Fit for the job? Lynch has made strides after awful opening

The NFL’s fourth preseason games are the antithesis of must-see TV, but there’s at least one compelling reason to tune in when the 49ers visit the Texans on Thursday: Aaron Lynch. In the three-plus months since he was drafted in the fifth round, the 49ers outside linebacker has offered evidence that he possess A) some serious work-ethic issues and B) some serious talent. For starters, the bad stuff. Lynch arrived in Santa Clara in May out of shape. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has welcomed rookies who aren’t in top physical condition after traveling the country making pre-draft...

Chemistry lesson: Kaepernick, Stevie Johnson admit their connection isn’t “clicking” yet

Chemistry lesson: Kaepernick, Stevie Johnson admit their connection isn’t “clicking” yet

SANTA CLARA -- When Anquan Boldin arrived last offseason, his connection with Colin Kaepernick was immediate. As early as May OTAs, the two looked like they had been playing together since childhood, and in Week 1 they hooked up 13 times for 208 yards. The 49ers traded a fourth-round pick to Buffalo for Stevie Johnson. The receiver admits his chemistry with Colin Kaepernick is a work in progress. Stevie Johnson had a big game against Richard Sherman and the Seahawks in 2012. Johnson also has had some big outing vs. longtime Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
