Just when you think the offseason can’t get any worse it does. ESPN’s Outside the Lines is reporting that linebacker Chris Borland is retiring due to long term effects of head trauma.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland, one of the NFL’s top rookies last season, told “Outside the Lines” on Monday that he is retiring because of concerns about the long-term effects of repetitive head trauma.

Borland, 24, said he notified the 49ers on Friday. He said he made his decision after consulting with family members, concussion researchers, friends and current and former teammates, and studying what is known about the relationship between football and neurodegenerative disease.

“I just honestly want to do what’s best for my health,” Borland told “Outside the Lines.” “From what I’ve researched and what I’ve experienced, I don’t think it’s worth the risk.”

Early reports are the Wright deal is for 3 million per year which can bump up to 4 million if he meets the incentives.

Reggie Bush Signs with 49ers http://49ersnews.com/2015/03/reggie-bush-signs-with-49ers/ http://49ersnews.com/2015/03/reggie-bush-signs-with-49ers/#comments Sat, 14 Mar 2015 18:35:39 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9239 The 49ers and running back Reggie Bush have agreed on a deal according to sources.

To quote the line from Booger of Revenge of the Nerds…’We’ve got Bush, we’ve got Bush.’

Adam Schefter is reporting that the 49ers have agreed to a deal with running back Reggie Bush.

It may be 10 years late, but the 49ers finally won the Bush bowl. The 49ers brought Bush in for a visit on Wednesday and GM Trent Baalke had nothing but good things to say about the running back. Bush had interest from the Saints and Patriots, but once the Saints signed CJ Spiller and he left New England without a contract all signs pointed to the running back returning back home to California.

Bush will join the three headed rushing attack alongside Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter.

Son of a…Just when you finish reading the news that Patrick Willis is considering retirement. Word is starting to become official that Justin Smith will also retire.

We knew that Smith was debating retirement, but although no formal announcement has been made. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Justin will in fact retire.

So in a matter of 24 hours, the 49ers lose Gore, Willis and Smith.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk had an article stating that a San Fran Surprise was coming on Monday. They did not go into specifics, but mentioned a formal announcement was coming that a player on the team last season would not be back. Speculation began and not long after Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports tweeted that 49ers are bracing themselves for Patrick Willis to announce his retirement.

We’ll have to wait to see if it infact true, but signs are pointing to it being true.

Damn, can’t believe we may lose Frank Gore and Patrick Willis in a 24 hour period.

Goodbye Gore http://49ersnews.com/2015/03/goodbye-gore/ http://49ersnews.com/2015/03/goodbye-gore/#comments Sun, 08 Mar 2015 20:00:30 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9219 Reports are that the 49ers are prepared to move on from Gore and that the Eagles are offering him $5-$7 mil in guarantees.

All indications are pointing to the 49ers moving on without Frank Gore as their running back. Jed York and Trent Baalke both said that they wanted Gore back, but recent reports that the Eagles were making a push from Gore, made the 49ers realize that the 49ers all-time leading rusher will take his services elsewhere.

Rand Getlin NFL insider for Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Eagles have a two year offer on the table with $7 mil in guaranteed cash for Gore.

We hoped this day would never come, we all wanted Gore to finish his career with the 49ers, but in today’s NFL we have to realize that that is not possible. It sucks to lose Gore, but at the end of the day the NFL is a business and that price tag wasn’t in the 49ers plan.
