Bradley Pinion is the best combo kicker in the NFL

Bradley Pinion is the best combo kicker in the NFL

Now we wait and see if he can work out a contract extension with the 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers head into the 2018 season with a strong trio of specialists. Kicker Robbie Gould was money kicking field goals last year. Long snapper Kyle Nelson was rarely mentioned — a good thing for a long snapper — other than getting downfield for a fumble recovery. And then there’s punter Bradley Pinion. The 49ers surprised a lot of us when they spent a fifth round pick on Pinion in the 2015 NFL Draft, and then proceeded to trade Andy Lee to the Cleveland Browns. Since then, Pinion has developed...

90-in-90: S Jaquiski Tartt

90-in-90: S Jaquiski Tartt

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is safety Jaquiski Tartt. Jaquiski Tartt is one of a couple of late Trent Baalke draft picks that 49ers fans, much to their distaste, have to be grateful for. Drafted out of Samford in the second round of the 2015 draft, Tartt has developed into an incredibly versatile option at safety and is a perfect fit in the 49ers’ defense under Robert Saleh. He was rewarded for his breakout 2017 season with a two-year contract extension, as the 49ers’ brass kept a player they were clearly high on but...

National revenue sharing was $255 million last year

National revenue sharing was $255 million last year

A cool quarter billion just to show up. The Green Bay Packers are the only publicly owned NFL team, and with that comes the requirement that they disclose their financial statements each year. Most of the numbers are specific to the organization, but there is one number that is of interest to all 32 NFL teams: the national revenue. Sports teams sell tickets, concessions, and merchandise, but the real money for a lot of NFL teams is the national television contract. The 49ers are on the high end for ticket revenue given their new stadium, but the national television deal is still a big...

Early 49ers-Vikings money is on Minnesota

Early 49ers-Vikings money is on Minnesota

Kirk Cousins is an upgrade, and the betting public probably likes that. The San Francisco 49ers open the 2018 regular season as a road underdog against the Minnesota Vikings. The 49ers opened as a 4.5 point underdog, not exactly a surprise given the Vikings strong 2017 season that came up just short of the Super Bowl. Oh, and they signed Kirk Cousins this offseason to replace Case Keenum. Cousins has his share of question marks, but that is an upgrade at the most important position on the field. It is no surprise then that offseason money is coming in on the Vikings. Oddsmaker William Hill...

90-in-90: OT Mike McGlinchey

90-in-90: OT Mike McGlinchey

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is OT Mike McGlinchey. One of the biggest issues with the 2017 San Francisco 49ers offense was the performance of their offensive line. In fact, the unit has been in a downward spiral since the conclusion of the 2013 season, when dependable, if not unspectacular, center Jonathan Goodwin was technically the weakest link on the line. Since then, a revolving door of poor draft selections, poor free agent signings, and poor trades have left the unit as a whole scrambling just to scrape the bottom...

Could Richard Sherman have been a Minnesota Viking?

Could Richard Sherman have been a Minnesota Viking?

Apparently it was something that he considered A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Minnesota Vikings star cornerback Xavier Rhodes was part of a group of cornerbacks that were working out together on the West Coast. One of his workout partners was former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman was released by the Seahawks back in March, and soon after signed with the San Francisco 49ers. While the Vikings weren’t reported to have shown any interest in Sherman when he was released, it sounds like Sherman was certainly interested in the Vikings. According to a column from...
