Golden Nuggets: LBs in 2018 and Beyond

Golden Nuggets: LBs in 2018 and Beyond

A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the internet. Monday, June 18th, 2018 edition. Over the past couple of season, the 49ers have seemingly been snakebitten at the inside linebacker position. Year after year, the team has ended the season with special teamers and free agents starting by the end of the season, which has likely contributed to the fielding of middling (and worse) defenses. This year, however, things are certainly looking up. The return of Malcolm Smith from his 2017 injury, the clearing of Reuben Foster’s name, the drafting of Fred Warner, the signing of Korey...

90-in-90: LB Brock Coyle

90-in-90: LB Brock Coyle

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is linebacker Brock Coyle. Brock Coyle was brought to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 as an obvious special teams option. After all, that’s basically all he did with the Seattle Seahawks beyond a bit of linebacker play. The positive was he was familiar with the defense 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh brought, having come from Seattle as well. Well, special teams wasn’t all Coyle was used for. The NaVorro Bowman release, Malcolm Smith injury and Reuben Foster injuries were enough...

Foster’s position coaches are glad to have him back

The 49ers linebacker has had issues offseason, but his coaches have his back.

Reuben Foster and Fred Warner practice on first team ILB

The 49ers got their first look at the future with Reuben Foster and Fred Warner practicing side by side. 49ers OTAs were open to the media Tuesday and one of the many reports coming out was that 49ers linebacker Malcolm Smith did not practice.

Smith’s injury wasn’t disclosed, so we don’t know how long he will be out, but this was definitely a look at the future. The 49ers drafted Fred Warner in the...

Fred Warner could build himself a significant role quickly

Fred Warner could build himself a significant role quickly

The 49ers rookie linebacker is impressing in OTAs. The San Francisco 49ers faced a big decision at linebacker this offseason following Reuben Foster’s two arrests. The situation is clearing itself up, but there was an expectation by many prior to the draft that they would make a sizable investment in the linebacker position. Roquan Smith and Tremaine Edmunds were the most common names mentioned, but when the 49ers did select a linebacker, it ended up Fred Warner as a third round pick. If Foster is suspended for any period of time, Warner could slot into a significant role pretty quickly....

Photos from 49ers second open OTA session!

The photo gallery is updated and there is pictures galore. One of the many downsides to the offseason is the lack of new pictures in our photo editor. We have a lot of pictures of 49ers players, but for the more recent additions, there are just not that many. We are recirculating all sorts of the same stuff, particularly for someone like Reuben Foster who was in the news a lot. But Wednesday brought us the reprieve. The 49ers held their second open practice of OTAs, and the USA Today Sports Images team was on hand to shoot the session. They got 34 shots of practice, and I have put them...

Trotter: 49ers taking their time with Reuben Foster to avoid soft-tissue injury

The 49ers welcomed him back during Week 1 of OTAs. He is playing catch-up on the strength and conditioning side of the program. The San Francisco 49ers welcomed linebacker Reuben Foster back to the offseason workout program last week, and on Wednesday, we got our first glimpses of him. Foster worked with the strength and conditioning team, and did individual drills. However, he did not take part in the team drills portion. Foster missed the first two phases of the offseason workout program, and so the team is effectively putting him through a shortened version of that. Defensive coordinator...
