49ers free agents 2014: A list of the notable names


The San Francisco 49ers face their share of question marks this offseason. We have a list of the team's free agents heading into the offseason. New to Niners Nation? Sign up here and join the discussion!

The San Francisco 49ers returned to Santa Clara last night, and today they will clear out their lockers and begin the offseason. Coach Harbaugh will close out the season with his end-of-year press conference on Tuesday, and then this franchise begins the long march toward Super Bowl 49.

The team faces numerous question marks heading into the offseason, with numerous free agents, and of course some big contract extensions on the horizon. We'll have more on the salary cap issues with currently rostered players, but for now, it's time to look at the various free agents. Two of them had tweets after the game:

Anthony Dixon and Jonathan Goodwin are two of the several unrestricted free agents on the 49ers roster. Goodwin could consider retirement, and the 49ers likely will be looking at other options at center. Goodwin has been a solid performer for the 49ers, but with so many other potential salary obligations, the team likely will look to save money at center.

Dixon has been a solid special teams contributor, and general do everything guy. However, the running back depth on this team was already significant, and will only grow in 2014. Marcus Lattimore should be back at 100 percent, and Jewel Hampton will likely also be in the mix in training camp. The 49ers could surprise us and bring him back, but I wouldn't be surprised to see somebody try and bring him into a running back committee situation.

Here is a rundown of the 49ers various 2014 free agents. I don't believe I'm missing anybody, but if you think someone is missing, let me know. We'll be back later today with some more detail on the currently rostered 49ers contract situations.
