49ers could eye Brady in late playoff run as they did with Rivers

“I’m not opposed to it,” Brady said. “I don’t know if they’re going to let me if I become an owner of an NFL team. I don’t know. I’m always going to be in good shape, always going to be able to throw the ball. So, to come in for a little bit, like (Michael Jordan) coming back? I don’t know if they’d let me, but I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”

49ers NFL Draft big board: 41 players to consider across the 7 rounds (paywall)

“With the 49ers’ top three cornerbacks all under contract only through 2024, don’t rule out an early swing at the position — especially because new defensive assistant Brandon Staley might lobby for a versatile corner to play his “Star” role (Jalen Ramsey and Derwin James Jr.played this position for Staley at past stops). Evaluators have compared [Terrion] Arnold to the Chicago Bears’ Jaylon Johnson. He should be capable of lining up both inside and outside.”

Draft Watch: 49ers meet with Oregon safety Evan Williams

““Williams was a tad more consistent in 2022 while at Fresno State, but he was also put in better position to succeed,” Lance Zierlein wrote in the player’s scouting report. “He is broad-hipped with limited agility and athleticism to align too far away from the line of scrimmage. He’s a box safety with a good feel for finding entry points and making tackles near the line. He can match up underneath and is average in zone but will allow too many big plays against NFL wideouts. He has a chance to impress on special teams but inconsistent open-field tackling could hurt his chances of becoming a viable backup strong safety.”

Draft Watch: 49ers meeting with Ohio State DT Michael Hall Jr.

“With his first-step burst and lateral agility, Hall quickly gets vertical and is a tough player to handle one-on-one,” The Athletic’s Dane Brugler wrote in his draft profile of the player. “He uses his long arms and natural leverage to work underneath blocks, although his lack of size and anchor put him in compromised positions, especially versus the run.

“Overall, Hall was more of a flash player than consistent force, but his quick-twitch movements and natural energy are the ingredients of a disruptive gap penetrator. If he stays healthy, he will be an immediate rotation player and eventual starting three-technique tackle in a four-man front.”

Aiyuk hilariously goes undercover as Applebee’s employee

“On the latest episode of the Whistle series “Undercover Athlete,” Aiyuk spent the day working as a waiter at an Applebee’s location. The partnership between the restaurant chain and the 49ers wideout was to promote the new “Whole Lotta Bacon Burger” menu item.

Taking the pseudonym “Gerald” and putting on some large fake glasses, the 26-year-old learned the ropes from his manager before going out on the floor and taking drink and food orders.”
