"He has definitely put himself in a position that teams could definitely bid on him very high because if you put the tape on, they're going to like him a lot," Harbaugh said. "He's a football player. So how it pans out, what the numbers actually are, it remains to be seen, but he's earned that. I'm always happy when guys have an opportunity on our team. As a coach, you feel a certain sense of reward when players accomplish that because it's a big deal.
"It's probably the one contract that he'll have a chance to sign, a real big one. Guys that sign two big contracts, that's very unusual. Three almost never happens, so you never feel bad about a guy getting an opportunity. You never want to lose a good player. But from a personal standpoint, you have to feel good about that. Whether we can match that or not, that's all in the math."
