Mike Reinfeldt update

We hear it won't be long before the Niners add a heavyweight executive with NFL experience to the team's front office who will have significant power within the organization. At the top of the list of prospective hires — we hear the team has had talks with at least four candidates — is Seahawks vice president/football administration Mike Reinfeldt, a key behind-the-scenes contributor to Seattle's success in 2005.

Rumph back at corner

When Niners DB Mike Rumph returns from his plantar-fascia injury this offseason, word is he'll do so as a cornerback. The team tried to convert Rumph into a safety last season but concluded that the former first-round pick was unable to develop the vision needed for the position.

Rookie advice from Alex Smith

Niners QB Alex Smith told PFW at the Super Bowl what advice he would have for a young quarterback like Matt Leinart or Vince Young as a highly touted rookie: "Your rookie year is so unique, and every situation is different. But as much coverage as the NFL gets, there are going to be bumps in the road, and people are going to start talking about you and different things. And of course, those guys have had so much success that most of the talk is good about them. But it will be important to just put everything aside and stay the course, stay with the grind, stay late and put the time in. And especially early, keep your mouth shut. You're a rookie. It's kinda good if you go unheard from or unseen for a little while. Just put in your dues. You're going to take some bumps in the road, but it'll pass."

That includes members of the team being kicked out of their homes for over a month and moving to Arizona after Santa Clara County restrictions banned contact sports. Linebacker Fred Warner feels that this past season's adversity made him and his teammates stronger and believes the 49ers will bounce back better for it in 2021. Thank you Faithful for sticking with us all season. Not the season we wanted, but we'll come back better from it. I promise you'll get my all
