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.

Fred Warner: 49ers can win the Super Bowl with Brock Purdy at QB

On Monday morning, NFL legend Jerry Rice declared that everyone on the San Francisco 49ers roster will need to step up their game now that the team is down to QB3 on the depth chart. Rookie Brock Purdy, the last overall pick in this year's draft, will be the quarterback moving forward after Jimmy Garoppolo went down early in Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. "It's going to be up to those guys to elevate their game just a little bit more, make things a little easier for Brock," Rice said on 95.7 The Game. "Get open, so he doesn't have to hold onto the football. And we've still got to continue running the ball, and we've got to rely on that defense to win championships

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner praised his rookie quarterback, Brock Purdy, now the team's starter. The Niners inserting the seventh-round draft pick into the offense hasn't shaken the players' confidence that a Super Bowl remains within reach. Warner had some words for doubters who feel that the 49ers can't achieve their goal with the last overall draft pick under center. "It's such an unlikely story to have Mr. Irrelevant come in, lead the Niners to a Super Bowl," Warner said. "I think that's what everybody's going to write us off on, and that's fine. If that's what everyone wants the narrative to be, I'm completely fine with that. I'm so

How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.
