(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Brian Jennings is a long snapper with some serious longevity. An unassuming NFL specialist who has made his living under the radar for more than a decade with the NFC West-champion 49ers, Jennings has survived through five head coaches and years of failure and frustration. That makes the success this season all the more rewarding for San Francisco's longest-tenured player. Jennings is the only one in the locker room who can remember when things were last rolling like this - because he's the lone player still around from the franchise's last playoff team in 2002. While Jennings hasn't spent much of his energy worrying about what went wrong during an eight-year drought, he is thrilled to be part of a turnaround under first-year coach Jim Harbaugh.
