Maiocco: 49ers had a tense ‘players-only’ meeting about four weeks ago

Oct 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM--


Yesterday, there was a report by Jay Glazer that described San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick as "alone on an island inside that locker room." Glazer went on to say that there are not a lot of people that he connects with to try to pick him back up.



Another report from Bay Area Sports Guy stated that, according to sources, there was a significant divide within the 49ers locker room that originated from the resulting tensions of a rumored love triangle between Kaepernick, former 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith, and Hot 97 host Nessa.

Today, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported about a tense players-only meeting with Kaepernick as the topic of discussion.

During the rough stretch about four weeks ago, there was a tense players-only meeting in which one teammate called out Kaepernick, sources told CSNBayArea.com. Another player quickly stepped up in a show of support and the exchange became heated. In the days that followed, the individuals involved got together and cleared up their differences, according to a source.

There were no names in the report, but several players like WR Anquan Boldin have stepped up to defend their quarterback.

The 49ers must put distractions aside and move forward in what may already be a lost season. At 2-5, they sit alone at the bottom of the NFC West standings. This week, the 49ers are preparing for a division game against the Rams in St. Louis.

Now that it's all over and the 49ers have decided on quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State as their selection with the third overall pick in the NFL Draft, how much of what was circulating about the pick throughout the past month over the NFL was actually true?

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel had no idea that Trey Lance of North Dakota State would be the pick at No. 3. None of the 49ers coaches did. That's how secretive head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were being with the selection. Lance didn't even know until minutes before hearing his name called by Commissioner Roger Goodell. That's what he told NFL Network's Melissa Stark onstage. The 49ers traded for the No. 3 overall pick on March 26, giving up, along with a future third-round pick, first-rounders in the next two drafts.
