Maiocco: Panthers' generosity impacts Gore talks

Follow @MaioccoCSN
SANTA CLARA -- NFL contracts are a lot like the real-estate market. Teams and agents take a look at comparable players when determining another player's worth.Let's just say . . .Running Back A is 28-years-and-three-months old. He has led his team in rushing all six of his NFL seasons. On 1,371 career rushing attempts, he has gained 6,414 yards (4.7 average) and 35 touchdowns. He has caught 270 passes for 2,283 yards and nine touchdowns. In six years, he has missed 10 games, including five last season with a hairline fracture of his hip. He is 100-percent healthy.Running Back B is three weeks older than Running Back A. He has led his team in rushing once in five seasons. On 841 career rushing attempts, he has gained 4,211 yards (5.0 average) and 31 TDs with 118 receptions passes for 922 yards. In five seasons, he has missed 16 games, including 10 games last year with a mid-foot sprain. He is 100-percent healthy.
Running Back B signed a new contract with the Carolina Panthers last month that pays him 43 million over five seasons with 21 million guaranteed.Running Back B is DeAngelo Williams. Running Back A, obviously, is Frank Gore.Has Gore done enough to warrant a better contract than Williams? There is no question that he has. But the Panthers were very generous in signing Williams to a new deal. The 49ers do not want to use that contract as a comp because they are reluctant to make that kind of long-term commitment to a player they're uncertain can hold up physically beyond the next couple years.
So negotiations continue between the 49ers and Drew Rosenhaus, Gore's agent.

Report: Former 49ers WR works out for Jets

Report: Former 49ers WR works out for Jets

The competition between the Jets and Patriots extended into free-agent workouts this week. 

New England on Wednesday reportedly tried out Dres Anderson, a wide receiver recently released by the 49ers.

New York a day later brought Anderson in for a workout, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. 

Anderson, 24, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the 49ers in 2015. 

He has yet to appear in a regular-season game.

Anderson was released from the 49ers practice squad on Tuesday, Oct. 18 to clear room for another wide receiver, DeAndre Smelter.  

Injury report: Tartt returns to full practice for 49ers

Injury report: Tartt returns to full practice for 49ers

SANTA CLARA – Safety Jaquiski Tartt took part in full practice for the 49ers on Thursday, while wide receiver Torrey Smith and defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey were limited.

Running back Carlos Hyde is the only 49ers player who did not participate in practice. He will not play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But it appears everyone else on the 49ers has a strong chance to be available.

Cornerback Rashard Robinson was cleared for limited non-contact football activity as he advances through the NFL’s return-to-play concussion protocol. Jimmie Ward, who missed the past three games due to a quadriceps strain, saw his second day of full work.

Tartt missed last week’s game with a quadriceps injury. After limited work on Wednesday, he was cleared for a full return on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Joshua Garnett (foot), Robinson, Dorsey (knee) and Smith (back) saw limited practice.

The Buccaneers do not expect to have running back Doug Martin available for Sunday’s game. Martin (hamstring) sustained a setback, according to coach Dirk Koetter.
