He will get a new deal or be cut.
They're not paying him over 7ml this year with his injury

Money/injury & his 3rd ACL tear. See Kikaha.

Damaged goods.

Dang! That sucks for both him and us. He was balling out and flying around the field. Who knows? I'd like him back if for nothing else than depth but how much will that cost?

Options would include a pay cut or flat out release.

Re: 2020 NFL Free Agency: New Orleans Saints

It's gonna suck if we let Vince Biegel geaux for a short-term rental...

My guess is they give him an attractive guaranteed number coming off that injury he'd take it, but at his age, he may not even get the offer...

That'd put Klein back in play as the other LBer and Anzalone is coming back. Remember, we didn't trade for Alonzo till Thor went down, again...

At worst, I'd keep Klein and draft another assassin. Collectively, we lack the speed to get to those edges. I love what Thor brings but he's a guy you cannot count on to play consistently. Those medical red flags were real.

The key here is to get younger, faster & stronger.

Niners oldest starting LB is Kwon A and he's only 25. Watch how fast they react and get to the edges tomorrow.
