s to make this offseason Frank Gore Color Rush Jersey , with one of the more notable being whether or not to push for a contract extension with DeForest Buckner. The 2016 first round pick is eligible for a contract extension this offseason for the first time, although the team is likely to exercise his fifth year option and work from there.Buckner and defensive lineman Ronald Blair, a fifth round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft are both eligible for contract extensions this offseason due to the current CBA. To prevent early career hold-outs, it requires drafted players wait three full seasons before they can negotiate a new contract.One exception to this rule is for undrafted free agents. The CBA dictates four year contracts for draft players, and a three-year wait to negotiate a new deal. For UDFAs, thee CBA dictates three year contracts, and a two-year wait to negotiate a new deal. That means that running back Matt Breida, wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, offensive lineman Erik Magnuson, and cornerback Greg Mabin can all potentially sign new contracts this offseason. All four are signed to three-year deals through 2019, but originally entered the NFL in 2017 as UDFAs.Breida will be an interesting decision with the return of Jerick McKinnon and questions about the real value of running backs in the modern NFL. There is value, but as we are seeing, there is a perception that the position is growing more fungible by the year. Given Breida’s ankle injury that continues to flare up, does he try and get some guaranteed money sooner rather than later, or does he roll the dice on a decent sized deal when he eventually hits free agency? My guess is the 49ers sit tight with him and we don’t see much advancement at this point.Bourne raises the question of what to make of the wide receiver position. Pierre Gar莽on has been placed on injured reserve https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Bradley-Pinion-Jersey , and we have seen Bourne starting opposite Dante Pettis for much of the past month. Does the team look to upgrade over him, or do they seem him as a guy who will further improve with the return of Jimmy Garoppolo, and thus might be a strong No. 2 to Pettis?Magnuson has one start at center this season, and a mix of DNPs and healthy and injured inactive designations. He is going to remain in a reserve role, likely facing increased competition next season. I doubt we see any kind of contract extension this offseason.The 49ers have no reason to hurry with any of these players due to protections in the CBA. If they have not signed an extension by the time their deals expire after the 2019 season, they will become restricted free agents. At that point, the 49ers can tender them with a first round tender, second round tender, or original round tender. All three allow the player to negotiate a contract with another team, and if the 49ers choose not to match an offer sheet, they get that compensation from the team. For UDFAs, an original round tender simply means they get a right of first refusal on any offer sheet. The one-year salary for each player under the tender decreases from first round to second round to original round. SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Richard Sherman has been around the NFL long enough that playing in exhibition games might not seem to be of critical importance.But after going more than nine months without game action following a season-ending Achilles tendon injury and joining a new team with the San Francisco 49ers, Sherman is eager to get back on the field.He said Wednesday he plans to play in San Francisco’s exhibition game at Indianapolis on Saturday in his first action for the 49ers at cornerback after spending his first seven seasons playing for NFC West rival Seattle.“It’s important just for a defensive continuity standpoint, just knowing where people are going to be on game day Laken Tomlinson Jersey ,” he said. “You don’t want the first time you deal with communicating with somebody else be with live bullets out there. You want to be out there and get the communication down if someone isn’t listening or looking and get those tweaks out of the way.”Sherman had hoped to play earlier this preseason as he worked his way back from the Achilles tendon injury, but he strained his hamstring early in training camp.Sherman felt ready to play last week, but coach Kyle Shanahan held him out to be cautious. Sherman took time after joint practices last week in Houston to get extra work against Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins and has no worries about his health now.“I’m not really concerned with how that will respond,” he said. “I’m more concerned about my game shape and making sure I can still go every single play because I haven’t played (since November).”Sherman has faced questions about what kind of player he can be at age 30 coming off a significant injury that led to his release by the Seahawks. Those only grew louder during the opening week of training camp when video came out of Sherman getting badly beaten deep by sprinter Marquise Goodwin. Coach Kyle Shanahan used that video as a teaching tool, praising Sherman to the rest of the team for his aggressiveness and willingness to test out his injured leg against one of the faster receivers in the league during practice.Sherman said wasn’t bothered by outside criticism and appreciated Shanahan’s support, comparing practice to writing a “rough draft” and saying his product will be polished by the time games start next month.“You’re allowed to make mistakes in practice,” he said. “You’re allowed to get beat and stumble, because then you figure out what works and what doesn’t work. If you find something that works you keep using it and put it into your bag for game day.”Sherman also criticized the NFL’s new rule that prohibits players from lowering the helmet to make contact anywhere on an opponent. The 49ers have been called for three personal fouls through two preseason games for violating the rule.“It’s an idiotic rule so there’s no need to go down that road,” Sherman said when asked if he understood the rule. “There’s no way you can tackle and play football. I could tackle like that if I was standing still, got on my knees, no one was moving and I was tackling bags or something. But to ask you to do that at full speed?”NOTES: The 49ers signed DT Chris Jones to a one-year deal. Jones started the final six games of 2016 for San Francisco before spending last year on IR. … Jones takes the place on the roster of DL Cedric Thornton, who announced his retirement at age 30.
