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.

Bad news on the injury front keeps coming for the San Francisco 49ers, who on Friday announced they'd be without tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this Sunday due to a knee injury. Kittle has been battling through the injury in recent days after sustaining it during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

"We never really do that with George because of what he's shown us over these three years with him," Shanahan said during his Friday press conference. "We would have held out two more days to wait and

There was some talk after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset victory over the defending NFC champions at Levi's Stadium that the San Francisco 49ers may have been rusty. There's no doubt that the team was banged up entering the contest. It entered the game without two receivers who figure to be key contributors this season and its starting and backup centers out of the lineup. Then the 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, suffered an injury midway through the contest. Although, he kept playing because ... well, he's George Kittle. But did the lack of a preseason impact the 49ers' performance during Week 1? Maybe. But it's probably not the only thing that affected the team on Sunday. It is worth noting that every NFL team was on equal footing when it

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to step onto the Levi's Stadium football field and kick off their 2020 season, seven months after suffering a heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. General manager John Lynch believes his squad has emerged from the offseason as a better unit. Now, the 49ers just have to go out and show that today against the Arizona Cardinals, and then the rest of their opponents this season. "The great thing about that, Greg, is that this is a show-me league," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers pre-game show (via Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports). "So we gotta show up and prove that. I believe that potentially we've got an
