49ers work out Indiana WR Mitchell Paige and UNC-Pembroke kicker

Apr 20, 2017 at 9:02 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers worked out or visited with Indiana wide receiver and punt returner Mitchell Paige, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Paige has also met with the Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots, and Atlanta Falcons.

Paige ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash, had a vertical jump of 31.5 inches, and a broad jump of 116 inches at his pro day earlier this month. The 5-foot-7 receiver was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine. Over his college career with the Hoosiers, Paige had a total of 115 receptions for 1,330 yards and 10 touchdowns in two seasons as a starting receiver. He also returned two punts for touchdowns on special teams.

"I'm not a track star," Paige told the school newspaper. "Whatever I'm doing, just let myself do it. Whatever they want me to do, need me to do to get me a chance, that's what I'm gonna do."

The team has also held a private workout for UNC-Pembroke kicker Matt Davis, per Wilson. He has also taken part in workouts for the Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, and Carolina Panthers.

Davis finished his college career with the Braves as the holder of multiple school records and was considered to be one of the nation's top kickers. He set a NCAA record for accuracy over his time with UNC-Pembroke, completing 37 of his 44 attempts (84.1-percent). During his senior year, Davis was part of a Braves program that became the first in history to earn a playoff victory and reach 10 wins. He set school records for longest field goal (58 yards) and longest punt (78 yards).

The San Francisco 49ers entered the offseason motivated by February's Super Bowl defeat. Maybe that wasn't enough because the team gained some extra motivation the hard way on Sunday after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset 24-20 win at Levi's Stadium. The loss forces San Francisco to play catchup with the rest of the division. It is the only NFC West squad that suffered a defeat during Week 1. The 49ers are back to work this week and beginning preparations for their two-game road trip to the East Coast, where they will face the New York Jets and New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in back-to-back weekends. The team's focus remains on the opponent

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Tight end George Kittle missed his third practice of the week and has been ruled "out" of Sunday's game due to a knee injury. Kittle suffered the injury just before halftime during Week 1's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Cornerback Jason Verrett is the only other 49ers player who has officially been ruled "out" — other than those on injury lists. Defensive end Dee Ford experienced some neck stiffness this week and underwent further tests. He has been listed as "questionable" to play against the Jets. On the Jets' side, wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

Don't count out Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers just yet, says Chris Simms

Things looked dire as the San Francisco 49ers left MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The team had seemingly lost two defenders to severe injuries, the starting quarterback, top two running backs, and others. Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas were later confirmed to be lost for the season with ACL injuries. The news was better for Jimmy Garoppolo, but the quarterback is still week-to-week with a high-ankle sprain. Raheem Mostert isn't expected to miss too much time, but the same isn't true for Tevin Coleman, who head coach Kyle Shanahan said may miss four weeks and is a candidate for short-term injured reserve. After watching Shanahan's squad plummet in power rankings, one
