Grading 49ers NFL Draft addition Marcell Harris and considering where he’ll be a year from now

Grading 49ers NFL Draft addition Marcell Harris and considering where he’ll be a year from now

Time to grade every 49ers roster addition from the 2018 offseason. Today, we look at rookie safety Marcell Harris. The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up the 2018 season and they have begun their work to prepare for 2019 free agency and the NFL draft. The coaches and scouts are back from a week in Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl, but there is plenty more to be done as they get ready to build on a disappointing 2018 campaign. We’ll be breaking down plenty of what that means, but in the meantime, we wanted to take a look back at the season that was for the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury...

Why the San Francisco 49ers should aggressively pursue Le’Veon Bell

Why the San Francisco 49ers should aggressively pursue Le’Veon Bell

The San Francisco 49ers last season came into the year with a lot of hope. It seemed like a turn of a new era. They had Jimmy Garoppolo healthy and the team finally seemed to be prepared for a playoff run. However, they didn’t meet their expectations. Garrapolo got hurt three games into the season. […] The post Why the San Francisco 49ers should aggressively pursue Le’Veon Bell appeared first on ClutchPoints.

How much will the 49ers roster change over the next 4 years?

How much will the 49ers roster change over the next 4 years?

The 49ers have three players potentially signed through 2022. Time to consider who will be around when that time arrives. The San Francisco 49ers will be busy this offseason, further shaping a roster that is improving, but has a host of issues to address before it can develop into a Super Bowl contender. If Jimmy Garoppolo can play a full 16 games, this team will likely be in the mix for a playoff berth. How they address other issues on both sides of the ball will give us a handle on where this team is going beyond that. However, today I wanted to consider the long term outlook. The longest...

Golden Nuggets: AB requests trade

Golden Nuggets: AB requests trade

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet Steelers’ receiver Antonio Brown formally requested a trade from Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Antonio will draw a lot of interest in his services because he is one of the top receivers in the game. It’s also no secret that the 49ers would be one of the most interested teams in acquiring AB. Putting him in an offense run by Kyle Shanahan with Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle would be a dream scenario for the 49ers. The problem with AB is all the noise that comes...

Today marks the anniversary of Jimmy Garoppolo signing his contract extension

Today marks the anniversary of Jimmy Garoppolo signing his contract extension

We have entered a quiet period of the NFL season leading up to the NFL Combine. However, a year ago, things were not so quiet on this day. On February 8, 2018, Jimmy Garoppolo agreed to terms on a five-year contract worth up to $137.5 million. Garoppolo mentioned it on Instagram, and apparently Mike McGlinchey wanted to make sure Garoppolo knew his right tackle was thinking of him.

Jimmy Garoppolo cap figure drops from No. 1 to No. 22 in 2019

Jimmy Garoppolo cap figure drops from No. 1 to No. 22 in 2019

The 49ers did good work in structuring Jimmy Garoppolo’s contract. The San Francisco 49ers have had some extensive cap space the past few seasons, and they were aggressive in how they chose to use it in 2018. The team gave out signing bonuses to some players, but some of their bigger contracts used roster bonuses in year one. Both are paid out up front, but the difference comes in cap account. A signing bonus prorates over the life of a contract (or five years, whichever is shorter) for cap purposes, while a roster bonus impacts the cap only on the year it is paid. The biggest contract...

The 49ers will be looking for some wide receiver depth this offseason. Maybe they look nearby? Over the next few months we will analyze positions of needs for the San Francisco 49ers. What position is key? What positions can be addressed in free agency versus the draft? The position that jumps out is wide receiver. Outside of the trade market, the receivers available in free agency are slim, so could the draft be the 49ers opportunity to add a playmaker for Jimmy Garoppolo? The 2019 wide receiver draft unit is an interesting one to say the least. Players like DK Metcalf, Marquise...

Trent Taylor talks George Kittle, Jimmy Garoppolo’s date, and Kyle Shanahan

Jimmy Garoppolo is the coolest dude ever. When we think of Trent Taylor we automatically pair him with George Kittle, as Trent is the other half of the duo known as Quality Time. Trent and George are no strangers to the Simms and Lefkoe show as they appeared earlier in the season and even had a little Jenga match with them during Super Bowl weekend.

Russell Wilson has had no contract discussions with Seahawks as he enters final year of deal

Russell Wilson has had no contract discussions with Seahawks as he enters final year of deal

The Seahawks have the cap space to get deals done with him and Bobby Wagner. The Seahawks stumbled this past season, but still managed to put together a 10-6 record and a wild card berth. Entering the 2018 season, most of us thought the 49ers would finish ahead of them, but Jimmy Garoppolo’s torn ACL shook all that up. Now that Garoppolo will be back, the competition is on for who will compete with the Rams for the division crown. However, things could get shaky for the Seahawks after this coming season. The team heads into the offseason with quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker...

ESPN power rankings are conservative with 49ers heading into 2019

ESPN power rankings are conservative with 49ers heading into 2019

There is plenty of reason for optimism, however. The offseason is upon us, and naturally that brings the proverbial “way-too-early” NFL power rankings. ESPN decided to kick things off by ranking teams and then including a reason for optimism. The 49ers were ranked No. 23, the first sign the World Wide Leader would be conservative about the team ... for the time being. Reason for optimism: A healthy Jimmy Garoppolo. The Niners entered 2018 with a lot of buzz about a quick turnaround from the 6-10 record they posted in 2017, but most of that optimism vanished when Garoppolo tore an ACL in...

49ers open in the middle of the pack in Super Bowl 54 odds

This should change once Jimmy Garoppolo gets back on the field. We might be less than 12 hours removed from Super Bowl 53’s yawn-inducing conclusion, but it’s already time to start looking ahead to Super Bowl 54! Several sportsbooks posted preliminary 2020 Super Bowl odds in mid-January, but the conclusion of last night’s game has everybody diving in to get ready for the NFL’s 100th anniversary season. There will be plenty more Super Bowl futures odds coming along, but here are the first four I’ve seen. Bovada: 45/1 (favorite: Patriots 13/2, longest: Dolphins 300/1)Westgate: 50/1...

Super Bowl 53 game thread

60 minutes of football left in the 2018 season. It’s game time! Super Bowl 53 kicks off at 3:30 p.m. PT on CBS, officially wrapping up the 2018 season. The San Francisco 49ers season was a wrap a month ago, and we are plenty ready to move on to 2019 and a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo. We’ll have plenty to track this offseason, but in the meantime, there’s one more NFL game to go! The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are squaring off for the Lombardi Trophy at Mercedes-Ben Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Patriots are a 2.5-point favorite, with a sizable majority of betting money...

George Kittle tweeted at Antonio Brown on a dare from Jimmy Garoppolo

George Kittle tweeted at Antonio Brown on a dare from Jimmy Garoppolo

I have no doubt Kittle and Garoppolo high-fived after Brown responded to the tweet. The San Francisco 49ers have been regularly connected to wide receiver Antonio Brown, and it seems unlikely that will change until either a trade happens or the Steelers formally shut down any trade discussions. Brown’s situation has been an evolving one, with Jerry Rice saying he passed along Brown’s interest to 49ers GM John Lynch. However, before all that, tight end George Kittle launched the recruiting process. He tweeted at Brown on New Years’ Eve, and on Thursday, Kittle offered an amusing reason...
