Clements to SF
Just reported on the NFL Network. Will get a link soon.

My god this is just insane...



Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the San Francisco 49ers have signed cornerback Nate Clements.

It's a mind-boggling eight-year, $80 million deal, with $22 million in guaranteed money, and it makes Clements the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.

Clements was expected to be pursued by several teams. But he never got out of San Fran.

omg! ****.

Diehard 03-02-2007 07:31 PM

Argh. That's sick money...

draftguru151 03-02-2007 07:31 PM

Wow free agency is getting ridiculous.

sup3rk1ng 03-02-2007 07:31 PM

No way we pay him that much. I'll believe it when I see it somewhere else. I don't doubt we signed him but 80 MILLION!?

DChess 03-02-2007 07:31 PM

just saw this on pro football talk, thats a **** load of money

49ersfan_87 03-02-2007 07:31 PM

****. We so overpaid..

Tubby 03-02-2007 07:32 PM

Wow. 10 characters.

Brodeur 03-02-2007 07:33 PM

Here comes the NFL equivalent of the baseball offseason, and Nate Clements has kicked it into high gear. That deal is just absolutely insane for Clements.

cordscords 03-02-2007 07:33 PM

Clements is good, but he 'aint that good!

GSOT 03-02-2007 07:34 PM

That cant be right....that is friggin insane....I hope that leaves the Niners in cap hell for years to come, and he just sits back on his fat pay check and plays like a bum...muwhahaha

ninerfan 03-02-2007 07:34 PM

OMG I hope its not that much. I cant see Nolan signing off on something like that

Shiver 03-02-2007 07:34 PM

Oh Em Gee

That is unbelievable.

sup3rk1ng 03-02-2007 07:35 PM

apparently it's 8 year 80 million with a 22 mill signing bonus

art vandelay 03-02-2007 07:35 PM

Haha, and you guys ripped me for giving him $63 million in the forum mock.

SuperMcGee 03-02-2007 07:35 PM

Great Goobley Goo!

Congrats, Nate

49ersfan_87 03-02-2007 07:36 PM

Say goodbye to adalius thomas..

Auron 03-02-2007 07:37 PM

Wow... I mean I was high on Clements and all that, but highest paid Defensive player in NFL history?

Yep. Thats correct.

Geo 03-02-2007 07:38 PM

Bill Polian's draft strategy of spending a 2nd round pick on a cornerback every year looks rather good right now. Wow.

The worst part is that the 49ers, in having to pay extra to lure Clements to their team, have established a ridiculous market value. You honestly think Asante Samuel is going to ask for any less when he becomes a free agent in 2008?

ks_perfection 03-02-2007 07:38 PM

Wow, thats more than I expected, I tought he'd get about the same as Champ did. I geuss its only 1 million more per season than he got.

sup3rk1ng 03-02-2007 07:38 PM

4:24 p.m.: CORNERBACK NATE CLEMENTS AND SAFETY MICHAEL LEWIS HAVE SIGNED WITH THE 49ERS. from matt maiocco WOW and people called John York cheap HAHAHA

Apparently, it's backloaded so it's basically a 6 year deal worth $7.25 million per year

49ersfan_87 03-02-2007 07:38 PM


"A league source tells us that, as a practical matter, it's a six-year deal worth $7.25 million per year."

Its probably like that shaun alexander signing..looks big on paper but in reality is easily replacable after a while. Or is that nate burleson?

Just hope he doesnt tank on us..

Hail Browns 03-02-2007 07:39 PM

WOW!!! Um, that's absolutely insane. I'm glad the Browns didn't pay him that with what they already payed Steinbach. I just don't even understand how you could get a contract of that size.
