Hutchinson: Could the Tom Brady-to-49ers pipe dream actually work?

“Having been burned once already by not going after Brady, it’s a pricey road and complicated most clearly by the Buccaneers needing to play ball, but it is far from impossible.”

How new 49ers assistant head coach Lynn evaluates Lance

“In this league right now, I’ve said if you’re not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning — a guy that can stand back there and pick you apart, know where you’re going with the football before the ball is even snapped — you better have someone that can move around a little bit and get away from these 4.4 (-second) defensive ends.”

Another 49ers assistant coach leaves, joins Bengals staff

“James Bettcher’s time in San Francisco didn’t last long. The former Giants and Cardinals defensive coordinator joined the 49ers’ coaching staff last season as a senior defensive assistant last season. Now he’s joining the Bengals as their linebackers coach per a team announcement.”

Cohn: Will the 49ers Sign Marcus Mariota?

Kyle Shanahan was strongly in favor of the move.”
