Here is a recap of the San Francisco 49ers offseason. Drama has been high, but so has the praise. We’re going to take a look at how the 49ers have performed since they last took the field.
So far so good. There has been no additional injuries in OTA’s. Navarro Bowman has not had any reported set backs and I expect he will be on the PUP list to start the season and be ready Week 8 for the stretch run. Tank Carradine and Marcus Lattimore had all of last season to recover and are reportedly at 100%.
The 49ers put on a clinic during the 3-day event. Trading back and trading up, the 49ers were able to manipulate the draft in their favor. They got the guys they valued above their draft position and the best players available in almost every round.
Free Agency: B
The 49ers brought in Antonie Bethea to play Donte Whitner’s old safety position. Hes a good veteran with plenty of miles left and a nose for the ball. They did draft a guy who could be his replacement though. Got my eye on this. Also decided to give former 49er, Brandon Lloyd a chance to compete for the 4th WR spot. He won’t win it, but maybe he can get his career resurrected
Stevie Johnson is the 49ers 3rd #1 WR. Doesn’t make too much money either. A 5th round pick? Steal. Amazing.
Off The Field: D
D should be for drama. Aldon Smith is a mess, however its gonna be to his favor he already sat down games last year, and I’ve gotten an indication that the airport incident won’t be enough to violate his prohbation, just cost him so extra fines and community service. Vernon Davis holding out of OTAs is fine with me, and didn’t seem to anger his teamates. Get the guy a new contract already! Front office situation seems fine and Colin Kaepernack situation turned out to be sorta hilarious.
