Pro Football Weekly reports the following:

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."

Nick Bosa: 49ers not too shaken up about loss to Cardinals, will 'come back strong'

The San Francisco 49ers weren't about making excuses following their 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. There could have been plenty — being rusty from no preseason, injuries, the lack of a normal offseason. All NFL teams across the league had to deal with at least two of those, though. The situation wasn't unique to the 49ers. You'll probably hear a lot more this week about the potential for a Super Bowl hangover. 49ers players aren't using that as an excuse either. While the goal is to get back to and win the big game this season, players have continually said they are taking things one week at a time and remain focused on each opponent ahead of them. "I mean, I hope we're not thinking about last year. We just played a

The San Francisco 49ers entered the offseason motivated by February's Super Bowl defeat. Maybe that wasn't enough because the team gained some extra motivation the hard way on Sunday after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset 24-20 win at Levi's Stadium. The loss forces San Francisco to play catchup with the rest of the division. It is the only NFC West squad that suffered a defeat during Week 1. The 49ers are back to work this week and beginning preparations for their two-game road trip to the East Coast, where they will face the New York Jets and New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in back-to-back weekends. The team's focus remains on the opponent

The San Francisco 49ers could see a healthy dose of Frank Gore on Sunday when they travel to MetLife Stadium to play the New York Jets. The running back remains the 49ers' all-time rushing leader. He started his career with the team, played 10 seasons with San Francisco, and remains a fan favorite. Gore even has admirers on the current 49ers roster. Running back Raheem Mostert once asked former Niners tackle Joe Staley about Gore. Staley and Gore played eight seasons together. "I asked him, 'What does it take for a guy like me to be like Frank Gore?'" Mostert shared this past offseason. "Because Frank Gore is my idol. I love watching him play, and I know that Joe was blocking
