49ers Trade Pro Bowl Punter Andy Lee to the Browns

Punters are people too. Following the selection of Clemson’s Bradley Pinion in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft, the San Francisco 49ers seemingly didn’t have any use for three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee. So on the surface it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that San Francisco shipped Lee off to the Cleveland Browns for a seventh-round pick in 2017 on Saturday....

Could rookie punter Bradley Pinion overtake Andy Lee?

Kaepernick's Mental Mistakes Manifest

You don't have to have ever strapped on a pair of football shoulder pads to know common sense. Common sense tells a quarterback to throw the ball away rather than run out of bounds for a five yard loss (a.k.a. a sack for the defense). It is a pretty pathetic play when a quarterback runs out of bounds with time to throw the ball away and the question has to be asked, “who gets credit...
