SANTA CLARA -– Reggie Bush has gone the past three seasons without lining up deep to field a punt.

SANTA CLARA -– Perhaps, the 49ers’ most important position group has been without two starters during the team’s offseason program.
Rookie running back Mike Davis was attractive to the 49ers as an every-down threat because of his ability to catch passes out of the backfield.
The 49ers are $7.196 million under the salary cap after the retirement of defensive lineman Justin Smith, according to NFLPA figures that were updated Thursday morning.
The 49ers’ on-field, pre-game pep talk is likely a thing of the past with Patrick Willis’ retirement.
