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 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
