MARCUS LATTIMORE WAS a 49er!

Looking forward to returning to this thread after the pre-season is over. Wonder what it's gonna look like at that point

He and Ian just need to take it slow(er)...

I remember that! But did it really take 2 years?

didn't the niners shelf jesse sapolu for 2 years?

seriously no need to rush lattimore
Hope he takes his time to get on the field when he is 100% healthy. No need to rush at all.
Guys he's just there so we make full use of the PUP list - he had a tweaked hammy in OTA's so we're just playing safe for training camp. There is no new injury or problem - it's roster management at this stage.

No need to panic.

Sounds like his knees are sound. Just a matter of getting the rest of his legs up to speed.

I remember Sherrard, I forgot he broke his leg and took some time to recover. I knew it took a while but I forgot it was 2 years. As for sapoulu, I don't remember him being seriously injured. Michael Carter and Kevin f*gan were though - and both took quite a bit of time to get back on the field, but they were dominant players for us during the dynasty years.

I think Ricky missed only one year. A broken ankle I believe.

Agreed, it's a strategic move...hopefully.
It's all good. I don't think you can use the pup list if a guy attends training camp right? They'll make a decision about week 2 of preseason whether he'll take contact or not. And -- it's cool if the answer is no. 2 years to see production is not too long to wait for this guy...

Just a thought. We have a ton of depth at the RB position. Gore might be gone next year and Hunter is a FA. Does anybody think the Niners plan on keeping Lattimore on the PUP for the year and not lose a year of his contract. This lets them keep an extra guy somewhere else and Lattimore comes on next year when Hunter and maybe Gore leave. Just a thought.

I think this is very possible and why not with our depth? This assumes James makes it mostly as a KR (still scares me). We also have Jewel Hampton if we need anymore depth and he's been training for years. So Gore/Hyde and Hunter/James and I.R.-designation Lattimore and if we go down a RB, bring back Hampton.
