Report: 49ers big on Jared Goff, who is working out for them this week

Mar 29, 2016 at 2:14 PM--


Alex Marvez of Fox Sports is reporting that Cal QB Jared Goff is working out for both the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns this week.


Benjamin Allbright of AM1340 in Denver added that the 49ers front office is big on Goff, who the team might be able to select with the seventh overall pick if the Browns do not grab him with the second selection in next month's NFL Draft.


An overwhelming majority of online mock drafts have the 49ers selecting the former Cal Bear with the seventh overall selection. A number of team representatives, including head coach Chip Kelly, attended Goff's pro day on March 18. Of course, the event was a short drive from the 49ers' headquarters in Santa Clara. The Cleveland Browns, including their own head coach Hue Jackson, also had a big presence at the event.


49ers personnel were seen talking to Goff prior to his passing session that day. Kelly was not one of the individuals that spoke to Goff at length. In fact, according to Goff himself, Kelly just spoke to him in passing by simply saying "Hi" to him.

The members of the coaching staff in attendance to watch Goff that day included Kelly, quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, receivers coach Bob Bicknell, running backs coach Tom Rathman, and assistant offensive line coach Eric Wolford.

Goff's hands measured in at 9 1/8 inches at the pro day, which was 1/8 of an inch longer than the much-criticized measurement that came in at the NFL Scouting Combine. Following the pro day, he even joked about the measurement saying, "They got a new measuring tape made for small-handed people."

How did he do during his pro day? Goff finished 61 of 69 with two drops and capped the session with a 40-yard pass completion. Following the session, Goff even threw some wet footballs after Browns quarterback coach Pep Hamilton dowsed some with water.



Colin Kaepernick remains on the 49ers' roster and a report yesterday by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network stated that would remain the case unless the team is "blown away" by an offer for the quarterback. Kaepernick is still recovering from multiple surgeries and his representatives requested permission to seek a trade for their client during the week of the NFL Scouting Combine in February. Since then, multiple teams were linked as possible trade partners, including the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns, and New York Jets. Right now, only the Denver Broncos seem like a viable option if a deal were to take place – which is seeming less and less likely.

If Kaepernick is officially on the roster at 1 PM Pacific on March 31, then he will be on the roster on April 1 when he is due his $11.9 million base salary.

Other quarterbacks on the roster include Blaine Gabbert, Dylan Thompson, and Thad Lewis.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Today's biggest injury-related news is the return of tight end George Kittle to practice. He had missed the past five practices, including two this week, after suffering a groin strain on September 5. Kittle missed the 49ers' Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears. While he is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday, his return to practice bodes well for his chances of a return. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said there is more optimism regarding Kittle's chances of playing compared to last week. The team will

Arik Armstead provides details of foot injury that kept him out of 49ers-Broncos

Everyone was under the assumption that San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead suffered his foot injury during Week 2's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan gave that impression last week when asked about the injury. He was asked if Armstead suffered the injury against the Seahawks. "Yeah, it was bothering him," the coach responded. It turns out the injury started before the start of the regular season. Armstead told NBC Sports Bay Area that he is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. It began before Week 1's contest against the Chicago Bears and got worse against
