Cheap NFL 49ers Chris Thompson Jersey Free Shipping

Unlike years prior, there aren’t an extensive amount of voids the San Francisco 49ers must address in the offseason. While a good number of headline signings have found homes in the first week of free agency, San Francisco managed to make several under-the-radar moves to shore up depth at a number of positions.

Here we’ll take a look at several impact players that still remain on the open market and assess the 49ers needs at various positions.

Quarterback
Top Available: Blake Bortles, Joe Flacco, Blaine Gabbert, Josh McCown, Jameis Winston, Cam Newton

On the 49ers Roster: Authentic C. J. Beathard Jersey, Authentic Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey, Authentic Nick Mullens Jersey

Analysis: Not much to be said here. Garoppolo finished his first full season as a starter while passing for nearly 4,000 yards and tied for fourth in the league with Kirk Cousins with a 69.1 completion percentage. Garoppolo’s 27 touchdowns tied with Drew Brees and Carson Wentz for the fifth-most in the NFL in 2019. His first full season proved better than expected, helping lead the 49ers to their first Super Bowl appearance since 2013.

The 49ers held on to three quarterbacks in 2019, with Mullens suiting up for all 16 games in addition to three in the postseason. There’s no word on whether Kyle Shanahan will employ the same tactic heading into next season.

Priority: Low

Running Back

Top available: Ameer Abdullah, Devonta Freeman, Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde, LeSean McCoy, Lamar Miller, Ty Montgomery, C.J. Prosise

On the 49ers Roster: Matt Breida, Authentic Tevin Coleman Jersey, Authentic Jerick McKinnon Jersey, Authentic Raheem Mostert Jersey, Authentic Jeff Wilson Jersey.

Analysis: San Francisco boasted one of the best rushing attacks in the league last season, ranking second in the NFL with 144.1 yards per game. Part is due to the 49ers stable of running backs that featured Mostert, Coleman, Breida and Wilson Jr..

Mostert is coming off of a breakout season that moved him to the top of the depth chart by the end of the season. Mostert led the 49ers running backs with a career-high 772 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019. He also added 336 yards and five touchdowns in the postseason that featured his 220-yard performance in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

To add to San Francisco’s already-loaded backfield, McKinnon has been medically cleared to return to the field after being sidelined for two seasons with a knee injury.

The 49ers have previously kept four running backs on the roster heading into the season. They have tough decisions looming with five running backs worthy of being on an NFL roster.

“I would love to keep it going forward,” Shanahan said last month. “I think the group that we had last year showed where we could get with them, but it’s always hard to do that. I hope that we can. It’s not as simple as just tying all the running backs together, it’s how you compare them to the other positions and everything. It’s two years in a row that we’ve gone in with four backs and we’ve needed all four. It’s something that I used to look at as a luxury and now I’m almost feeling like it’s a necessity.”

Priority: Low

Wide Receiver
Top available: Geronimo Allison, Taylor Gabriel, Rashard Higgins, Johnny Holton, Demarcus Robinson

On the 49ers Roster: Kendrick Bourne, Marquise Goodwin, Jalen Hurd, Richie James Jr., Dante Pettis, Shawn Poindexter, Deebo Samuel, Trent Taylor, Authentic Chris Thompson Jersey

Analysis: The biggest news surrounding the 49ers pass catchers was the loss of veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders to the New Orleans Saints in free agency. Sanders hauled in 36 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games with the 49ers and quickly emerged as key asset among San Francisco’s young receiving corps.

The 49ers could look to fill Sanders’ void through free agency. That, or, seek a talented wideout in what has been referred to as the deepest draft class of receivers in recent history.

The 49ers are anticipating the return of Trent Taylor and Jalen Hurd. Taylor missed the entire 2019 season following multiple setbacks from a stress fracture in his foot. Hurd also missed last season while nursing a back injury. Both are expected to make full returns by the start of training camp this summer.

Priority: Medium

Tight End
Top available: Charles Clay, Jordan Reed, Luke Stocker, Geoff Swaim, Delanie Walker

On the 49ers Roster: Ross Dwelley, Daniel Helm, George Kittle

Analysis: The 49ers lost tight end Levine Toilolo to the New York Giants in free agency and veteran Garrett Celek announced his retirement via an Instagram post. San Francisco could look for additional depth behind George Kittle and second-year tight end Ross Dwelley, who registered career highs in games played (16), games started (six), receptions (15), receiving yards (91) and receiving touchdowns (two) in 2019.

Kittle registered his second-consecutive five-touchdown, 1,000-plus-yard season, leading the team with 1,053 yards on 85 targets. The 49ers could seek an additional tight end this offseason to help relieve Kittle of his considerable workload.

Priority: Medium

Offensive Line
Top available: Demar Dotson, Cordy Glenn, James Hurst, Ronald Leary, Jason Peters, Daryl Williams

On the 49ers Roster: Kofi Amichia, Jake Brendel, Daniel Brunskill, Shon Coleman, Jaryd Jones-Smith, Mike McGlinchey, Ross Reynolds, Weston Richburg, Joe Staley, Laken Tomlinson, Leonard Wester, Justin Skule

Analysis: San Francisco already moved on from right guard Mike Person and could seek the benefit of a veteran free agent. The team recently tendered offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill, who made several starts at both tackle spots and guard at various points last season. Brunskill, who was an integral part of the 49ers success last season, could assume a larger role in 2020.

This year’s draft is also expected to have a surplus of high-end offensive line talent where the 49ers can add depth and/or address the void at right guard. San Francisco could seek the eventual replacement for veteran left tackle Joe Staley. Staley signed a two-year contract extension last June and in his fourteenth NFL season, enters the final year of his contract.

Priority: High

Defensive Line
Top available: Jadeveon Clowney, Markus Golden, Everson Griffen, Clay Matthews, Cameron Wake, Shelby Harris, Damon Harrison, Margus Hunt, Brandon Mebane

On the 49ers Roster: Arik Armstead, Alex Barnett, Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, Kevin Givens, Willie Henry Jr., Kerry Hyder, D.J. Jones, Jonathan Kongbo, Kentavius Street, Solomon Thomas, Ray Smith, Jullian Taylor

Analysis: The biggest question for the 49ers this offseason is how they will replace DeForest Buckner. Depth was a strength of the 49ers defensive line last season and appears to still be the case despite the trade. In addition to Arik Armstead, San Francisco re-signed defensive lineman Ronald Blair III, who has experience playing multiple spots along the defensive line.

The 49ers also signed former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Kerry Hyder as an additional depth piece. The 49ers could seek an affordable option in free agency or seek an interior presence through the draft.

Priority: Low

Linebacker
Top available: Mark Barron, Anthony Chickillo, Kareem Martin, Alec Ogletree, Reggie Ragland

On the 49ers Roster: Azeez Al-Shaair, Kwon Alexander, Joey Alfieri, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, Dre Greenlaw, Mark Nzeocha, Fred Warner

Analysis: Kwon Alexander, Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw each made significant contributions in 2019. Alexander became an intangible asset to the 49ers defense while Warner took a major leap in Year 2. Greenlaw stepped up when called upon, starting in place of Alexander who missed seven games with a torn pectoral. He also became the unsung hero to San Francisco’s postseason path.

San Francisco also saw production out of Al-Shaair, the undrafted rookie who beat our several veterans for a spot on the 49ers 53-man roster. The 49ers agreed to terms with inside linebacker Joe Walker this week, who made 11 starts with the Arizona Cardinals last season and was a key contributor on special teams.

As it stands, San Francisco appears set with their talent at linebacker, unless they see undeniable talent to bolster the position in the draft.

Priority: Low

Cornerback
Top available: Prince Amukamara, Bashaud Breeland, Ronald Darby, Johnathan Joseph, Xavier Rhodes, Logan Ryan

On the 49ers Roster: Tim Harris, Jermaine Kelly, Emmanuel Moseley, Richard Sherman, Teez Tabor, K’Waun Williams, Ahkello Witherspoon

Analysis: San Francisco saw production from two of their young corners in 2019. Witherspoon and Moseley both saw snaps opposite Sherman at various points in the season and aided in San Francisco’s second-ranked passing defense.

Sherman will enter the final year of his contract with the 49ers after returning to elite form. Sherman allowed a passer rating of just 45.3 en route to a Pro Bowl selection and second-team All-Pro honors. While the 49ers have the option of extending the corner beyond 2020, there’s a possibility the 49ers could add another veteran to play opposite Sherman, or seek his potential successor in the draft.

Priority: Medium

Safety
Top available: Morgan Burnett, Blake Countess, A.J. Howard, Tony Jefferson, Colin Jones, Reshad Jones, Damarious Randall, Eric Reid

On the 49ers Roster: Chris Edwards, Marcell Harris, Derrick Kindred, Tarvarius Moore, D.J. Reed Jr., Jaquiski Tartt, Jacob Thieneman, Jimmie Ward

Analysis: One of the biggest questions heading into the offseason was the future of free safety Jimmie Ward. His free agency decisions would ultimately determine the 49ers offseason plans. The 49ers re-signed Ward to a three-year contract extension this week, keeping the free safety in San Francisco for the foreseeable future.

“This is our year!” screams the irrational football fan in early July.

But could this actually be the 49ers’ year? Or at least close to it?

Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch are entering their third season at the helm in San Francisco. So far, they’ve come closer to the No. 1 pick than the playoffs. Through two seasons, coach Shanahan’s 49ers are 10-22 in the regular season.

There are factors that show the 49ers could be primed for a breakout season, however. Sports Illustrated lists the 49ers as one of five teams — along with the Bears, Browns, Colts and Dolphins — that are entering their Super Bowl window.

Here are three reasons why.

Jimmy Garoppolo
It all starts with Jimmy G.

Sports Illustrated’s Conor Orr says the quarterback’s “contract looks better with time.” The 49ers made Garoppolo, 27, the highest-paid player in the NFL at the time when they signed him to a five-year, $137.5 million contract in February 2018.

But only 53.8 percent — $74 million — is guaranteed, which makes it such a steal to Orr.

When healthy, Garoppolo has proven his worth. He’s gone 6-2 as a starter for the 49ers while completing 64.8 percent of his passes. He did tear his ACL in third game of the season last year, though.

The 49ers need Garoppolo to stay healthy. If he does, they’ll have a chance to win plenty of games.

Defensive line
“On paper, their defensive line is how a general manager would draw it up in their wildest dreams: All first-round picks, all under the age of 30,” Orr writes.

The 49ers’ defensive line, from left to right, is expected to consist of Nick Bosa (21), Arik Armstead (25), DeForest Buckner (25) and Dee Ford (28). That should be a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.

The trio of Buckner, Ford and Armstead combined for 28 sacks this past season. Bosa, the No. 2 pick in the draft, is expected to contribute right away and add to an imposing pass rush.

Free agency
Orr highlighted three signings by the 49ers in free agency: Linebacker Kwon Alexander, Running back Tevin Coleman and offensive lineman Weston Richburg (who signed in the 2018 offseason).

The 49ers signed Alexander to a four-year, $54 million contract. Though he’s coming off a torn ACL as well, Alexander is expected to be healthy for the season and pair perfectly with Fred Warner and Malcolm Smith.

Coleman could be the steal of the offseason. San Francisco has a loaded backfield, but Coleman could end up being the best fit. He has worked with Shanahan before, and is a factor as a ball-carrier and receiver.

Richburg, 27, signed a five-year, $47.5 million contract before the 2018 season. He started 15 games at center last season before being shut down for the finale with a knee injury.

The 49ers are creating the right combination of youth and experience. The third time could be the charm for Lynch and Shanahan.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander plans to sign a four-year, $54 million deal that includes $27 million guaranteed with the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN and multiple reports.

Before Alexander sustained a torn ACL on Oct. 21 last season, the Buccaneers were willing to offer him as much as $10 million annually, a source familiar with the negotiations told ESPN.

But the feeling at the time was that Alexander, 24, who led the NFL with 108 solo tackles in 2016, was seeking closer to Luke Kuechly’s annual salary of $12.4 million and an agreement could not be reached. Now Alexander has topped Kuechly with a deal that averages $13.5 million per season.

After re-signing left tackle Donovan Smith last week, the Bucs had less than $3.5 million in salary cap space.

Even after the injury, the Bucs expressed a desire to retain Alexander, whom general manager Jason Licht called the “heartbeat of the defense” — but at the right price.

Sources say Alexander’s recovery is right on schedule. He has been under the care of Dr. James Andrews and has resumed weightlifting — including squatting — and is now jogging.

Driven to be “one of the best safeties in this league,” Mathieu, for the second consecutive season, played in all 16 games and tied his career high with 89 tackles. He also had three sacks, a fumble recovery and two interceptions.

Before joining the Texans, Mathieu ended three of his first five NFL seasons on injured reserve, including tearing his left ACL and LCL in 2013 and his right ACL in 2015, when he was a first-team All-Pro and selected to the Pro Bowl. In 2017, he played in all 16 games for the first time since entering the NFL.

The Chiefs are intent on finding a safety to pair with Eric Berry, who missed most of last season with a mysterious foot injury. Berry carries a massive salary-cap hit, but the Chiefs missed out on Landon Collins in free agency and appear content to keep him on the roster.

If he’s healthy, Berry and Mathieu would form one of the AFC’s best safety duos.

Anything would be an upgrade on last season, when the Chiefs allowed a league-worst 425.6 yards and 35.3 points per game. The defense ultimately let down Kansas City when it mattered most, failing to get off the field in overtime in an AFC title game loss to the New England Patriots.

Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was fired within days, the Chiefs quickly hired Spagnuolo, and now they are beginning to piece together what they hope is a vastly improved unit before next season.

“One great thing about Steve is he is going to put players in positions to make plays and I don’t think he is going to be pigeonholed into any one idea or concept,” Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said earlier this month. “We have a great coaching staff. We certainly have some talent on our roster now and hopefully we will add some more here soon.”

Cheap Authentic 49ers QB Nick Mullens Jersey Free Shippnig

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — In the hours before making his NFL debut, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens said he got a good night of rest.

“I slept good except I woke up about every hour,” Mullens said, laughing. “But those hours were great. I slept pretty good.”

If that qualifies as a good night of sleep, Mullens had to feel as if he were living out a dream Thursday night against the Oakland Raiders.

Mullens, a 2017 undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss, began the day by receiving a good luck text from fellow Golden Eagle Brett Favre. He ended by receiving a congratulatory call from Favre and approximately 600 congratulatory text messages from other friends and family.

T.O. gets Hall ring; ‘no regrets’ skipping induction
Terrell Owens was presented his Hall of Fame ring during halftime of Thursday night’s 49ers-Raiders game and stood by his decision to skip the induction ceremony in Canton earlier this year.

In between, Mullens put together one of the greatest statistical performances by a quarterback making his debut in NFL history and led the 49ers to a convincing 34-3 victory against the Raiders.

Mullens, who replaced an injured C.J. Beathard as starter, was unfazed by his prime-time debut, calmly directing the Niners to touchdowns on the first two drives of his young career and going on to post the best passer rating by a quarterback in his first start since the merger in 1970.

“You never know until you see someone,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. “He didn’t surprise us in terms of, the game’s not too big for Nick. He’s very poised. He is always locked in. The guys, they respect him. He earned a lot of respect in the preseason, them watching him play. Both years, last year and this year. The way he handles himself in practice each week. He didn’t really know for sure whether he was going to start today, until today, and just the way he handled the two days of long walk-throughs and stuff.

“He’s a machine in there and I was happy for him.”

With Mullens at the helm, the 49ers blew out the Raiders in what was the final “Battle of the Bay” before the Raiders relocate to Las Vegas.

By the time Mullens’ first regular-season playing experience was done, he was 16-of-22 for 262 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 151.9.

With each completed pass, Mullens seemed to reach another historic benchmark.

• Mullens’ passer rating of 151.9 was the best by a quarterback making his debut with at least 20 attempts since 1970.

• That passer rating was the highest by a 49er since Alex Smith had a rating of 157.1 on Oct. 29, 2012.

• Mullens joined Marc Bulger, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Marcus Mariota as the only players over the past 25 seasons to throw for three or more touchdowns in their first game, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

• Mullens is the first player since Carson Wentz to throw for a touchdown in his first career game on the team’s opening drive, and one of four to do it in the past 15 seasons, along with Wentz, Mariota and Matt Ryan.

• Mullens joined Fran Tarkenton (1961) and Jim Kelly (1986) as the only quarterbacks to throw for 250-plus yards, three-plus touchdowns and no interceptions in an NFL debut since 1950.

• Mullens is the first player in 49ers history to throw for three touchdowns in his first game with the team, according to Elias Sport Bureau.

• The last time a 49ers quarterback threw two touchdown passes on the first two drives of a game was Colin Kaepernick in Week 4 of 2016. The last time the Niners scored a touchdown on their first two drives of a game was Week 14 of 2016.

Things went so well for Mullens on Thursday night that his previously unverified Twitter account was granted a blue check mark — during the game.

All of that added up to the Niners’ second win of the season in one of the biggest blowouts by a team with only one victory this late in the season in the Super Bowl era. The Niners’ 31-point margin of victory is the second largest in that category.

The 49ers signed Mullens in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss, where he was the most prolific quarterback in school history, surpassing Favre along the way and ultimately shattering Titans quarterback Austin Davis’ records.

Before Thursday’s game, Favre tweeted good luck to Mullens, which might have helped his case for verification, and sent a text message to Mullens that said, “No pressure, just be yourself.”

Best of luck to my fellow @USMGoldenEagles alum and QB @NickMullens tonight for the @49ers! #SMTTT

— Brett Favre (@BrettFavre) November 1, 2018
Immediately after the game, Favre called Mullens.

“It was pretty cool, definitely an honor,” Mullens said. “It’s cool to see Southern Miss alumni stay in tune with the program and support each other. Definitely appreciative of that and definitely have the most respect for Brett. He just told me how proud of me he was.”

In the days leading up to Thursday’s game, Mullens prepared as though he would start, but the Niners held nothing but walk-throughs because of the short turnaround from Sunday’s loss to Arizona.

With Beathard attempting to recover from his injury, the Niners weren’t even sure who would start until things started trending in Mullens’ direction Wednesday night. Shanahan informed Mullens of that decision but still put Beathard’s injured right wrist and thumb through a pregame test Thursday to determine if he’d be available to back up Mullens.

All the while, Mullens was doing what his teammates say he always does, which is relentlessly prepare as if he’s going to play. Mullens has earned a reputation for his dedication to the game, including an at-home ritual in which he downloads crowd noise, plays it as loud as he can in his headphones and practices calling out plays amid the ruckus.

“That was the best thing I’ve seen so far,” tight end George Kittle said. “That’s what he does. So he gets that, I know Coach Shanahan will record the calls for him and he will re-listen to them and he’ll re-call them out. I’m pretty sure last year he was a guy who would take the script after the game and he’d go out on the field and run through the plays by himself. That’s just Nick Mullens in a nutshell.”

Cornerback Richard Sherman even ceded pregame speech duties to Mullens before his first start. Like everything else Mullens did Thursday night, that even got rave reviews.

“He did phenomenal,” Sherman said. “That’s what the team needed. In a situation like this, prime time, Thursday night, this guy’s first start, the team needs to hear from him. He’s going to lead us out there today. He’s going to be the guy who gets us this win and he did everything right today. This is Nick Mullens’ day today.”

The 49ers don’t play again until Nov. 12 on Monday Night Football against the Giants. Beathard should have plenty of time to recover by then. The question now is whether Mullens will get a chance at an encore performance of Nick at Night, something Shanahan wasn’t immediately ready to answer after the game.

“We’ll consider it,” Shanahan said. “Definitely not thinking about that right now, but our whole team played very well. Nick definitely did. … It was a very good all-around win. I was real happy for our guys. We’ve been through a lot here and we’re not done. We’re trying to get our way out of this. It’s good to get a win today and hopefully it can lead to some others.”
