In addition to the earlier legal developments this week, he won't have to worry about the charge of second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama anymore.

    Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens is finally returning to football – sort of. He will be on the cover of the video game, Madden NFL 19: Hall of Fame Edition. The more expensive version of the game (around $80 compared to the $60 cost of the standard edition) will feature three-day early access, 12 gold team fantasy packs, an elite legends player – like Owens – for ultimate team, and more, according to IGN. Owens will grace the video game cover in a Dallas Cowboys uniform, the team he was with from 2006-08. Before that, he spent his first eight NFL seasons with the San...

    Defensive end Cassius Marsh never doubted how good quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be. He was briefly a teammate of Garoppolo's with the New England Patriots. The Patriots traded for Marsh on September 2, 2017, and he spent nearly three months with the team before being waived at the end of November. During that time, Marsh had an opportunity to watch Garoppolo make throws against his defense in practices. The San Francisco 49ers claimed Marsh off waivers and were awarded the edge defender the day after the Patriots let him go. Just three weeks after the 49ers traded for Garoppolo, Marsh reunited with his former teammate. When Garoppolo took the 49ers on a five-game winning streak to end the season, Marsh was not surprised at all. "I already knew...

    The San Francisco 49ers welcomed back Reuben Foster on Thursday, a team spokesman confirmed.

    We still hear from several of the Niner Faithful how bizarre it is to see cornerback Richard Sherman in San Francisco 49ers red and gold. After all, the All-Pro veteran spent his previous seven NFL seasons with the division-rival Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers signed Sherman to a three-year deal the day after Seattle released him in March. The cornerback is recovering from a ruptured Achilles suffered in November, and the hope is he can return to his pre-injury form. 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh does not doubt that Sherman can make a full recovery and be a key contributor in 2018. "He's an animal when it comes to taking care of himself and preparing himself to play football games,"...

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was thrown into a situation where he had to quickly learn a complicated playbook after the team traded for him at last year's mid-season point. Despite the circumstances, he flourished last season when thrust into the starting quarterback role. Garoppolo led the 49ers to an undefeated December, winning each of the team's final five games of the season. San Francisco rewarded him in February with a five-year deal worth up to $137.5 million. At the time, it was the richest deal in NFL history. Garoppolo finally has an opportunity to learn Kyle Shanahan's offense at a more reasonable pace and has been working hard to do so this offseason. Shanahan was asked at the 49ers' State of the Franchise event on Wednesday night...

    The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities this week. Tuesday's practice was the first that was open to the media. Two other sessions will be made available in the coming weeks. During Tuesday's practice, reporters noticed that the defensive coaching staff was getting a little help. It appeared to have an extra coach working with the defensive backs. The 49ers signed cornerback Richard Sherman in March. He is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles sustained in November and has not yet been medically cleared to practice. Until that happens, Sherman isn't happy merely being an observer. He was seen working with the young secondary, offering advice when needed, and helping the group improve its techniques. Until Sherman is cleared...

    The San Francisco 49ers unveiled a new design for the team's alternate uniforms at the State of the Franchise event on Wednesday night. The new uniforms resemble the throwback versions the team wore for most of the 1994 season, complete with a throwback version of the helmet. San Francisco won the Super Bowl at the end of that season. Those uniforms were part of the league's 75th anniversary and were a throwback themselves to the jerseys worn by the team during the 1955 season. The uniforms will be worn for one game during the upcoming season. "We loved the opportunity to marry the history and heritage of the 49ers franchise with the modern innovation of our latest football chassis, the Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform," said Nike Art Director of NFL...

    Judge Nona Klippen ruled on Wednesday that there was insufficient evidence to proceed with the domestic violence case against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster. Foster was facing felony charges of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon. The judge dropped the former two charges while reducing the weapon charge to a misdemeanor. The pretrial date for that charge is set for June 6. Safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Adrian Colbert were at the courthouse in Santa Clara on Wednesday as a show of support for their teammate. With the domestic violence charges dropped, Foster is free to rejoin the 49ers. He has...

    The National Football League adopted a new policy on Wednesday morning that will require team personnel and players to stand during the national anthem. Those who do not wish to do so may remain in the team's locker room or a similar location off of the field until the anthem is complete. What will happen if players choose to be on the field with their teammates but not stand during the anthem? The NFL could be fine the team and personnel or players might face discipline from the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell attempted to imply that there was a sense of unity in the league's decision to move forward with the new policy. "[The new policy] was unanimously adopted by the clubs," Goodell said on Wednesday. The policy, however, does...

    The San Francisco 49ers finished their second day of organized team activities on Tuesday, and a contingent of players made the 32-mile trek from Levi's Stadium (or next door to it) to Oracle Arena. Defensive backs Ahkello Witherspoon, Adrian Colbert, and Chanceller James headed to Oakland to watch the home-team Golden State Warriors take on the Houston Rockets in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals. Gianna Suter-Franco of 95.7 The Game spotted the trio for a quick interview. While Witherspoon rocked a yellow Warriors hat, Colbert was at the game representing his quarterback and wearing a Jimmy Garoppolo jersey. "Jimmy G, we out here, man," Colbert said. "We locker mates. That's my dawg. I support him 100-percent. He's going to be the greatest quarterback...

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon is excited about showcasing his abilities within head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. He knows what Shanahan did with running backs during his time as the offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons – names like Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. McKinnon is replacing Carlos Hyde as the team's featured running back. In a Shanahan offense, that can be a lot of pressure. However, McKinnon is not concerned with what happened before he joined the 49ers. Instead, he is focused on what he can bring to the offense. "I have a lot of respect for Carlos," McKinnon told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area during the...

    San Francisco 49ers guard Jonathan Cooper has not practiced with the team as he continues to recover from MCL surgery in January. The missed time has given Joshua Garnett, along with newly signed offensive lineman Mike Person, an opportunity to work with the first-team offense this week. Garnett, who the 49ers made a first-round pick in 2016, spent all of last season on injured reserve. He injured his knee during a training camp practice and had surgery on August 10, 2017, to "clean out" the knee. While Garnett could have returned at some point last season, the 49ers wanted him to use the year off to get into better shape. "I've been very proud of how he handled his year off," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of Garnett on Tuesday. "Some guys, when they go through...

    The San Francisco 49ers roster has seen a massive transition since head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch took it over from the previous regime last year. Shanahan was asked on Tuesday how he would assess the work he and Lynch have done to transform the 49ers to match their vision for the roster. "I've been happy with it," Shanahan said. "I thought we had a lot of work to do when we got here. Just looking at our roster, where we're at over a year time span, we've got one guy on our offense who has started before we got here in Joe Staley. I want to say we've got three guys left for the entire offense with (Garrett) Celek, Joe Staley, (Joshua) Garnett, and (Aaron) Burbridge. So that would be four guys. "And that takes a lot of work....
