49ers interested in Broncos RB C.J. Anderson

Mar 9, 2016 at 1:22 PM--


Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that, after a brief flirtation with RB Doug Martin, who has re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the San Francisco 49ers are among the teams interested in Denver Broncos restricted free agent RB C.J. Anderson.

Barrows states the following...

"Denver made a surprise move this week when they placed the lowest-level tender on Anderson. That means they have the right to match any offer he gets, but will receive no draft-pick compensation should he sign elsewhere.

"It may end up that any other team that signs Anderson to an offer sheet is merely doing the Broncos' work for them. But at age 25, he is worth checking out. While splitting carries with Ronnie Hillman for most of the season, Anderson finished 2015 with 720 rushing yards (4.74-yard avg.) and five touchdowns. He started Super Bowl 50 and rushed for the team's only offensive touchdown. He was born in Richmond, went to high school in Vallejo and played at Cal."

There are also some questions regarding the durability of Hyde, who missed nine games last season with a broken foot. Hyde appears to be recovering well and is on track to take part in the team's offseason activities. It's also interesting to note that the 49ers have drafted a running back every year since 2009.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

49ers look to build on momentum against the Jaguars

The San Francisco 49ers are now a couple of days removed from the beat down they put on the divisional-rival Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers are now tied with the Pittsburg Steelers for most wins on Monday Night Football after destroying the Rams 31-10 at Levi's Stadium. Emotions are high for fans and players alike, as the team finally came away with a much-needed win. For the majority of the season, the 49ers were taking a lot of heat from fans and media for their mediocre performance, lack of identity, poor execution, and the mishandling of personnel. However, after the win on Monday night, a lot of that noise has since ceased, even though those criticisms were valid and perhaps still relevant. This was just one win. Granted, it was a massive win, one that

The San Francisco 49ers head back on the road following consecutive home games. They will travel to Jacksonville for a Week 11 matchup against the Jaguars. The 49ers own a 3-2 record over the Jaguars and have won the past three meetings between the two teams. San Francisco plays in Jacksonville for the first time since 2005, as the two teams squared off in London for Jacksonville's home game in 2013. The 49ers defeated the Jaguars 42-10 in that overseas matchup. The 49ers are coming off a 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football, marking the team's fifth-consecutive win against the Rams. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel hauled in five receptions for 97 yards and one touchdown, adding five carries for 36 yards and one rushing touchdown. It marked the first



Jimmie Ward shares details of 49ers meeting that led to defensive turnaround

It looked like a different San Francisco 49ers defensive on the field Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams, especially compared to the embarrassing performance displayed a week earlier against the Arizona Cardinals. The Niners defense held the potent Rams offense to just 10 points in the primetime shellacking. Following the home loss to an injury-plagued Cardinals squad and before the latest game, the defensive captains, which includes Ward, got together to figure out how to turn things around. At 3-5, something needed to change for the 49ers' playoff hopes to remain alive. "We ended up having a meeting with the team captains on defense," safety Jimmie Ward explained on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "I can't really speak too much on the offense.
