Chiefs’ Chris Ballard declines to interview with 49ers

Jan 2, 2017 at 4:25 PM--


Kansas City Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard was one of the first executives that the San Francisco 49ers requested to interview for their vacant general manager position.

Contrary to a report earlier today by Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle that Ballard had agreed to meet with the 49ers, it would seem that he has turned down the request. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Ballard believes he has a good situation in Kansas City and will not meet with the 49ers.

Where 49ers' Trey Lance landed in Chris Simms' QB rankings

Last year, NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms ranked Trey Lance at No. 38 in his top 40 NFL quarterbacks. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback jumped up the ranking in his second year, but not by much. Simms has last year's No. 3 overall pick listed at No. 31 in his 2022 quarterback ranking. Simms admits it was challenging to figure out where to place Lance within his ranking. Lance only started two games during his rookie campaign and played just 178 snaps. Most expect him to be the 49ers' starter come Week 1. Although, there are certainly those who doubt that will happen. "I

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall

Undrafted free agents play an integral role these days for every NFL team, with the San Francisco 49ers certainly being among the teams to have gotten some significant contributions from the undrafted players they've discovered over the past few years.

Here's a look at ten undrafted players the 49ers signed and developed during the Lynch-Shanahan era who went on to make a mark on Sundays. 10. RB JaMycal Hasty (2020, Baylor) - Hasty has helped on offense and on special teams over the past two seasons. He



Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on
