Jed York throws Trent Baalke under the bus

Jed York made a vow to win with class on December 29th, 2014. Less than three months later, the 49ers signed Jerome Simpson, who has been arrested three times since 2008. One arrest was for DUI. He pleaded guilty to reckless driving. He was suspended by the NFL when a 2.5-pound package of marijuana addressed […]

Jerome Simpson signing is the right direction for 49ers, but it changes little

Jerome Simpson could do some good things for the 49ers in 2015, but his signing changes little in San Francisco's overall plans. Bringing in Jerome Simpson on a two-year contract was a definite step in the right direction for the San Francisco 49ers. On Thursday, Fooch wrote about how the signing reminded him of the Perrish Cox signing from a few years ago and I think that's pretty accurate. He's a reclamation project who hasn't done much on the field recently but has flashed a lot of potential in the past. In other words, the 49ers probably don't intend for Simpson to see the field early...

49ers announce the signing of WR Jerome Simpson

The 49ers just announced they’ve signed 29-year-old wide receiver Jerome Simpson to a two-year deal. Simpson was out of the league in 2014, but in 2013 he caught 48 passes for 726 yards. He was a decent deep threat. Do  you think Simpson will make the 49ers’ final roster? Or is he a placeholder until the 49ers […]

49ers sign WR Jerome Simpson to 2-year contract

The San Francisco 49ers have added a wide receiver with a troubled background. Jerome Simpson signed a 2-year deal and will look to make a name for himself in a wide receiver corps featuring some turnover. Well, apparently the San Francisco 49ers have decided "two pounds" is there guy. The team has signed wide receiver Jerome Simpson to a two-year contract, with the team confirming the news. There is no word on salary, but I would be surprised if it was much more than the league minimum. He might have gotten a small signing bonus, but we'll see as more information comes available. The 49ers...

49ers hosted WR Jerome Simpson same day as Ted Ginn

The San Francisco 49ers are turning over every stone they can to find wide receivers. The team hosted free agent Jerome Simpson on Wednesday. The San Francisco 49ers are looking through various wide receiver options, and we can add one more to the list. Matt Maiocco is reporting the team brought in free agent Jerome Simpson for a visit on Wednesday. That was the same day as the team's visit with Ted Ginn. Simpson is a speedy guy who averaged 15.1 yards per catch in his last season playing in the NFL. I say "last season" because it happened to be in 2013. Simpson was suspended for three...
