Kwame Harris close to a deal with the Raiders

It doesn't look like Kwame Harris is going very far. The one-time 49er has had visits with the Raiders and Jaguars and it seems as if he's settled on Oakland. His agent said a deal could be finalized as soon as the end of the day. Harris, of course, went to school at Stanford and played five seasons with the 49ers. His love of the Bay Area is well documented.

* My guys at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune are reporting the Vikings have a deal with Maurice Hicks. The former 49er running back now finds himself behind Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor on the depth chart.

* There's been very little news on Marques Douglas. He's visited the Bucs and other teams have expressed interest. But so far nada. I expect that interest level will pick up now that Justin Smith, Antwan Odom, Bobby McCray and Travis LaBoy are off the market. The 49ers are still interested in Douglas ... if the price is right.
