49ers to match Lee’s offer

Mar 8, 2007 at 7:02 AM--


From Maiocco's blog:
the 49ers are not going to let punter Andy Lee get away. The 49ers can thank the Steelers for doing the 49ers' work for them. The Steelers negotiated an unimpressive contract for Lee, who is a restricted free agent. As soon as the 49ers saw the offer sheet - six years, $7.1 million with $1.66 million to sign - they decided to match the deal to retain Lee. They will probably make it official as early as Thursday.

"Andy had a nice year for us. We like the development he had," 49ers vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan said. "We look forward to having that type of player around. We identified guys when we got here and we see him as one of our guys."

Lee is planning to get married this weekend, so he'll have some nice spending money for his honeymoon.

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays

As the excitement builds for the kickoff of the NFL regular season, we gain insight into media expectations via the final 2021 preseason power rankings for the San Francisco 49ers. For the avid NFL football fan, there is perhaps no act so trivial, yet so enjoyable, than participating in an NFL mock draft. I challenge you to identify an activity countless fans engage in for fun despite their realistic expectations of complete and utter failure. Similar is the process of preseason power rankings, which can be quite entertaining to review at the conclusion of the season -- provided you weren't the one doing the ranking. The glaring difference between the two is power rankings are written with the intention of being correct; but like mock drafts or final roster

For those who may have doubted, George Kittle has repeatedly said that his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Nick Bosa, is pretty good at football. Unfortunately, fans didn't see much of the defensive end in his second NFL season, as his sophomore campaign was cut short by an ACL injury. While injury after injury followed Bosa's, the loss of the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was greatly felt throughout the roster. San Francisco finished with just six wins after entering the season with Super Bowl aspirations. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and was asked which 49ers player he is most excited to see on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He answered before the question could be finished. "Bosa!" Baldinger quickly
