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.

49ers vs Cardinals: Five Keys to Victory and Score Prediction

By Matt Andruscavage
Sep 11, 2020

Week 1 of the 2020 season is upon us! It's been just over seven months since the San Francisco 49ers suffered a heart-breaking defeat in the Super Bowl to the Kansas City Chiefs. This offseason has been branded "The Revenge Tour" and after several moves, the 49ers are ready to take that first step towards their ultimate goal of a sixth Super Bowl championship. Up first are the Arizona Cardinals, who made plenty of moves of their own by drafting linebacker Isaiah Simmons and trading for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Kyler Murray enters into his second season and figures to lead the Cardinals to another improved season in the difficult NFC West. In both meetings last season, the Cardinals gave the Niners all they could handle, but Jimmy Garoppolo was able to lead

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

By Don Atkinson
Sep 11, 2020

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

By Matt Andruscavage
Sep 13, 2020

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
