Rumor: Martz might welcome Isaac Bruce

Jan 11, 2008 at 4:49 PM--

Steve Korte of the Belleville News-Democrat seems to feel that if veteran wide receiver Isaac Bruce were cut by the St. Louis Rams, that he almost certanly would be welcomed in San Francisco with open arms by new offensive coordinator Mike Martz.

The Rams may cut Bruce to keep from paying him a $2 million roster bonus this spring. Bruce is 35 years old. He had 733 receiving yards last year and 1,098 in 2006.

Drake Jackson's usage might vary week to week; Young 49ers CBs have an opportunity vs. Packers

Maybe soon, Drake Jackson will become the complementary bookend to Nick Bosa that the San Francisco 49ers envisioned for Dee Ford. That was the hope when the team used its first selection in this year's draft, a second-round pick, on the defensive end out of USC. DeMeco Ryans is in his second year as the 49ers' defensive coordinator. He is working to ensure young players like Jackson are prepared for the rigors of an NFL season. He also wants to put those players in the best position to succeed. Their success is the 49ers' success, after all. For now, it looks like the 49ers have Samson Ebukam penciled in as the starter opposite Bosa. That role should eventually land with Jackson. "With Drake, he's coming along," Ryans told reporters after Wednesday's practice.
