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.

Trent Williams calls 49ers his No. 1 destination but is curious about his free agency value

By David Bonilla

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent. He would like to return to the 49ers, and the team would certainly like

Aiyuk finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards with five touchdowns. He added six carries for 77 rushing yards and another two scores on the ground. The superb first year was enough to land Aiyuk on Pro Football Focus' 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team. "The 49ers struck again," wrote Ben Linsey. "Aiyuk is in the same mold as the George Kittles and the Deebo Samuelses added to San

In addition to potentially losing defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could find himself losing two trusted assistants on the offensive side too. Passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel are expected to draw interest from potential new head coaches around the league. This year, thanks to new league rules, Shanahan cannot block interviews with LaFleur and McDaniel, so long as they are up for promotions to coordinator jobs. Reports state Saleh may be interested in making LaFleur his offensive coordinator, should he land a head-coaching job. That much was
