Team close to signing rookie Haralson

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports the San Francisco 49ers are believed to be close to coming to terms with fifth-round draft pick LB Parys Haralson.

Competition developing at fullback

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers FB Chris Hetherington is attempting to hold off FB Moran Norris for the team's starting fullback spot.

Competition developing at right tackle

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers OTs Kwame Harris and Adam Snyder are competing for the team's starting right tackle spot.

Team to attend Brooks' workout and fly him to California

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers personnel director Scot McCloughan will be on hand when former Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks works out for scouts Thursday, June 22, in Charlottesville, Va. Brooks will be in the NFL Supplemental Draft July 13. Brooks will also fly to the Bay Area June 28 and have a physical with the 49ers the next day.

Hamilton may be back for training camp

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan said Friday, June 16, 49ers WR Derrick Hamilton (knee) will be on the field when training camp opens next month. Hamilton tore a ligament in his left knee last May, and then suffered a setback this winter. Nolan said Hamilton needs to be practicing to have a chance to make the team. Hamilton did not practice at the team's offseason workouts. "It sure didn't help him not to be practicing," Nolan said. "If he wants to get on the roster, he needs to play."

Newberry may be back for training camp

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan said Friday, June 16, 49ers OC Jeremy Newberry (knee) will be on the field when training camp opens next month. Newberry is recovering from microfracture surgery on his right knee. Earlier this year, Nolan said he didn't want Newberry sitting out training camp practices, as he did last summer, to avoid wear and tear on his knee. Friday, however, Nolan said he was willing to limit the center's participation the way he would any other veteran.

Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



Breer: Don't buy the pre-draft hype; 49ers keeping QB evaluations 'close to the vest'

Mac Jones to the San Francisco 49ers is a done deal, right? That's what every analyst and evaluator would have you believe. Much of that originated from NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, a close friend of head coach Kyle Shanahan, stating that he believes the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to draft Jones. Shanahan debunked that last week. Not the idea that Jones might be the pick, but that Simms might have some insight into the team's plans. "Trust me, Chris talks about everything," Shanahan said. "Therefore, I haven't been able to talk to him in a couple of years. Anyone who you're friends with who speaks in the media, and people think you're friends with them, that means you're not allowed to tell them anything. That's why he doesn't even ask me stuff. Because



Jason Verrett on re-signing with 49ers: 'My heart was always with San Fran'

By David Bonilla

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what



Jason Verrett, teammates trust Jimmy Garoppolo, but believe in 49ers front office

Unless you stay off of social media, as Jimmy Garoppolo does, it's tough to escape all of the speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback's future. Garoppolo remains the favorite to be the Week 1 starter. Beyond 2021, though, who knows? San Francisco recently traded away several valuable draft picks, including multiple first-rounders, to move up to the No. 3 spot for the opportunity to acquire a quarterback of the future. The team obviously sees a potential upgrade in at least one option between Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. However, Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for this season, allowing a rookie the luxury of sitting and learning behind a veteran. Cornerback Jason Verrett spoke with reporters today. While he plays on the
