However, if you're the Niners, you'd be very well served to consider a long-term extension for CK this off-season and if that's the case, suddenly an $8 million backup doesn't make a lot of sense.
Pretty sure they can't sign him until the rookie deal runs out
Edit: it might just be that he can't hold out and get any more money.
