Talk at Senior Bowl links Mark Dominik to 49ers

Jan 25, 2017 at 3:07 PM--


Apparently, the San Francisco 49ers' general manager search has a lot of NFL personnel guys talking at the Senior Bowl this week. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that there is a lot of talk linking former Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik to the 49ers in some role.


Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will likely become the 49ers' newest head coach following the Super Bowl. Dominik was Tampa Bay's pro scouting director in 2004 and 2005 when Shanahan was an assistant with the Buccaneers. Dominik's name was one that Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee linked to Shanahan should things go south with Minnesota Vikings assistant general manager George Paton and Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough.

Paton was reportedly the frontrunner for the 49ers job. However, the Indianapolis Colts requested to interview the Vikings executive following the firing of general manager Ryan Grigson. Until then, San Francisco was the only team in search of a general manager.

The 49ers are scheduled to meet with Shanahan, Paton, and McDonough on Saturday to determine which pairing, if any, would work for the organization as the team attempts a massive rebuild.

It is important to note that nowhere in La Canfora's tweet does he specifically state that Dominik is being linked to the 49ers' vacant general manager job, but just to the organization itself in some role. Dominik served as the Buccaneers' general manager from 2009 through 2013. Prior to that, he was their director of pro scouting for 12 years.

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



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



Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early
