Do the San Francisco 49ers need to draft an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Gore and Freeney: Veteran free agents who still have something to offer

Football demands youth spread throughout every roster, because older bodies have endured more punishment, and could break easily. This is not revolutionary thinking, but the salary cap dictates that finding veterans to plug into a specific role is a necessary front-office skill. It separates championship-caliber general managers from the rest. Aging yet still useful talent is also...

Report: 49ers will ask Stevie Johnson to take a pay cut

With a $5.5 million salary due for the 2015 season, WR Stevie Johnson's current contract apparently isn't going to stay as it is, reports the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, according to multiple sources. The good news here for Johnson is that the team still wants him - which contrasts earlier reports that he's a candidate to be release. They simply want him at a more cap-friendly...

Should the San Francisco 49ers consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Do the San Francisco 49ers have to pick up an offensive lineman in free agency?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick fares well in this week’s QB Rankings

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

The big question about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick coming into the 2014 season was whether he would continue to develop into a star or stagnate. It’s difficult to tell based on the numbers. Kaepernick threw more passes for more yards than in any of his previous seasons, but his accuracy and total QBR are still not what one would expect from a player as talented...
