Sets the market for Cousins?
They could realistically give him 45+ mil the first year of his deal and the rest of the contract could be 4/90.
Wow, the price for a qb has certainly gone up.
Cousins is going to get 30mill.
Cousins price just went up to $30M per year.
So Cousins is not worth the same money? Before you write Jimmy G is better than Cousins, Rodgers and Brady are making less than Jimmy G and Jimmy G has done squat in comparison to any of them.
The message is you pay top dollar without hesitation to get a QB like Jimmy G or Cousins. Do it Cards
This is an enormously risky move by the 49ers and frankly, I can't wait to watch it blow up in their faces. They are clearly trying to force teams to overpay QBs in hopes that they can "catch up" to the rest of the NFC at an expedited rate. No one outside of maybe Daniel Snyder would have ever offered this sort of money for Jimmy G.
The York family continues to be completely inept. If any gameplanning has ever been done for Jimmy G it has been minimal at MOST. Now teams will have plenty of tape from last year as well as tape on Shanahan's offensive scheme and can attack him properly this year.
They are going to regret this and its going to be amazing.
MJ just said SF has over 100 mil in cap space. 27 just came off the top with signing JG. That leaves a ton to fill out with FAs scrambling to sign there. Look out for the 9ers next season.
They may come to regret it. Do they have a choice here though?
They didn't have to pay him this insane contract rate, $100-110 mil even seems high but would have gotten the job done.
This what’s seperates good teams from perennial losers like the Cards, they are willing to go out and spin mega bucks on a qb who never played 6 games straight let alone played a full season and we are sitting up in here bitching that Cousins isn’t worth the money while he played for an inferior and putrid all around team.
We sitting up in here talking that Baker “air raid” Mayfield or Lamar “Tyrod” Jackson are our answers to the qb position while good teams who have a history of winning go out and acquire their qb. Cousins is the answer to this team. He will make us competitive to the Niners, hawks, and Rams who now got their collective heads together.
I’ll take Foles too, y’all thinking that these draft picks gonna pan out while we already know what we got in Cousins/Foles/Tyrod. This is why the Niners have Super Bowl championships and while the Cards are rebuilding.

Sounds like hyperbole to me, unless by losers you mean, didn't win the Superbowl, and in that case, there are 31 other teams a year that are perennial losers, that are separated from 1 team, and this year the QB that won the Superbowl didn't make that much, so not really sure what you are talking about.
Tom Brady's Cap Number:
Case Keenam's Cap Number:
Nick Foles Cap Number:
How many playoff games has Kirk Counsins won, since he is the obvious and only savior of this team ? Just asking.
When was the last Superbowl win for the Niners ? How much did the last Niner's QB make when they were a playoff team ? What has their collective record been since then ?
Good argument, not saying you are wrong, you just may want to keep your examples more relevant.
You want 9ers to give jimmy G the Washington treatment and hang in their pseudo harmonious state with their franchise QB? In addition, this was a master stroke from 49ers right? Now Rodgers, Cousins, Wilson all need to be paid accordingly hurting their team's cap space.
Man, I'm as much of a Cousins fan as there is, and even I think this is panicking too much.
This is a damn steep deal, but the 49ers had put themselves in good position cap wise to go out and acquire/pay a QB this offseason, which always seemed to be Lynch's plan. The team that selects the right QB of the future in this draft will be in amazing shape going forward compared to some of these guys who are big spenders at the position, but I have to admit I'm scared of us thinking we can find the right guy this year.
This is insane. What has Grappolo done to warrant to become the highest paid player in the NFL? Answer is nothing. San Fran is nuts to pay this kind of money to an unproven player.
MY 2 cents for what it is worth.
