49ers punter Andy Lee is apparently working on a 'knuckle punt.' Now, why he'd tell anyone he was working on a such a kick could simply be so that every returner is thinking they might have to deal with said punt but...whatever:
“It’s definitely something I want to do in a game to see how it actually happens in a live situation,” Lee said. “In practice, you can do things and you can mimic as much as you can, but you never really know how a new thing you’re going to do is going to react in a game situation. So I’d love to hopefully be able to pull it out and try it and see if it’s something I can work in my regular routine.”
Kyle Williams vividly remembers the first time Lee sent a knuckle punt his way. It came during a special teams practice his rookie year.
“I turned to Ted Ginn and said, ‘What the hell was that?’” Williams said. “It’s just like a knuckleball in baseball. It’s floating up there, and it will change direction probably three or four times within the last 5 yards, 10 yards, and then it’s right there. It’s tough to deal with.”

Listen, I know there have been a lot (and I mean A LOT) of controversial, ignorant, and just plain idiotic tweets in the handful of years that Twitter has been a social media powerhouse but, in my opinion, the one Brian Westbrook delivered yesterday takes the cake:

Matt Barrows reports that a league source has informed him that the 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace following their final preseason game.
