“Toure is an interesting prospect. He has decent size at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, but tends to work better out of the slot. Additionally Toure is not a speedster, but is known for being an exceptional downhill threat, gaining speed as he runs deeper routes and showing excellent ball skills. He posted the second-highest yards per catch (19.5) in Nebraska history.”

Greg Papa floats sleeper team that could enter Jimmy Garoppolo sweepstakes

“If you want to save the year. I think Cleveland with Deshaun Watson is a Super Bowl team. The AFC is loaded so it may not turn out that way, but it’s a really good roster. I’m not going to trust Baker to be the backup now, he’s pouting like a child. They’ll move him around the draft. Brissett is a nice player, but I think he’s a one or two game stopgap. He’s a great backup until you have to play him. Jimmy is a better player, we all acknowledge that. That could be the difference of coming out of the Watson suspension with a chance in November to make the playoffs and win.”

‘He’s a natural-born winner’: Emmanuel Sanders defends 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo

“I love Jimmy G,” Sanders said on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. “This is a guy that I remember, going into games, I used to play with so much confidence because I knew that this guy is a winner. You go back and look at his win percentage, his win percentage is ridiculous. He’s a natural-born winner. The moment he got to San Francisco, he started winning.””

49ers legend Frank Gore to make pro boxing debut for Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Promotions
