MSU QB Connor Cook will have private workout for 49ers

Mar 16, 2016 at 5:04 PM--


Earlier today, it was reported that the San Francisco 49ers were among the teams that met with Michigan State QB Connor Cook at the Spartans' pro day. 49ers regional scout Steve Rubio and outside linebackers coach Jason Tarver were scheduled to represent team at the pro day today while much of the remainder of San Francisco's staff, including head coach Chip Kelly, was in attendance at San Jose State's pro day.

Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that, according to Cook himself, the 49ers, along with the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins, will have private workouts with the former Spartan quarterback.

"Cook told reporters he will have private workouts in East Lansing with the 49ers, Cowboys and Dolphins," confirms Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.


While Kelly stated today that he has been communicating with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a trade is still a possibility. Regardless of how that plays out, San Francisco may still be in the market for a quarterback of the future.

The 6-foot-4 Cook completed 57.5 percent of his passes for 9,194 yards, 71 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions over his college career for the Spartans. He is the 2015 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner, was First-team All-Big Ten and Big Ten QB of The Year last year, and came in ninth place in Heisman Trophy voting.


Cook has won the Big Ten Championship twice (2013, 2015), earning the MVP award in each of those games, and led his team to a 2014 Rose Bowl championship, where he was also the MVP, and a 2015 Cotton Bowl championship.

Tough task: 49ers can't let Packers WR Davante Adams have another big game

By David Bonilla
Jan 21

Davante Adams, the two-time first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. He's been one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' most reliable weapons this season and will be someone the San Francisco 49ers defense has to slow down during Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Adams has been a handful for the 49ers in recent years. The receiver has hauled in 48 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns in five meetings with the Niners since 2018, including the 2019 season's nine-reception, 138-yard performance in the NFC Championship Game. That's an average of nearly 124 yards per game. He's been dominant. "I just think of how balanced he is and how his lower half is with his feet," head coach Kyle Shanahan said



Fred Warner explains why the 49ers have unwavering trust in Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo has had to block out a lot of outside noise. You have to imagine that can be tough at times. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is often criticized by the media and a vocal portion of the fanbase. Garoppolo spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and said he refuses to get lost in the noise. He knows no good will come from listening to it. Instead, he stays focused on the task ahead. Last week, it was upsetting the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. This week, it is beating the Los Angeles Rams for the third time this season and advancing to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "I think it's just about knowing yourself as a player, as a person," Garoppolo said. "And as long as these guys in this locker room have faith in me and



No, 49er fans, Joe Staley doesn't have tickets to sell you

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers Saturday night, in the snow, at frigid Lambeau Field to punch their ticket to the NFC Championship game. After the victory the team knew they would be facing either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Los Angeles Rams, depending on the result of their Divisional Round matchup Sunday afternoon. The Rams jumped out to an early and decisive lead against the Bucs, and not long after, tweets began appearing about Ticketmaster limiting ticket sales to individuals with Los Angeles-area addresses only. This information got 49ers Twitter in an uproar, and then later, more tweets appeared from Rams fans, and even Rams' left tackle Andrew Whitworth's wife, imploring Rams season ticket holders not to sell their tickets to 49er



49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
