Golden Nuggets: Linebacker concerns for 49ers

Sunday, February 18th, 2018 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. The offseason is progressing, and so far the San Francisco 49ers have had one great piece of news and one very bad piece of news. I think it’s strange we haven’t heard anything new on Reuben Foster, given that the only comment from the 49ers at this point are that they are “investigating.” It’s unclear if they’re waiting for the legal process or what, but it’s something the team will need to plan for very soon.

The NFL Scouting Combine, free agency and the NFL Draft are fast approaching and the 49ers will need to plan for whether or not they need to add someone to replace Foster for any period of time. Of course, football is secondary to real life and the real problems with Foster and with the people involved in the incident.

Either way, we’re going to just keep on keeping on here with the Golden Nuggets. Just remember: Fooch is traveling soon, so expect everything to burn to the ground with me in charge. Onto your links for the day.
