Football Extra Points:
The 49ers fell just short of possible Super Bowl victory last season. How good will they be with Kaep having a full offseason and preseason as the starter? Have they done enough to make a run this year? This is my second pass through my database predicting every teams record. Here's where I have every team this season. AFC East Patriots 12 Dolphins 7 Jets 3 Bills 1 AFC North Ravens 11 Bengals 11 Steelers 12 Browns 2 AFC South Texans 11 Colts 7 Titans 7 Jaguars 1 AFC West Broncos 11 Chargers 4 Raiders 3 Chiefs 12 NFC East Redskins 6 Giants 10 Cowboys 8 Eagles 8 NFC North Packers 11 Vikings 6 Bears 11 Lions 10 NFC South Falcons 11 Panthers 5 Saints 11 Buccaneers 6 NFC West 49ers 14 Seahawks 12 Rams 4 Cardinals 8 AFC Playoffs – Patriots, Steelers, Texans, Chiefs.

Size, durability, and speed are a few qualities that define a good defensive end in the NFL. The 49ers’ starting defensive ends Justin Smith and Ray McDonald excel in these areas. McDonald is signed with the Niners through 2016 so he shouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon. However, as dominant Justin Smith has been, he will not play forever at that position. Eventually...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, free agent wide receiver Randy Moss likely won’t be playing football this season. With Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin tearing an ACL and Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta gone for at least six weeks with a dislocated hip, the name “Randy Moss” could pick up some steam in league circles, at least from a speculation standpoint....
Tarell Brown fired his agent after he learned -- on Twitter -- that he had forfeited $2 million in salary for not participating in the team's voluntary offseason workout program.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown fired his agent after learning that he inadvertently forfeited $2 million because he did not participate in the team’s voluntary offseason workouts. Brown was set to earn $2.925 million this season in base salary after signing a three-year, $7.125 million extension in 2009. The figure dropped to $925,000 after [...]
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.
Smith lined up at practice with the other Smith...
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.
“The door is never...
A few years ago, most teams had an interest in signing Nnamdi Asomugha. He was looked upon as one of the best corners in the game. The San Francisco 49ers were said to have interest in signing him…but only at the right price. Fast forward to 2013 and the 49ers did get their guy at a very modest price.
Back in 2011, the Philadelphia Eagles swooped in and signed Asomugha to a five...

Coming off a season where they were one play away from being champions you would think the Niners were a team that was set for many years on both sides of the football. 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...
A fresh start in a familiar place is bringing out the best in Nnamdi Asomugha.
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.
Asomugha is looking to regain the form at age 32 that made...
Do you read contracts? Tell us why.That’s how Taiwan Animation’s recap of the Tarell Brown salary gaffe ends. You know, before a panda goes down a waterslide and does a triple flip into a pool of LOL-advertising bikini girls. I know that sounds like I’m just throwing a bunch of random words into a sentence, but it’s accurate.Anyway, if you aren’t aware of the situation...
The 49ers opened their training camp for the 2013 season Thursday, looking to avenge last February’s defeat to the Ravens in the Super Bowl. Head coach Jim Harbaugh expressed his push to move forward and praised the progression of Colin Kaepernick as the team’s unquestioned leader. Inside are other news and notes from Kyle Williams, Justin Smith, and highlights from the first practice.
Tweet This is an example of why you should always read the fine print… Tarell Brown, who emerged as one of the best cornerbacks on the San Francisco 49ers in recent seasons, saw his 2013 salary take a dip from $2.925 million to $925,000 for missing the Niners’ offseason workout program. Here’s details, courtesy of [...]
