Three very vague tweets spark some confusion among 49ers fans

Sep 4, 2015 at 2:35 PM--


Three bizarre tweets today are sparking some confusion among some San Francisco 49ers fans. No one is really sure what sparked the tweets or why the authors posted them in the first place.

The first was from earlier today by ESPN's Jim Trotter and was posted about an hour after Darnell Dockett's release.


The second came later in the day and was by 49ers WR Torrey Smith.


The third was by former NFL scout and contributor to CSN Bay Area, John Middlekauff.


What does it mean? No one seems to know. How does Smith's comment fit into it -- if at all. Was Smith posting about something personal or team related? He followed his tweet with two more posts about interviewing for jobs out of college ... so ... maybe not. Are Trotter and Middlekauff referring to the team's crazy offseason or some developing story? Are the players upset about the recent release of a player? Is a surprise roster move in the works? Is there some negativity in the locker room? Are Jed York and Jim Harbaugh now best buds? What?!!!

There were some somewhat surprising cuts today, but nothing totally shocking or signaling self-destruction. That makes the tweets even more bizarre.

It may be nothing. Hopefully it is nothing. We shall see.

Update:


Whew. We do now. Um ... Torrey ... any idea what Trotter is talking about?

Nick Bosa hopes to see 49ers fans return to Levi's Stadium, has advice for Trey Lance

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes to see stadiums across the league filled with fans once again. Last season, there were no or limited fans in venues due to the pandemic. For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past. Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021. "It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV



La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via

The 49ers have a new offensive lineman -- Aaron Banks, who they selected in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft after trading down five spots to pick 48. Banks is a big-bodied (6-6, 330) lineman who is a product of the Bay Area (Alameda). 49ers fans will get to know more about him very soon, and perhaps he could even become a starter on the offensive line sooner rather than later. But for now, here are three things to keep in mind as he begins his NFL career. * He's well-decorated: While 49ers first-round pick Trey Lance was an unknown until blowing up in college at North Dakota State, Aaron Banks has followed a different trajectory. Banks was a high-end prospect at El Cerrito High School, ranking as a top 200 overall player by Scout.com,
