Local free agents continue to wait outside 49ers headquarters for an opportunity

Sep 27, 2016 at 4:03 PM


Yesterday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reported about two local free agents that were waiting outside of the San Francisco 49ers' headquarters, waiting for an opportunity at a tryout. The first is Najee Lovett of Richmond who is a wide receiver. The second is East Bay native Tracy Clark who is a defensive back. Both were there again today and continue to wait and hope.


The 49ers have lost two straight. No San Francisco wide receiver had more than three catches in either of those losses. The defense has given up 644 passing yards in the past two games and cornerback Jimmie Ward is week-to-week with a quad injury. He is very likely to miss Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Wide receiver Torrey Smith seemed to aggravate his ankle, but it did not seem serious. Some help in those areas may be needed.

The 49ers signed WR/KR Keshawn Martin today – and Lovett and Clark continue to wait. "We talked to Kap and he said he'd put in a word for us," said Lovett. "We're just trying to get anyone's attention, to get 20 minutes to show what we can do."



Lovett played college football at the University of Idaho while Clark played at Washington State. Both attended the 49ers' local pro-day last year.


Lovett wants to make sure the 49ers know he is still waiting. "I can Ball," said Lovett via Twitter. "I can help out at Wr and the return game."

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa. However, that last one didn't get finalized until dangerously close to the start of the regular season. This year, the team has been trying to get a deal done with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference. The fumble by running back Christian McCaffrey during the opening drive is the one play that sticks out in the tight end's mind. "I think if we could [avoid] that turnover, I think that's a difference," Kittle stated. It's worth noting that Kittle had an opportunity to recover the fumble, which would have kept the football in the 49ers'
