San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has gained a reputation for using players in non-traditional roles, and he may be doing it again with Will Tukuafu, a defensive tackle who has been spending time at fullback during practice. On Tuesday, Tukuafu caught a pass while coming out of the backfield, and the 6-4-, 293-pound Tukuafu has been getting quite a bit of practice time at fullback behind Bruce Miller. Harbaugh is impressed by what he's seen of Tukuafu on offense during practice. "Yeah, Will's doing a great job athletically, picking up the offense and the defense, both," Harbaugh said. "And I think the best will come when he puts the pads on. I think that's when it'll get really exciting and fun. A 280-plus guy playing fullback is going to bode well for us." Tukuafu played in four games in 2011 as a defensive lineman, but his season ended when he injured his wrist during kickoff return. Harbaugh said Tukuafu will continue pract...

The 293-pound Tukuafu is getting some additional work at fullback during the 49ers' organized team activities this offseason. He even managed to catch a...

The San Francisco 49ers franchise tagged Dashon Goldson earlier this offseason after he made the Pro Bowl for the 1st time in his career last season, assuring him 6.2 million in 2012. Goldson has yet to sign the tender nor has he attended 49ers’ voluntary OTAs. In fact, he reportedly has no “immediate plans” to even come to the Bay Area. Goldson is said to be seeking Eric Weddle...
Head Coach Jim Harbaugh singled out Vernon Davis today as someone having “an outstanding offseason.” This is just a continuation of what Davis did down the stretch last year. In his last 5 games, including playoffs, he had 28 catches for 536 yards and 5 touchdowns. Davis struggled with the playbook earlier in the season, which he himself admits. However, before last year when...
San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis told the San Jose Mercury News that he believe that his team should be this year’s Super Bowl favorite heading into this coming season.
“I strongly believe we should be the Super Bowl favorites,” Davis said. “But I can’t talk about it because it’s all about work. It starts here at practice. I don’t want to talk...
A six-year old New York Giants fan named Joe sent San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs a letter with $3.36 in it so he’d be able to re-sign with the Giants.
Of course it unfortunately didn’t matter how much money the boy sent Jacobs, he couldn’t work anything out with the Giants and ended up signing with the 49ers.

Prior to the off-season, Brandon Jacobs had spent the first seven years of his NFL career with the New York Giants with mixed results from the fan base before bolting NY to join the San Francisco 49ers.
