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).

49ers RB Jeff Wilson shrugs off 10-touchdown season, looks ahead to offseason of work

Even if he doesn't seem overly impressed with what he accomplished in his third NFL season, Jeff Wilson certainly made his case throughout the year that he belongs as one of the top two running backs for the San Francisco 49ers in the foreseeable future. Wilson capped his season with a touchdown run and a touchdown catch in the 49ers' 26-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, giving him a total of ten on the season (seven rushing, three receiving). Those are impressive numbers, but that accomplishment was overshadowed in his mind by what the team wasn't able to do in 2020. "That's not a big a deal. I guess it's nice, but we didn't win," Wilson said after the loss to the Seahawks. "We didn't have a winning season because of it, so that's pretty much

The 2020 season didn't go as planned for the San Francisco 49ers. After coming off a disappointing Super Bowl loss, the team had lofty hopes and looked to make amends for the heartbreaking defeat by once again competing for a championship. An insurmountable number of injuries quickly transformed the roster, and the 49ers were unable to recover, finishing with a 6-10 record and missing the playoffs. The 49ers are expected to bounce back next season, assuming they can safely navigate an uncertain offseason. The team had nearly 40 players playing on the final year of their contracts and have to deal with what is sure to be a greatly reduced salary cap. "We just finished a 6-10 season, and we understand there's a lot of reasons that led to that, but
