Call it a legacy beginning—Jerry Rice Jr. is trying out for the San Francisco 49ers.
Sir Paul McCartney’s Candlestick Park farewell concert is one of a series of final events at the 54-year-old stadium that will include a gathering of 49ers legends.

“The first thing I have to do is apologize to the Pro Bowl,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “I thought it was going to be bad. I thought it was embarrassing.

“It’s easy to say would you put Steve Young in there,” John said. But the picks are limited to four, and adding one means removing another. “I’d put Steve Young in there. I may put guys like Hugh McElhenney in there. I may put a guy like Joe Perry in there. I may put a guy like John Henry Johnson from that million dollar backfield (in there). I may throw a Y.A. Tittle in there. Those were guys that were really a big part of the 49ers also, although in a different era. They’re all in the Hall of Fame too.”
