49ers Free Agency Preview: Stephon Gilmore
The 49ers currently have two outside cornerbacks under contract: Emmanuel Moseley and second Ambry Thomas. Nickel cornerback Deommodore Lenoir is hiding as an emergency option, but his role appears to be billed as K’Waun Williams’ understudy. This gives San Francisco two real options to take on Cooper Kupp, DeAndre Hopkins and others. It’s… worrying. The past two seasons in San Francisco have provided plenty of insight into what happens to teams that don’t strengthen their cornerback position enough. In 2020, a slew of injuries forced practice squad cornerback Brian Allen up front, where he gave up five catches for 124 yards, a touchdown and two defensive pass interference penalties against the mighty *checks the notes* Ryan Fitzpatrick.

However, some teams will have to release players to go below the salary cap. According to Spotrac.com, the salary cap is set to increase to $208.2 million. Some NFL teams have already released players, such as linebacker Kyle Van Noy from the New England Patriots and tight end Kyle Rudolph from the New York Giants. These two players are injured on the ceiling. According to Spotrac.com, the San Francisco 49ers currently have 43 players under contract and have spent $206.8 million. They have $2.95 million to pay once the league’s new year begins on March 16. The obvious way for the 49ers to free up cap space is to trade or free up
