Golden Nuggets: Not much happening with 49ers

Friday, July 8th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. The San Francisco 49ers aren't up to much as it's the offseason, as much as we may want something to take our minds off what is happening outside of football. Whatever the case ... I'll post what links there are, and I'm sure we'll have more than a few repeats.

One link has Colin Kaepernick and other players speaking out about the recent shootings and I urge you all to read what has been said thus far. But if you want to read about football and as it pertains to the 49ers, well Chris Biderman of USA Today has a few roster rankings posts (I still think he ranks rookies far too highly).

There's also a ranking of the worst linebacker contracts from Pro Football Focus, but like most of their rankings since their refocusing, they're puzzling and offer little evidence to back up their claims. They claim NaVorro Bowman has one of the worst linebacker contracts in the league and suggested that he wasn't good last season, which is hilarious.

They offer stats, most of which are meaningless out of contest. Look at it for a laugh. Or tell me how wrong I am.
