San Fran surprise coming Monday

49ers Getty Images

At a time when the 49ers are trying to shoot down rumors regarding a possible trade of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the 49ers soon will have another significant issue to deal with.

Some very surprising news related to the 49ers is coming, likely later today, regarding a key player on the team who won’t be on the team in 2015.  A formal announcement is expected on Tuesday.

That’s all we can say for now.  But when it happens, you’ll be shocked — even though you’re now duly braced to be shocked.

Meanwhile, feel free to make a guess in the comments.  Winner gets a free one-year subscription to PFT.

    Pretty clear it’s Aldon Smith guys.

    New “no nonsense” coach trying to make the players respect his authorit-ay! (Cartman voice)

  24. summitmech says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    I wasn’t aware there was anyone on the 49ers I cared enough about to care if they leave.

  25. stealthjunk says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    It’s now big news when you cut a mediocre receiver like Crabtree? Shhh don’t tell Sherman.

  26. demolition510 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    That chick in payroll retiring?

  27. mikeschuler22 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

  28. scothawk says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    The words “key player” basically removes all rostered personnel from suspicion.

  29. Jason Culley says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    Frank Gore leaving?

  30. 4949centennial says: Mar 9, 2015 9:17 AM

    Nobody will be shocked about anything at this point of time.

    Justin Smith Retiring. This is a pathetic display of journalism. Like a little kid say “I have a surprise for you but I can’t tell you what it is”. smh

  41. heathn09 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:19 AM

  46. wallyspo says: Mar 9, 2015 9:19 AM

    its gotta be willis, and I hope to god he comes to the bears

  47. joetoronto says: Mar 9, 2015 9:19 AM

    Well we know it’s not Gore. Patrick Willis? Nothing is that shocking in the NFL, he would be the most surprising though.

  48. evanbrockwalter says: Mar 9, 2015 9:19 AM

    JUSTIN SMITH RETIRES!!!! Duh people.

  52. mysticbrownie says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Kaepernick traded to browns for a 2nd rounder….

  53. mtminadeo says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    The only players that would shock me would be Kapernick or Willis.

  54. lionslifer78 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Justin Smith retiring or cut?

  55. dcee101 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Stephen Ross is going to pick up the entire team in Free Agency.

  56. raiderrob21 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Vernon Davis

  57. RegisHawk says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    49ers trade Kaepernik! Haha! Fooled you with our fake story that we weren’t gonna trade him!!

  58. silverhat78 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Willis, Davis or Aldon Smith most likely. I cannot see them trading away Kapernick.

  59. Mr. Wright 212 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    It’s Aldon.

  60. c09f says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Patrick Willis. This is an easy call.

  61. sandyf79705 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Let’s see, Gore is signing with Philly, Crabtree only 50-50 to come back, and no one else that remotely gives you the shock value except for Vernon Davis. So the the 9ers swapping TEs, letting Davis go and signing Jordan Cameron.

  62. crabwasheld says: Mar 9, 2015 9:20 AM

    Hopefully they are cutting Vernon Davis. He sucks

  63. pastabelly says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    I would have said Kaepernick to the Jets, but since this involves another player, I’ll guess that the player is Vernon Davis since he held out last season.

  64. hahaicansezbelicheat says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    Aldon Smith retiring to get his Master’s in nuclear physics.

  65. vpettijohnjr says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    Vernon Davis to the London Sillynannies for a case of grey pupon.

  66. kfoyo808 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    as an Eagles fan, I don’t think I would mind Kaep. Especially if doesn’t cost them 19 1st round picks like it would to go up and get Mariota. I’m all for Mariota – but team does have a pretty decent amount of holes…WR, S, CB (even w/ Maxwell)

  67. roddoliver says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    Aldon Smith traded.

  68. luther6 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    Kaepoernick to Philly.

  69. antichargers says: Mar 9, 2015 9:21 AM

    colin kapernick gone to jets for 1st round pick

  70. ninerhomer says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Aldon Smith…..he was involved in the last Ray McDonald fiasco.

  71. mdd913 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Patrick Willis

  72. patriots123456 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Kap to Buffalo

  73. luther6 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Kaepernick to the Eagles. Foles to 49ers. Some picks involved.

  74. kingthraxy says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Patrick Willis is getting released.

  75. nevyn49 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    It pretty much has to be Patrick Willis.

    Aldon Smith would not be shocking. Kaepernick already in rumors. O-line probably not well known enough to be shocking. Davis would not be shocking after his year.

    The corners are FAs anyway. Justin Smith already expected to retire. That basically leaves Willis, Bowman, and Eric Reid, and Reid probably isn’t well known enough.

  76. c09f says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Aldon Smith just restructured. Balke just announced support for CK7. Crab is already expected to leave. Justin Smith wouldnt warrant this big of a tease. Gore already gone. Only options left are Bowman or Willis.

    Gotta be Willis.

  77. shirkophobe says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Crabtree to Seattle

  78. jimmyrussell06 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:22 AM

    Crabtree along smith or patrick Willis gone

  79. chunkydonkey says: Mar 9, 2015 9:23 AM

    Kaepernick for Cutler trade?

  80. andyreidsskinnyjeans says: Mar 9, 2015 9:23 AM

    I’m sure it involves chip jelly

  81. ilovefoolsball says: Mar 9, 2015 9:24 AM

    Besides Rex Ryan who would take Kaepernick? University of Michigan?
    Can he go back to colleg?

    +++

    This is the smartest man in the room, and I’m not being sarcastic.

    Been a 49er fan for 30-plus years and I have never been in this frame of mind regarding this franchise. It’s like ownership got its stadium and now is having a complete total fire sale.

    There is literally NO ONE — Kaepernick, Willis, Bowman included — that PFT could announce isn’t coming back that would surprise me at this point… except Trent Baalke, because apparently he’s the mercenary out doing York’s dirty work.

    This should have been a franchise that was preparing to do everything in its power to get to a Super Bowl in its own building. Instead, this is the darkest day to be a 49er fan since the mid 2000s. Seriously, we can sit here and slam Seattle fans, or anything else, but if there is any optimism at all surrounding this franchise, I don’t see it, and I don’t see any reason for it.

    I just simply don’t understand why these moves are being made.

  83. gorilladunk says: Mar 9, 2015 9:24 AM

    Let me guess…it’s the Dez Bryant “five times worse than Ray Rice” video.

  84. chargertab says: Mar 9, 2015 9:24 AM

    Aldon Smith to Seattle.

  85. Stiller43 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    I thought it was widely know that Willis and Bowman wouldn’t be back…is it a surprise now?

  86. jamaltimore says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    Torrey Smith left charm city to go to this dysfunctional franchise. Enjoy the money loser.

  87. daaabears says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    Can I get a refund for the one year subscription if I win?

  88. raiderrob21 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    Theyre cutting Jerome Simpson because they made a mistake and thought they were signing O.J. Simpson

  89. ninefingers9 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    My guess is that the Packers are gonna choke again this year!

  90. warwicklionsfan says: Mar 9, 2015 9:25 AM

    Frank Gore gone?

  91. bigdog54c says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    Frank Gore to the eagles!!

  92. joetoronto says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    York will announce that the 49ers are having an open to all “Dance Off”.

    It’ll be held in Santa Clara and all participants are encouraged to dance with their hands over their heads.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  93. bayareasportspost says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    Justin Smith

  94. dartwick says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    Justin Smith

  95. ashram says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    A year ago, who could have foreseen the decline of the 49ers? They appeared to have a deep roster that would compete for many championships. How quickly the mighty have returned to mediocrity.

  96. izzyb08 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:26 AM

    Patrick Willis #52

  97. theanalyticalkid says: Mar 9, 2015 9:27 AM

    LOL

    The 49ers don’t exactly have many “key players” young enough to be shocking if they left. The only one that remotely qualifies is Willis. Nothing else would be a shock. Even that only partially qualifies because he’s be 30 and coming off injury.

    Funny comments.

  98. coltzfan166 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:27 AM

    It’s Frank Gore guys

  99. tangysizzl says: Mar 9, 2015 9:27 AM

    One of the ILBs probably, hard to keep a young guy like Chris Borland on the bench.

  100. i, flounder says: Mar 9, 2015 9:27 AM

    vernon davis to the bills.

  101. tndiver says: Mar 9, 2015 9:27 AM

    I think I heard Frank Gore to Philly

  102. unclemoobaa1911 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:28 AM

  103. ketchupaholic says: Mar 9, 2015 9:28 AM

    Frank Gore Traded to Minnesota for Adrian Peterson.

  104. chargertab says: Mar 9, 2015 9:28 AM

    Kaepernick to the Bears!?!

  105. juliojones123 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:29 AM

    My guess is frank gore is being traded

  106. powayslugger says: Mar 9, 2015 9:29 AM

    Kapernick traded to the Michigan Wolverines.

  107. adlag22 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:29 AM

    49ers are gonna lose the staple of their offense the past 10 years. Frank Gore is gone. New RB regime to begin.

  108. ninefingers9 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:30 AM

    Nobody has it better… apparently!

  109. chris6523 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:30 AM

    I will be disappointed if the news is Crabtree, Bowman, (Vernon) Davis, Gore, Brooks, (Aldon) Smith, or Kaepernick. Kaepernick would have been a surprise, but was already reported before this story. Any of the others listed shouldn’t be a surprise.

    I’m gonna go with Justin Smith.

  110. thetruthcampaign says: Mar 9, 2015 9:30 AM

    Aldon Smith is not a shock.

  111. whatnojets says: Mar 9, 2015 9:30 AM

    Kaepernick traded to Buffalo, Crabtree traded to New York Jets

  112. cmurr49 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:30 AM

    Jim Harbaugh? That would be crazy though to get rid of a coach with that good a record though.

  113. jacobslatter says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    Tom Rathman redux?

  114. omarvelous511 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    Patrick Willis + 3rd round pick for ADRIAN PETERSON!!!

  115. raiderufan says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    Trade Willis to Oakland!

  116. baltimorebirds1012 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    The legend Phil Dawson announces retirement!
    Just thought I would go head and try to think outside the box here.

  117. buddysguys says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    Justin Smith is retiring, i think this site hinted at it last week.

  118. sn19 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:31 AM

    Steve Young returning?

  119. frankbob21 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:32 AM

    Bruce Miller for DM

  120. sidepull says: Mar 9, 2015 9:32 AM

    Willis. Gootta be. Never quite seen a story like this..we know who it is but we are not going tell you. Niners fans gotta be somewhat anxious you would think.

  121. zoxitic says: Mar 9, 2015 9:32 AM

    Oh my god……Gabbert?

    Noooooooooooooooo!

  122. asimonetti88 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:32 AM

    Please don’t call it San Fran. It’s San Francisco, SF, or the City, nothing else.

  123. dadsource says: Mar 9, 2015 9:32 AM

    Navarro? Retires due to injury.

  124. lionslifer78 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:34 AM

    Willis cut, now that would be shocking

  125. zoxitic says: Mar 9, 2015 9:34 AM

    Who has dismantled a championship team faster than us?

    Nooooobody.

    (Ok, the Texans, but noooooobody else)

  126. sidepull says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    When I re read the article it sounds like somebody is retiring or quitting rather than a trade, cut or suspension.

  127. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    Gore

  128. zotter87 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    Patrick Willis? Come on, you guys are too easy.

    Justin Smith will announce his retirement.

  129. snackswell37 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    They are signing Aaron Hernandez?!

  130. allseeingone says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    Kap to the Eagles for their #1 pick +….

  131. silvercutlery says: Mar 9, 2015 9:35 AM

    It won’t be Frank Gore or Crabtree.

    They are UFAs. Them leaving is not a ‘shock’.

    Obviously it’s someone who hasn’t been discussed as a poss. to leave.

  132. southpaw2k says: Mar 9, 2015 9:36 AM

    Jim Harbaugh has to be feeling better and better about being outta San Fran with every passing day at this rate. It’s amazing to see how quickly the 49ers have turned into a sinking ship.

  133. ccsint says: Mar 9, 2015 9:36 AM

    Vernon Davis is traded.

  134. melancer46 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:37 AM

    My guess is that it’s Vernon Davis. High cap hit and he’s been rumored to be in some trade talks.

    Dark horse candidate would be Bowman, but I definitely think it’s Vernon.

  135. knicksfan84 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:37 AM

    TE Vernon Davis gets traded. I would even suspect he gets traded to Denver to replace Julian Thomas.

  136. cantonbound13 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:37 AM

    Kapernick traded for Manziel

  137. beastmode5150 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:41 AM

    They are changing their name to the San Pedro forty two-ers?

  138. flyers2006 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:42 AM

    Yo willis is going!!!!!!Oouuttaa there!!

  139. genericcommenter says: Mar 9, 2015 9:43 AM

    If it’s one of the guys who has already been suspended and/or in trouble with the law, that won’t exactly be a “big surprise.”

  140. finsfaninsc says: Mar 9, 2015 9:43 AM

    Patrick Willis to the Dolphins? Trading either Ellerbe (who has not been officially released) or Starks. Plus Draft picks.

    Stephen Ross wants to make a splash and we missed out on David Harris with the Jets. We need a sure fire MLB.

    Gore has already left and Crabtree is a free agent. Vernon Davis is not that big a deal, so if it is not Willis, then Aldon Smith or Kaepernick.

  141. cb2gbequalssb says: Mar 9, 2015 9:43 AM

    Kapernick traded to DA bears lmao

  142. jetsfmleveryday says: Mar 9, 2015 9:43 AM

    Steve Young to Jerry Rice?

  143. grruffgrruff says: Mar 9, 2015 9:43 AM

    Iupati to Buffalo

  144. jpaq68 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    The biggest shock would be to announce they’re keeping Blaine Gabbert.

  145. joemktg says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    Based on recent events, no one should be shocked by anything.

  146. AB in DC says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    Tuesday = first official day of free agency. Hmm…it has to be a trade, right? If it were just someone retiring or getting cut, they wouldn’t need to wait until tomorrow.

  147. umass242424 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    Jonathan Martin will be released!

  148. thetruthcampaign says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    The only surprising news, at this point, for the 49ers regarding losing or trading someone would be Kaepernick.

  149. enasty610 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

    Kaep to the Eagles for Foles and a swap of draft picks

  150. whatnojets says: Mar 9, 2015 9:45 AM

  152. vikingsyang94 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:46 AM

    Patrick Willis is traded.

  153. keithdylan says: Mar 9, 2015 9:46 AM

    Let me guess, they have the Dez video?

  154. whatnojets says: Mar 9, 2015 9:47 AM

    Entire front office traded to The Raiders for the 2035 8th round draft pick!!

  155. patriotsdefense says: Mar 9, 2015 9:47 AM

    Patrick Wilis? No way. I bet the announcment is the team is leaving Santa Clara and movin back to San Fran.

  156. jetfan74 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:47 AM

    I vote Bowman, but where he’s going is beyond me.

  157. youreallmorons says: Mar 9, 2015 9:48 AM

    Cant wait to see what this news will be. Clearly you guys are trying to make yourselves relevant in the offseason when every other site breaks the news and you guys just piggy back their info. Lets see what will “shock” me and will give credit if its due

  158. afwhigs says: Mar 9, 2015 9:48 AM

    SF trades Kaepernick to Miami for Suh, and they re-do his new deal to 6 years, $700 million, with $600 million guaranteed.

  159. russh4949 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:49 AM

    Justin Smith retiring

  160. daleproxjr says: Mar 9, 2015 9:49 AM

    I would say Willis and Davis to the Broncos for a 3rd and 6th round pick with a little cash thrown in. Salary dump situation.

  161. johnnyhose says: Mar 9, 2015 9:50 AM

    Andy Lee !

  162. kissmysandwich says: Mar 9, 2015 9:50 AM

    It’s not Crabtree….he’s a free agent. Vernon Davis is getting cut.

  163. dthomas58 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:50 AM

    Easy, cutting Aldon Smith.

  164. chunkydonkey says: Mar 9, 2015 9:51 AM

    Carlos Hyde traded

  165. cribbage12 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:51 AM

    Chris Borland will be traded to GB for a first round pick.

  166. taterjas says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    Justin Smith retiring
    Kaepernick traded
    lb Willis traded
    I think with the emergence of Borland I will go with Willis traded. They said other than Kaep so Im taking him off, Smith was my 1st guess but he has been thinking about retiring so no surprise there, and I think if lb Smith was busted for something again, it would be leaked by now. My guess is Willis traded.

  167. davetrembley says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    Bowman to Minnesota

  168. whatnojets says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    Mike Iupati already agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills. Was already posted and now removed from internet

  169. realfootballfan says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    So who’s Aldon Smith playing for next season?

  170. clipper522 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    New long snapper.

  171. eaglesfan8477 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    hmmm how about a reverse look of not who is leaving but who will be a 49er.
    foles to san fran “hello to my new home”

  172. warwicklionsfan says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    Frank Gore?

  173. wawa33 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:52 AM

    It has to be Colin Kapernick.

  174. nevyn49 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:53 AM

    I’m going to say its Willis, and its probably a trade.

    I mean, it could be a straight release to get the room to sign Smith, and they waited this long because they didn’t know if he’d come, but I doubt it.

    Best bets to WANT to trade for him would be

    Chicago (need, old niners DC), Washington (need, GM who drafted Willis), Tampa, Green Bay, and Buffalo (Alonso played a different spot, but they could shuffle, have cap room and Ryan loves D)

    Of those there aren’t many player fits, so I’d guess its just for picks or for a pick and a maybe backup QB (Cousins, Glennon). Green bay could maybe float one of their corners.

  175. 9erfanfromwoodstock says: Mar 9, 2015 9:53 AM

    Willis to Buffalo for 1st this year.

  178. breesynbigeasy says: Mar 9, 2015 9:54 AM

    Willis will be playing in The Big Easy next year. Loomis is looking for a ILB while he tries to trade ours. In the end, Willis will get an extension that lowers his 2015 cap number and he’ll help bring another Lombardi to Bourbon Street ala Vilma. Bookmark this.

  179. sjones78999 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:54 AM

    Eric Reid traded to Seattle

  180. nevyn49 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:54 AM

    But for all those talking about the emergence of Borland, I would not assume he starts even if Willis is gone. Wilhoite was higher on the depth chart last year, played all games and played them well. Borland would STILL be fighting for playing time.

  181. kimbo71006 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:54 AM

    For all of you guessing Aldon Smith, do you even pay attention to the news?

    He accepted a revised deal with a pay cut…uh, two days ago.

    Get on the ball people, I knew this and I’m a woman…

  182. mdb3215 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:54 AM

  184. klutch14u says: Mar 9, 2015 9:55 AM

    Vinny Testaverde is coming out of retirement to start for the 9’ers

  185. bullcharger says: Mar 9, 2015 9:55 AM

    Aldon Smith – nothing would be shocking.

    Justin Smith – He already said he might not play. Not shocking.

    Kaepernick – team is denying he will leave. Should be no change there.

    Bowman – Did come off a serious injury. A move there wouldn’t be that shocking, but it’s possible it’s him.

    Crabtree – He’s not really expected to stay in SF anyway. Not too shocking.

    Willis… That would be shocking.

  186. brewpack42 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:55 AM

    If you look at the picture it is Aldon Smith’s helmet. So my guess i Aldon Smith is gone

  187. bert1913 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:56 AM

    Gore to dolphins

  188. xophr says: Mar 9, 2015 9:56 AM

    I know it said player, but I’m still hoping it’s York announcing his resignation.

  189. scoob766 says: Mar 9, 2015 9:57 AM

    Obviously Justin smith retiring, the writing was on the wall with the dockett signing

  190. sidepull says: Mar 9, 2015 9:57 AM

    And people, Crabtree, Gore and Iupati are all free agents, so if they sign elsewhere it’s really not a big story

  207. first2five says: Mar 9, 2015 10:04 AM

    Let’s ask ourselves why florio wouldn’t name the player? He’s usually very quick to grab for attention. I think it is probably because he has no idea which player it is, but wanted to take credit for it without actually breaking the true story. Conveniently set the stage to be right no matter what. Great work florio. Well done. You broke the internet.

  210. croteus says: Mar 9, 2015 10:05 AM

    Stevie Johnson wouldn’t be a surprise, and Vernon Davis should have to pay for the 49ers based on how he played last year. Patrick Willis the only person left that it would make financial sense to cut.

  211. hippieway says: Mar 9, 2015 10:06 AM

    Gore for Chris Johnson

  212. mezter says: Mar 9, 2015 10:06 AM

    Frank Gore is going to the Colts.

  220. jcthree3303 says: Mar 9, 2015 10:12 AM

    Ok he said a significant issue to deal with therefore it can’t be a trade cause that’s something they caused themselves. So my guess its a drug suspension of some sort and if its for the whole year it would have to be someone who has gotten in trouble before and already served a suspension. So my guess is that Aldon Smith has been busted for PED’s and will be suspended for the 2015-2016 season. That’s my guess.

  221. millionz4184 says: Mar 9, 2015 10:13 AM

    Sorry man, you can’t be the only one with a scoop as big as you say. The 49ers FO is a complete sieve, if there’s a leak, everybody knows.

    So, who is the big name…

    Vernon Davis?
    Aldon Smith?
    Patrick Willis?

    Really, losing any of these guys wouldn’t be a shock, unless we get nothing for them, then I would be shocked, and pissed.

    I think it’s obvious that Stevie Johnson will be cut in order to make room for Torrey Smith. All of you that think Aldon Smith or Patrick Willis are gone are ridiculous. Aldon just restructured and Willis isn’t going anywhere. Either this or possibly Justin Smith not coming back. I really hope he comes back!

  264. jchaisson says: Mar 9, 2015 10:32 AM

    Niners are going to trade Keap and their 1st rounder for Peyton Manning.
    The only shocking story would be trading the QB you just gave a “Large” contract too. Or as a comment mentioned above 49ers moves to a different city.

  265. tommyribs says: Mar 9, 2015 10:34 AM

    I heard they may make a coaching change and Harbaugh may not be back.

    So funny to read all the hate on here by fans of other teams just throwing garbage at a random player be it Bowman or Kap or Aldon without know anything besides being blinded by their irrational hatered of the 49ers. Patrick Willis is retiring, this can NOT be blamed on the front office thats a decision Willis made on his own

    Not looking forward to this 49ers season at all, wont recognize these players and new coaching staff and wont like the losing that was done from 2004-2010.

  302. awhartstl says: Mar 9, 2015 10:48 AM

    For some reason I think it’s Joe Staley. Maybe he wants out of his contract or something.

  320. harbs5 says: Mar 9, 2015 11:07 AM

    Willis will not be on the team. 49ers in freefall.

  321. nflpoker says: Mar 9, 2015 11:09 AM

    SF is still trying to determine if they a key player to start with.

  322. bassplucker says: Mar 9, 2015 11:12 AM

    Holy offseason implosion, Batman.

  324. leronford says: Mar 9, 2015 11:15 AM

    It’s either Bowman or Justin Smith.

  325. pm247 says: Mar 9, 2015 11:26 AM

    We already know it’s Willis early retirement…but, how about Crabtree to sign with Seattle🙂

  326. harbs5 says: Mar 9, 2015 11:30 AM

    Willis retiring. 49ers in free fall mode.

  327. Iknowitall says: Mar 9, 2015 11:31 AM

    Patrick Willis and J. Smith to retire.
    Willis because of health issues??????

  328. harbaughsohard49er says: Mar 9, 2015 11:41 AM

    Its sad to see P Willy go, must be the toe, but Chris Borland is a beast and if he improves just a little he can be all pro material. Bowman had over a year now of rehab, Aaron Lynch, a motivated Aldon, Dockett,Healthy Dorsey,Tank Carradine,Ian Williams, Quinton Dial,Eric Reid,Antoine Bethea etc, Anyone who thinks Niners will stink this year is reall fooling themselves. We will sign Torrey Smith tomorrow which frees up our first rd pick to be a bad azz defensive tackle or end to replace Justin. O line will be healthy and Kap will be running the read option, with Carlos Hyde and a 2nd round pick like Duke johnson or Abdullah.
    So haters keep hatin, Niner faithful, this is when u have to just have faith and believe. And again,look at the players i mentioned above, we still have a nice roster. It aint over!

  329. gianthater says: Mar 9, 2015 11:44 AM

    Kaepernick going to Bills!!! Just an off the wall guess which I don’t believe myself, but in this sometimes crazy world of the NFL, ya never know???

  330. 2ruefan says: Mar 9, 2015 11:53 AM

    Patrick Willis, Kaepernick, 1st and 2nd Round Picks in 2015 and 1st Round in 2016 for Adrian Peterson.

    LOL….

  331. realdealsteel says: Mar 9, 2015 11:54 AM

    It’s not really a Surprise..

    It’s just that the 49ers organazation is going back to it’s ankle grabbing ways and securing the 1st pick in next year’s draft. They will lock up a 2-12 record.

  332. pm247 says: Mar 9, 2015 11:54 AM

    Disappointed not to see San Fran at least matching to keep Gore in San Fran. He wants to play here and the fans want to see him here. Management talks about winning with class but not retaining your workhorse of the last decade when he’s obviously wanting to return is class-less. Whether it was a smart move, or not, Seattle showed Lynch the money. It’s unlikely that he’s going to be as productive over the next 2 years as he’s been however, he’s the heart of that team (just like Gore has been for SanFran)…If you let another team rip the heart out of your team, that’s bad management. We could have had Gore signed for another 2 years, too, if we’d simply talked with him and put up a respectable offer. He didn’t want to hit free-agency and would have signed for less than what he’s going to get in Free Agency if we’d had a brain and come up with a contract before this point.

  333. In Teddy We Trust says: Mar 9, 2015 12:02 PM

    Wow, you know it has to be big to knock the Matt Cassel trade off the top of the most commented list.

  343. johnniemayes says: Mar 9, 2015 2:19 PM

    I concluded after that disaster of a press conference they called the new head coach that this team will return to the basement for many more years to come. We’ll leave the light on for you.

  344. tootitan says: Mar 9, 2015 3:22 PM

    Why is this “all we can say for now?” What is holding you back? Has the fat brown envelope envelope full of cash not arrived yet? Okay, I’m more than half-joking. Regardless, how about an answer? Why?

  345. will2p0wer says: Mar 9, 2015 3:24 PM

    We already know.. Willis is retiring. I don’t blame him for bailing on the sinking ship. Maybe he’ll come back and play for another better team later in the season.

  346. petunializlizerbug says: Mar 9, 2015 3:35 PM
