Dilfer recovering well

Roger Phillips, of Insidbayarea.com, reports San Francisco 49ers personnel chief Scot McCloughan said backup QB Trent Dilfer (knee) passed a physical shortly after the 49ers acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Browns three weeks ago. Dilfer, coming off knee surgery, was a limited participant Tuesday, May 30, and appears well on his way to a complete recovery. The team has until June 15 to back out of the trade.

Team expects a quiet June 1

Roger Phillips, of Insidbayarea.com, reports San Francisco 49ers personnel chief Scot McCloughan said he expects the current market to be sparse when it comes to June 1 cuts. "We're going to pay attention to it, big-time," he said. "But I expect it to be the weakest it's been in 10 years."

Jennings returns to practice

Roger Phillips, of Insidbayarea.com, reports San Francisco 49ers OL Jonas Jennings (shoulder) practiced Tuesday, May 30, for the first time since undergoing season-ending surgery to repair his torn right labrum, injured in the third game in 2005. "As of right now, I feel great," Jennings said following practice. "It's not even something I think about anymore."

Newberry confident for 2006

Roger Phillips, of Insidbayarea.com, reports San Francisco 49ers OL Jeremy Newberry (knee) did not practice with the team Tuesday, May 30, when they started 12 days of organized team activities. Newberry is recovering after December microfracture surgery on his chronically ailing right knee. He sounded optimistic about returning for the 2006 season. "There's no doubt in my mind I'm going to play this year, and I'm playing 16 games," said Newberry, who was encouraged by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam taken three weeks ago. In a bid to preserve his knee, Newberry hardly practiced the past two years. Head coach Mike Nolan would like that to change this season. "It'll be important that we all practice together because continuity is really important to be good," Nolan said. As a result of Newberry's cloudy status, the 49ers may try to work a deal with his agent, Doug Hendrickson, to insert some playing-time incentives into the contract. He is due to make $3.5 million in 2006.

Richard Sherman explains why drafting Justin Fields makes sense for the 49ers

Mac Jones versus Justin Fields or Trey Lance. That is the big debate when it comes to the San Francisco 49ers and the 2021 NFL Draft. While the latter two names are more likely to excite the fanbase, there is a lot of speculation that the former might be the pick at No. 3 overall. One former 49ers defender, cornerback Richard Sherman, doesn't assume it will be Jones, though. He actually sees Fields as the perfect fit for San Francisco, assuming Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are taken with the first two selections. Cornerback Tre'Davious White, the most recent guest on the Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which Sherman co-hosts, also believes the 49ers will select Fields. It isn't easy to fathom that San Francisco surrendered multiple first-round picks and a

Much has been made of Mac Jones' DUI in 2017. Some would say that not enough has been made of it while evaluating the former Alabama quarterback's character. However, a recent feature from NFL.com sheds some light on the incident and how it altered Jones' path. At the time, Jones was a redshirt freshman and the third quarterback on the depth chart. In the very early hours of November 3, 2017, Jones was involved in a car accident, underwent a sobriety test, and was then arrested for driving under the influence. He was also charged with improper ID by a minor. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident. "We are disappointed in
