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.

Deebo Samuel is the NFL's leading receiver through four weeks of play. He has 490 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns on 28 receptions, which puts him on pace for over 2,000 yards through 17 games. Now, a lot has to happen between now and the end of the season for Samuel to come anywhere close to that milestone. While Calvin Johnson was 36 yards shy of that mark in 2012, no one has reached it. Samuel would have to maintain his current pace and stay healthy to come close, even with the benefit of a 17-game season. While the receiving record would be a significant challenge, NFL Media researcher Dante Koplowitz-Fleming shares



'My whole entire body was affected': 49ers pass rusher Dee Ford details dealing with chronic back issues

Some wondered if San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Dee Ford would ever play an NFL snap again. Ford never questioned that. He started dealing with a back injury after Week 1 last season and never returned to the field in 2020. Most felt that any contributions from Ford this season would be a bonus for the 49ers. Ford has played in all four games this season and racked up three sacks in the process. Two of those came this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. Once again, Ford is making an impact on the Niners defense. That's pretty good for a player who many felt might retire. Retirement, though, was never on Ford's mind. "For me, personally, [the injury] was tough," Ford said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "... I always
