Harbaugh, Kaepernick and Boldin deals are all priorities for 49ers


The San Francisco 49ers have some decisions to make about the future of head coach Jim Harbaugh, quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

San Francisco will try to extend both Harbaugh and Kaepernick while working out a new deal for the free agent to be Boldin.

In dealing with Harbaugh, the 49ers will nee to move his salary to the level of his brother John. The Ravens head coach makes around $7 million a season. Pro Football Talk reports that Jim Harbaugh will also seek control over his personnel.

Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie contract from 2011. The 49ers must figure out a way to keep the quarterback while not breaking the bank. Since they could always apply the franchise tag to him in 2015, there is not as much pressure to work out a deal with him as their is with wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

Boldin was a key part of the 49ers last season after being acquired from Baltimore. He made $6 million last season and responded with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns. All signs have pointed to his return to the 49ers in 2014.
