Rumph working with second team defense

May 10, 2006 at 7:22 AM--


Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers CB Mike Rumph has been working out with the second team in his bid to return to the cornerback position after a failed year at safety. "I understand the coaching staff, hasn't seen me at cornerback so I don't have the credibility with these guys," said Rumph. "I'm just going at it like I'm a rookie. I want to be here. Right now, I'm running with the 2's. I just want to get better."

Chris Cooper signed by Seahawks

Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Seattle Seahawks have signed free agent DL Chris Cooper (49ers) to a contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Lawson looking to make immediate impact

Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers DL Manny Lawson will likely line up as a rush end opposite the left tackle on passing downs. The team hopes Lawson can provide the them with a consistent pass rush, something they've been lacking for years. "You can do a lot with a guy that has that kind of speed coming of the edge," teammate DT Bryant Young said. "He'll be able to force plays, force fumbles, even if he doesn't get there. He can make the quarterback scramble and force him into other people. It's going to do a lot for everybody across the board."

Open competition for weakside spot

Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers LB Brandon Moore will battle LB Jeff Ulbrich for the starting weakside linebacker spot.

Smith playing the strongside

Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers LB Corey Smith has been working as the team's strongside linebacker, a spot formerly held by free-agent departure LB Andre Carter.
