Report: 49ers sign Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne to futures contract

Twenty-seven-year-old Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne just announced he has signed a futures contract with the 49ers. The contract guarantees Hayne a spot on the Niners’ 90-man offseason roster. Good, creative signing. Hayne has the physical traits of a first round pick. He is 6’2″, 226 pounds and he reportedly ran a 4.53 40-yard dash a […]

49ers’ 2015 mock draft 1.0

This is my first 49ers’ mock draft of the year, but it won’t be my last. Feel free to make your own and post it below. Round 1. La’el Collins, OG, LSU. Trent Baalke says he wants the 49ers to run the ball, but Mike Iupati is a free agent and Alex Boone has just […]

Report: Stevie Johnson to be released

The 49ers will cut Stevie Johnson and save roughly $6 million in cap space, according to NBC4 D.C. Johnson played well last season. When he was targeted, Colin Kaepernick posted a 102 passer rating. Johnson was in line to start opposite Anquan Boldin before the Niners made this move. Who do you think will start opposite Boldin in […]

Colin Kaepernick’s understudy

Who will be the 49ers’ backup quarterback next season? Probably not Blaine Gabbert or Josh Johnson, a couple of free-agent retreads the 49ers should not re-sign. The Niners need to find a quarterback worth developing, a quarterback with a future. I count five quarterbacks who fit that description in the upcoming draft: Tier 1: Marcus […]

Trent Baalke’s pattern with running backs

Trent Baalke has a pattern when it comes to drafting running backs. One year Baalke spends a second-round pick on a running back, and the next year he spends a fourth round pick on a running back. Then he repeats the pattern. In 2011, Baalke drafted Kendall Hunter in the fourth round. In 2012, Baalke […]

@Fan77...Only for optimism, I previously called for Baalke to score (4) difference-makers in the draft....it sort of dep... - OREGONINER

The DeVante Parker Question

Most of us agree wide receiver is the 49ers’ biggest need this offseason. Amari Cooper and Kevin White are the top two wide receivers in the upcoming draft. They will get taken probably within the top-10 picks. DeVante Parker is the consensus No.3 receiver in the draft, and he probably will get taken after the […]

Raiders in SoCal is so wrong

This is my Monday column. WARNING — This is a Raiders’ column. 49ers’ fans — feel free to skip this. Dude. I’m talking to you, Mark Davis. Carson? Seriously? You’re not going to Carson. You’re going nowhere. Who are you kidding? You’re the Raiders. You’re acting as if you’re desirable, as if you’re a real […]

49ers’ Colin Kaepernick rages against fan on Twitter

This is my Friday column. Dear Colin, Even though you are 27 years old and have been a starter in the NFL for three seasons, you still lack a quarterback’s temperament. It troubles me. You actually pick fights with fans on Twitter. You picked one on Wednesday. Let’s analyze what you did. This is a […]

Tomsula: “I take full responsibility for the results of the coaching staff.”

This is the transcript of Jim Tomsula’s press conference from the NFL Combine, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. Opening comments: “Good afternoon and we’ll try this again. Go ahead and shoot. I’m really happy to be here and I’m excited to see you all and looking forward to the questions.”   You seemed to […]

Baalke: “Head coach at University of Michigan is a heck of a football job. I know that’s something that he always wanted to do.”

This is what what Trent Baalke said Wednesday morning at the NFL Combine. Q: What are some of the things you consider when you evaluate wide receivers? BAALKE: Can they catch the football, probably No.1. They come in all different sizes, as we know. All different speeds. You really try to match that guy up […]

Raiders’ Davis emerges as the owner with respect

This is my Tuesday column. At a certain point, Jed York had all the goodwill and Mark Davis had none. I’m talking as recently as six months ago. People perceived York as one of the best owners in the NFL, a forward-thinking young entrepreneur who had a brand new stadium, a great team and a […]
