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).

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo believes Deebo Samuel made leap as a leader 'sometime in training camp'

By Rohan Chakravarthi

49ers receiver Deebo Samuel has made quite the stride in his third NFL season, as he's already caught 54 passes for 979 yards and seven total touchdowns through just nine games. Last year, Samuel had a mild sophomore season after an impressive rookie year due to a variety of hamstring injuries and a foot fracture, limiting the receiver to just seven games last season, in which he accumulated 33 receptions for 391 yards after a 57-catch, 802-yard rookie campaign. Deebo's rapport with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been made evident this year, best encapsulated by a specific play on Monday Night against the Rams in which the veteran quarterback trusted his receiver to make a play even before Samuel was

Last week, Hall of Famer Steve Young was a guest on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show. He spoke about talking (earlier that week) to Hall of Fame wide receiver, Jerry Rice, about what he [Rice] was thinking about the 49ers. This apparently took place the day after the San Francisco 49ers lost, in embarrassing fashion, to an Arizona Cardinals team that was missing many of their starters, including quarterback Kyle Murray. "I go, 'What do you think?'" Young said. "He goes, 'There's no dogs.' And I got to interpret that. There's no dogs on there. You watch the team go on, go off, everyone's like, 'OK.' Young went on to discuss how the 49ers' handling of the

Steve Young: 49ers find their dogs, Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

By David Bonilla

A week ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wondered if the San Francisco 49ers had any dogs on the team. A conversation with a former teammate and another Hall of Fame player, Jerry Rice, led Young to ponder the question. "There's no dogs," Rice told Young. Of course, that was coming off an embarrassing loss to an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. The quarterback turned ESPN analyst, like fans, saw a completely different squad on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a dominant performance that ended with a 31-10 upset win and Kyle Shanahan's fifth consecutive
