Parrish may practice next week

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers S Tony Parrish (leg) could return to practice as early as next week after breaking his leg last season. "He looked good running up and down the sideline," said head coach Mike Nolan. "It's a possibility. We'll certainly be talking about it next week."

Hill signing could push Pickett to a new position

Kevin Lynch, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports the signing of QB Shaun Hill by the San Francisco 49ers may force 49ers' QB Cody Pickett to a different position. Last year, he dabbled as a coverage man on punts and kickoffs and did well as a receiver on the scout team in practice. Coaches have discussed moving Pickett to receiver. "I want to be here," Pickett said. "If they want me to play receiver, I'll do it." So far in the OTAs, Pickett mainly has played quarterback. But when training camp begins, he might be splitting time between receiver and quarterback.

Torrey not at practice yet

Roger Phillips, of the Oakland Tribune, reports newly added San Francisco 49ers LB Andre Torrey was not at practice Monday, June 5.

Adams and Williams to compete for a starting spot

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan said he expects S Mike Adams and S Chad Williams to compete for a starting safety spot, once injured S Tony Parrish returns. "Chad Williams is a good addition," said Nolan. "Without a question in my mind, he fits in to the picture with us defensively, not only because of his safety ability because of his third down ability. He's been a very effective player the last few years in the NFL. He's doing a good job."

Battle expected back Tuesday

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers WR Arnaz Battle (knee) is expected to return to practice Tuesday, June 6, according to head coach Mike Nolan. Battle missed practice Monday, June 5, due to swelling in his knee. "I had another MRI done and there are no problems structurally or anything," said Battle. "My knee is still stable but I had some swelling in there because of the workload. It's frustrating not to be out there taking reps but I don't expect it to be a lingering problem."

The 49ers Must Pursue Deshaun Watson

By Brian Renick
Jan 10, 2021

The smoke that began rising on Twitter earlier this week about Deshaun Watson being unhappy in Houston has consistently gotten thicker as the week has progressed. Typically, where there's smoke, there's fire. The 49ers absolutely must pursue all avenues available to them to bring Watson to Santa Clara. He would instantly transform this 49ers squad into a perennial Super Bowl contender. Watson finished the 2020 season as the second-highest rated passer in the league behind likely MVP Aaron Rodgers. He accomplished this on a team that was relatively bereft of talent on the offensive side of the ball, and was mired in a terrible coaching situation (Bill O'Brien was fired after four straight losses to start the season). Despite the dysfunction, Watson still led the

Saleh, Jets Could Thwart 49ers' Plans to Re-Sign Secondary

By Levin T. Black
Jan 16, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers don't have a secondary at this time. That's not an exaggeration. As of right now, the only player from the secondary to play significant minutes who is not a pending free agent is free safety Jimmie Ward. Here's a list of the players from the secondary who played at least 100 snaps in 2020 but would have to get new contracts if they were to play for the 49ers again: Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, Emmanuel Moseley, Akhello Witherspoon, Marcell Harris, Dontae Johnson, Jamar Taylor. Only one of these is not an unrestricted free agent. Moseley is an exclusive restricted free agent, meaning the 49ers will be able to re-sign him if they choose to. As long as the 49ers offer him a league minimum contract, Moseley is

How Much is Too Much for the 49ers to Acquire Deshaun Watson From the Texans?

By Levin T. Black
Jan 17, 2021

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson isn't happy. This has been known for a while at this point with reports of Watson not returning calls and being upset over the team's hiring process for both the general manager and the head coach. Watson was told he would get to have input but it's been reported that Watson either never got the chance or the input he gave was completely ignored by the Texans. The possibility that Watson could force his way out went from possible to a near lock on Sunday. ESPN's Adam Schefter dropped a bomb that will likely dominate sports talk all off-season. It came via a
