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.

Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so

Some defensive line help may be on the way. It looks like Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah's gamble to turn down an offer from the San Francisco 49ers and await a better offer from a more desperate team paid off. That more desperate team, however, is now the 49ers after second-year defensive end Nick Bosa left Week 2's win over the New York Jets with what is believed to be a season-ending ACL injury. The 49ers are flying in Ansah, 31, to meet up with the team on the East Coast, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The expectation is that the defender will sign with the team after going through another round of COVID-19
