49ers will work out pass rusher Elvis Dumervil

Jun 1, 2017 at 2:26 PM--


Free-agent pass rusher Elvis Dumervil will be among the players scheduled to work out for the San Francisco 49ers in the next couple of days, per Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Dumervil spent the first seven years of his career with the Denver Broncos, the team that drafted the linebacker in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He has spent the past four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. During his career, he has accumulated 352 tackles, 99 sacks, 23 forced fumbles, and an interception during regular-season play.

The five-time Pro Bowl pass rusher was released by the Ravens on March 8th. Dumervil played in just eight games for Baltimore last season and started three. However, he still managed to get to opposing quarterbacks three times in 2016 during his limited play. Dumervil has had two 17-sack seasons over his 11-year career. Once in 2009 with Denver and another in 2014 with Baltimore.

Dumervil, 33, could be a fit for the 49ers' "Leo" spot, a position reserved for a team's best pass rusher. The 49ers have been experimenting with 2015 first-round selection, Arik Armstead, at that spot during offseason practices.

Dumervil is a former teammate of current 49ers general manager John Lynch. The two played together in Denver in 2006 and 2007.

Nick Bosa has the potential to be a force along the San Francisco 49ers defensive line for years to come. The young pass rusher was as good as advertised during his first NFL season, a campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The 49ers' all-time sack leader, Bryant Young, loves what he sees in Bosa. Young joined KNBR on Thursday to discuss his impending induction into the 49ers Hall of Fame and offered up a scouting report of the second-year defender. "I think his ceiling is very high, just coming in," Young told Greg Papa and John Lund. "And the way he played and carried himself on the edge; great use of hands, good knee bend, he understands angles, very balanced, and he has really good leverage and uses his strength

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old

49ers insider discusses the possibility of George Kittle holding out for a new contract

You probably remember Matt Barrows of The Athletic earlier this month revealing that "someone in the know" felt the San Francisco 49ers and tight end George Kittle would ultimately land on a contract extension worth around $13 million a year. Barrows also discussed the possibility of Kittle playing hardball with the 49ers, and refusing to report to training camp. The reporter couldn't envision that happening given the tight end's character and actions this offseason. "That's just not who Kittle is," Barrows explained. "He's been taking part in all of the Zoom classroom sessions this offseason. He was on hand for the workouts in Nashville. My guess — and
