INDIANAPOLIS — While the chances of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement being ratified before free agency begins on March 5 appear very low, 49ers GM Scot McCloughan told reporters his team is moving forward as if there will be a salary cap in 2010.
There will be no salary cap, though, in ’10 without a new CBA by March 5.
"There have always been teams that have approached free agency in a different manner and like to spend and give away draft picks," McCloughan said. "I know from our standpoint, we're not going to change our way (in an uncapped year).
PFW obtained a memo from Players' Union executive director DeMaurice Smith earlier this week, which told players "it appears likely that no new CBA will be reached and the 2010 season will be uncapped."
McCloughan was the first speaker at podium as the Combine began Thursday.
