    I'm guessing this was before Royal's signing. So probably about 8 mil left now (after Bigby and a couple other odds n' ends).

    You gotta count 3.5 off for Volek too. Then add C.B.J., Bigby, and McMichael.

    well expect Tolbert, Garay, Hester, and possibly Harris to be back. We might also look to extend guys like Donald Butler, Cam Thomas, etc.

    I cant see Tolbert and Hester both coming back unless they both decide to come back really cheap.. most likely hester will be back bc hes one of AJ's "Golden Boys".. I think locking up Donald Butler would be a great move but Cam Thomas i think needs to prove a little more this year b4 getting the security of a new deal

    Well Frank Summers visited with the 49ers. This is how I see it, if Summers is signed by SF and Hester and Tolbert are still out there they'll opt for both, and have Hester as the backup FB and STers guy.

    If Summers is retained I don't think Tolbert is back. Either way I think we should get a LaMichael James or something in this draft. I know its a reach now that we have other areas to look at but you never know.

    But as of right now I guess the tides have changed, Tolbert hasn't been happy with offers and the roles he's getting. He might just be back in SD next year.

    Yeah looks like our offer to tolbert is getting a little sweeter to him everyday... and yeah id be thrilled with picking up a back like lamichael in something like the 3rd round.. personally id prefer chris rainey over lamichael

    I don't see either coming back with Frank Summers ready to play and the signing of McClain. I agree we need to get Butler locked up.
