NFC West. With a current salary-cap figure of $122,968,692 according to Spotrac, let's take a look at five different salaries San Francisco should consider disposing of during the offseason.
