Fresh off President’s Day weekend, Goal Posts has compiled the top 49ers headlines if you happened to get away for the weekend.
There’s also a 49ers must-watch DVR-alert. More on that after the jump.
Donte Whitner will join the set of NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” on Tuesday. The opinionated safety will discuss his first season with the San Francisco 49ers as well as look forward to the upcoming 2012 season. The show which airs week nights at 4 p.m. PT will also be replayed later in the evening. Set your DVRs if unable to watch the first airing, as Whitner always offers strong insight on the game.
Several former 49ers attended the funeral of Freddie Solomon over the weekend in Tampa. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Eddie DeBartolo Jr., Roger Craig, Dwight Clark and Eric Wright were some of the 49ers in attendance to pay tribute to “Fast Freddie.” The Tampa Times offers a recap of the day as well as a photo gallery from the funeral service.
With 32 NFL teams allowed to start playing tag (applying franchise tags on pending free agents), Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee wonders how hard the 49ers would pursue pending restricted free agents, chief among them, Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Mike Wallace. If the Steelers apply a first-round tender on Wallace, any team that signs the restricted free agent would have to give up a first-round pick as compensation to acquire the receiver who has 24 touchdown catches in three NFL seasons. Barrows also evaluated candidates for the 49ers’ own franchise tag.
