QBs Kaepernick, Carr join Smith at 49ers workouts

May 28, 2011MAIOCCO ARCHIVE49ERS PAGE 49ERS VIDEOMatt MaioccoCSNBayArea.comAlex Smith finally has some quarterback company during the players-organized 49ers workouts in the South Bay.Rookie Colin Kaepernick and veteran David Carr joined Smith on the practice field this week during the 11th week of the owners-imposed NFL lockout. As for attribution, we'll cite the photo of the three quarterbacks that appeared in today's San Francisco Chronicle.RELATED: 49ers, free agent players work out in Bay Area
There is no evidence of the "preventative" surgical procedure that Kaepernick underwent shortly after the 49ers traded up to select him in the second round of the draft. Kaepernick wrote on Twitter that he moved to the Bay Area "for good" on Tuesday. We know Kaepernick will be competing for playing time when it's time to play football.We also know that Smith intends to re-sign with the 49ers after the lockout is lifted. It was coach Jim Harbaugh's "strong belief" that Smith will be back with the 49ers that prompted him to give Smith a copy of the 49ers' playbook when the lockout briefly lifted on April 29.Harbaugh has presented Smith with bouquets -- figuratively and literally. He has spoken very highly of Smith and expressed his desire for Smith to be back with the 49ers. Harbaugh also delivered flowers to the hospital when Smith's wife gave birth to the couple's first child.MAIOCCO: Smith proving 49ers' offseason leader
Carr's future with the 49ers, however, is uncertain. Carr was the No. 3 quarterback on the roster last season behind Alex Smith and Troy Smith, who started six games. The 49ers declined to present Troy Smith with a contract tender, a clear indication the club has no plan to retain him.And Harbaugh has not said a word about Carr since he was hired as 49ers coach in January. When asked about Carr, Harbaugh has essentially declined comment. Carr is the only 49ers quarterback under contract. His cap value for 2011 season is scheduled to be 2.375 million.

Report: 49ers receive permission from Broncos to interview O-line coach

Report: 49ers receive permission from Broncos to interview O-line coach

John Benton, who coached on the same staff during Kyle Shanahan’s four seasons with the Houston Texans, has reportedly received permission from the Denver Broncos to interview with the 49ers.

The Broncos hired Benton on Jan. 15 to work as the team’s assistant offensive line coach under line coach Jeff Davidson.

But Denver coach Vance Joseph and general manager John Elway provided Benton permission to interview with the 49ers, Denver’s 9News reported. The Sacramento Bee was first to report the 49ers were looking at Benton.

The offensive line coach is the last major position that remains vacant on Shanahan’s staff.

Benton worked last season as Jacksonville’s assistant offensive line coach. He worked the previous 13 seasons as offensive line coach with the St. Louis Rams (2003-05), Houston (2006-2013) and Miami (2014-15).

Shanahan’s first NFL coaching job was with Houston in 2006, when he coached wide receivers. Shanahan became the quarterbacks coach with the Texans in 2007 before spending the next two seasons as offensive coordinator under then-coach Gary Kubiak.

The 49ers announced nine additions to the coaching staff on Friday.

Also, the 49ers are expected to hire Daniel Bullocks as assistant defensive backs coach, according to The Sporting News. Bullocks worked in the same role with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. The Jaguars' linebackers coach last season, Robert Saleh, is the 49ers' new defensive coodinator. Bullocks appeared in 31 games in three NFL seasons with the Detroit Lions in 2006 and '08.
