Rumor Mill: Jennings’ days as a Niner are over

Nov 6, 2007 at 3:48 PM--


According to ProFootballTalk's Rumor Mill, takle Jonas Jennings' days with the 49ers may be over.

From ProFootballTalk:
Though many league insiders and observers are skeptical about whether 49ers left tackle Jonas Jennings was placed on injured reserve because he actually has an injury that prevents him from playing or because the team decided he was a pain in the butt and didn't want to give him the freedom that he likely craves, a league source tells us that Jennings is legitimately injured -- but that Jennings' days with the team are over.

From ProFootballTalk:
Because the 2006 Collective Bargaining Agreement removed the right of NFL teams to send players home with pay, the Niners' only ability to rid themselves of Jennings for the rest of the year without cutting him was to put him on IR. Though we presume that Jennings could challenge the injured reserve designation, he likely is content to get the balance of his 2007 base salary of $3.65 million and then hit the market again in 2008.

Signed through 2011, Jennings is due to make base salaries of $3.45 million, $4.2 million, $4.3 million, and $5.15 million over the next four seasons. In theory, he could be traded. But he likely would want more money from a new team, which could prevent a deal from getting done.

Steady Brock Purdy gives 49ers what they needed at QB in win over Cowboys

By Kirk Larrabee
Jan 22

Quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't quite at his best in the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he made more than enough plays to help the 49ers advance and add another chapter to the amazing story of his rookie season. The win moved Purdy to 7-0 as a starter and gave him his second playoff victory, which is an outstanding start for any rookie quarterback, whether they were selected first overall in the draft or last, as Purdy was in 2022. Along the way Purdy did enough to continue to impress his teammates as well as those watching him at home, including former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expressed his praise for Purdy on Twitter.



20 quick observations from the 49ers' playoff win over the Cowboys

We started the season asking if Trey Lance could lead the San Francisco 49ers deep into the playoffs in his first season as the starting quarterback. Yet here we are watching Brock Purdy do that very thing, but as a rookie. And now Purdy has a chance to be the first rookie QB in NFL history to lead his team to the Super Bowl. Here are my quick observations from the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Round win over the Dallas Cowboys. Do punters get nervous, too? Mitch Wishnowsky had two bad punts to start the game. He settled down and finished strong, though. Stop talking bad about Deommodore Lenoir. He's made big plays in back-to-back weeks. Brandon Aiyuk is such a smooth route runner.

The NFC Championship game is here. It's number one against number two, and the San Francisco 49ers are the underdogs on the road. It seems the 49ers have to play a perfect game to beat the number-one team in football. If the 49ers want a trip to the Super Bowl, they must stick to these keys to victory against the Philadelphia Eagles. Attack with the Run The Eagles' run defense is ranked 17th in the league allowing, on average, 121.6 yards per game. As ferocious as their pass rush is, the Eagles struggle to stop the run. Good thing the 49ers like to run the ball with their plethora of running backs. Expect running backs Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell (assuming he plays; Mitchell is questionable due to a groin injury) to lead the way. Head coach Kyle
