Tom Gamble promoted to assistant general manager for 49ers

Jul 25, 2016 at 12:13 PM--


Tom Gamble, who has held a role as a senior personnel executive with the San Francisco 49ers, was promoted to assistant general manager the team announced on Monday.


Gamble returned to the organization in January of 2015 after two years with the Philadelphia Eagles as their vice president of personnel. "Tom is one of the most experienced, knowledgeable and respected personnel men in the business," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said via a statement following the hiring. "He played an instrumental role in our personnel department from 2005-2012 and is well versed in our system, having played a role in its development. This familiarity, along with his many strengths, will be tremendous assets as we prepare for free agency and the draft. It is great to have Tom back with the 49ers."

Gamble worked with head coach Chip Kelly for two years in Philadelphia and was reportedly a strong influence in bringing Kelly to San Francisco following the firing of Jim Tomsula in January. "That's something that helped us know who Chip is as a person, know what he's going to bring to the table every single day, and all those things combined put him far ahead–the best candidate for us," said team CEO Jed York in January.

"Tom's always been somebody that we've leaned on here, somebody that Chip did in Philadelphia for a few years and somebody that Trent has here," York continued.

Prior to his time in Philadelphia, Gamble spent eight seasons with the 49ers within their personnel department. He ended that stint as the team's director of player personnel from 2011 through 2012.

49ers.com said the following of Gamble:

During his time in the NFL, Gamble has helped build 12 playoff teams – two with San Francisco, five with Indianapolis and five with Philadelphia. Prior to his arrival in San Francisco, Gamble served as a college scout for the Colts from 1998 through the 2005 draft, under veteran NFL executive Bill Polian.

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 3 matchup at home against the New York Giants. 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 having to sign them to the active roster, as was the case with center Hroniss Grasu this week. The 49ers on Saturday promoted running back JaMycal Hasty and linebacker Joe Walker from the practice

49ers vs Jets: Five Keys to Victory and Score Prediction

After last week's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers are looking to rebound and chalk up that first win of the season. It has been a difficult week as the team dealt with the loss, but also in the health department as the injury bug has reared its ugly head early and often. The offense was hampered by the losses of Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and Richie James Jr. at receiver, Ben Garland and Weston Richburg at center, and perhaps most importantly, George Kittle at tight end. Kittle, Samuel, Richburg and James will not play on Sunday, but there was some good news as Aiyuk and Garland are set to make their season debuts. Free agent receiver Mohamed Sanu was signed this week to shore up the receiver corps. While the loss of Kittle is never good,

Who will step up for the 49ers in Week 2?

With multiple starters out tomorrow versus the Jets, there's no surprise that the 49ers' depth will be tested. Here are 3 players who will step up to propel the 49ers to their first win of the season. 1. Ross Dwelley Ross Dwelley did well filling in for George Kittle when the latter missed a few games in 2019, including 2 touchdowns against the Cardinals. Jordan Reed will undoubtedly be more involved, but I'd expect Ross Dwelley to be more engaged in both the run and pass game. Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman should be featured all game long, setting up easy play action passes to Dwelley. Prediction: 4 catches for 45 yards, 1 TD 2. Emmanuel Moseley Expect Emmanuel Moseley to rebound from Week 1's
