Teammate says Blaine Gabbert is taking control of 49ers’ offense

Colin Kaepernick is throwing again in the 49ers’ offseason program, but that doesn’t mean he’s the guy running the show in the offense. Instead, it’s Blaine Gabbert, who usurped Kaepernick as the 49ers’ starting quarterback last season, who has taken charge. “He’s definitely taking control,” tight end Garrett Celek said of Gabbert, via CSNBayArea.com. “Whoever’s…

Manziel’s college coach sees lack of contact as “a little unnerving”

Some have suggested that quarterback Johnny Manziel’s best chance of getting back into the NFL would happen only if his former coach at Texas A&M, Kevin Sumlin, were to jump to the next level.

Vikings sign two more draft picks

The Vikings have also agreed to deals with two of his…

Reggie McKenzie: DeAndre Washington more than just a third-down back

Running back Latavius Murray ran for 1,066 yards last season and went to the Pro Bowl, so it’s fair to say that his first full year as the lead back in Oakland was a successful one. One thing that the Raiders would like to improve is keeping Murray’s production at a high level across the…

Colts offensive line “laying the foundation” for a better 2016

With Andrew Luck on the sideline and a streak without a 100-yard game from a running back at 50 and counting, there wasn’t much doubt about the Colts’ need to improve their offensive line play this offseason.
