Things to know as free agency approaches...

Feb 28, 2008 at 3:59 PM--


If you have not been around for free agency in the past, this is pretty much how it pans out.

Tonight will just be a lot of guess work by the media and the fans. It should be taken for what it is ... guessing. The media and fans will try to predict who will be contacted by which teams and who will be visiting.

For example, last year, there were many rumors flying around about linebacker Adalius Thomas. Some rumors even had him staying in Santa Clara the night free agency started. Not only was Thomas not in the Bay Area, but he never visited with the 49ers and signed with the Patriots instead.

However, Friday will likely be the day when all of the excitement begins. While rumors will continue to fly, deals are not likely to occur until close to the afternoon, once the free agents visiting have had a chance to visit with the team in Santa Clara.

49ers beat writers like Matt Maiocco and Matt Barrows will likely be on hand at the team's facility and keep fans updated on their blogs.

So for those hoping to hear some exciting news tonight, the news will likely just be rumors.

Things don't get any easier for the 49ers, who will travel to Foxborough this weekend to face the New England Patriots before matchups against the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints. The 49ers received some more bad news on the injury front. Coach Shanahan informed reporters that featured

Richard Sherman calls 49ers-Dolphins a 'perfect storm of bad things,' doesn't mention recovery time from injury

Cornerback Richard Sherman has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. He had to watch last Sunday as his team, the San Francisco 49ers, were shockingly routed at home by the Miami Dolphins. One of the criticisms this week against the 49ers coaching staff is the decision to start Brian Allen, who was activated from the practice squad a day before taking the field. "It was just a perfect storm of things going bad," Sherman said on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which he co-hosts. "It's unfortunate. Brian Allen was kind of put in a tough position, didn't get enough days (of) practice, didn't get enough reps to be adequately prepared, unfortunately. That's no fault of his own. There were some situations going on that prevented
