Marcus Lattimore says he should be ready to put on pads in 3 to 4 months

Apr 27, 2013 at 2:02 PM--




During an interview with NFL Network, new San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore from South Carolina said that his rehab is progressing well. He said that he is already doing sprints and that the doctors say that he should be ready to put on pads again in 3 to 4 months.

With the team already loaded at running back with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon, the 49ers have no need to rush Lattimore back onto the field. In fact, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said to NFL Network that the team may not even play Lattimore in 2013.

Lattimore is considered the best running back in the NFL Draft and would have gone a lot higher than the fourth round if not for his devastating injury that caused him to miss the last 4 games of the 2012 South Carolina football season.

Why Baldinger says the 49ers should avoid signing Tom Brady

By David Bonilla

After watching injury after injury devastate the San Francisco 49ers quarterback room this season, several fans on social media are willing to see what adding a veteran like Tom Brady might do to improve the team's outlook. If you don't count the four games he was suspended in 2016, Brady has started every game in all but one season since 2002. Meanwhile, Kyle Shanahan has started six different quarterbacks since becoming the 49ers' head coach in 2017. Unfortunately, he can't seem to keep his signal callers healthy. Of course, there is also a very vocal group of fans against a potential Brady signing. Their reasoning is sound. Brady will be 46 years old at the start of the 2023 season. In hindsight, the 49ers probably should have signed Brady in 2020, when they



Joe Montana thinks 49ers should start Jimmy Garoppolo in 2023

Jimmy Garoppolo's time with the San Francisco 49ers has likely come to an end. The veteran quarterback is slated to hit the free-agency market next month and will probably cash in on a lucrative deal, playing elsewhere in 2023. Brock Purdy, who completed an impressive rookie campaign but suffered a UCL tear in the NFC Championship Game and will likely miss about six months, would have been the frontrunner to start during the upcoming season. Now, it's looking like Trey Lance, the team's No. 3 overall draft pick in 2021, will have a leg up this offseason with Purdy sidelined. If it were up to one Hall of Fame quarterback, the 49ers would stick with Garoppolo. "Well, I start Jimmy," Joe Montana told Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle during the



Should the 49ers cut DT Javon Kinlaw?

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The offseason is officially upon us, as the San Francisco 49ers were eliminated by the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game to a score of 31-7 after losing quarterback Brock Purdy to injury on their first offensive drive. The 49ers have many personnel decisions to make, as 25 players are currently scheduled for free agency, but there are other tough situations to handle, such as the contract of former first-round pick Javon Kinlaw, who has not looked the same post-injury, especially during his second stint with the team this season at the end of the year. Kinlaw, however, has a fully-guaranteed cap hit of $4.928 million in 2022, which would force the 49ers to take in that amount in dead cap money if they choose to move on. So, should the

The San Francisco 49ers faced another disappointing ending to the season with a 31-7 loss in the NFC Championship Game to the Philadelphia Eagles, marking the second consecutive year that the 49ers have lost in that outcome. Now, they face 25 unrestricted free agents, while only having about $16 million in cap space, meaning they'll have to make several tough decisions, including potential restructures with current players. With that said, who are the top five free agents that the 49ers should bring back for 2023? HM: K Robbie Gould Robbie Gould has been consistent for the 49ers, although the level of play has dropped since his stellar years in 2017 and 2018. However, Gould's value comes in the postseason, where the
