Update: 7/.28.11 – It is now officially official. Unable to reach an agreement on a paycut, the 49ers have released Nate Clements.
Update: It looks like the reports on Nate’s release may have been premature. Adam Schefter is reporting that according to Nate’s agent Todd France, his client has not been released. Regardless if he has been or not. Nate days with the 49ers are either over or he has to agree to a serious paycut. Stay tuned for more….
Matt Maiocco is reporting per a source that the 49ers have informed Nate Clements that he is going to be released. After signing a record contract back in 2007, Nate never lived up to the billing. To put it quite frankly Lockdown never really did Lockdown.
With Nate Clements off the books that will free up more than $15 million in cap space. That money hopefully will be used to go out and bring in Nnamdi Asomugha. But there are reports that Nnamdi is using the 49ers as leverage to drive up the price that the Jets are offering.
