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

Lobbying for the old guard

Question: Hey, do you think the 49ers will re-sign Larry Allen? I'm not exactly sure but I think his contract is up after this year. I believe he still has a good three more years in him.

Answer: That depends on Allen, who is indeed in the last year of his contract. Perhaps his absence from the team's only minicamp (it was an excused absence) is an indication he's reaching the end of the line. But if the 49ers do, in fact, make the playoffs, he might want to play another season or two. What is certain is that he will be a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee.
