AJ Jenkins is a 49er

Our staff knows how to develop players now. He will produce next year...or else.

Would have no problems eating up a plate of crow meat if he does that.....Would enjoy ever bit of it...Mmmmmm

I will gladly eat crow big time....this guy is on the verge of Rashaun Woods 2.0.

Wasn't Woods active all 16 games his rookie season?

49ers WR A.J. Jenkins will train with Colin Kaepernick in Atlanta this offseason and wants to return as a "totally different player" in 2013.

"I'm going to make that happen and come back bigger, faster, stronger," said Jenkins. "I'm going to be accountable this offseason and make myself the kind of player that they want me to be." Jenkins was active for just three games in 2012 after being a first-round pick, catching zero passes. He's expected to have a much bigger role next season with Randy Moss and Ted Ginn being free agents."

I am so scared this guy is going to be a colossal bust in the R. Woods mold. I remember him talking some stuff about hooking up with Jerry Rice but never heard anything of it, although to be fair if memory serves Vernon did the same thing.

We will see I spose though one would kind of expect that they would train on the west side. Kap move to Atlanta?


Edit: Saw where some teamates were starting training next week in Atlanta

I believe there is a pro athlete training facility there, I remember allot of players saying they train in ATL.

Good to hear that from Jenkins, best guess is that he slacked off learning the offense because he was solely a scout WR for most the season and didn't put in the extra time it would take to learn two offenses (scout and SF).

Atl from Jax is only a few hours away...its much closer to home for him
I'm not sure how you can write off a player who wasn't expected to play much anyway. Crabtree didn't do a whole lot his first 5 years and look at him now. If he goes belly up next year and shows no improvement then I'll be upset but I'm not gonna overreact after this year and call him a bust.

Crabs just completed his 4th year......

and he did manage to catch a ball or two his first year
Jenkins is a bust. Yes, I know it was his first year,but what first round draft pick never gets on the field. This isn't college. You don't red shirt 1st round picks. Thier expected to help the team. That's why thier drafted in the 1st round. Sad as it is we need another wideout for what the 3 year in a row.


P.S. What is with this new front office having trouble drafting good wideouts by the way. They just suck at it. I mean other then Crabtree.

Was Carson Palmer a bust because he didnt play at all his first season? How about Aaron Rodgers?
Jenkins was a bust for his rookie season but he can definitely get out of that and be very good for us.

Yeah but he said first round picks.
If I remember correctly, John Taylor sat his first year as well and look how he turned out. Could be wrong on that but anyway some players just take more time to get it at the NFL level.

I'm willing to give him this next year. With another full offseason, he should start coming around and could really make a difference for us cause Moss is gone and Manningham may take awhile to get back.

heres hoping!
