49ers sign LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to a one-year extension

Mar 11, 2022 at 12:43 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to a one-year extension, keeping him with the team through the 2022 season.

San Francisco signed Flannigan-Fowles (6-2, 223) as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona in 2019. The linebacker did not play during his rookie season. In 2021, he registered 29 tackles through 17 game appearances and two starts with the 49ers.

Flannigan-Fowles, 25, has recorded 38 tackles in 28 game appearances and three starts through his two NFL seasons. He was scheduled to become an exclusive-rights free agent.

The move comes a day after the 49ers signed four players—Kevin Givens and Maurice Hurst, running back JaMycal Hasty, and offensive lineman Colton McKivitz—to one-year extensions and signed quarterback Nate Sudfeld to a reserve/future contract.

George Kittle wishes the 49ers didn't delay Deebo Samuel extension

Earlier this week, Bleacher Report listed what it believes is the one offseason regret for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the team not locking wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a contract extension earlier—before the receiver market exploded earlier in the offseason and Samuel requested to be traded. One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the

One week after Washington Commanders star receiver Terry McLaurin was a no-show at mandatory minicamp, the 26-year-old reached an agreement with the organization, signing a three-year, $71 million deal, according to Adam Schefter. Further contract details came out about McLaurin's deal, as Schefter revealed that the former Ohio State receiver got a $28 million signing bonus, which serves as the largest of all time by a receiver. Additionally, McLaurin gets $53.154 million guaranteed, penciling right behind fellow fourth-year receiver A.J. Brown, who received a four-year, $100 million deal from the Philadelphia Eagles with $57 million guaranteed. Here's the full



One area Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers must improve

Two massive games. Two double-digit 4th quarter leads. Two heart-breaking losses. You can stop right there and fans of the San Francisco 49ers know exactly what you're talking about. Painfully, the franchise that once referred to itself as "Camelot," and became the first NFL team to win five Super Bowls, has experienced some difficult losses. There were three consecutive heartbreaking losses in the Jim Harbaugh days. And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up. Whether it's that



49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,
