  • Richard Sherman Interested In Seahawks Reunion

    Free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman confirmed on Wednesday that he would be interested in a reunion with the Seattle Seahawks. "It's always in the cards," Sherman said. "I spend my entire offseason in Seattle, that's where I live, that's where my family is. So, it's never out of the cards." Sherman said he and the Seahawks have had conversations about a potential return in recent weeks, but everything has to shake out right. All signs point to Seattle having no need to bring Sherman back after all their offseason and draft acquisitions in the secondary. During his seven years in Seattle, the future Hall of Famer made four Pro Bowls and was named a first-team All-Pro three times while being a crucial member of the team's Legion of Boom defense that won a Super Bowl. Sherman also said he'd be stoked if he landed back with the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Wants To Help Trey Lance

    San Francisco 49ers incumbent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said he wants to help rookie quarterback Trey Lance with his transition to the NFL after the team took him at No. 3 overall in the first round of last week's draft. Garoppolo entered the league with the New England Patriots and learned behind future Hall of Famer Tom Brady. "I try to use my own personal experiences and just what I went through, what helped me, what challenged me as a young player," Garoppolo said. "I'm going to use those tools that helped me and try to help Trey out." Jimmy G is 24-9 in his time with the 49ers, but he's been injured in two of his three seasons. Garoppolo is expected to enter the 2021 season as the starter under center, but another injury or poor performance could thrust Lance into the spotlight at some point in his rookie season. There is no definitive plan or timetable for Lance to take the starting job next season.

  • 49ers Draft Running Back Elijah Mitchell

    With the 194th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Lousiana running back Elijah Mitchell. This is the second running back picked by the 49ers in this draft after Ohio State's Trey Sermon in the third round. Mitchell had 41 rushing touchdowns and five receiving touchdowns over his four seasons in college. He can be a solid NFL backup somewhere, but the 49ers backfield just feels too crowded for Mitchell to get much run at this point. Maybe he has some dynasty value for the future, but he's not on the redraft radar right now.

  • 49ers Draft Ambry Thomas With Third-Round Selection

    The San Francisco 49ers selected Michigan cornerback Ambry Thomas with the No. 102 overall pick in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft on Friday night. Thomas is projected to serve as a bump-and-run cornerback with starting upside for San Francisco. At just 6-foot, 183 pounds, he is not very physical, though, and will surely struggle against bigger, more physical pass-catchers in the NFL. While Thomas isn't all that agile, he makes up for it with impressive recovery speed. He opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 and tallied 38 tackles (three for loss), three interceptions, four pass breakups and two fumble recoveries in 13 starts for Michigan in 2019.
