The NFL free agency signing period is just under a week away, with Saturday marking the start of the negotiating window for unsigned players. By Tuesday, your favorite teams can start adding pieces to the puzzle for a run at Super Bowl 50. In San Francisco that means we’ll likely see the remaking of the 49ers accelerate as players follow coach Jim Harbaugh out of town.
The 49ers have just started their bye week and have already gotten enough news to last the entire week. While some of it’s bad, most of it’s good and San Francisco will be a dangerous team coming off their bye week.
The most underrated players on the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers are both linebackers, according to a veteran NFL columnist – each a solid contributor to a linebacking corps that are among the league’s best.
The NFL revealed Friday that the Chiefs and 49ers each had eight players voted into the Pro Bowl, including running backs Jamaal Charles of Kansas City and Frank Gore of San Francisco.
The 49ers and Falcons both have a few players on this week’s injury report, but nothing major. When the two play Monday Night injuries will not be a deciding factor meaning the team that plays better will win.
No pregame injuries will come into play when the 49ers and Buccaneers meet Sunday. They are both as healthy as they could hope to be this late in the season, which is great for a San Francisco team playing in another important game.
The pivotal game between the 49ers and Seahawks will be without a few key players. As a whole though, both teams are relatively healthy and have to be pleased heading into this important rematch.
Despite the long list of names on the 49ers injury report, the fact remains that they are getting healthier. The Rams, on the other hand have a few players getting over concussions that may not be available Sunday.
While injuries may affect the Monday Night Game between the 49ers and Redskins, it won’t be significant. There are only 3 starters in real danger of missing the game, and each side has the depth to fill the void.
