Santa Clara officials have given former 49ers superstar quarterback Joe Montana approval to begin negotiations with the city. Montana wants to build a hotel and entertainment complex across from the 49ers new stadium. The project covers a total of 8 acres, including 2 of city-owned lots. Montana says he has money for a four-star hotel, a sports bar, an upscale restaurant and additional entertainment uses. The complex would open before the 2014 NFL season, which is the season San Francisco will be playing in the new stadium. The San Jose Mercury News reports that the city Council voted 4-2 on Tuesday in favor of Montana’s group. The two councilmembers who voted against the idea believe the city should allow all potential developers to develop the land instead of only working with Montana.       Be sure to check out other great articles at Heavy in the Games. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Rookie Fantasy Football Preview: A.J. Jenkins

A.J. Jenkins was projected to go in the second round by the majority of scouts, and he was the definition of a reach in the first round. The 49ers have taken some significant heat for the selection, but I don’t have a major issue with it outside of the fact that they probably should have traded down to the early second round if they really wanted Jenkins.   Jenkins is an explosive...

When the lockout lifted last July, the team was waiting to install new offensive and defensive systems and waiting for a college coach, in Jim Harbaugh, to take over. The results -- a surprise 13-3 season, NFC West title and a fumbled punt from appearing in the Super...

2012 Fantasy Football TE Rankings

.1. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots: 1327 yards and 17 TDs (plus a rushing score). Gronk is ridiculous. He got paid, but I don’t think that will slow him..2. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints: Hard to argue with 1310 yards and 11 TDs. He’s become Drew Brees’ favorite target, which is always a good thing..3.
