Harbaugh gets a back up QB who gets 8 mill next year but now his agent can only negotiate for a backup QB salary.
Now, you have no QB controversy in San Fran/ he has a guy on the bench that has won 4 playoff games but will not have a QB controversy.
In 2014, after mentoring under harbaugh for a year or two, 49ers put out the word that Sanchez is available for trade & you guys know the NFL, there will be a team that needs a starting QB because of Injury or what have you & will trade a #2 pick to take one more chance on Mark Sanchez to ressurect his career.
This stuff happens all the time in this QB starved league.
Could be a team like the Raiders across the bridge, when Palmers run out of town.
He might even play well after Harbaugh gets his confidence back.
Stranger things have happened.
What qb Controversy? Kapenick will be the qb, Alex Smith will be cut before April 1st when his Salary becomes guaranteed for the year. The 49ers have less cap space than the jets (post cuts) just signed their OLb Bowman for 7 mill and still needs to sign Goldson. he is not going to pay 8.5 mill for a b/u reclamation project. he may even be able to get a draft pick for Smith.
Harbough is much more likely to get a 2mill a year backup.
