Upon Further Review: Close, But No Cigar

Dec 3, 2015 at 8:17 AM


When last Sunday's game kicked off at Levi's Stadium, about half of the seats were occupied...an indication that not even the 49er faithful held out hope that the home team would put up much of a fight. But after an afternoon of "Three Stooges" style antics from the officials and marginal play from both teams, the 49ers found themselves locked up in a 13-13 tie late in the 4th quarter...against a 12 point favorite.

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month.
