Morning Tailgate: Offseason Work

Posted by Alex Espinoza on February 19, 2013 – 10:40 AM

Oscars? Nope. Grammys? Nope. Colin Kaepernick would rather be in Atlanta, working out with his teammates.

Just days after leading the 49ers to the Super Bowl XLVII, Kaepernick was back at work at CES Performance, his home away from home during the offseason. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee wrote about Kaepernick’s offseason regimen and how he’s joined by 49ers receivers Ricardo Lockette and Chad Hall.

“Rather than pressing the flesh with Anne Hathaway and Denzel Washington on the red carpet in Hollywood, Kaepernick is busting his tail alongside little-known college players on the green grass at CES Performance, a training facility in Atlanta,” Barrows wrote. “That’s where Kaepernick got ready for the 2011 draft. And it’s where he figured he’d find training partners who are as hungry as him.”

The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate spotlights Aldon Smith’s mixed-martial arts offseason training, the upcoming combine and more.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle also noted Kaepernick’s quick return to offseason work.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group caught up with Smith as he worked out at a local MMA gym.

Nate Stuhlbarg of CSNBayArea.com spoke to NBA All-Stars Kevin Durant and James Harden about rooting for the 49ers.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com previewed the NFL Scouting Combine from an NFC West perspective.

Tom Fitzgerald of the San Francisco Chronicle looked back at the life of the late, former 49ers executive Lou Spadia.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com looked at the 49ers secondary.

Barrows and Inman analyzed the 49ers roster as the franchise tag period begins.

Sando examined the importance of 49ers free agent tight end Delanie Walker.



Condolences to the Spadia family for their loss.

    Kaepernick sucks. If the 9ers were smart they would get rid of him.

    only thing i worry about is over doing it…by working out early means he is using that arm alot…it’s a long season…remember he didn’t play all year…he has to add 8 more games this year..hope someone is montoring his workouts…don’t want to see him get run down end of season cuz he worked out to early..

    anyone know whats going on with manningham/williams? will they be ready for camp? i see niners drafting a rb in second/third rd….taylor from stanford…if those wr’s arn’t ready and don’t get a free agent wr they will pick a wr early also…jenkins didn’t cut it this year…

  20. By 49erdefense2012 on Feb 20, 2013 | Reply

    mfkram,according to conflicting reports,they both are well on their way to making a full recovery with williams being ahead of manningham,which is understandable because when you look at the two injuries as they happened you see williams and say,”wow,that tore his $hit?” and when you watch the manningham injury your like”wow,that tore his $hit !!”,,IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST

    49ERS offence should be really good with those two back in the line up and Kaepernick having a (full) training camp and preseason under his belt.Get the defense squared away and THE 49ERS will be good to go. I know this season just ended but I can hardly wait for next season. Unfinished business to take care of….THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS….

    thats right @tanglung, ur dead on, “UNFINISHED BUSINESS TO TAKE CARE OF”exact phrase, 5 yards away in getting 6, but i know we will get there some how…NO DOUBT…………………..
