Interesting notes from Nolan’s Tuesday press conference

Nov 6, 2006 at 5:17 PM--


There were a few interesting things to note from Mike Nolan's Tuesday press conference.

The first was the fact that linebacker Brandon Moore would remain in his starting role on the team. This was obviously going to happen considering the great game that he had against the Vikings.

When Vernon Davis returns from his injury, he will be the likely starter for the 49ers. While Eric Johnson has performed well in Davis' absence, Nolan describes Davis as the more "complete" tight end. He may not be better now during his rookie year, but Nolan feels confident that Davis has the most potential.

A possible return to the throwback jerseys

Nolan also mentioned that he would like to see the team's 80's throwback jerseys come back, opening up the possibility for the team to return to those uniforms. He mentioned that the players like them as well. While it is not his decision to make nor would it be possible to switch to those uniforms for the 2007 season, it may be possible to do it after the 2007 season. Nolan also mentioned that there has already been some discussion about returning to the throwback uniforms. The reason that they can't switch back this season is due to league notification rules. Nolan also mentioned that he would like to "tweak" the uniforms a bit should they return to them.

Rapoport: 49ers send clear message to teams inquiring about Brandon Aiyuk

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than a week away, it's common for the rumor mill to start churning, especially with players who are actively seeking a new contract. It was just two short years ago that WR Deebo Samuel requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers prior to draft day, only for cooler heads to prevail and eventually agree to a new deal. Now, it's WR Brandon Aiyuk's turn to try and get paid and rumors surfaced over the weekend that he too would request to be dealt. While that report was quickly shot down by his agent, there's still a lot of discussion about Aiyuk's future and if other teams will come calling on draft night.
