Golden Nuggets: Good luck, David Akers

Thursday, March 7, 2013 edition of Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the web.


Hey all - Aaron is away for a few days so you guys are mind through the weekend. Aren't you excited? At any rate, the San Francisco 49ers elected to release David Akers on Wednesday and it's a move that few of us can argue with. Truthfully, I'm stoked with what Akers was able to do in 2011 and was impressed with his composure through struggles and reported injuries last season.

All said, I hope he is successful wherever he goes in 2012 if he does continue playing, which I expect he will do. That said, I'm looking forward to whoever it is the 49ers bring in to replace him. Again, I'm hoping it's a rookie, preferably drafted rather early to ensure they get their man, what with the plethora of draft picks this team has.

Let's jump right into your links for the day, yeah?
