  49ers | Jacquies Smith not offered deal from SF    Sun Mar 26, 06:41 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent DE Jacquies Smith (knee) recently met with the San Francisco 49ers, but the 49ers have not made him a contract offer at this time, according to general manager John Lynch. Lynch said the team wanted to see how Smith was recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

  49ers | Jacquies Smith visiting San Francisco    Fri Mar 24, 03:46 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent DE Jacquies Smith is visiting the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source. Smith, who was tendered at the original round level earlier this month after entering the league as an undrafted free agent, would not fetch the Buccaneers any draft pick compensation should he sign an offer sheet with the 49ers and Tampa Bay choose not to match.

  49ers | San Francisco watching DeShone Kizer    Thu Mar 23, 09:39 PM

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch attended Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer's pro day Thursday, March 23.

Footballguys view: The Niners are likely just kicking the tires on all sorts of quarterbacks but we still think Kyle Shanahan wants Kirk Cousins next year. Kizer could go as a developmental project though, but we won't see him early in the draft.

  49ers | Reuben Foster planned to meet with 49ers    Sat Mar 18, 02:04 PM

Alabama LB Reuben Foster was scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers Friday, March 17.

Footballguys view: Foster has drawn comparisons to Ray Lewis and Bobby Wagner during his college career at Alabama. He's fierce, intense, intimidating and arrives at the ball-carrier with natural violence. Foster breaks down plays quickly and can stay with tight ends in coverage. He's a first-round pick, but character concerns may cause him to fall a bit in the draft. The 49ers have the 2nd-overall pick, and we think that's a bit too high for Foster...even though he's incredibly talented.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick could return to 49ers    Fri Mar 17, 04:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has not ruled out the possibility of the 49ers re-signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick but did say the likelihood if it happening has dropped since the team has added QBs Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley this offseason.

Footballguys view: The 49ers would be unlikely to commit long term to Kaepernick. With six-year contracts for head coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch, the 49ers have a lot of time to find the right quarterback....and that's not Kaepernick.

  49ers | Brian Hoyer wants to start     Thu Mar 16, 11:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer said he won't be content being a backup quarterback, and he believes he will have a leg up in a quarterback competition because he is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's system.

Footballguys view: Hoyer is a "bridge" quarterback for the 49ers, but nobody knows where the bridge leads. They have been linked to rumored trades for Kirk Cousins (Washington), but they may have to wait until 2018 when he hits the free agent market. If they don't find their next quarterback, there's a chance Hoyer could play quite a bit in 2017 for the rebuilding 49ers.

  49ers | No QB for San Francisco at No. 2?    Sun Mar 12, 08:55 PM

The San Francisco 49ers are likely looking at positions other than quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after signing QB Brian Hoyer and QB Matt Barkley, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have plenty of time to find their next franchise QB. They won't rush it by overdrafting a QB in a bad class for passers. We still feel the 49ers get Kirk Cousins, either by trade this year or as a free agent next year.

  49ers | Marquise Goodwin brags about speed    Sun Mar 12, 12:00 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin said he is still the fastest player in the NFL and is willing to prove it on the field.

Footballguys view: Goodwin was an Olympic sprinter, so we know he's fast. Being good at football is more than just being fast. New 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could use Goodwin similarly to the way he utilized Taylor Gabriel with the Falcons.

  49ers | San Francisco still in QB market    Sat Mar 11, 11:20 AM

The San Francisco 49ers will continue to look for quarterbacks this offseason despite signing Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in free agency, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who added he doesn't know whether the team will address the position in the free agency or the draft.

Footballguys view: The team is still in the market for Kirk Cousins. We could see Cousins and Shanahan reunited, whether it's this year via trade or next year as a free agent. The 49ers have time to build things the right way, and they're not going to rush any decision at the most important position in football.

  49ers | Pierre Garcon contract details    Thu Mar 9, 07:40 PM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon signed a five-year deal worth $47.5 million. The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: We don't expect him to see the end of that contract at the age of 30. Garcon is coming off of his first 1000 yard season since 2013, though he barely saw the end zone. As of now there isn't anyone compelling throwing him the ball, so we don't expect him to top that this coming season unless there is a drastic change.

  49ers | San Francisco brings aboard Pierre Garcon    Thu Mar 9, 07:05 PM

Free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) signed a five-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Well, if Garcon went thinking Kirk Cousins was going to get traded there and throw him the ball, Dan Snyder has some disappointing news. Garcon is a solid receiver, but there's no quarterback in the Bay Area who is going to be able to take advantage of that right now.

Chicago Bears impending free-agent TE Logan Paulsen plans to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Niners are going to be rebuilding and need some blockers, which is basically what Paulsen is. We don't expect numbers from him next year, though until we see what shape the offense takes it's impossible to know for sure.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent FB Kyle Juszczyk plans to sign with the San Francisco 49ers unless there are any late-minute snags in contract negotiations, according to sources.

Footballguys view: New 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan used fullback Patrick DiMarco effectively with the Falcons, and that should be his plan for Juszczyk. He'll contribute as a blocker and receiver out of the backfield who could catch 30-40 passes in 2017.

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent WR Marquise Goodwin agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, March 8. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Goodwin can be used to stretch the field for the 49ers offense. He's not done much in his pro career with the Bills, but he could be a Taylor Gabriel-like weapon for the 49ers and new head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is close to a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, which would pay him $16 million in the first year, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The drift routes Garcon ran under former Washington OC (and new 49ers head coach) Kyle Shanahan helped the veteran receiver put up some of the best numbers of his career. The 49ers need a lot of help at multiple positions, but they could really use an upgrade at wideout.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are going in a different direction at WR in 2017. Smith made it through 12 games last year before getting hurt. He had only 20 catches for 267 yards and three touchdowns in 2016, and Smith is clearly not the same player he used to be.

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley agreed to terms on a new three-year deal with the 49ers Saturday, March 4, worth $10.5 million.

Footballguys view: Kerley has a chance to put up some numbers in the Kyle Shanahan system. We're not expecting much from him, but everyone needs to realize it wasn't that long ago that Taylor Gabriel (35 catches, 579 yards, six TDs in 2016) was picked up by the Falcons once the Browns waived him. Just keep an eye on this 49ers WR situation with Shanahan running the show.

  49ers | Alshon Jeffery an option for SF    Thu Mar 2, 09:39 AM

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery will draw interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to sources.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's new agents, Jeff Nalley and Sean Kiernan, have informed all 32 teams that Kaepernick will be opting out of his contract.

Footballguys view: Here's another quarterback to hit the open market, but we don't see a ton of teams lining up to add Kaepernick. As a pure-sight thrower, Kaepernick has not evolved his game as a quarterback. He should be in line for a modest contract, and maybe even a "prove it" deal.
