SANTA CLARA -- As many as seven defensive players who saw significant starting action last season will not be back for the 49ers this season.
Jim Tomsula’s first offseason as 49ers head coach begins on Tuesday, but he will have to wait two weeks before he and his coaches are allowed on the field to work with their players.
General manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday he feels good about the 49ers' situation at cornerback.
When the 2014 season began, the 49ers figured to feature Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver as starting cornerbacks and rookie Jimmie Ward as the team’s nickelback.
SANTA CLARA – Rookie cornerback Dontae Johnson will be in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals in the 49ers’ season finale to replace injured Perrish Cox.
