Question: Not that I'm complaining or anything, but why did the 49ers have so much cap space this offseason? Since we exhausted it all, does that mean we will have less next season? Or that when everyone we signed this offseason's contracts run out, we won't have the money to resign them?

Answer: The 49ers certainly don't have as much cap space than they had at the start of free agency and might never have that luxury again. But they're not in danger of bursting the cap either. Remember, the cap goes up every season and that there are some high-priced vets - Bryant Young and Larry Allen - who may not be back in 2008. In other words, the team is still sitting pretty.
