Golden Nuggets: Combine media availability brings news and speculation...huzzah!

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

49ers links for Friday, February 21, 2014.

Apologies for the delay on the Nuggets. There is a lot of content from yesterday as the 49ers had plenty of folks in attendance at the NFL Combine. Jim Harbaugh met with the media, so naturally there is a whole lot to pick apart from his Q&A. He didn't say a whole lot, but he had a few pieces of information to pass along related to Tank Carradine and NaVorro Bowman. Bay Area Sports Guy has a solid post on that, breaking down the believability about what Jim Harbaugh had to say. Give that a read. It's also worth noting that Trent Baalke will chat with the media at 7:30 a.m. PT today. The folks at have been live-streaming the press conferences, so check them out.

On a side note, recently someone suggested putting together a post running down all the different player charities. Some of you are in a position to be able to give to charity on occasion, and would like to donate to charities connected to 49ers players. The 49ers community relations department does not have a complete list of player charities, so I'm going to try and put something together on that. I know the more notable player charities, but there are a lot of random ones I don't know. It will probably involve some calls to agents, but if you happen to know any random player charities, let me know. At this point, I know some of the stuff Anquan Boldin, Colin Kaepernick, Joe Staley and Vernon Davis do, but not much beyond that. That will be a summer project of sorts.
