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 will look for injury help inside and outside organization

With as many players as the 49ers currently have on the sidelines due to injuries, chances are the team will be scanning the free agent market in the days ahead to see who can be brought in to help. But while they will certainly be open to the possibility of adding new players to the roster, they also expect the players they currently have to step up. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan discussed the issue after Sunday's 31-13 win over the New York Jets, which saw the team lose quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (high ankle sprain), defensive linemen Nick Bosa (knee/possible ACL tear) and Solomon Thomas (knee), and running backs Tevin Coleman (knee) and Raheem Mostert (knee). Those injuries are in addition to a long list of previously-injured players that includes tight end

John Lynch believes 49ers have emerged from offseason with an opportunity to be better

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to step onto the Levi's Stadium football field and kick off their 2020 season, seven months after suffering a heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. General manager John Lynch believes his squad has emerged from the offseason as a better unit. Now, the 49ers just have to go out and show that today against the Arizona Cardinals, and then the rest of their opponents this season. "The great thing about that, Greg, is that this is a show-me league," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers pre-game show (via Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports). "So we gotta show up and prove that. I believe that potentially we've got an

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

By Matt Andruscavage

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw
