Antonio Brown trade talks are expected to heat up during the scouting combine which is from Feb 26-Mar 4. Steelers will ask for a first round pick. Teams expected to be interested are the: 49ers, Saints, Packers, Seahawks, Colts and Eagles. Steelers will not trade Brown to the Ravens, Patriots or Browns.
Some news: 49ers have denied the Broncos request to interview QBs Coach Rich Scangarello for their OC job. The 49ers have fired head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson after firing the strength and conditioning coach last week.
This is my dream offseason and there’s a path that could actually lead this to happen.. Just imagine 😮
The 49ers have blocked the Packers and Cardinals requests to interview 49ers run game coordinator for their Offensive Coordinator jobs. McDaniel is one of Kyle Shanahan’s right hand men and helps a lot with the playbook.
The 49ers have got to keep Robbie Gould at all costs this offseason. Gould is 82-85 since joining the 49ers and will command some big bucks after seeing all this bad kicker player around the NFL. If we have to franchise tag him then I’d do it but I’d look to ink a 3-4 year deal first.
I see all the Josh Allen to 49ers hype train but I am not apart of that. I don’t see what’s so special about Allen. He has no pass rushing skills, all he does is speed rush. I also question his fit in 4-3 defense. He also doesn’t seem like an every down EDGE more of a SAM LB like a Anthony Barr type. If Bosa goes #1 I would desperately look to trade back if I was the 49ers and target guys like Jachai Polite, Brian Burns, Clelin Ferrell. I’m not a big Josh Allen fan, lemme know your guys thoughts on him in the comments.
Michael Irvin: “My body shivers and shakes with the thought of Antonio Brown with Kyle Shanahan.” Me too Michael. Me too.
The National Championship game between Alabama and Clemson is tonight from Levi’s Stadium at 5:00 on ESPN. Here’s a list of top draft prospects to watch out for: DT Quinnen Williams (Alabama) S Deionte Thompson (Alabama) DE Clelin Ferrell (Clemson) OT Jonah Williams (Alabama) C Ross Pierschbacher (Alabama) DT Christian Wilkins (Clemson) DT Raekwon Davis (Alabama) CB Trayvon Mullen (Clemson) TE Irv Smith (Alabama) LB Mack Wilson (Alabama) RB Damien Harris (Alabama) DE Austin Bryant (Clemson) LB Tre Lamar (Clemson) WR Hunter Renfrow (Clemson)
49ers DBs Coach Jeff Hafley has joined Ohio State as the Co-Defensive Coordinator. The 49ers will now have to find a new DB coach and one guy I’d expect to see the 49ers interested in is Marquand Manuel. He was the DB coach in Atlanta when Shanahan was there and Kyle tried to hire him as 49ers DC but the Falcons kept him.
The 49ers are 1 of 5 teams along with the Raiders, Lions, Redskins, and Giants eligible to be on HBO’s Hard Knocks next season but Kyle Shanahan wants no part of it. “You’ll see the worst entertainment possible from me”. Kyle also feels like there’s personal things that don’t need to be shared on camera like cutting players. He feels like that's very personal. “These guys are fighting for their careers, and lives, and how much it means to be an NFL player.” The NFL can pick any team they choose and if the 49ers get picked they can’t do anything about it.
Clelin Ferrell wears 99 because of Aldon Smith. He also thinks he can be the player Smith should have been without all the off the field issues. Thoughts on Ferrell? Should the 49ers draft him at 2?
Wanted to share my predictions on the 8 head coaching openings. Not really a good year with candidates. Thank god the Niners finally found their HC for a long time with Kyle Shanahan. Lemme know your picks on the HC jobs.
49ers have fired Strength and Conditioning Coach Ray Wright. Good move here, the injuries have got to stop and hopefully we hire someone better.
The 49ers are the most hated team in Washington, Idaho and Montana according to this graphic. The Seahawks are the most hated team in California which makes sense.
You know what the crazy part about this picture is? It’s the fact that we already have everyone depicted except for one. Faithful, we already have a MONUMENTALLY talented offensive squad, and with the ever looming Antonio Brown trade, this unit could be propelled to the top of the NFL. For starters, we have Jimmy G, a proven winner and ace who commands the respect of every present defensive player. We also have the best Tight End in the NFL in George Kittle, who had the SINGLE BEST YEAR that a Tight End has EVER HAD, with a backup QB. Our Running Back core is another strong point of this unit, with the Duo of Jet McKinnon and Matt Breida possibly becoming as impactful as those two guys down in NOLA. Breida is a little powerhouse who has the ability to tank hits and power through holes, similar to Mark Ingram, whom of which doesn’t have the same impact in the passing game. My Alvin Kamara comparison is Jet, who is shifty, quick, agile, and flexible. He can definitely provide us with an Offensive Swiss Army Knife-like impact on the offensive front. We also posses Raheem Mostert, who is the NFC’s Best Special Teamer and a nice change of pace back. Our Wide Receiver core is no laughing matter either, with us already having Marquise Goodwin, who with Jimmy, almost managed to break 1000 yards in a single season. Let’s not forget about Dante Pettis, who towards the end of the season, looked like an X-Factor weapon, with great elusive ability and route running. He’s going to be something really special for us, for a long time. And finally, we have a great opportunity to trade for the BEST Wide Receiver in the league in Antonio Brown. Guys, AB possesses Extreme Red Zone Efficiency, Deep Threat Capabilities, and PERFECT Route Running. I don’t care about his monster contract, or what we’d have to give up for him, or how he’s 30. He is constantly in the MVP Conversation year in and out, and we have a LEGITIMATE CHANCE to acquire him. And if we do get him, expect the league to see us Strike Gold very, very soon. So what do y’all think? Do you like the idea of Antonio Brown becoming a 49er? 🤘❤️💛
Marquise Goodwin and Earl Thomas hanging out at the Texas game yesterday 👀 Both are Texas Alums and share the same agent. Another connection that could possibly point towards Earl Thomas signing with the 49ers in Free Agency.
Greg Papa has been announced as the new Play-By-Play radio announcer for the 49ers replacing Ted Robinson who did it for 10 years. Papa worked 21 years with the Raiders.

There’s “some buzz” that the 49ers will pursue WR Odell Beckham Jr if the Giants look to trade him this offseason. Beckham, 26, signed a 5/95 last offseason.
FAITHFUL, THIS IS NOT A DRILL! NFL PERENNIAL PRO BOWL, ALL-PRO WIDE RECEIVER ANTONIO BROWN HAS REQUESTED A TRADE OUT OF PITTSBURGH. Now, many players request trades all the time. But as you can see, our very 49ers players took a shot at recruitment, to be met with an actual response by Brown himself. That’s insane. Brown absolutely would not do that if he didn’t not only desire to be released/traded from Pittsburgh, but also want to come to the Niners. He responded to George Kittle’s tweet, which was retweeted by Jimmy G, and commented on by Adrian Colbert and EA Sports. That is a very serious action, and it could hint at a possibly massive move in the coming days. Check your news faithful, something big is coming. Would you welcome Antonio Brown to the 49ers? 🤘❤️💛
John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan are entering their biggest offseason yet. The decisions made here in Year 3 will go along way on how the team will do in the future. Here’s what I think our needs are (no order): EDGE, CB, WR, Interior O-Line, LB.
Yesterday, unfortunately, was the last game of the 2018-2019 season for the 49ers 🥺 So it was mandatory we made our annual trip to The Coliseum for the 49ers/Rams game 🏈❤️💛 I thought Tommy Lasorda was my last signing of 2018 . . . BUT the 49ers made sure it wasn’t since we got to the stadium early 💪🏾 THANK YOU to every single player who stopped and took the time to sign for not just me but everyone else 👌🏾(Shout out to my lil homie Ben who helped me get the majority of my autographs even though he smeared Pettis’s 😂) And THANK YOU to the San Francisco 49ers for being one of the BEST organizations in professional sports handing out t-shirts and rally towels pregame on the road and for capturing moments I thought would just be memories 👍🏾 This season might have been a disappointment to most, but I loved how resilient and scrappy this team played the entire year, even with all the injuries. The future is bright and I look forward to next season. FOREVER FAITHFUL! 💯🏈❤️💛 #nickmullens #dantepettis #marquisegoodwin #solomonthomas #deforestbuckner #cassiusmarsh #mattbreida #raheemmostert #49ers #sanfrancisco49ers #niners #ninerempire #ninergang #sf49ers #49ersla #49erslosangeles #49erfaithful #faithfulthenfaithfulnow #ninernation #redandgold #redandgoldtillimdeadandcold #autograph #brickbybrick #nfl #football #la #losangeles #losangelesmemorialcoliseum #losangelescoliseum #thecoliseum
49ers RT Mike McGlinchey: “I’m not satisfied with how I played this year. Everyone says it was a great rookie year. I’m not playing to be a great rookie. I’m playing to be the best in the league.” Love the attitude.
LG Laken Tomlinson suffered a torn MCL but won’t require surgery. He has a 3 month recovery which is good news.
Here’s our free agents this offseason. I’m down with bringing back Gould, Pinion, Person and Nzeocha.
The 49ers and Raiders coaching staffs are expected to coach the Senior Bowl on January 26th. Potential top 5 pick Josh Allen will be playing in the game.
KITTLE OVER THE MIDDLE!!! IF THIS MAN DOESN’T GET 1st Team All-Pro THEN I WILL HAVE OFFICIALLY LOST ALL FAITH IN THE NFL. KITTLE IS THE BEST TIGHT END IN THE LEAGUE, UNBIASED TRUTH. PERIOD. 49ER MVP OF THE SEASON AND ALL TIME SINGLE SEASON RECEIVING YARDS LEADER FOR TIGHT ENDS!!! WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE GEORGE KITTLE MOMENT OF THE YEAR?! 🤘❤️💛
The 49ers 2019 Opponents are set. Weeks and dates will come in a few months but the opponents are already determined.
And the 49ers 2018 season comes to an end at 4-12. So the Niners get back Jimmy G and McKinnon while also adding in the 2nd overall pick and around 70M in cap space. Definitely got some things to accomplish this offseason but future looks good.
Congratulations George Kittle for owning the most receiving yards in NFL history by a TE with 1,377 yards! What a season. Kittle is a superstar
49ers have a decision to make this offseason. Before the season the 49ers picked up Arik Armstead’s 9M 5th year option but the 49ers can cut him before March and save that 9M without a cap hit. If i’m the Niners I would keep Armstead. Sure 9M seems like a lot for a run defender but he has had the best year of his career as he stayed healthy all 16 games and ranked as the 49ers 2nd best defender by PFF. Armstead is a big part of why the 49ers run defense ranked 9th in the NFL. Thoughts? Do you want to keep Arik Armstead for next season?
The available WRs for the 49ers on Sunday are gonna be Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor, Richie James and Steven Dunbar and likely Max McCaffrey from the practice squad. So a 5th round pick, 7th round pick and 3 UDFAs. Just throw the ball to Kittle every play and let him get the record.
Kyle Shanahan says the 49ers coaching staff will coach the Senior Bowl if they’re asked by the NFL. The teams with the lowest winning percentage get the first opportunity to coach the game. 1 staff from the AFC and 1 from the NFC. The 49ers could still coach the game even if the Cardinals are ahead of them in the draft order because Arizona is expected to fire HC Steve Wilks after 1 season. Good opportunity to see players up close and personal to see who you like and would want to draft.
The 49ers and Jets are very close to each other in strength of schedule. Right now the 49ers are at (504) and Jets are at (506). The lower SOS gets the higher pick so right now the 49ers are 2nd and the Jets are 3rd in the draft order but things could change. For the Jets to get ahead of the 49ers assuming both teams lose on Sunday the Jets need 3 out of 4 of these scenarios to happen: Giants over Cowboys Ravens over Browns Bucs over Falcons Chargers over Broncos So this gives you a good idea of which teams to root for this Sunday. Go Cowboys, Browns, Falcons and Broncos. We just need 2 of them to win and we secure the 2nd overall pick barring an unexpected win from Arizona over Seattle which would put the 49ers at 1st overall.
Richard Sherman on possibly playing with Earl Thomas again in SF: “I would love to. I’m sure he will have a plethora of opportunities, but I’m sure we’re going to throw our hat in the ring.”
Nick Mullens in his first 7 career games has the 3rd-most passing yards in NFL history since 1970. 1st - Patrick Mahomes 2,149 2nd - Cam Newton 2,103 3rd- NICK MULLENS 1,995 4th - Andrew Luck 1,971
Matt Breida and Dante Pettis will both miss the last game of the year against the Rams. Honestly Breida should’ve been shut down a few weeks ago he’s hasn’t been healthy all year but I’m excited for the Breida/McKinnon duo next season. As for Dante Pettis he was really coming along to end the season and he’ll definitely be a big part of the offense with Jimmy G next year.
George Kittle needs 98 yards in the final game against the Rams to pass Rob Gronkowski’s All Time Record for most receiving yards by a Tight End in NFL History (1,327 in 2011). Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is 53 yards away from the record.
Nick Mullens on 4th and 4... Niners have the 3rd pick currently and will move up to 2nd if the Raiders win tomorrow vs Denver.
Make sure that ACL is ready come training camp Jimmy, we need our franchise QB back on the field. Faithful, I think that this game should’ve been the wake up call. Jimmy G is our Quarterback of the Future, and that absolutely is not disputable. His poise is commanding, his potential—unmeasurable. With Jimmy on the field, our team’s ability is elevated far beyond what we are currently seeing with Nick Mullens. This post isn’t meant to throw shade at Nick, he’s been a nice bright spot of the season. But at the end of the day, Nick Mullens is our BACKUP Quarterback of the future. Trading Jimmy isn’t something that will be considered by the 49ers Organization in any regard in the near future. Today’s game was completely winnable, and we’ve had plenty of similar outcomes this year. We gain small leads over our opponents, only to falter and completely fall flat come the second half. That doesn’t happen with Jimmy, and he’ll guide us to Victory come next year. So what do you think? Do you have faith in Jimmy? 🤘❤️💛
Todays Inactive’s against the Bears at 1:05. Earl Mitchell is a healthy scratch missing his 1st game of the season as the 49ers look to give more snaps to DJ Jones and Jullian Taylor.
49ers DT DeForest Buckner, who is eligible for a contract extension after this season, said his agent plans to meet with team in offseason.
Niners fans that wouldn’t do this trade are absolutely crazy. Shanahan’s system is great and is making Mullens look good. People saying he’s better than Garoppolo are stupid. Mullens can’t throw the ball past 20 yards but he does execute the system perfectly. We need as many draft picks as we can get.
FB Kyle Juszczyk and TE George Kittle have been selected to the Pro Bowl! DeForest Buckner, Robbie Gould and Mark Nzeocha have been selected as alternates.
DeForest Buckner was an absolute beast yesterday: 11 total tackles 2 sacks 4 tackles for loss 3 QB hits Buckner will be eligible for a contract extension this offseason and hopefully we lock him down. Also Pro Bowl Rosters will be announced tomorrow at 5 PM and Buckner better be on the roster.
49ers CB Ahkello Witherspoon suffered a sprained knee in yesterday’s win over Seattle and will miss the final two games of the season. Tarvarius Moore will be starting in his place.
One of the biggest offseason priorities should be re-signing Robbie Gould. Gould, 36, is 25-26 FGA and 22-24 on extra point attempts. We’ve seen all the bad kicker play around the NFL and it’s good knowing you have a guy you trust when the game is on the line. Bringing back Robbie would be smart. @robbiegould09
Here’s a look at the 49ers Wide Reciever Core. Now, I’m gonna just sum things up—Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis are the only two WRs that are “safe” for the future. Quise hasn’t had a ton of production this year, but we can all agree that his connection with Jimmy is very sublime. They really seem to click, and we all know what those two are capable of. Quise is also just 28 years old, and still has plenty of years left in him. His speed and connection with Jimmy should be something that we’ll be seeing for a long, long time. Dante Pettis is another guy that has really, and I mean REALLY, intrigued me, however, my fascination only bloomed recently. Over the past four weeks, Dante has accumulated 338 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. If the season were to have started four weeks ago, we’d be looking at a guy with a 1200+ yard, 10+ touchdown season on his hands. He could be HUGE for us, and in my eyes, looks like he could very well be the #1 Wide Receiver that the Niners need. He reminds me a lot of my favorite player, OBJ. They both possess a playmaking ability that no 40 yard dash, 3 cone drill can show. Dante’s ability to run PERFECT routes, explode off of runs, and produce in the red zone makes him a very good WR #1 option for us. As for the rest of our core, they’re all fine. I just don’t really see them as very explosive or game changing. They don’t make a defensive coordinator bite his nails like the Dante and Quise do, which is ultimately what it comes down to. What do y’all think? Who do y’all feel like the 49ers should do with Wide Receiver Core? 🤘❤️💛
Rejoice, for we have finally defeated the Seattle Seahawks for the first time since 2013! Our defense was crushing, our offense efficient, and our special teams, merciless. We did what had to be done, and we played efficiently. Well done Niners, this win was totally worth losing that #1 draft pick. There hasn’t been a sweeter Victory Monday in YEARS. Who was your player of the game, and what was your favorite moment? 🤘❤️💛
49ers’ RB Matt Breida (ankle), WR Marquise Goodwin (calf) and WR Dante Pettis (foot) – all listed as questionable for Sunday – all will play against the Seahawks tomorrow.
Not sure if I agree.. We can just flip him for a pick, draft another QB and then flip him in a few years too. I think Shanahan’s system is making Mullens look better than he actually is. Niners also need to get as many draft assets as they can. What do you guys think?
49ers LT Joe Staley confirms he will return for at least another season next year. Staley will be 35 next year and will be a FA after next year where he could likely retire.
George Kittle leads the 49ers with 1,103 receiving yards. The next closest 49er is at 363 receiving yards.
Nick Mullens has thrown for 748 yards in the past two games. That’s the highest total for a 49ers QB in back-to-back games since Steve Young in 1995.
Here’s my take on our best options/moves come Draft Day. The best decision that we could make is take the best man available, which will most likely be Nick Bosa at number 1 overall. He’s gonna be a great player in this league, and if you thought that his ProBowl brother was Elite, which you would not be in ANY WAY incorrect for thinking, then imagine what his brother could do. Joey is a top 10, if not higher ranked, DE in this league and is only getting better. Nick looks even BETTER than his brother did coming out of college. Just to give you some more perspective into Nick’s prowess, Joey was drafted at 4th overall by the then San Diego Chargers a few years back, and number four was considered to be a slight FALL for him as a prospect. Nick falling to 4th overall this year would take a massive, and I mean MASSIVE scandal. Taking Nick at 1st overall would be fine by me. I think that our second best possible move would be drafting based on NEED. Free Agency is going to be huge for us this year. Last year, we as a fan base totally misinterpreted Kyle Shannahan and John Lynch’s approach. They wanted to build a foundation in years one and two, and that’s done through the draft. That’s why our Free Agency outings last year were relatively “quiet”. This year, we’ve got the foundation mosly figured out, with George Kittle, Jimmy G, Defo, etc. being clear foundational pieces. Now we’re going to be addressing things based on immediate need. DE is, without a DOUBT, our number one problem. However, Free Agency this year is going to be seeing quite a few big name DEs on the Market. With the likes of Jadeveon Clowny (yeah he’s an OLB, but he would fill a BIG hole nonetheless), Demarcus Lawrence, Ezekiel Anshan, and more hitting the market, it’s hard to see DE plaguing us into the draft. So, options like Greedy Williams at Corner would make perfect sense, especially since the CB market is lackluster at BEST this year. And finally, we could always just trade down. We only have five draft picks this year, and trading down for maybe 3-5 more picks is fine, of course depending on our activity in free agency. So what do y’all think? What would you do during the 2019 draft?🤘❤️💛
I was very impressed by D.J. Reed in yesterday’s game. He got the start at slot corner where he is more comfortable at than at FS. I think Reed should be the starter next year because K’Waun Williams has been average at best this year. Reed who was selected in the 5th Round this year had his best game of the season.
Pierre Garcon has officially been placed on IR ending his season. Hopefully we cut him this offseason. Roll with Goodwin/Pettis and add a WR in the draft or a trade. Not any good ones in Free Agency.
This is why I refuse to call Thomas a bust just yet. I feel the same way about Jimmie Ward, I feel like he’s a much better safety than he is a corner. I feel like Saleh is going for need over strength. When this coaching staff was put together Robert Saleh was the biggest question mark. He was a linebackers coach before and had no experience as a DC and he was taking over one of the younger defenses in the league. I wasn’t really thrilled when he was announced the new DC, I was hoping for someone who was far more experienced. I’m not trying to make excuses for Thomas either, I just don’t want to write him off as a bust just yet until we see him play more on the interior, which is were he was so dominant in college. #49ers #SolomonThomas #RobertSaleh
Video: DL Solomon Thomas played Leo and RDE or “Big End” in game 4 and looked vicious! You can see the improvement over last season and I think a lot of that has to do with him not overthinking and trusting his athleticism. But he’s faster off the LOS and attacking. I really like what I’m seeing and I think he’s going to get some sacks. Working with many different teachers & having PRSC Chris Kiffen around should pay off. #49ers #SolomonThomas @sollythomas90 #Stanford

Video: DL Solomon Thomas was looking good at Leo/DL before the concussion just after his second good play in this video. He had a half sack he shared with with Buckner getting the other half & 3 combined tackles. Thomas is under concussion protocol. Buckner does a nice swim move and gets to Dak, he’s been dominating in camp and has good strength & hand technique. #49ers #SolomonThomas @sollythomas90 @dbuck_99 #DeForestBuckner
2017 Draft Buzz- According to reports, the San Fransisco 49ers will consider drafting NFL prospects DE Solomon Thomas, CB Marshon Lattimore, and S Jamal Adams with their No. 2 pick, if they are unable to trade down. The 49ers are one of many teams in the top 10 who are attempting to trade back. However, if they are unable to do so, NFL draft analyst Todd McShay says the team has already narrowed down their list of options to three. #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnetwork #news #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #sports #sportsnews #sportstoday #sportsnow #updates #rumor #sportsnation #football #footballnews #footballrumors #nflrumors #nfltoday #trending #news #foxsports #sanfransisco49ers #solomonthomas #marshonlattimore #jamaladams #2017nfldraft
