San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and head coach Jim Harbaugh are very happy with what they’ve seen from second-year receiver A.J. Jenkins.
“A.J. I thought, the last two days of last week (OTA) had the best two days he’s had since I’ve been here. Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette – they’re all stepping up. And it’s just going to be a continuing process. We’re trying to get these guys ready for training camp to come in compete and win a job. And it’s happening.”
Roman was asked how Jenkins has been standing out.
“Oh, just made some clutch catches for us moving the ball,” Roman said. “Just made plays, did all the right things, made plays when he had the opportunity. And he just needs to continue to do that.”
Harbaugh is just as pleased with Jenkins as Roman is.
“Thought A.J. had his best week of football since he’s been a 49er the last four days of OTAs. And he continues to build on that. … Anybody that’s going from Year 1 to Year 2, it’s a great window of opportunity to improve in the kind of fashion that you’ll never have again in your career. Because you’re going from doing things for the first time to now everything that you do, you’ve already done.”
It sounds like Jenkins is stepping up so far.

During the 2012 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers drafted Illinois wide receiver A.J. Jenkins with the 30th overall pick. Jenkins’ rookie season was uneventful to say the least as he only played in 37 snaps and was targeted once, which he dropped. However...
The Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh feud started a while ago back in the college football scene when Carroll was the coach at USC and Harbaugh at Stanford.
To say the least the two have a distaste for each other would be an understatement.
Now that both men are the head coaches in the NFC West, their rivalry has blossomed to a new level.
Carroll is the Seattle Seahawks coach...
Former San Francisco 49ers great Roger Craig believes his former team will become the next great NFL dynasty under head coach Jim Harbaugh.
“I’m going on the record saying the 49ers win two Super Bowls in the next eight years,” Craig said last week. “They’ll be the winningest team in the next decade.”
Craig compares Harbaugh to Bill Walsh.
“He’s my kind of coach,”...
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com asked 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh today if wide receiver Mario Manningham will be ready for the regular season after tearing his ACL late last season.
Harbaugh responded by saying, “At some point.”
It certainly doesn’t sound like the 49ers are expecting Manningham to be ready. Don’t be surprised if he lands on the PUP list heading into the...
Jim Harbaugh has used the recent run of suspensions on the division rival Seattle Seahawks for performance-enhancing drug infractions as a reminder to his own San Francisco team: Cheating won't be tolerated.
Harbaugh's reigning NFC champion 49ers had begun their three-day minicamp Tuesday when the coach was asked about the issue surrounding the Seahawks.
The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier to a four-year contract.
The deal was announced Monday, a day before the reigning NFC champions open a three-day minicamp.
San Francisco made a trade with the Packers to move up five spots and choose the Auburn standout with the 88th overall selection in April's draft.
Also Monday, San Francisco signed...
Former San Francisco 49ers great Roger Craig gave a ringing endorsement of current coach Jim Harbaugh.
“He makes you accountable. He’s very similar to Bill Walsh that way,” Craig said, via Ashley Fox of ESPN.
That’s a big time compliment from a player who actually was on those great 49ers teams.
Craig gushed over how Harbaugh has many of the same traits as Walsh.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll have had an ongoing dislike for each other since Harbaugh was at Stanford, and Carroll was at USC.
That dislike has ratcheted up a ton since both teams are rivals in the same division, and both teams engaged in an arms race this off-season via the draft and free agency.
Both teams will...
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was extremely critical of the Seattle Seahawks' repeated, positive PED tests.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier to a four-year contract.
The St. Louis Rams were a thorn in the 49ers' side in 2012, pushing San Francisco to a tie in Week 10 and defeating them in over time three weeks later. And since joining the 49ers as a free agent this offseason, former Rams' safety Craig Dahl said the offense was tipping its plays.
The 49ers announced they have inked wideout Brandon Carswell to a two-year deal Wednesday. To make room on the roster, the team waived tight end Cameron Morrah.
The Seattle Seahawks have had more suspensions related to performance-enhancing drug use since 2011 than other other team in the NFL. Five Seahawks players have been disciplined for violating the league’s PED policy since December 2011, with cornerback Richard Sherman winning an appeal during that time. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, whose team [...]
