San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis will not be headed to the UFC ... that we know of ... yet. The article stating that the mixed martial arts organization had agreed to a deal with 49ers All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis, was indeed an April Fools story brought to you by 49erswebzone.com.

The staff of 49erswebzone.com would like to once again thank you for making April Fools Day enjoyable and for helping to spread the article around. It was even mentioned on NBC Bay Area's website.

Also, we tortured our forum members a bit by messing with their minds. Some saw the viral music video 'Friday' by Rebecca Black automatically inserted into all of their posts. Others, through some additional trickery, thought everyone within the Parking Lot portion of the forum were talking about them when the word "I" was replaced with the viewer's username everywhere. And then there were those that had the word "49ers" replaced with "Cowboys" within our Niner Talk forum.

It was all in good fun and we appreciate everyone putting up with our self-entertainment.

From Patrick Willis' Twitter account:

What r ppl talking about UFC. I never said anything about UFC. I just got on twitter now to read all this lol someone got alot of ppl

In any interview with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, a question or two about his quarterback eventually comes up. After all, the media has been quick to toss much of the blame for February's Super Bowl loss on Jimmy Garoppolo's shoulders. The offseason flirtation with the idea of potentially adding Tom Brady gave the media even more ammo in the assault on the 49ers' signal-caller. Chris Simms of NBC Sports got his close friend, Shanahan, to return to his Chris Simms Unbuttoned podcast, which is an interesting hour-long interview, if you have the time. Simms asked the 49ers coach what he will try to preach to Garoppolo
