  49ers | Desmond Bishop re-signs    Tue Mar 31, 05:19 PM

Free-agent LB Desmond Bishop (49ers) re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, March 31. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bishop could have a chance for some playing time on special teams. He played in only two games last year for the 49ers, recording two tackles. The veteran linebacker gives the 49ers depth at a position they're short-handed in.

  49ers | Hakeem Nicks visiting San Fran    Mon Mar 30, 09:14 AM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts) is visiting the San Francisco 49ers Monday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Nicks hasn't gotten much interest on the open market. The veteran receiver isn't what he used to be, and he's looking for a bounce-back season after a disappointing year with the Colts in 2014.

  49ers | Desmond Bishop to visit    Sun Mar 29, 09:40 AM

Free-agent LB Desmond Bishop (49ers) is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers Monday, March 30, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bishop played in two games for the 49ers last year. He's bounced around to three different teams since the Packers selected him in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft.

  49ers | SF has no talks with Brandon Lloyd    Sun Mar 29, 07:07 AM

Free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (49ers) has had no conversations with his former team about a new contract.

Footballguys view: Lloyd should be out there if the 49ers get desperate at the position. This is a great WR draft class, and we think the 49ers would be best served to look at one during the draft rather than bring back the veteran Lloyd.

  49ers | Cameron Fuller cut    Fri Mar 27, 02:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers CB Cameron Fuller was released Friday, March 27.

Footballguys view: Fuller was signed late last season, and he was active (but did not play) in the team's season finale.

  49ers | Jonathan Martin waived    Thu Mar 26, 04:47 PM

San Francisco 49ers OT Jonathan Martin was waived Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: Martin was likely someone who Jim Harbaugh brought in thinking he could do something with his former Stanford player. Martin appeared in 15 games with 9 starts for the 49ers last season. He's a decent player, but hasn't shown the talent most saw in college. He struggled in San Francisco and it could be tough to land yet another chance.

  49ers | Jim Tomsula high on Reggie Bush     Thu Mar 26, 01:04 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush still has the ability to be an every-down back, according to head coach Jim Tomsula. Tomsula said Bush is not a gadget player but does have the skill set to help on third downs.

Footballguys view: Bush found himself the outside man looking in back in Detroit, but with the departure of Frank Gore, the Niners need help in the backfield. We're dubious of the idea he can still be an every down back, but he would be a big help in the backfield on passing downs at least.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree struggling to find team    Tue Mar 24, 02:57 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is having a hard time being signed this offseason, reportedly due to concerns regarding lower-leg injuries and a negative perception about his attitude.

Footballguys view: Crabtree just isn't that hot of a commodity. He'll find a new home before the start of the season, but no end is in sight right now.

  49ers | HC has confidence in Colin Kaepernick    Mon Mar 23, 07:23 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has a backer in new head coach Jim Tomsula. 'Statistically and all that kind of stuff, people throw those out there -- Colin had his best year, OK. Colin is working down in Arizona. He's a great dude. He's a real good dude. He's a good teammate. He's a neat cat. Colin's going to do real well. Colin's a great football player and even better person. We're really excited about Colin,' Tomsula said.

Footballguys view: That's great they have confidence in Kaepernick...now he needs to reward their faith with strong play. Kaepernick makes one read and takes off to run. He needs to be a better passer if he's going to reach his full potential as a pro.

Free-agent LB Erin Henderson (Vikings) is drawing interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to reports.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick impresses in workouts    Mon Mar 23, 10:32 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick spent five days a week working out, watching film and fine-tuning his mechanics during a 10-week offseason session with quarterback coaches Dennis Gile and Mike Giavondo. 'I don't think there was a throw he couldn't make when he first got here,' Gile said 'I just think the consistency and efficiency of it was what we wanted to get better at, and I think that's where we made tremendous strides. He became a lot more consistent and efficient with those balls.'

Footballguys view: We'll believe it when we see it live. It's impressive that Kaepernick is taking the time, but he has to get results on the field. Kaepernick needs to show better ability to go through his reads quickly when scanning the defense. Too often, Kaepernick will make one read and run. He needs to find second and third targets as a passer, then run when he needs to.

  49ers | Chase Thomas has torn ACL    Thu Mar 19, 09:21 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Chase Thomas (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right while working during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a special teams player who is now likely to miss the entire season because of this injury. It's yet another blow to the group of linebackers in San Francisco after the retirement of Patrick Willis and Chris Borland.

  49ers | Reggie Bush signing official    Wed Mar 18, 08:34 PM

The San Francisco 49ers have officially announced they've signed veteran running back Reggie Bush to a one-year contract. Financial details were not released.

Footballguys view: With Frank Gore moving on to the Colts in free agency, Carlos Hyde takes over as the lead back for the 49ers. Behind him, Bush will work as a change-of-pace back and receiver out of the backfield.

  49ers | Stevie Johnson not returning to 49ers?    Mon Mar 16, 09:51 PM

Free-agent WR Stevie Johnson (49ers) will not re-sign with the San Francisco 49ers and is expected to decide between the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers Tuesday, March 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine him returning to the place where his career took a nosedive. A northern California native, we could see Johnson choosing to stay in the state by signing with the Chargers.

Free-agent WR Percy Harvin's (Jets) deal with the Buffalo Bills isn't done, and the San Francisco 49ers could be making a play for him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Could this happen again? Frank Gore was supposed to go to the Eagles, but he changed his mind and ended up with the Colts. Harvin was supposedly locked up with the Bills, but now that may not be the case. Stay tuned.

Free-agent OT Erik Pears (Bills) has agreed to a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This is just a move for veteran depth. Pears has played right tackle for most of his career, but he can kick inside to guard if needed.

  49ers | Reggies Bush heading to 49ers    Sat Mar 14, 02:12 PM

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) has reached an agreement with the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, March 14, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The 49ers get a change-of-pace back here in Bush. He won't carry the full load, but should be able to be a good complementary back behind Carlos Hyde. Bush should also give Colin Kaepernick a good receiving option out of the backfield.

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson was released Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are moving on from Johnson. His time with the 49ers has to be summed up as disappointing. The move saves the 49ers over $6 million in cap space. Word is there are a few teams interested in the veteran receiver. He may not be on the open market that long.

  49ers | Reggie Bush visiting SF    Wed Mar 11, 12:28 PM

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) will visit with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Bush is supposedly being looked at as a part of a three-headed RBBC with Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter. Hyde should still be in line for 250+ carries and goal-line opportunities in any event, so we wouldn't get too worried if you're a Hyde dynasty owner.

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) is considering the San Francisco 49ers for his next team. Other candidates include the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have Carlos Hyde as their lead running back. Behind him there are question marks in guys like Kendall Hunter. Adding Bush would give them a good speed back to use in a part-time role.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde the projected lead back    Tue Mar 10, 02:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is the projected lead back for 2015, with impending free-agent RB Frank Gore expected to leave. RB Kendall Hunter (knee) will be returning from an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his knee. Hyde averaged 4.0 yards per carry while rushing for 333 yards in his rookie season in 2014, but he also suffered a sprained ankle in Week 15. Hyde's four rushing touchdowns tied him for the team lead with Gore.

  49ers | Torrey Smith a done deal in San Francisco    Tue Mar 10, 10:56 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin said Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith is signing with the Niners. Boldin said it's a done deal, and he helped recruit Smith.

Footballguys view: Smith and Boldin, former teammates with the Ravens, now get to help jumpstart the 49ers passing game. We'll see if Colin Kaepernick can take advantage of defenses with this aging duo. Smith has the deep speed to stretch the field, and he does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick not on the block    Mon Mar 9, 06:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick isn't being put on the trade block, according to general manager Trent Baalke. Baalke was shooting down a rumor that said the Niners were interested in trading Kaepernick. The report listed the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears among the suitors. 'Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him,' Baalke said. 'He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and, quite frankly, ridiculous.'

Footballguys view: Of course the team is going to deny this. The truth is somewhere out there, but we'll see if Kaepernick actually gets dealt. It seems outrageous to consider at this time.

San Francisco 49ers TE Derek Carrier agreed to a two-year contract extension Monday, March 9, and the deal could be worth a total of $3.3 million, according to a source.

  49ers | Torrey Smith likely to San Francisco    Mon Mar 9, 08:30 AM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith is likely to sign with the San Francisco 49ers. One source said it was 'all but done.'

Footballguys view: The 49ers need help at the WR position. Smith has the speed to stretch the field and provide a big-play target on deep passes. Smith returning to the Ravens was unlikely for a number of weeks because he would have had to leave several million on the table.

Free-agent WR Torrey Smith (Ravens) is drawing heavy interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to multiple league sources.

San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent TE Garrett Celek has agreed to a new one-year deal with the 49ers, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This is just a depth move here. Celek is a blocker and won't contribute much as a receiver for the 49ers. His fantasy value is microscopic if not non-existent.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree is a player that the team is interested in re-signing, but his future with the 49ers may depend on the interest he receives when he hits free agency.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent LB Dan Skuta is expected to be coveted by several teams in free agency, and he's looking for a chance to start in 2015.

Footballguys view: Skuta was a solid part-timer in the linebacker rotation, managing four sacks, and 17 tackles on 398 snaps. It's not awe-inspiring, but he was an effective player overall so he will see some interest, though starting is a bit of a high hope.

  49ers | Interested in Trent Cole    Thu Mar 5, 05:00 PM

Free-agent DE Trent Cole (Eagles) is receiving interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to a league source. The Niners may be looking for another edge pass rusher if they part ways with LB Ahmad Brooks. Cole had 52 tackles, 6.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in 2014.

Footballguys view: If Brooks goes, Cole should be a solid replacement. The Niners will have to depend on the defense as the offense looks like it is about to go into a bit of turmoil again this season.

  49ers | Darnell Dockett agrees with San Fran    Thu Mar 5, 09:47 AM

Free-agent DE Darnell Dockett (Cardinals) agreed with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 5, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Footballguys view: A good move for the 49ers here. Dockett missed all of last year with an ACL tear, but he can still be an effective player. Dockett will likely compete with Tank Carradine for the starting 3-4 end job vacated by Ray McDonald. At the very least, Dockett will be a part-time pass-rusher for the 49ers.
