Golden Nuggets: Don't Forget About Jimmie

Monday, June 16, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning! Now that the San Antonio Spurs have completed their domination of the Miami Heat, we have one less thing to distract us from the NFL's off-season lull. Unless of course, you very much enjoy the international brand of Football where (if you can believe it) the ball actually touches the foot most of the time. Imagine that! But all sarcasm aside, I hope you had a great Father's Day celebration. I know not all of us may have our dad's around any longer (for various reasons, mine being that my parents migrated to another country), but I trust that your weekend was well spent.

Until we have our NFL Sundays back, the number of stories will continue to be sparse on Monday, so please don't complain (too much) about the quality of the links we have. We have scraped the bottom of the barrel and created a hole doing so. We do have one article featuring Jimmie Ward, who continues his comeback from foot surgery. Eric Branch explains how he was completely overlooked coming out of high school, but he was fully on Trent Baalke's radar coming out of college. I'm raring o see him at full speed so we can look forward to another quality season from Team HarBaalke and the red and gold crew.

This is NOT an article and I don't want to assume that this is about football or being on the 49ers, but Kassim Osgood just worried his twitter followers. | Anyone know of anything going on with Kassim Osgood? (Reddit)
