Team gives Fleck a tryout

Rick Armstrong, of the Beacon News, reports free agent WR P.J. Fleck (49ers) had a tryout with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, June 20. "I had a half-hour meeting with (offensive coordinator) Ron Turner, and then I worked out for them," Fleck said Wednesday, June 21. "I still haven't heard anything. They said they'd let us know by the end of the week." Fleck does already have an offer to join the staff of San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan.

Team showing big interest in Brooks; but is he too costly?

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan attended the workout of Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks Thursday, June 22. As previously noted, the 49ers are also scheduled to fly Brooks to Santa Clara July 28. He'll have a physical the next day. The 49ers will have the right to select anywhere from No. 1 to No. 11 in the supplemental draft. The 32 teams are divided into three groupings. The first 11 teams (teams with six or fewer victories) will have a lottery to determine which teams choose in which positions, 1 thru 11. If the 49ers use their first pick on Brooks, they would forfeit their first-round selection in the 2007 NFL draft. Some NFL insiders do not expect Brooks to last until the second round of the supplemental draft because he's just so darned talented. The expectation is that a good team with veteran leadership will take a chance on Brooks with its first-round pick. The 49ers probably will not go after Brooks because of the exorbitant price in addition to the baggage he would bring to the team. They probably don't want to sacrifice their first pick for next year (probably another top-10 pick) on a player of questionable character.

Turner discusses TE situation

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner answered a question regarding the team's situation at tight end by responding: "We are going to use multiple personnel groups and one of the groups we use is two tight ends with a single back in the game and two wide receivers is something we've been working on a lot lately. There is a place for Vernon Davis and Eric Johnson to be on the field at the same time."

Contract update: P. Haralson

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports San Francisco 49ers rookie LB Parys Haralson, a fifth-round draft choice, signed a four-year, $1.786 million with the team. The deal included a $176,000 signing bonus and minimum salaries of $275,000 (2006), $360,000 (2007), $445,000 (2008) and $530,000 (2009).

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

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

By Gilbert Brink

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards

By Gilbert Brink

Odell Beckham Jr. is a toxic person. At one time, OBJ seemed to be on track to be an elite wide receiver who was carving out a Hall of Fame career with each spectacular grab he made. It is no longer that time. 2019 was littered with headlines related to Odell seeking employment elsewhere. As a New York Giant, Odell was disgruntled about his money. The Giants gave Odell a fat contract, only to have him show up on ESPN, accompanied by Lil Wayne, to
