Golden Nuggets: The last wait begins

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Friday, June 21, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning ladies and gents. So ... how about all that Aaron Hernandez craziness? Sheesh, writing about that on the SB Nation news desk just felt odd. I hate having to write about that stuff. It's easily the biggest thing I dislike about what I do ... writing about all of the negative things that surrounds football players.

But anyway, minicamp is over and now the long wait begins. Training camp won't be until the latter half of July, and that means a lot of dead space between now and then. Gathering the links will be ... somewhat annoying at this point, so if I miss any, and if Aaron misses any, please link them in the comments.

Quick links for the day, though. Enjoy guys.
