    • San Francisco 49ers: Top 5 offensive players
      The San Francisco 49ers head into the 2016 season without much to show for on the offensive side of the ball.  Last years’ 31st ranked offense did very little in free agency to improve.  They added mediocre at best offensive lineman Zane Beadles.  In the draft the 49ers used six of their eleven selections on offensive players, but only first round pick Joshua Garnett is expected to have an immediate impact.  With new head coach Chip Kelly calling the shots, the 49ers have a great chance of improving their offense.  Below are the San Francisco 49ers five best returning offensive players:…

    • Will a Contending NFL Team Sign Anquan Boldin for the 2016 Season?
      Veteran receiver Anquan Boldin is currently completing a mission trip in Haiti while his NFL free agency is still being resolved. Boldin has had a relatively quiet market this past offseason outside of a visit with the Washington Redskins.Boldin could be a solid veteran addition for a competing team such as the Seattle Seahawks.

    • Could a new situation make a difference for Colin Kaepernick?
      Few in the 49ers organization know about the quarterback situation better than now tight end Bruce Miller. The former fullback was drafted in 2011 by the 49ers, so he’s one of the elders on this exceedingly young team.
