Baalke: Brooks going nowhere, Johnson not released, Kaepernick not on the trading block

Mar 11, 2015 at 5:40 PM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke addressed the media today and gave some information on the current state of the team.

Baalke stated that defensive end Justin Smith has earned the right to announce his playing status on his own time.

He said that linebacker NaVorro Bowman is "real good" and starting to feel like himself as he comes back from the devastating ACL tear he suffered over a year ago. The team is real confident in Chris Borland and Michael Wilhoite filling in for Patrick Willis.

The team has had no contact with Greg Hardy and has no interest in signing the defensive end.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks will remain on the team this season. He will not be released as so many have expected the 49ers to do.

Oddly, Baalke stated that the team has not released wide receiver Stevie Johnson. However, Johnson indicated on Twitter that he had been let go by the 49ers.

When asked whether guard Mike Iupati had played with a fractured foot last season, he answered, "Not to my knowledge."

He said the the 49ers have not talked to any team about a possible trade of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Baalke and the staff had a great visit with running back Reggie Bush today. He said "Great guy, good conversation." He didn't state whether or not a deal was imminent.

Update on Johnson:

Cam Inman is reporting that the 49ers will indeed release Stevie Johnson but it is just not finalized. The paperwork is in process of being submitted.

"Adams confirmed to the Daily News on Thursday that the Jets GM has indeed conveyed his willingness to move the team's best player if the right deal presents itself after intense acrimony this offseason," wrote Mehta. Until now, all reports have stated that the Jets were unwilling to part with their All-Pro safety. While this may not seem 49ers-related just yet, I bring it up because earlier this month, an

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch sounded optimistic on Tuesday that a deal with the team's All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, would get done — eventually. "George is such a great fit for what we do," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's a tremendous player. I'm sitting here looking at the vision statement for what we want in a player, and George checks every box. He's tremendous. He's what we want to be. I think it would be silly not to figure that out, so we're going to do our best to do just that." The good news is that Kittle reported to the 49ers on Tuesday for his first COVID-19 test. Should that one and his second test on Friday return negative,
