Bruce Miller


The past three 49ers coaches have shared a belief when it comes to how rookies should be integrated into the team.


SANTA CLARA – The 49ers’ defense responded with a strong showing on Thursday, the final day of the team’s offseason program.


SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers’ offense had a strong showing on the practice field Wednesday on the second day of the team’s three-day mandatory minicamp.


SANTA CLARA – Veteran Erik Pears has been lining up with the 49ers’ first-team offense during the team’s offseason program, while Trent Brown is running with the second unit.


SANTA CLARA – If Bruce Miller’s new position sticks, gone are the days of the down-to-down bone-jarring collisions as a lead-blocker from the fullback position.
