Mike Giddings: 49ers among young and exciting teams to watch

Jul 10, 2016 at 9:38 PM--


Mike Giddings, a long-time NFL personnel guru, named three up-and-coming teams on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he believes fans should keep a close eye on this season. One of those teams was the San Francisco 49ers. The other two were the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Giddings named the 49ers among the "young, exciting" teams that should be significant factors within their divisions. "Believe it or not, a team in the NFC West would be interesting to watch would be San Francisco," he says. "They had the two off years the last two years, but I think they could be another team that's in the mix."

Giddings has spent time as an NFL assistant coach, personnel man, and the head coach at University of Utah and within the short-lived World Football League in the 70s. Following his stint with Utah, he was an assistant with the 49ers from 1968 until 1973 and the Denver Broncos from 1976 until 1981.

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 2 matchup at home against the New York Jets. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game. NFL teams can each have 48 players active on game days. This season, each can promote one or two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players. After the game, any elevated player will revert back to the practice squad without having to go through waivers. Teams can do this twice with each player before subjecting him to waivers first. Among the inactives are tight end George Kittle and pass rusher Dee Ford, who were both ruled out for the game. Kittle is dealing with an MCL sprain and bone bruise,
