Get all of the latest San Francisco 49ers rumors surrounding linebacker Reuben Foster’s arrest and the possible punishment, the possibility of signing former Oakland Raiders cornerback David Amerson and center Daniel Kilgore’s 3-year extension. Plus, host Cam Rogers discusses a new coaching hire, how linebacker Derrick Johnson could fit into the 49ers’ defense and a recently revealed detail about the Jimmy Garoppolo trade.
One of the top stories regarding the 49ers centers on the Reuben Foster investigation. Foster was recently arrested on charges of domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon. Foster was booked at Santa Clara County Main Jail. Reports suggest John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have been in multiple talks with the 2017 first round pick. The investigation is ongoing, but Foster has been cooperative.
Meanwhile, Daniel Kilgore's 3-year extension (worth up to $12 million) brings continuity to the center position for the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo had great chemistry with Kilgore when they played in 2017. Pro Football Focus graded Kilgore as a top 10 center in the final five games of the season - also the same games Garoppolo played quarterback. With uncertainty surrounding free agent guard Brandon Fusco, the 49ers made a stabilizing move to resign Kilgore.
The report with David Amerson comes as he's actively visiting NFL teams. He met with the Chicago Bears last week and the Houston Texans this week. He has been visiting other teams this week as well. The Raiders recently cut the 6'1" corner following an injury-riddled 2017.
