Mike Iupati plans to sign with Arizona Cardinals

Mar 9, 2015 at 3:46 PM--


According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, San Francisco 49ers free agent guard Mike Iupati has told people that he plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals.

That will make for some interesting NFC West battles between the 49ers and Cardinals. Last week, the 49ers signed former Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett.

Iupati was drafted by the 49ers out of Idaho in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl three times and was a first-team All Pro in 2012.

Iupati is one of numerous 49ers free agents that are expected to sign elsewhere once the new league year and free agency begin on Tuesday at 1 PM Pacific. Running back Frank Gore is expected to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles and the many do not expect wide receiver Michael Crabtree or cornerback Chris Culliver to return to the 49ers.

Did uncalled holding penalties help the San Francisco 49ers en route to their big offensive performance against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday? Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer seems to think so. Zimmer told reporters after his team's 34-26 loss to the 49ers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday that the 49ers were holding with frequency throughout the game and that officials weren't consistent in calling penalties. Zimmer made the comments after being asked about runs made by 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who had six carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns during the game. "I think we misaligned on that one (run). The other ones were -- these guys hold all the time, so they're grabbing us around the waist, grabbing our backs," Zimmer said. "The
