FRANCHISE PLAYER: LB Julian Peterson (signed tender of $7.288M. If Peterson comes back strong this year from his torn Achilles tendon, the Niners would like to get him signed to a long-term deal before 2006. TRANSITION PLAYER: None. UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS --- WR Curtis Conway, a 12-year veteran, would like to play another season but it probably won't be with the 49ers, who need to develop some younger players. If the 49ers were going to re-sign Conway, they probably already would have done it by now. --- OT Jerome Davis (not tendered as ERFA). He certainly won't be asked back by a team which is in the process of a massive overhaul along the offensive line. --- QB Brandon Doman (not tendered as ERFA). His NFL career is almost certainly over now that he has joined the coaching staff at Brigham Young University, his alma mater. --- C Brock Gutierrez started 15 games last season after Jeremy Newberry was injured. The 49ers need to find more stout depth at this position in case Newberry's injury problems continue, and they addressed that issue in the draft by taking two versatile offensive linemen on Day 1, which makes re-signing Gutierrez much less of a necessity. RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: None. EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS: None. PLAYERS RE-SIGNED --- DT Tony Brown: ERFA; $380,000/1 yr. --- TE Steve Bush: UFA; terms unknown. --- S Dwaine Carpenter: ERFA; $380,000/1 yr. --- DT Chris Cooper: UFA; terms unknown. --- OG Eric Heitmann: RFA; $656,000/1 yr. --- RB Terry Jackson: UFA; 2 yrs, terms unknown. --- LB Brandon Moore: RFA: $656,000/1 yr. --- OG Rob Murphy: ERFA; $455,000/1 yr. --- LB Julian Peterson: Franchise FA; $7.288M/1 yr. --- LB Saleem Rasheed: RFA; $656,000/1 yr. --- CB Rayshun Reed: ERFA; $305,000/1 yr. --- LB Ray Wells: ERFA; $380,000/1 yr.
