News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

Uh, Bryant is gone, dude

Question: I am a big fan of Lelie. How do you think he will do as a 49er and where does that leave Bryant? Would we possibly run Bryant, Lelie, and Gilmore? Lastly, Lance Briggs wants out of Chicago and now that Adalius Thomas is off the market, what are our chances? Man I love Nolan, I love where this team is going. Go 49ers.

Sean, Sacramento

Answer: Sean must have been out of the country recently. Worried about Bryant's off-field issues, the 49ers cut ties with him last month. As of now Lelie is the No. 1 option and it likely will remain that way unless the 49ers pull off a surprise trade. I don't think the 49ers are interested in Briggs, who is more of a 4-3 linebacker and who wants more money than the 49ers are willing to spend at this point in free agency.
