Good morning everyone, Ninjames here with your Nuggets for the day. With news of the training camps announced yesterday I'm basically salivating for more news. A signing, anything of that nature and I'll be all over it like white on rice. Yesterday we had three links, I think the day before we had three and it seems to be a theme going on. Today I think we're ready to break the three barrier and proceed with four, but I wouldn't want to overload you with all of that news, now would I? I think we actually have a couple good pieces today, so thank your lucky stars. We've got a post looking at wide receivers, I think another look at future opponents and something from the official website - and on top of that some good stuff coming up today on Niners Nation so stick around. Here's your links, enjoy.
Barrows has a post covering some of the lesser known receivers currently with the team. I agree with his assessment that five wide receivers will be kept - but it's important not to buy into those measurables he posts about Scott Long. We'll keep at least one on the practice squad, and to me it's Bakari Grant. (SacBee.com)
A look at some of the upcoming training camp battles from Maiocco. I don't understand why fullback isn't there, since contact is what we've been waiting for to see what we've got in Brit Miller, Moran Norris and Jehuu Caulcrick. (CSNBayArea.com)
How about a breakdown for the Kansas City Chiefs, whom the 49ers will be playing in week three. (Examiner.com)
Sando has his latest mailbag post. He hasn't had anything I've linked to in awhile, but these are always a good read. (ESPN.com)
A spotlight on Frank Gore in fantasy football. Thanks to StereoPete for sending me this link, I'd never been to this site before. (FootballGuys.com)
More fantasy football goodness, with a sleeper spotlight on QB Alex Smith. One can only hope, right? I'll pick him up in the later rounds, but he'll be one of the few 49ers I take. (LestersLegends.com)
I didn't really read this article so apologies if it's not put together well but it's a look at some things that could happen(with over/under scenarios) in the NFC. (NFLGridironGab.com)
Here's a camp diary from Shawntae Spencer. I like this dude a lot. (49ers.com)
Rival Blog Buzz Revenge of the Birds has a post about Kurt Warner and his hall of fame eligibility. Field Gulls has a bit about projecting their Leo defensive end and a season retrospective on Kelly Jennings. At Turf Show Times, they continue to exploit their biggest offseason storyline by looking ahead to next offseason's storyline concerning O.J. Atogwe and whether or not he will be around.
Yesterday On Niners Nation Kicked off with the Golden Nuggets, a post on the CFL on the NFL network, we had a post on elusiveness and whether it can be measured as a stat, and then we had a post looking at NFL Network's top five tight ends.
