49ers tender one-year contracts to NT Mike Purcell and LB Carl Bradford

Feb 27, 2017 at 1:27 PM--


On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers announced that they have tendered one-year contracts to exclusive rights free agents NT Mike Purcell and LB Carl Bradford.

Purcell (6-3, 303) appeared in 15 games in 2016, starting five. He finished the season with 26 tackles and one forced fumble. Since signing with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2013, Purcell has appeared in 25 games, starting eight, and made 48 tackles, 2 sacks and one forced fumble.

Bradford (6-1, 248) was claimed off waivers from the Green Bay Packers in December. He appeared in just two games with the 49ers last season and made two tackles on defense and added two on special teams.

Exclusive rights free agents have fewer than three years of NFL experience and no ability to negotiate should their team present a qualifying offer. The tenders are not guaranteed. Last year, the 49ers tendered G Jordan Devey and he ended up getting cut on May 6.

On Thursday, Bovada had the San Francisco 49ers with the fifth-best odds to land quarterback Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans. Those odds haven't budged. One sportsbook, however, has San Francisco with much better odds. That would be DraftKings, who have the 49ers with the second-best odds to have Watson on the roster for Week 1 of the 2021 season (h/t to Patrick Tulini). Below are the teams with the five best odds to acquire Watson, per DraftKings. It's a significant jump from the +1100 odds San Francisco held with the sportsbook just days ago. Texans +200 49ers



49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk says his son can be anything except a fan of this one team

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's mother is a San Francisco 49ers fan. She was a fan even before her favorite team drafted her son. "My mom has been a huge 49ers fan her whole life," Aiyuk told reporters shortly after being drafted, "so that kind of bled on me a little bit when I was younger." Aiyuk was asked if that fandom stuck with him throughout his childhood. "So, I wouldn't say a fan throughout," he responded. "I just kind of just move with players. But, definitely, when I was younger, I was rolling with the 49ers because of my mom." Aiyuk and his girlfriend, Rochelle, had a son, Braylon, in September. Now that Aiyuk is a father,



ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been
