    According to 610, Nate Clements signs with SF 49ers for 10 years 100 MM. Record setting, richest contract signed by any CB.

    and this is why you don't get into a bidding war with top FA's

    I have no problem sitting back and grabbing solid players at a much cheaper price.

    The 49ers have signed CB Nate Clements to the biggest contract ever given to a defensive player -- eight years, $80 million, including $22 million guaranteed.

    Actually I've read it's really backloaded so in reality it's a 6 yr. 44 mill contract. However the numbers if he makes it into the latter part of the deal are ridicolous and no matter what this is really gonna have an impact on FA now. Even if he doesn't get anywhere near the total.

    it's not hard to imagine. best year in a long time in terms of money, he's the only quality corner, and corners are ALWAYS overpaid in free agency, more than any other position.
