49ers first round pick Solomon Thomas excited to join Pac 12 players

Solomon Thomas is very familiar with the defensive linemen he will join in Santa Clara It was a very excited Solomon Thomas that spoke to the media via conference call after being selected by the San Francisco 49ers. Thomas will not have to move very far, if at all, after spending his college career down the road from 49ers headquarters while attending Stanford. Being so close to the facility made him a 49ers fan by proxy and as much as he could, Thomas watched 49ers games very closely. Thomas said he has a fan of linebacker NaVorro Bowman as well as former PAC12 opponents Arik Armstead...

49ers’ Bowman not limited after torn Achilles

All-Pro inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who tore his Achilles on Oct. 2, was a full participant at today’s lively minicamp practice. Bowman, who will turn 29 on May 28, was sidelined in 2014 by a horrific injury to his left knee, and his torn Achilles was on the same leg. Without Bowman for the final 12 games last year, the 49ers allowed the sixth-most rushing yards since 1990. The 49ers allowed 122.7 rushing yards a game in three full games with Bowman, and 174.3 in 12 games without him.

NaVorro Bowman offers more on rehab, hunger, and excitement about new scheme

NaVorro Bowman agrees with DeForest Buckner: both expressed their excitement about the change moving to a one gap scheme The San Francisco 49ers defense was less than desirable in 2016 and the hope is that new defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and his scheme will be a catalyst for an improved 2017 season. Both linebacker NaVorro Bowman and defensive lineman DeForest Buckner expressed approval that they would no longer be two gapping on the defensive side of the ball. Buckner’s thoughts: He said it’s more of a one gap control defense. Off the snap I’m not two gapping so I’m not...

Return of 49ers’ Bowman could help make Saleh prophetic

By mid-April, some baseball teams have received their first dose of harsh reality, but those in the NFL remain blissfully optimistic. On Monday, rookie defensive coordinator Robert Saleh indicated he’d be overseeing a unit that would morph from putrid to punishing. The way we align, our demeanor, the responsibility of the defensive players,” Saleh said, “we will stop the run on this defense. Shortly after Saleh left the podium, his spot was assumed by inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman, a run-stuffing savant who missed the final 12 games last year with a torn Achilles tendon. Last...

Colin Kaepernick’s former teammates believe he should play in 2017

Both NaVorro Bowman and Carlos Hyde believe that Kaepernick should be on an NFL roster On the day that quarterbacks T.J Yates signed with Buffalo and and Matt McGloin signed with Philadelphia, two former teammates of Colin Kaepernick expressed their opinions that they thought he thought he should not still be a free agent. There have been rumors that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback could be preventing a deal by looking for a multi year contract, a starting position and a high price tag but none of that has been confirmed. 49ers GM John Lynch said that there was a deal very close...

49ers’ Bowman, Hyde surprised Kaepernick still a free agent

Today, 49ers running back Carlos Hyde and inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman said they figured the quarterback would have found a new team in the four-plus weeks since free agency began on March 9. Seventeen quarterbacks have either signed or been re-signed since the start of free agency, according to Spotrac.com. “I’ve seen some quarterbacks who got signed that, in my opinion, Kap is way better than,” Hyde said. In 11 starts in 2016, Kaepernick had 16 touchdowns, four interceptions and posted his best passer rating (90.7) since 2013.

NaVorro Bowman could be cleared for start of 49ers on-field drills

The 49ers star linebacker is rehabbing his torn Achilles, and appears to be making good progress. The San Francisco 49ers opened their offseason workout program on Monday, but on-field work is restricted to strength and conditioning drills, and rehab work. Nobody but the strength and conditioning coaches and training staff are allowed to work with players on the field these first two weeks. The 49ers will have a voluntary minicamp the week before the draft, leading into the second phase of the offseason workout program. We could see some good news at that stage.
