They can get Anthony/Dawson in round 2 and move yo if they have too. They are expected to have a comp pick in round 4 so can flip a pick in the 3/4th to mive up
I just hope this doesn't affect us from drafting a MLB between the 31st and 43rd pick which I hope we do in the first place. I really want Perryman.

I'd like them to draft Mckinney and take him of the board.

Re: Chris Borland retires

I wonder how much this costs them cap wise?

If he can do it, more power to him. He may return, however, as Ricky Williams did.

Probably a nickel as far as cap space he was a rookie like 3rd or 4th round pick.

Re: Chris Borland retires

Tough call for Chris to make but I can appreciate his decision.
His history degree from Wisconsin will allow him the opportunity to live a healthy life. He achieved his goal of playing in the NFL (very well I might add).

I wish him well

Re: Chris Borland retires

He probably has been playing for 10-15 years, football paid for a good education and he got some cash for his Rookie year. He don't have the 'need' to play to sustain himself. I'm not suprised about young guys quitting early.

Re: Chris Borland retires

He made it to the pros and can now go be a coach,use his history degree and live in a house outright paid by playing for a year. Good luck to him

Hard decision I'm sure, but done so with the right priorities in mind (no pun intended). Wish him the best.

Don't doubt it was a tough decision but have to respect him for leaving before it was to late and having serious medical issues for the rest of his life
