Breaking down free-agent safety Earl Thomas’ highlights from 2018

Breaking down free-agent safety Earl Thomas’ highlights from 2018

The ex-Seahawks safety seems to have moved on. Could the 49ers be a fit for the 29-year old? With the San Francisco 49ers and Robert Saleh trying to emulate the Seattle Seahawks’ successful defense, they have continued failing at two important positions: edge rusher and free safety. In each of the previous two drafts since installing this defense, fans have loved safeties who get an Earl Thomas comparison — so why not sign the real thing, now that he’s a free agent? A free agent from very same team the 49ers are trying to emulate. Safety Earl Thomas had a tumultuous 2018 on and off...

Opinions differ, but the people Kap & Reid are helping could be the big winners

Opinions differ, but the people Kap & Reid are helping could be the big winners

The takes are coming in. I leave town for a few days, and even though it was not a trip to Las Vegas, we had some big news. I mean, it’s no surprise the 49ers decided to release Garry Gilliam, but still, that came about quickly! That is certainly the most relevant big news during my time in New Orleans, but the bigger story was the NFL reaching an agreement on a settlement former former 49ers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid with regard to their collusion grievances. The settlement is confidential, but the first rumored dollar figure suggested a range of $60 million to $80 million. Bleacher...

Who is the best available player if Nick Bosa goes No. 1?

Who is the best available player if Nick Bosa goes No. 1?

The 49ers biggest need is edge rusher, but is Josh Allen the best player available? The San Francisco 49ers came close to having their pick of anybody in the 2019 NFL Draft. Nick Mullens unexpected emergence as a solid backup option is important, but if Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa goes No. 1 and turns out to be better than his brother, as some suspect is possible, those close late season wins over the Broncos and Seahawks will have some wondering whether or not it was worth it. But that is settled business, and the 49ers are picking No. 2 whether we like it or not. The Cardinals could...
