(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer With so much talent returning on defense, several San Francisco 49ers players have taken advantage of an intriguing new resource in training camp: newcomer Anquan Boldin.
The versatile wide receiver said Friday that curiosity has simmered from his defensive teammates about how opponents scheme against the unit since he joined the 49ers this offseason. And nobody in practice might know better than Boldin, who caught six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown to help the Baltimore Ravens beat San Francisco 34-31 in the Super Bowl.
''A lot of guys came up to me and asked me, `What did the scouting report have on it? What did it say?''' Boldin said. ''Things like that. I've had a chance to communicate that to guys.''
While he's not going to make those schemes public knowledge, Boldin has passed along that information to teammates while doing his own job catching passes from Colin Kae...

San Francisco 49ers DT Justin Smith says he's fully recovered from the painful partially torn triceps he suffered last season, taking part in training camp as if it never happened.
"We don't have a lot more time, so I'm ready to go, and it feels great," Smith said, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said cornerback Eric Wright is still an option for the team.
Baalke traded for the troubled defensive back from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; however, Wright failed his physical.
Wright is a free agent and the team is looking for defensive backs so there is always a possibility the team will bring him back in.

However, there are some questions about the defense that will be answered when the real games start. The concerns are mostly in the secondary, as the front...

The four-time All-Pro cornerback felt right at home Saturday as the San Francisco 49ers practiced in pads for the first time in training camp, using the size and press-coverage skills that made him a star during his first stint in the Bay Area.
