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."

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo believes Deebo Samuel made leap as a leader 'sometime in training camp'

49ers receiver Deebo Samuel has made quite the stride in his third NFL season, as he's already caught 54 passes for 979 yards and seven total touchdowns through just nine games. Last year, Samuel had a mild sophomore season after an impressive rookie year due to a variety of hamstring injuries and a foot fracture, limiting the receiver to just seven games last season, in which he accumulated 33 receptions for 391 yards after a 57-catch, 802-yard rookie campaign. Deebo's rapport with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been made evident this year, best encapsulated by a specific play on Monday Night against the Rams in which the veteran quarterback trusted his receiver to make a play even before Samuel was

Last week, Hall of Famer Steve Young was a guest on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show. He spoke about talking (earlier that week) to Hall of Fame wide receiver, Jerry Rice, about what he [Rice] was thinking about the 49ers. This apparently took place the day after the San Francisco 49ers lost, in embarrassing fashion, to an Arizona Cardinals team that was missing many of their starters, including quarterback Kyle Murray. "I go, 'What do you think?'" Young said. "He goes, 'There's no dogs.' And I got to interpret that. There's no dogs on there. You watch the team go on, go off, everyone's like, 'OK.' Young went on to discuss how the 49ers' handling of the

Steve Young: 49ers find their dogs, Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

A week ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wondered if the San Francisco 49ers had any dogs on the team. A conversation with a former teammate and another Hall of Fame player, Jerry Rice, led Young to ponder the question. "There's no dogs," Rice told Young. Of course, that was coming off an embarrassing loss to an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. The quarterback turned ESPN analyst, like fans, saw a completely different squad on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a dominant performance that ended with a 31-10 upset win and Kyle Shanahan's fifth consecutive
