Rumph fighting for a roster spot; Other KFFL 49ers notes

Jul 24, 2006 at 7:20 AM--


Dennis Georgatos, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Francisco 49ers CB Mike Rumph is fighting to retain his roster spot. He will compete with CB Sammy Davis and CB Derrick Johnson for a backup cornerback job and CB Walt Harris is ahead of all three.

In addition, the following is from Pro Football Weekly:

Don’t be shocked if Niners former first-round pick Mike Rumph doesn’t survive the team’s final cut. In addition to falling behind newcomer Walt Harris in the battle for one of the team’s starting CB roles, Rumph is a product of the pre-Mike Nolan regime, and we’re told the current organization has a real bias in favor of players it has drafted or signed.

Baas could push for playing time at right guard

Dennis Georgatos, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Francisco 49ers OG David Baas will push OG Justin Smiley for playing time at right guard.

Heitmann will enter camp as No. 1 center

Dennis Georgatos, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Francisco 49ers C Jeremy Newberry (knee) has been informed by head coach Mike Nolan that he will enter training camp as the No. 2 center because he can not practice on a full-time basis. OG Eric Heitmann will have the starting job. Newberry will get the opportunity to compete for the No. 1 role.

Newberry will be restricted to one workout per day

By Rohan Chakravarthi

San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel finally agreed to an extension with the organization, getting a three-year, $71.55 million deal worth up to $73.5 million with $58.1 million guaranteed. The new deal now keeps Samuel with the 49ers through 2025, as he still has another year remaining on his rookie deal. How does Samuel's deal rank against other receivers who earned extensions this offseason, especially the other fourth-year receivers who received deals as well? Fellow fourth-year receivers A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf, and Terry McLaurin all signed extensions



49ers' Kyle Shanahan explains how Trey Lance is different from other QBs he has coached

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan sat down with NFL Network's Steve Mariucci and Michael Yam ahead of Tuesday's practice. Mariucci, a former 49ers head coach, asked Shanahan about his new starting quarterback, Trey Lance. Shanahan has worked with several quarterbacks in the past—like pocket passer Matt Ryan in Atlanta and the dynamic Robert Griffin III in Washington. Mariucci asked Shanahan where Lance fits when comparing the 22-year-old passer to those different types of guys. "That's what I enjoyed watching him in college so much for because you were able to see both [skill sets]," Shanahan responded. "It was at a much lesser level, and it was only for a year of football, so you didn't have a ton to go off of, but you saw, the offense that they



Will the 49ers sign a veteran center? Will they move Deebo Samuel to tight end? And other mailbag questions answered

On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers began padded practices. The contract extension for Deebo Samuel was also announced. It's a fun time of the year, as the team prepares to make another run for a sixth Super Bowl championship. We opened up the 49ers mailbag and had plenty of questions to choose from. Let's respond to a handful: Diana Kayatani: There's talk about Jimmy possibly going to the Seahawks. If and when he leaves, where should he go? Felix Watkins: Where do you think Jimmy is going? The world awaits news on Jimmy Garoppolo. Will he be traded or released? Where will he go? Will he be a starter or a backup? How does he get his hair to look so nice? I wish we already had the answer to those questions. The good



49ers Notebook: Trey Lance assesses first two practices; Ryans praises Lance, Nick Bosa; Richard Sherman predicts 49ers DBs will be 'among the best'

Following the 49ers' practice session on Thursday, quarterback Trey Lance spoke publicly for the first time since June while defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans chatted with reporters about what he's seen so far from his side of the ball -- and from the quarterback his defense has been facing. Lance spoke on a number of topics, including what he thought of his first two days of training camp as the team's starter. Ryans offered his views of Lance, as well as what he's seen from some of the key players in the secondary and on the defensive line. Plus, there was an interesting Twitter quote Thursday from former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expects to see big things from his former defensive teammates this season. Here's a run-down of all of
