The 49ers are ready to pursue Aaron Rodgers if the Packers deal with the Jets falls through

Cap Hit Accelerated Dead Money upon Retirement June 1 Split

Ideally, you'd want a 3 or 4 year commitment. You really don't want him through 2 and then retire in 2025. You can split the prorated portion of the dead money after June 1. In 2024, that would also require he sign a new contract for cap purposes to eliminate the option bonus until June 2nd.

Moving Lance post June 1 (dead hits of 5.541 in 23 and 24 for 3.76M savings) and extending Bosa should get us the space for this year. We probably trade Aiyuk at some point before next season.
