3. Where can I get some more of those nachos?

4. We made few trades because, in the heat of the moment, we froze.

    "We only picked Tank Carradine because we loved those old shows with David Carradine in them." "He was the only one who came to interviews without baggy pants hanging down at the knees. That's when we knew we were going to draft him." "We never really talked about the draft until today. We just used Mel Kiper's analysis. Hat's off to Matt Millen for the inside tip."

What Steve Young wants to see from Trey Lance during OTAs

Trey Lance, Brock Purdy, and Jimmy Garoppolo. All three quarterbacks started games for the San Francisco 49ers this season. However, only one will be available when organized team activities (OTAs) begin in May. Purdy suffered a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow of his throwing arm during the first quarter of the NFC Championship Game. He is expected to miss about six months. Garoppolo is scheduled to hit free agency. On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked if he could envision a scenario where the veteran quarterback returns to the team in 2023. "No,



Rapoport: If the 49ers want Tom Brady, it won't be cheap

Don't expect Tom Brady to offer his favorite childhood team, the San Francisco 49ers, up a discount should head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch be interested. Rookie Brock Purdy earned over $700,000 during this season. He's set to cost the 49ers nearly $900,000 in 2023, a drop in the bucket compared to the $30 million the Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid Brady this season, and they will be accounting for his salary for years to come, with the future Hall of Fame quarterback's salary cap hit spread out through 2026, per Spotrac. NFL insider Ian Rapoport believes an offseason quarterback decision may come down to Purdy versus Brady. A significant factor will be the cost of

According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL has informed teams that the 2023 salary cap will be set at $224.8 million, a $16.6 million increase from the 2022 season's salary cap. "That's up from $208.2 million for the current season and reflects the uptick in revenue that the league will enjoy from new broadcasting deals that kick in during the 2023 season," wrote Josh Alper. "It also shows that the league has rebounded well from the drop to a $182.5 million salary cap in 2021 due to the impact of COVID on attendance and other revenues." OverTheCap.com already lists the San Francisco 49ers owning $16.4 million of cap space under the new $224.8

Do the San Francisco 49ers need to do something drastic to get over the playoff hump that has plagued them for years? They reached the Super Bowl during the 2019 season but couldn't slam the door on the Kansas City Chiefs. They've come one win short of returning to the Super Bowl in each of the past two seasons, including Sunday's NFC Championship Game loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. What's next for the 49ers' quarterback situation? One day into their offseason, the speculation seems to be running wild, especially after news broke that Brock Purdy, injured against the Eagles, suffered a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his throwing
