Report: 49ers trade for CB Eric Wright

ESPN is reporting the 49ers have traded a conditional late-round 2014 draft pick to the Buccaneers for 28-year-old cornerback Eric Wright. Wright played just 10 games last season because he injured his ankle and was suspended four games for violating the league’s PED policy. He was also arrested for DUI last Friday. In the 10 games he […]

SANTA CLARA — Here’s what Vic Fangio said Wednesday afternoon, courtesy of the 49ers.   So, offensive coordinator Greg Roman had said yesterday, obviously he’d been through two offensive installs already and it was more for him about execution.

49ers OTAs: Craig Dahl and Chad Hall stand out, Chris Culliver struggles

SANTA CLARA – Here’s the good and the not-so-good from the 49ers’ Wednesday OTA session. THE GOOD 1. Craig Dahl – He was the starting free safety, and he had the best day of all of the 49ers’ defensive backs. Dahl almost picked off Colin Kaepernick twice. First, Kaepernick tried to fire a pass to […]

The 49ers’ top 10 offseason position battles

Here are the top-10 position battles on the 49ers I’m looking forward to this offseason. Which battles interest you the most? 1. No.2 and No.3 cornerback: Carlos Rogers vs. Nnamdi Asomugha vs. Chris Culliver.

The newest 49ers’ cornerback, 31-year old former two-time All Pro Nnamdi Asomugha, spoke on a conference call Wednesday afternoon with Bay Area reporters.

49ers sign Nnamdi Asomugha to one-year deal

The 49ers just signed cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million, but none of that money is guaranteed according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Asomugha will be 32-years-old next season. He’s four days younger than the 49ers’ oldest cornerback, Carlos Rogers. Do you like this signing? Do you think Asomugha will be […]

Grant’s four-round 49ers mock draft

This is my second attempt to mock the 49ers’ draft. My first attempt was on the money, but this second attempt is even more on the money. Note: I mock the first four rounds only. The 49ers will trade up and draft CB Xavier Rhodes with the 11th pick. They will trade the Chargers picks […]

The best slot cornerbacks in the draft

The 49ers need to draft a slot cornerback, someone quick and fast enough to cover receivers like Percy Harvin, Danny Amendola, Victor Cruz, etc. In your opinion, who are the best slot cornerbacks in the draft? I’ll give you ten names and I want you to rank them. If there are any slot cornerbacks I’m […]

How the Vikings used Percy Harvin against the 49ers

The 49ers will face Percy Harvin at least two times next season. Can they match up with him? They couldn’t last season when he was on the Vikings. Harvin caught nine passes for 89 yards and he ran once for nine yards. A couple of his catches were screens and a couple were swing passes […]

What the 49ers really need

Matt Barrows wrote a blog this morning arguing why the 49ers’ biggest offseason issue is the pass rush, not the secondary. I love Matt’s work and I usually agree with his opinions, but I disagree this time. The 49ers need to address the secondary with greater urgency than the D-line. If Isaac Sopoaga and Ricky […]
