Can 49ers afford an expensive rookie?


Question: With all these free agent signings, are we going to have enough cap room to sign an expensive rookie or two? We're not setting ourselves up for another so-long to Jeff Garcia/Terrell Owens/Charlie Garner disaster again are we?

Austin S., Yreka

Answer: Don't worry, Austin. The 49ers have a separate pool with which to sign their rookies. And besides, they still have a $12 million cap cushion, which is pretty healthy.
