The San Francisco 49ers showed off their new home in style Thursday while quietly making a move to protect quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s blindside.
The Oakland Raiders have agreed to a five-year contract with offensive lineman Rodger Saffold and let left tackle Jared Veldheer leave through free agency for Arizona.
Ever since Jim Harbaugh arrived in San Francisco three years ago to build the 49ers into a consistent winner, a bruising offensive line has been the backbone of the team’s offensive success.
I could blog about the horrible call on Ahamd Brooks. But that’s low-hangin fruit. The 49ers 23-20 loss to New Orleans wasn’t’ made on one bad call alone.
The Raiders began practice Monday with the same makeshift line that struggled mightily in their last game eight days ago in Kansas City with many of their starters still dealing with injuries.
“Right now they’re one of the best or the best offensive line in football,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew he likes the 49ers in the Super Bowl, “(But) it’s going to be a tough game, I think it’s going to be a physical game, I think it’s going to be a close game.”
The Oakland Raiders have hired former Pro Bowl guard Steve Wisniewski as their assistant offensive line coach.
