Peterson avoids franchise tag, signs one-year deal

The 49ers signed Julian Peterson to a one-year contract on Friday. The Mercury News reports that the deal will pay the two-time Pro Bowl linebacker $7.29 million. By signing Peterson, the Niners avoided placing the franchise tag on their defensive leader. The team went that route last year and it resulted in a lengthy holdout that lasted until late August. Peterson then tore his left Achilles' tendon in October and missed the remainder of the season.


When healthy, Peterson is one of the league's premier defensive players. He entered last season ranked as the No. 6 linebacker in Fanball's individual defensive player rankings. He is still rehabilitating the injury and is not expected to take part in the Niners minicamp that is scheduled to begin on April 1, but he should be good to go for training camp

Sorry Aww :-D

Woo hoo! ;-D

He's a good player, and hopefully he will help the defense be better this year. The Seahawks didn't need any more help anyway. :-D

Peterson should have been greatful to have any contract this year. I hope that he returns the favor that we gave to him this season by signing for a reasonable rate after what I'm sure will be an all-pro year.
