No compensatory picks expected for 49ers

The 49ers currently own each of their seven draft picks and do not figure to gain any more selections through the NFL's compensatory system.Compensatory draft picks are awarded to teams that have net losses via free agency from the previous year. The 49ers had five losses and five gains. Therefore, the 49ers do not appear to be in line to be awarded any additional picks.Players who become free agents because they were released or not tendered do not count as part of the compensatory formula. That's why Nate Clements or David Carr do not count as losses, nor do Madieu Williams, Larry Grant and Blake Costanzo count as gains.The NFL typically announces compensatory picks in late-March.
The NFL draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 26 (first round); Friday, April 27 (second and third rounds); and Saturday, April 28 (fourth-seventh rounds).

49ers freeze ticket prices for 2017, 2018 seasons

The 49ers on Tuesday informed season ticket holders that ticket prices will not increase for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. 

"We are announcing that 49ers season ticket pricing will be frozen through the 2018 season," the team wrote in an email to its season ticket holder. "Invoices for your 2017 season tickets will be made available to view and pay online in the coming weeks, including the option to enroll in a multi-month payment plan."

"Thank you for your valued and continued support as a 49ers Season Ticket Member. We look forward to serving you this season!"

The 49ers will enter the 2017 season with a new general manager and head coach after firing both Trent Baalke and Chip Kelly following their 2-14 2016 season.

McDonough, Paton scheduled for second interviews for 49ers' GM job

McDonough, Paton scheduled for second interviews for 49ers' GM job

Arizona vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough and Minnesota assistant general manager George Paton are scheduled for second interviews for the 49ers’ general manager position, a league source confirmed to CSNBayArea.com.

The Atlanta Falcons have provided 49ers executives Jed York and Paraag Marathe time to meet with presumptive head coach Kyle Shanahan from Friday afternoon through all day Saturday. The Falcons are scheduled to travel on Sunday to Houston, site of Super Bowl 51. The interviews with McDonough and Paton are expected to be held on Saturday in Atlanta.

Shanahan, the Falcons’ offensive coordinator, is not allowed to be officially hired as 49ers coach until after the Falcons play in Super Bowl 51 against the New England Patriots. But Shanahan is expected to take part in the process Saturday in which the 49ers will arrive at a decision on their next general manager.

The 49ers announced the firings of coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke shortly after the team’s 2-14 season, which included a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak.

Paton originally interviewed with the 49ers on Jan. 6. He met with York and Marathe in Atlanta on the same day Shanahan took part in his first interview with the club. McDonough interviewed with the 49ers on Jan. 13 in Santa Clara.
