Dez Bryant posts, removes Instagram comment saying he wants to join the 49ers

Dez Bryant posts, removes Instagram comment saying he wants to join the 49ers

Considering no one has signed him, he may just want to go anywhere at this point. Dez Bryant has been a free agent for a little over a month now and who was once thought to be a nice signing to a wide receiver-needy team is now maybe looking a job anywhere willing. Well, if he has a choice, he may want to play for the San Francisco 49ers. Someone found a comment he made on Instagram saying he wanted to play for the 49ers, the comment was quickly deleted. Luckily, we have a photo: lol pic.twitter.com/yHPXnLfH6R— Anthony Licciardi (@ALicc_Scout) May 26, 2018 There’s not much...

What burning question faces the 49ers now?

What burning question faces the 49ers now?

It was all about what would happen to Reuben Foster, but now that many of his charges are dismissed and a smaller suspension likely, what’s next for the team? Reuben Foster had himself a quite a week. He had his domestic violence charge dropped, his marijuana charge dismissed, and his gun charge reduced to a misdemeanor. Going into the week, his status on the 49ers was in question and if put through a lengthy trial along with an also lengthy suspension, he was one of the more crucial question marks the 49ers faced. NFL.com posted a story on one burning question each team faced and...

90-in-90: WR Marquise Goodwin

90-in-90: WR Marquise Goodwin

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. If Jimmy Garoppolo was the number one breakout star of 2017, Marquise Goodwin was definitely 1b. He won the hearts of many 49ers fans after a touching exchange with Austin DeMello, a young fan suffering from a brain tumor. Late in the season, Goodwin suffered the loss of both a parent and a child in the span of a month. After each loss Goodwin was adamant about playing, endearing him even more to the fan base. On the field, Goodwin’s season was a tale of...

Report: 49ers sold $100,000 in throwback jerseys

Report: 49ers sold $100,000 in throwback jerseys

Looks like those jerseys are a big hit. There are many ways to find out if something was a success, but nothing says anything more than the almighty dollar. ESPN’s Darren Rovell is reporting the San Francisco 49ers sold $100,000 worth of their new throwback jerseys sold between Wednesday evening (when introduced) and Thursday. It’s safe to say the throwback jerseys are a hit. Garoppolo led the charge with 63 percent of jerseys sold, but the followers may surprise you. Besides Richard Sherman, the other big sellers were Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Deion Sanders, three people with the...

Could Jimmy G regress?

Could Jimmy G regress?

He’s signed a nice deal and had only seven starts, so could history repeat itself? This is about to be the most unpopular opinion ever. What happens if Jimmy Garoppolo regresses? It’s been a question for a while and something more so after NFL network had a quick video on how he’s going to be under a lot of pressure in 2018. Make no mistake, Jimmy Garoppolo was very impressive for a few games, but so was Scott Mitchell, Matt Cassel, heck, you could probably lump Austin Davis into this. The quarterbacks named above have had great early success, some even thinking with development...

Does anyone else miss the red on white?

Does anyone else miss the red on white?

If we’re going to do a throwback, did we do it right? Not gonna lie, those new throwback uniforms for the San Francisco 49ers are pretty slick. Sure, the red and black ones eschewed all sorts of awesomeness only a 90s kid like yours truly could appreciate (well, one who listened to a bunch of metal and punk bands), especially when red and black are my favorite colors, but it really didn’t feel like a 49ers jersey. Now, white with that cool shadow number, nothing says 90s, throwback, and awesomeness like that. Except I was hoping for red jersey on white pants, the original home...

DeForest Buckner thinks Solomon Thomas is ready for a break out season

DeForest Buckner thinks Solomon Thomas is ready for a break out season

There is a lot of pressure on first round picks - Buckner thinks Thomas will Expectations for the third over pick of the 2017 draft were sky high but Solomon Thomas had the cards stacked against him. He missed rookie minicamp because of the school rule that has since been changed. He was moved from the interior of the offensive line, where he excelled at Stanford, to the edge. Thomas registered three sacks, a fumble recovery and 41 tackles over the 14 games he played in with the 49ers and started in 12. While those stats aren’t abysmal, they aren’t what 49ers fans were expecting from...

Golden Nuggets: Reuben Foster had a good week

Golden Nuggets: Reuben Foster had a good week

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, May 26th, 2018 So Reuben Foster only has a gun charge reduced to a misdemeanor and that’s it? At the beginning of the week he was looking at felony charges for domestic violence, and a case in Alabama over possession of Marijuana. I’d say he had a pretty good week. Good luck playing 16 games though. Now that he’s (almost) finished with the judges, he now has to go deal with the commissioner, Roger Goodell. There’s no way with a violation for possession marijuana, among other things, Foster isn’t suspended. Now, with everything getting...

Joe Show, OTA singing edition!

Joe Show, OTA singing edition!

We get to see some singing from Mike McGlinchey, Jimmy Garoppolo, Matt Breida, D.J. Jones. And Jones offers quite the Solomon Thomas impression. The Joe Show is back for its second episode of the year! This time, we get nearly 12 minutes of fun times. You can watch the whole video above, or click here if you can’t see it. It’s longer than usual, and there’s plenty to enjoy. There’s a bit of a singing theme this time around. Staley opens with Mike McGlinchey and gets the rookie to sing some Disney songs. He eventually moves on to Jimmy Garoppolo and the quarterback shows off his...

Check out your first shot of Richard Sherman with the 49ers in Madden 19

Check out your first shot of Richard Sherman with the 49ers in Madden 19

The folks at EA Sports have dropped some early Madden 19 assets, and it includes some 49ers connections. Earlier today, we learned that Terrell Owens would appear on the cover of the “Hall of Fame” edition of Madden 19. It’s good, except for the part where he is in Dallas Cowboys apparel. EA Sports also released the picture above showing Richard Sherman in his 49ers uniform. It’s not a huge deal, but I figured it was worth a share. How many folks are going to buy Madden this year? Are they even making enough changes to make it worth adding the latest version?

Jerick McKinnon talks little man syndrome, Big Chicken, Jimmy G

Jerick McKinnon talks little man syndrome, Big Chicken, Jimmy G

The 49ers running back had an extensive conversation with Matt Maiocco on a WIDE range of topics. The San Francisco 49ers signed running back Jerick McKinnon this offseason, thinking he is a perfect fit for the system. We’ll see plenty of work for Matt Breida and maybe Joe Williams and Raheem Mostert, but Kyle Shanahan has made it pretty clear that McKinnon is the lead guy. McKinnon recently sat down with Matt Maiocco for a lengthy conversation that turned out to be a lot of fun (audio here if you can’t listen above). McKinnon talked about the 49ers recruiting him in free agency, and...

Photos from the 49ers 2018 State of the Franchise event

When you think of the San Francisco 49ers during the 80’s and 90’s most people think of the championships. For 49ers fans they remember the family aspect of the organization Eddie DeBartolo brought more than championships to the organization. He brought the feel of love towards people. The 49ers State of the Franchise event brings the fan base closer to what the organization is doing new each year — not to mention introducing some of the new rookies and vets on the team as well. Last year, the 49ers introduced the State of the Franchise event, and it was back this past Wednesday....

Reuben Foster marijuana possession charge dismissed after diversion class

Reuben Foster marijuana possession charge dismissed after diversion class

One more legal issue off the table, but no word on the NFL’s plan. The Tuscaloosa District Attorney announced on Friday that a marijuana possession charge against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been dismissed, per Matt Barrows. Foster completed a diversion course in Alabama, which resulted in the dismissal. He also had to pay court costs and a $100 bail bond fee, per Tom Pelissero. This follows Wednesday’s news that a Santa Clara judge dismissed the domestic violence and criminal threats charges against Foster. The only remaining charge is a weapons possession charge....

90-in-90: RB Matt Breida

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is running back Matt Breida. The 49ers hit undrafted gold in 2017 with Matt Breida. The top athlete in 2017’s running back class brought solid college production to a talent-starved group of running backs. While at Georgia Southern, Breida the Cheetah’s breakaway percentage was second to Dalvin Cook, and he averaged as many yards after contact as Leonard Fournette. Throughout the season Breida was the more efficient back despite playing just 28 percent of the offensive snaps. Breida ended...

Terrell Owens to appear on Madden 19 special Hall of Fame cover in wrong uniform

Derp. Former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Terrell Owens will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this summer, and that is bringing with it a special treat. Madden 19 will feature a special Hall of Fame edition, and TO got the choice for the cover. Only one problem, he is wearing decidedly the wrong jersey for it.
