Kaepernick’s attorney: ‘1 of 3 [NFL] teams picks him up’

Kaepernick’s attorney: ‘1 of 3 [NFL] teams picks him up’

Kap might get another shot. That was all he wanted in the first place. Kaepernick’s lawsuit against the NFL may be over, but the desire to play quarterback in that very same league continues. Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, appeared on a CNN segment to discuss whatever he could (due to the confidentiality of the settlement) about what the future holds for Kaepernick and is optimistic that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback could take snaps under center. “I’m going to make a bold prediction,” Geragos said, “one of three teams pick him up.” What are those three...

Golden Nuggets: Not A “Kaepernick Thread”

Golden Nuggets: Not A “Kaepernick Thread”

A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the net. Sunday, February 17th, 2019 edition. Good morning folks, things have quieted down since a raucous end-of-the-week, where roster moves were made, 49ers-adjacent rumors and reports were swirling around, and the latest installment of the always-popular “Kaepernick Thread” was released for everyone rip each other’s eyeballs out over. Saturday’s news, on the other hand, was quite mild in comparison. A fistful-of-salt report was made by Mike Florio of the frequently-criticized Pro Football Talk, in which he concluded that Antonio...

Jerick McKinnon is “Ready”

Jerick McKinnon is “Ready”

He’s ready Welcome to the offseason. The good news with it being slow for San Francisco 49ers news is that we get to have some discussions on free agents and the NFL at large. When there is anything 49ers related to add a discussion, or make you optimistic at the very least, you can bet we’ll get it. Well, it doesn’t get more optimistic than this: I’m ready— Jerick Mckinnon (@JetMckinnon1) February 16, 2019 Why that’s Jerick McKinnon chiming in. What is he ready for? We can all speculate. There hasn’t been any official word on if McKinnon is cleared for aggressive...

Ian Rapoport gives a list of pass rushers to be franchised, 49ers can look to the draft

Ian Rapoport gives a list of pass rushers to be franchised, 49ers can look to the draft

Hope no one is getting their hopes up on getting any of them. On Tuesday February 19, NFL teams can start putting the franchise tag on their players. The San Francisco 49ers are going to be in the market for a pass rusher be it free agency or the draft, and Ian Rapoport gave a list of those top pass rushers that could get the tag. Per Rapoport, Jadeveon Clowney, DeMarcus Lawrence, Dee Ford, and Frank Clark are all going to be issued the franchise tag at some point. Those are the top pass rushers in free agency and they are all about to be unavailable. The NFL has until March 5 to issue...

Antonio Brown is holding an AMA

Antonio Brown is holding an AMA

Grab some popcorn. Just when you think Antonio Brown Watch can’t get crazy enough, we now have the star wide receiver hosting an AMA. For those of you not familiar, an AMA is short for “Ask Me Anything” and revolves around the organizer heading to a social media source (Reddit, Twitter, etc.) and doing just as the name suggests. Because Brown has become a hot trade candidate for the San Francisco 49ers, and the entire situation is curious, I’m going to start a post that I’ll update as more questions come piling out. I’ll do my best to get some context on everything as we go on....

AAF Week 2 Saturday open thread

AAF Week 2 Saturday open thread

Let’s see if we can keep getting that good football in the NFL offseason. The AAF did us a favor by not just giving us football, but watchable football. They shocked me and others last week with a product that wasn’t half bad. So now the AAF enters Week 2 and we have a Saturday thread for both games. Depending on activity, we may make a second thread, but for now, consider this the thread for both games. First up is the Salt Lake Stallions at the Birmingham Irons. If there was any complaint to make about these games, it was the quarterback play. Unless you watched Birmingham’s Luis...

Report: Cardinals may cut DT Robert Nkemdiche

Report: Cardinals may cut DT Robert Nkemdiche

In a recent podcast appearance, Draft Analyst writer Tony Pauline says he’s heard some rumblings that Nkemdiche will not be in the Cardinals plans for 2019. Nick Bosa fans, rejoice! Could the Arizona Cardinals have an even greater need for an interior lineman? In an appearance on Bleave’s podcast, Draft Analyst writer Troy Pauline went over a recent mock draft where he mocked Quinnen Williams to the Cardinals at No. 1. The reason? He’s heard the Cardinals will cut 2016 first round pick, defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche. “The other factor that played into the choice was a tip I...

PFF projects Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Shaquil Barrett to 49ers in free agency

Well then... NFL free agency is less than a month away we now get to start looking at projections to the San Francisco 49ers. We’ve already gone position by position with who’s available, now it’s time to narrow the playing field. The folks over at Pro Football Focus projected a few names to the 49ers and they may not be who you’d expect. It’s safety Ha-Ha Clinton Dix and linebacker Shaquil Barrett. No, Earl Thomas doesn’t get projected to the 49ers. He doesn’t go to the Dallas Cowboys either, PFF has him going to the Green Bay Packers. So Clinton-Dix and Barrett. Here’s...

Golden Nuggets: Kaepernick and Reid’s lawsuit concludes

Golden Nuggets: Kaepernick and Reid’s lawsuit concludes

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, February 16th 2019 What a day. In case you missed it, the collusion lawsuit brought forth by Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid has finally ended in a settlement. Details are confidential, but it looks like no ugly courtroom drama will be drawn out for either side. I’m not going to go into the politics of the move because, quite honestly, I’m a terrible lawyer and the closest thing I have to legal counsel, one David Fucillo, is in New Orleans doing...well...whatever the hell Fooch does when he’s not here. From the looks of things, the NFL...

Kyle Brandt says 49ers could go from worst to first

Kyle Brandt says 49ers could go from worst to first

Things are always better when the Good Morning Football group talks about the Niners It’s been a strange day hasn’t it? Well, I saw this pop into my Twitter feed and it left me with a smile, so I figured I’d let everyone enjoy the awesomeness that is Good Morning Football. The NFL Network tried the AM football show thing with the aptly named NFL AM, but something was just not right with the show—it wasn’t bad, just off for lack of a better word. Good Morning Football has that sort of charm (to me anyways) that makes it entertaining, even if you don’t agree with some of the...

Should the 49ers look at Glover Quin or Charles Clay?

Should the 49ers look at Glover Quin or Charles Clay?

There are some options here. NFL free agency is less than a month away, which means teams are now looking at their current roster and making decisions both for roster and salary cap space. There were some releases on Friday and they have some intriguing names. Detroit Lions safety Glover Quin was released while the Buffalo Bills released tight end Charles Clay. Both may yet find a roster. Could they fit on the 49ers? Glover Quin A 10-year veteran, Quin has had some productive seasons, but none compare to his monstrous 2014 with the Lions where he notched seven interceptions. He’s also...

Grading 49ers NFL Draft addition Marcell Harris and considering where he’ll be a year from now

Time to grade every 49ers roster addition from the 2018 offseason. Today, we look at rookie safety Marcell Harris. The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up the 2018 season and they have begun their work to prepare for 2019 free agency and the NFL draft. The coaches and scouts are back from a week in Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl, but there is plenty more to be done as they get ready to build on a disappointing 2018 campaign. We’ll be breaking down plenty of what that means, but in the meantime, we wanted to take a look back at the season that was for the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury...
