SANTA CLARA -– General manager Trent Baalke said he was happy for Michael Sam.
SANTA CLARA – Frank Gore is entering the final year of his contract, and he will not be with the 49ers forever.
SANTA CLARA – The 49ers' acquisition of veteran Stevie Johnson on Friday meant a wide receiver was not nearly as big of a need for the team on Day 2 of the NFL Draft.
The 49ers did not make the expected move to trade up in Round 1 of the NFL Draft, so that leaves the team with a lot of options for Friday’s second and third rounds.
