What a bummer, Balmer!

maybe they can take away his few sacks he had in college hahaha, so he can retire with no sacks college or pro

Have to wonder how much longer Kentwan Balmer is going to be with the 49ers.

Kentwan Balmer is not excused from practice. He has been made aware that he's not excused, the team announced.

In other words, Balmer is officially AWOL

49ers say Kentwan Balmer's absence is unexcused. This might be his last day on the team.
this camp has been super f**ked up, every day is a new twist
This is why these young players should not get so much money at once...some of them just cannot handle it and exhibit irresponsible behavior. As the parent of two 20-somethings, these players who get a lot of up front $$$ should get an allowance or something, if they cannot act like adults. We are about to discharge a first-round pick who has PRODUCED NOTHING.
Balmer is No-Show, Future Uncertain

SANTA CLARA -- Defensive end Kentwan Balmer, the 49ers' first-round draft pick in 2008, was not on the 49ers' practice field Wednesday morning, and his future with the club appears tenuous.

Coach Mike Singletary granted Balmer a two-day leave to deal with a personal matter. Balmer was expected to return to practice Wednesday.

Balmer's agent, Gary Wichard, told Comcast SportsNet on Tuesday that Balmer was dealing with family matters. Balmer has yet to comment publicly on his situation.

Balmer been a disappointment in his first two NFL seasons, and figured to be in a battle to earn a roster spot this season.

When he left the team, Balmer was not among the 49ers' top defensive linemen behind presumptive starters Isaac Sopoaga, Justin Smith and Aubrayo Franklin. He also appears to be situated behind Ray McDonald, Ricky Jean-Francois, Demetric Evans and, perhaps, Khalif Mitchell on the depth chart.

49ers don't know Kentwan Balmer's whereabouts. They've gotten word to him or his representatives that his absence is unexcused

Team does not believe Balmer's absence has anything to do with NCAA investigation. His agent said Balmer is dealing with family issue.

is refusing to participate and no call no show training camp a voidable contract issue?
I guess his girlfriend broke up with him so he has to try and get her back?????It takes time to talk girls into giving you a second chance. Maybe he should ask Sing for another day off so he can shop for flowers for her.
