49ers working out Jared Goff, Cal WRs today

Mar 30, 2016 at 7:39 AM--


Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are spending today working out former Cal QB Jared Goff in Berkeley. They will also be taking a look at several Cal wide receivers today, who will likely be catching passes from Goff.


Yesterday, Alex Marvez of Fox Sports reported that Goff, who remains the popular choice among mock drafts for the 49ers' seventh overall selection, would be working out for both the San Francisco and Cleveland Browns this week.

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.

Why the 49ers need to quickly figure out their Brandon Aiyuk situation

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Oct 13

What the heck have the 49ers done with Brandon Aiyuk? That has been the primary question for this 2-3 San Francisco team since Week 1, when the promising receiver, who had an impressive rookie season, was out-snapped by free-agent addition Trent Sherfield 27-26. Drafted 25th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, Aiyuk burst into the spotlight last season, especially late in the year, catching 60 passes for 748 yards overall. In fact, in a six-game stretch from Weeks 7-15 (not including the two games he was on the COVID-19 list), the rookie averaged 94.7 receiving yards, catching 7.5 passes on 11.5 targets per game. The most important part: Aiyuk played on no lower than 76% of the offensive snaps during those weeks, which is a feat he's



Steve Young and Jerry Rice struggling to figure out 49ers' identity

Who are the 2021 San Francisco 49ers? Fans are still trying to figure out the team's identity. Maybe the Niners are still trying to figure that out themselves. We know head coach Kyle Shanahan would like the 49ers to own a punishing rushing attack. That hasn't happened. Some of that is due to injuries. The team lost starter Raheem Mostert for the season due to a knee injury suffered in Week 1. Jeff Wilson was lost before that but could return this season. JaMycal Hasty is just now returning from an injury of his own. That left a pair of rookies — Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon — to establish a rushing attack. However, even they have not been healthy. Right now, San Francisco is averaging 122 rushing yards per game, which is good enough to rank No. 12



49ers-Colts Injury Report: Trent Williams doubtful, Jimmy Garoppolo will start; Trey Lance, Maurice Hurst, Javon Kinlaw out

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tackle Trent Williams, quarterback Trey Lance, and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw have missed three consecutive practices. Williams suffered an ankle sprain during the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan repeated what he said on Thursday, that the veteran tackle tweaked the injury during Monday's practice. The final decision on Williams will go all the way up to game time, said the coach. For now, he has been ruled "doubtful." Rookie Jaylon Moore will start if



Kyle Shanahan: Expect less of 49ers rookie Trey Lance in the shotgun vs. Cardinals

By David Bonilla

NBC Sports Bay Area's Greg Papa says Trey Lance has only been under center four times this season. NFL stats reports eight snaps from under center, per our own Chris Wilson. Regardless, the number is low. Three of those snaps came on passing plays against the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. The rest of the time, the San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback has lined up in the shotgun, forcing opponents to defend him as a potential runner as well as a passing threat. Lance played most of his collegiate snaps from under center. It sounds like fans can expect him to do so again on Sunday against the division-leading Arizona Cardinals. "He'll be under center more now that he'll be playing the whole
