It's been yet another day and we still have no updates on San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith. One whole day, you guys! It's funny seeing the constant updates which basically amount to "Jim Tomsula was there, but he didn't talk to him so we have no idea." I really hope Smith comes back and as I said last time during the Golden Nuggets, I have a strong feeling that he will return for another season.
Anyway, the 49ers announced a big list of tryout players and also -- did you hear -- people are apparently really excited about quarterback Dylan Thompson! I think it's fairly entertaining that we're talking about how excited the 49ers are for a guy who is essentially the backup by default since there's literally nobody else at the position but hey ... maybe he'll be great! That would be swell.
