I was uncomfortable with the signing when it happened last offseason, because I felt that was a ton of money doled out to a non-elite player. Remember, Brooks' contract is really a three year deal, (ie, cap-wise, cutting ties before the end of year three doesn't make a whole lot of sense) with some cap ramifications for the final three years. He's the second best OLB on the team, no doubt there, and a beyond solid player. I wouldn't count my chickens on ~27 million in cap space, because I think it is just as likely that Gore plays out the final year on his deal and leaves. I also think Rogers is the only "no-brainer" cut next year; other guys, the niners may do what they did this year, leverage a pay cut out of the guy rather than a straight cut. When you get a guy to take a pay cut, their trade value increases, and you can get compensation for losing them, either when you trade them, or when you let them walk away in FA. Cutting guys who are on the last year of their deal makes no sense, don't it unless you have to, putting pressure on the guy to take a pay cut is better. When you cut someone, you lose them, you have to pay to replace them, and you lose their contribution to the compensatory pick formula when they leave in FA.

At least, that's what I read somewhere.
