Team could keep four quarterbacks on the roster

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan said the team could decide to keep four quarterbacks on the roster if QB Cody Pickett helps in a number of different areas. QB Jesse Palmer would be the No. 4 quarterback.

V. Davis and E. Johnson expected on the field together this season

Matt Maiocco also reports that San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis is expected to be on the field with TE Eric Johnson a lot during the 2006 season.

Pickett working as No. 2 quarterback

Matt Maiocco also reports that San Francisco 49ers QB Cody Pickett is working as the No. 2 quarterback during OTAs until QB Trent Dilfer (knee) is able to participate in practice.

Pickett could see action at wide receiver

Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan mentioned that QB Cody Pickett may also work some eventually at wide receiver once backup QB Trent Dilfer's (knee) knee reaches 100 percent.

Gore out of team drills until training camp

Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (shoulders) will remain out of team drills until training camp. He is recovering from surgery on both shoulders.

Barlow still limited

Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers RB Kevan Barlow (knee) is working more in the OTAs than minicamp although he's still being held out some by design. "It feels good and I was excited to be out there with my teammates," said Barlow. "I want to help us try to win and get that camaraderie going. We've got a new offense and so I'm trying to learn that with everyone and things are coming along."

E. Johnson practicing

Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers TE Eric Johnson (foot) has been cleared to practice in team drills and he's doing well. Johnson has impressed head coach Mike Nolan already by delivering on his season-ending promise. "He's done what he said so far and that's important," said Nolan. "He came in after the last game as we were closing shop and spoke with all of the people he thought were important to let us know what his commitment was going to be in the offseason. I believe he's been about 100% for his participation in the offseason program."

Team conducts high-spirited practice

Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports the San Francisco 49ers twelve days of OTAs continued Wednesday, May 31, with a mid-morning practice, and as well as offering his usual instructional tips, head coach Mike Nolan also had to break up a few heated exchanges. The short-lived skirmishes occurred between OL Ben Sobieski and DL Marques Douglas and rookie TE Vernon Davis and LB Brandon Moore, signs Nolan said of a competitive team. "It was a good spirited practice today," said Nolan. "There was a lot of passion and spirit from the guys and they got in each other's face a little bit. When guys are competing, that's what happens. It's part of the process when you are competing and trying to get better. There is a sense of urgency among our team."

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

DUI described as a 'transitional event' for Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick

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



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting
