3 Free Agents the 49ers Can Sign With Limited Cap Space
The San Francisco 49ers will be looking to reload for another Super Bowl run this offseason, but they won't have much cap space to work with. That has already taken its toll, as the team re-signed Arik Armstead, but had to part ways with DeForest Buckner as it was tough to justify paying both players.
With that in mind, let's take a look at three low-cost players the 49ers should target this offseason.
3. Devin Funchess
Kyle Shanahan can seemingly get the most out of any skill-position player, and Devin Funchess is certainly worth a flyer. He's coming off a lost year with the Indianapolis Colts (only one game played in 2019), but the big-bodied WR had 21 touchdowns during his four-year stint with the Carolina Panthers.
2. Linval Joseph
Linval Joseph was released by the Minnesota Vikings earlier, and while he isn't the player he once was, he could be a solid replacement for Buckner. He had 6 tackles for loss and 6 QB hits last season, and entering his age-32 season, he's not likely to cost much on the open market.
1. Aqib Talib
Like Joseph, Aqib Talib's play has declined in recent seasons, though the drop-off has been much more noticeable with Talib. He only played in 5 games last season, though there's still a chance he could revitalize his career in the right situation. There are few franchises better positioned to succeed than San Francisco, and this could be a great landing spot for the five-time Pro Bowler.
