Tomlinson showed improvement as the season progressed

Tomlinson showed improvement as the season progressed

He can likely thank Jimmy G, but Tomlinson also showed signs of progress before Garoppolo took over. The San Francisco 49ers signed guard Laken Tomlinson to a three-year contract extension on Friday, inking him through 2021. The deal is reportedly worth up to $18 million with $10 million in guarantees, but we do not have full details quite yet. There have been a variety of responses to the decision to extend Tomlinson. Once we have contract figures we’ll run a poll to see how people feel about it. The dollars are really what will inform us of this deal. Tomlinson struggled early in the...

49ers sign guard Laken Tomlinson to three-year extension

The 49ers secured one of their key protectors of franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Friday, signing left guard Laken Tomlinson to a three-year contract extension. A first-round pick by Detroit in 2015, Tomlinson was acquired by the 49ers on Aug. 31 for a 2019 fifth-round pick. He started the final 15 games of last season. The 49ers chose not to exercise the fifth-year option this spring on Tomlinson, which would have paid him $9.6 million in 2019. But general manager John Lynch at the time stated the team’s interest in signing Tomlinson to an...

What does Jimmy Garoppolo scream at the line?

What does Jimmy Garoppolo scream at the line?

Anyone else want to take a stab at this? Over the last few months, I’ve been racking my brain against this, even asking some of the staff their thoughts and getting similar confusion: What exactly is Jimmy Garoppolo screaming for his cadence? For those of you unfamiliar with the term, cadence is what the quarterback says before the snap. It can be a number of things but there’s usually a consistent rhythmic and familiar set of words that initiate the snap (or throw defenses offsides once they get used to it). For instance, Aaron Rodgers’ is “Green 19...Green 19 set-hut” (or 319,...

Will DeForest Buckner go through the franchise tag game?

Will DeForest Buckner go through the franchise tag game?

There is no rush on this, but maybe the Jimmy Garoppolo situation is instructive. We are very much in the dead period of the NFL offseason. The close of minicamp meant six weeks until training camp got going. During that six weeks, the NFL has the Supplemental Draft on July 11th and the franchise tag deadline set for July 16th. The Supplemental Draft rarely results in a player being selected, and the franchise tag deadline rarely results in a contract extension. That being said, the franchise tag deadline did get me thinking. San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle DeForest Buckner is entering...

C.J. Beathard’s run in the preseason brings back memories

C.J. Beathard’s run in the preseason brings back memories

Ok, maybe it isn’t much, but it certainly brought a lot of hope for the 49ers. My what a difference a year makes. In the 2017 offseason the 49ers didn’t have much at quarterback. They had Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard. Now, all that changed with the trade of Jimmy Garoppolo, but really, who saw THAT coming? In the 2017 preseason, Beathard impressed. I’ve said a lot of his performance wouldn’t be anything to write home about with a veteran, but with a rookie doing what he did, it was impressive. Argue that with me all you want, he was ahead of the game at his current standing in...

Kyle Shanahan ranks middle of the pack until he gets more experience

Kyle Shanahan ranks middle of the pack until he gets more experience

Thinking he might improve after this year! The San Francisco 49ers have one year under their belt with head coach Kyle Shanahan, and it was hard not to come away impressed. The team started slowly, but finished strong after acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo at the trade deadline. It’s easy to focus on winning six of their final seven games, but Shanahan deserves credit for keeping the team focused even as they were losing nine straight to open the season. Although things went well, it has still only been one year. It is no surprise then that Shanahan is not getting a ton of love in head coach...

90-in-90: QB Jimmy Garoppolo

90-in-90: QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. As you may have heard, the San Francisco 49ers made a pretty major trade last season and ended up with a full-fledged starting quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo left the cold of New England for the sunny West Coast, and things have been looking up in Santa Clara ever since. Garoppolo came in and won the last five games of the season, improving the Niners’ record to 6-10 and his personal NFL starting record to 7-0. In those five games, plus the last minute of...

Golden Nuggets: Tomlinson extended

Golden Nuggets: Tomlinson extended

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, June 23rd 2018 So the big news of the day (and the week by extension) is that the San Francisco 49ers have extended Laken Tomlinson. Well, he got better with Jimmy Garoppolo starting, and as we all know, Garoppolo is going to continue starting through 2018. The 49ers offensive line is definitely a question mark, but thank goodness they gave Tomlinson what they did instead of his atrocious option. It looks like he’ll be starting in 2018, but if things don’t work out, it won’t be as bad of a hit as it would be picking up a guaranteed option....
