Feb 13, 2006 at 6:41 AM--


According to Scout.com, the San Francisco 49ers may be interested in acquiring a tight end via free agency during the offseason. This could include Denver Broncos tight end Jeb Putzier should he become available in March.

Putzier, a 4 year veteran, was drafted out of Boise State in 2002 with the 191st pick overall. He is listed at 6'4" and 256 pounds. He has played in 39 games starting 10 of them. 9 of those starts came over the past 2 seasons. During those two seasons, he has 73 catches for 1053 yards and 2 touchdowns over 32 games overall.

The Scout.com article goes on to evaluate the top tight ends slated for free agency.

According to the Sporting News, WR Derrick Hamilton, who missed the entire 2005 season, had a minor setback a month ago when he went in for a cleanup procedure on the knee. Team doctors expect him to be ready for minicamp and organized team activities in June. The team has some hope Hamilton can compete for the team's No. 3 wide receiver spot in 2006.

Today, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler wrapped up his rankings of NFL players by position group. He capped off the series by ranking the league's top tight ends. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." The San Francisco 49ers made George Kittle a fifth-round draft pick out of Iowa in 2017, and he has emerged as arguably the league's

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

"The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple."

'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during
