Daunte Culpepper still at the team’s headquarters

Aug 15, 2011 at 1:04 PM--


Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) of the Sacramento Bee is reporting via Twitter that quarterback Daunte Culpepper is still on the premises of the San Francisco 49ers headquarters / practice facility.

Culpepper is having a post-workout lunch.

It is speculated that the team may sign Culpepper to be the third quarterback on the roster, and that the starting competition remains a two-man race between Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.

According to Barrows, former Sacramento Mountain Lions (UFL) tight end Nate Lawrie says that Culpepper should not have a problem picking up the 49ers offense since the Mountain Lions ran a West Coast Offense themselves.

John Lynch: Brock Purdy continuing to evaluate options, 49ers still expect 6-month recovery

By David Bonilla

There was concern that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy might require reconstruction of the torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow of his throwing arm rather than a repair, lengthening his recovery from about six months to maybe a year. However, nothing has led the 49ers to believe the more extensive procedure is required. Purdy suffered the injury during Sunday's NFC Championship Game when Eagles pass rusher Haason Reddick hit his arm in the first quarter. He returned to the game in the second half after backup Josh Johnson was ruled out with a concussion, but Purdy could not throw the football, attempting just one pass after the injury. "Yeah, I think he's continuing to get some different opinions, talk to different people, which I think



Brandon Aiyuk: 49ers were "hands down" the best team in the NFL

You can argue that the San Francisco 49ers were the most talented of the four teams on Championship Weekend. One Niners player believes that to be the case. Luck just wasn't on their side against the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Brock Purdy exited the game with a UCL tear, and his backup, Josh Johnson, was forced out with a concussion in the second half. Purdy returned to the game, but the injury prevented him from throwing. So, lacking a quarterback who could throw the football, it was run, run, and run some more for much of the game. "Man, it was tough. It was weird," wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk told Brad Graham of TheSFNiners. "It was definitely a weird situation. I've never been in any

John Lynch committed to remaining the 49ers' GM, improving team

On Wednesday, John Lynch was asked if he plans to remain the San Francisco 49ers general manager in 2023. The question was presented because Amazon courted Lynch last year, hoping to lure the executive back to the broadcast booth for Thursday Night Football games. Lynch turned down a significant pay raise to remain with the 49ers because he felt there was unfinished business. Lynch still feels that way. How did he respond when asked if he would stick around with head coach Kyle Shanahan and the team? "I think so. You good, Kyle?" Lynch said, laughing and looking at Shanahan, who sat beside him for their end-of-season press conference. Obviously, his mind is made up. The 49ers put together a competitive roster in 2022, one that might have
