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."

Kyle Shanahan pitches 49ers to free agents who might be concerned by 2020 relocation

The San Francisco 49ers spent the last month of the 2020 season in Glendale, Arizona. The team was displaced from its home due to Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banning contact sports. Kyle Shanahan and company tried to make it business as usual, even though the situation was about as unusual as it could get. Even stranger was the fact that, at the time of the move, Maricopa County in Arizona was worse off when it came to COVID-19 than Santa Clara County. So, for the 49ers, their month-long home wasn't going to be any safer. On Monday, Shanahan and general manager John Lynch sat down and spoke at length with reporters — via Zoom, of course. It had been less than 24 hours since the team arrived back in the Bay Area after completing the 2020 season

49ers CB Jason Verrett praises organization's role in his comeback, says it could impact his free agency decision

If cornerback Jason Verrett decides to stay with the 49ers past the 2020 season, perhaps the team's training staff may deserve some credit for an assist. Verrett is one of the most intriguing cases among the long list of impending free agents on whom the 49ers must come to a decision before the start of the 2021 league year on March 18. Verrett has a long and difficult injury history that limited him to just six total game appearances from 2016 to 2019. But at age 29, he was finally able to stay mostly healthy throughout 2020 and put on a performance that showed he is still capable of being the type of player he was early in his career when he was selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a

Trent Williams calls 49ers his No. 1 destination but is curious about his free agency value

By David Bonilla

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent. He would like to return to the 49ers, and the team would certainly like
