Good morning folks. Yesterday, I wrote about the San Francisco 49ers' cornerback position and outside linebacker Aldon Smith, and interestingly enough, those are two of the things I'm most interested in seeing next season. Smith because I think it's fairly evident to him that he has one more chance to keep himself in line and I think he'll be a force next season.
As far as the cornerback position is concerned, I'm really interested to see what Kenneth Acker and Keith Reaser can actually do. I'm not sure if they're actually really in the discussion for one of the starting or nickel sports, or if we've just been exposed to a considerable amount of organized team activities/minicamp hype. Obviously, we've all been susceptible to that at one point or another.
Let's hope that's not the case. Onto your links for the day.
