San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke has stated before that he believes wide receiver A.J. Jenkins needs to get in the weight room and add some muscle. “If there’s an area where A.J.’s got to get better in, it’s called the weight room, and he will,” Baalke said, per the Sacramento Bee. “He’s had some unfortunate situations that haven’t allowed him to fully attack the weight room in the offseason. Once he gets in there and figures out how to be a pro receiver – which we’re very confident we can help him along in that area – we feel we’ve got a very good player. A very good fit for this system.” It sounds like Jenkins looks a lot different this offseason.  Fellow receiver Ricardo Lockette sees a big difference. “I think A.J. will definitely surprise a lot of people this year. Last year, he took it as a building year,” siad Lockette. “This year from what I’ve seen so far, it’s night and day. I expect big things out of him. He expects big things out of himself, and Kap expects big things out of him. I think Niner nation and the Niner empire will be proud of what A.J. Jenkins brings to the field this year.” “From what we heard, (Jenkins) was not a real big weight room guy coming in, but he did a great job. He definitely showed progress,” said  Aaron Roberts of CES Performance. The 49ers need someone to step up as a third reciever with Kyle Williams and Mario Manningham coming off of ACL surgery. It’s time for Jenkins to step up.   Need NFL Tickets? The post 49ers’ A.J. Jenkins have bulked up this offseason appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
