49ers sign former Falcons guard Ben Garland to a one-year deal

Apr 23, 2019 at 3:38 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday that the team signed guard Ben Garland to a one-year deal.

The Denver Broncos signed Garland as an undrafted free agent out of Air Force in 2010. He was placed on the Reserve/Military List to serve his two-year military commitment and returned to the Broncos in 2012, where he spent two years (2012-13) on the practice squad.

Garland, 31, started his career as a defensive lineman before moving to the offensive line in 2012. He has 54 game appearances and seven starts through his five NFL seasons.

Garland spent the past four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, which includes the two years (2015-16) 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spent there as the team's offensive coordinator. He spent time on the practice squad before being promoted to the active roster on December 15, 2015.

Garland (6-5, 308) appeared in 46 games with seven starts along the defensive and offensive lines over the next three seasons and appeared in 14 games with four starts at guard and on special teams in 2018.

Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary vetoed trade for Ben Roethlisberger

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger? According to an article by Dan Pompei of The Athletic, it could have happened. In 2009, then-head coach Mike Singletary was called into a meeting with CEO Jed York and director of player personnel Trent Baalke. A trade was in place with the Pittsburgh Steelers for Roethlisberger, who had recently been accused of sexual assault. Singletary vetoed the deal, per the report. The 49ers had Alex Smith, a former first-round pick. To that point, the quarterback had been a disappointment, but Singletary



With some outside help from a former 49ers nemesis, Robbie Gould kicks his team into NFC Championship Game

Had it not been for a couple of assists from the outside, it's possible that San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould might not have been able to hit the game-winning kick that sent his team into the NFC Championship. Gould accounted for seven points (two field goals, one extra point) in the 49ers' 13-10 win over the Green Bay Packers in Saturday night's Divisional Playoff game, with his biggest moment coming on a 45-yard field goal through wintery conditions as time expired to send the 49ers home victorious. Credit Gould with making the kick in such conditions, but he also asked for some help before the game that wound up making a difference in the end. In preparation for what he knew would be a difficult weather environment at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Gould



Jimmy Garoppolo one of the reasons Colin Cowherd predicts 49ers to upset Cowboys

San Francisco 49ers fans are confident their team will emerge with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys this weekend, the opening weekend of the NFL playoffs. Kyle Shanahan's squad has become a bit of a sexy Wild Card pick. The Cowboys are favored by three points, and the Niners are the road team. They boarded a Dallas-bound plane after Friday's practice and enter the matchup with a lot of confidence. The 49ers also could be healthier than they have been all season. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is still dealing with a thumb injury, but he delivered a gutsy performance in last weekend's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He's just one of the



Packers praise 49ers WR Deebo Samuel: 'One of the more elite players in this league'

There's something significantly different about San Francisco 49ers on offense this week compared to where they were when they played the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 of the regular season. That difference is the role of wide receiver Deebo Samuel, whose emergence as a running back throughout the course of the season makes the 49ers more difficult to stop than they were when they fell 30-28 to the Packers at Levi's Stadium on September 26. Samuel had two carries for zero yards in that game, giving him a total of four carries for eight yards over his first three games. He had six total carries over his first nine games before exploding over the second half of the season to finish with 59 carries for 365 yards and eight touchdowns to go with his receiving stats of
