Colin Kaepernick in 2012 only had one viable wideout in Michael Crabtree; however, with the addition of Anquan Boldin, he now has a pair. Gone is the soft play of Randy Moss, soft routes and weak over the middle. Boldin is the exact opposite, a tough as nails receiver who just gets it done. He isn’t the highest jumper, the fastest runner, but he is one of the toughest pass...

The trade was delayed because Boldin was over in Senegal for a relief trip.

Kicking was an issue for the San Francisco 49ers last season; surprising considering that they had one of the best in the game, David Akers, on the roster. Every player--kickers including--eventually have a fall from grace. Maybe last season was it for Akers.
Anyway...rather than go with an untested rookie or nobody the team ended up tabbing another older veteran to take over...
Season SummaryThe 49ers had a tremendous 2012-13 season, riding a great second half from QB Colin Kaepernick all the way to an NFC title. After making the switch to Kaepernick from Alex Smith midway through the season, the 49ers offense really took off with the addition of a big play threat. San Francisco’s defense also excelled, ranking fourth in the league in both rushing and...
The 49ers on Tuesday welcomed wide receiver Marlon Moore to the family on a one-year contract. Try to contain your excitement.
Moore, 25, spent the last three seasons in Miami, where he played primarily in coverage units on special teams. The Niners are expected to use him in the same capacity, though the possibility is open that he could be seen returning kicks.

The local rags/sports talk are up in arms because not only one, but two of the undoubtedly stand up guys are as of this week are no longer calling themselves Cleveland Browns.
