Thad Lewis, QB: 1 year, unknown amount
Re-Sign Phil Dawson, K: 1 year, $3.1 million
That’s a lot to pay for a kicker, especially one who’s getting older and has dwindling leg strength.
Some teams really value continuity at the position and perhaps the Niners didn’t want to test a dicey free agent crop of kickers or dip into the highly talented draft pool for a long-term solution.
Either way, they have more pressing needs so spending 3 mil this year on a kicker doesn’t make too much sense. How about some money to find someone to replace the departed Alex Boone?
Re-Sign Ray-Ray Armstrong, LB: 1 year, unknown amount
