49ers contact RB LenDale White

Apr 28, 2006 at 12:18 AM--


According to the SportsCenter NFL Draft Special on ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers have contacted former USC running back LenDale White and told him that they may be calling him. This is the first time that the 49ers have shown any interest in White.

LenDale White is a big running back at 6-0 and 237 lbs. In 2004, he had 1103 rushing yards and 17 total touchdowns. In 2005, he had 1302 yards with 26 total touchdowns and added 219 receiving yards. His biggest game of 2005 was against Arizona State where he rushed for 197 yards on 19 carries. Big numbers for a running back that shared time with potential #1 pick Reggie Bush.

LenDale White has been criticized for his offseason laziness and refusal to participate in the Combine or USC’s Pro Day on April 2 blaming a hamstring injury. He has said that his hamstring is not an issue and that he will be ready to go for training camp.

With the draft only one day away, this could be a smokescreen by the 49ers.

Taking a Risk on 49ers' Receiving Unit: Signing Another Veteran Wideout May Still Be the Right Play

When it comes to talking about the 49ers' group of wide receivers, the words of Yogi Berra seem to apply: "It's like deja vu all over again." Last year at about this time, the 49ers took a torpedo to their wide receiver plans when they lost both big-bodied rookie Jalen Hurd and the scrappy Trent Taylor to pre-season injuries. They had another rookie wideout, Deebo Samuel, who would later prove to be a gem for the team's offense, but at the time things were looking less than hopeful for the 49ers' chances of making significant strides toward a playoff appearance. In an effort to boost the receiver room last season, the 49ers brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos, and it had a magical effect on the other wideouts for the rest of the

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
