Free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha reached agreement on a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday that could pay him as much as $3 million this year
Anquan Boldin, who is currently traveling in Africa on a charity mission, told ESPN he was stunned to hear he has been traded by the Baltimore Ravens to the San Francisco 49ers.
The San Francisco 49ers are “highly, highly, highly unlikely” to release quarterback Alex Smith, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
San Francisco’s 34-31 loss in Super Bowl XLVII is destined to haunt the San Francisco 49ers all offseason. It was that kind of game, a contest littered with what-ifs.
Super Bowl XLVII will be played on Sunday February 3, 2013 between the Baltimore Ravens (AFC Representative) and the San Francisco 49ers (NFC Representative). Both teams pulled off road upsets in the conference championship games to reach the Super Bowl, so there should be no shortage of momentum and feelings of destiny on either side.
This division was pathetic last season, but we aren’t here to talk too much about 2009. The Cardinals won the division last year, and look to be the front runners for taking the title in 2010 as well. The 49ers will probably be able to provide the most competition of any other team in this division, but again, top to bottom this is the worst division in the NFL. Let’s continue looking deeper to find out if there is a silver lining anywhere in this great cloud of the NFC West.
