NFL Lockout Update for Wednesday

Jul 20, 2011 at 11:33 AM--


According to NFL Network, NFL players are expected to review and vote on a CBA settlement today in Washington D.C. San Francisco linebacker Takeo Spikes is in Washington D.C. representing the 49ers.

NFL team owners arrived in Atlanta, Georgia this morning and are expected to be reviewing the potential new CBA. Owners are expected to vote on the settlement on Thursday.

Yesterday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported on his Twitter (@mattbarrows) that the San Francisco 49ers are telling their medical staff to get ready to begin examining players Sunday.

Teams are preparing for a fast and furious free agency period which will likely begin sometime next week and could span only a few days.

UPDATE

A number of players have left the Washington D.C. meeting without a vote taking place. However, it is still possible that a vote could take place remotely, via conference calls, later today.

However, the majority of the players remain in the meeting.

The owners still remain in their meeting in Atlanta, where certain aspects of the settlement could be tweaked. NFL Network states that it looks as though the owners are ready to sign off on the new deal.

While there is no representation by the San Francisco 49ers at the owners meeting today, additional owners are expected to fly in tonight and tomorrow morning.

UPDATE 2

After brief statements by a small number of players, it does not look as though there will be a vote by the players on the new settlement today. The players stated that they do not have enough information or a fully completed document.

However, there are reports that there was a conditional vote today. Meaning, that if certain conditions of the settlement are met, the committee has the players' ok.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional Round playoff contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The 49ers escaped Saturday's playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks relatively unscathed. Only two players, the same ones who were inactive this past weekend due to injuries, did not practice on Wednesday, not counting tackle Trent Williams, who gets a veteran day off. They are quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and cornerback Ambry Thomas. Only three players—wide receiver Jauan Jennings, defensive end Samson Ebukam, and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw—were limited practice participants. The 49ers will benefit from extra rest, having last played on Saturday. They will have seven full



Update: DeMeco Ryans not interviewing for head coaching jobs on 49ers-Cowboys game day, per source

On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans would interview with the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts ahead of the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. "He's going to do those interviews prior to kickoff tomorrow against the Cowboys," Fowler said on-air. "It's a crazy 72-hour window for Ryans. People around the league believe he has traction in Houston. He played six years there, was a great player, played alongside J.J. Watt and others, well respected. ... Ryans will be firmly in the mix on multiple



Brock Purdy impressing Kyle Shanahan as 49ers rookie QB seeks to enter NFL history books

The San Francisco 49ers are now 15-0 when they tie or win the turnover battle. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy's last interception came on January 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He's had moments since then that have come close to resulting in turnovers, but they remained misses by opposing defenses. In Purdy's two playoff games, including Sunday's 19-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys, the quarterback has failed to throw an interception or lose a fumble. He has taken care of the football, and head coach Kyle Shanahan credits that as one of the reasons why the 49ers' impressive 12-game win streak could continue. "Yes, he's been unbelievable with that," Shanahan said via a conference call on Monday. "I think that's the number one thing he's done, and to be



NFL executive reveals what he'd hypothetically offer for 49ers QB Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

The surprising emergence of San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy has left many questioning the future of the team's former starter, Trey Lance. The Niners gave up a lot for the young quarterback, parting ways with multiple first-round picks as part of a package to move up in the draft to acquire Lance. While it seems unlikely that San Francisco would do anything rash, like parting ways with the former No. 3 overall pick, some in the media believe that could happen. "This Brock Purdy thing doesn't look like a fluke," NFL insider Jason La Canfora recently said on CBS Sports' The Zach Gelb Show. "They're going to want some veteran on that team, but I don't know how that all shakes out. Obviously, Trey Lance, do they trade him? Some people I've
