Golden Nuggets: 49ers veterans report!

Thursday, July 25, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Scott Halleran

The entire 49ers roster is officially back at camp as veterans reported to Santa Clara on Wednesday. The first practice is later today, but in the meantime, the media had a chance to speak with various players at the facility. Patrick Willis and Donte Whitner got much of the coverage, which is not surprising given their veteran status on the team. Colin Kaepernick and Justin Smith will meet with the media today, so I'm sure tomorrow will feature plenty of coverage of that.

On a side note, the first Niners Nation podcast is officially up at Blog Talk Radio. Give it a listen when you get a minute. The podcast is an hour long, and the sound struggles in the first 25 minutes (forgot headphones initially), but it was a fun discussion with Danny Tuccitto, who some of you know here as Florida Danny. This will hopefully become a regular thing. I also have submitted it to iTunes so you should be able to subscribe there soon. On to the links!
