Report: 49ers will cut Carlos Rogers

According to ESPN, the 49ers will cut Carlos Rogers. That move will save the 49ers $5.1 million in cap space. Do you think this move increases the chances the 49ers will re-sign Donte Whitner? Why or why not? And who do you think will be the 49ers’ slot cornerback next season?

Post-Combine, pre-free-agency mock draft

The 49ers own five of the top-100 picks in the upcoming draft. Here’s how the Niners should use them. Pick No.30: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU The best wide receiver available. I think Benjamin is the third-best WR prospect in the draft behind Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans, but draft gurus seem down on Benjamin. If […]

No point to this discussion

Here is my Friday column. The NFL wants to make football more entertaining. The NFL means well. An eight-member competition committee of coaches and executives believes the extra point needs fixing. It’s just like a 20-yard field goal. Last season, kickers made them 99.6 percent of the time. Boring. Perfunctory. “The extra point is almost […]

According to Adam Schefter, Michael Bennett will become a free agent next week. Do  you think the 49ers should sign him? If the Niners did sign Bennett, he would replace Ray McDonald as a defensive tackle on the 49ers’ Nickel defense. Last season, McDonald had 5 sacks, 3 QB hits and 30 hurries in 807 […]

Report: Harbaugh works out QB Garoppolo

The day after reports surfaced that Colin Kaepernick wants a massive contract extension, Jim Harbaugh privately worked out Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who projects to be a second-round pick. What do you think this means? Do you think the 49ers are trying to put pressure on Kaepernick and to take away his leverage? Do […]

Harbaugh: “I get paid extremely well. Jed York has always been square dealing with me. I don’t think about that as an issue.”

Sports Illustrated recently interviewed Jim Harbaugh, and he denied that he wants a contract extension, that he wants more power and that there is friction between him and Trent Baalke. Here’s a Harbaugh quote from the interview: “I have never been a guy that wants to get extensions. If the guy at the top is […]
