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

May 2, 2008
First minicamp is underway

A couple of notes before the 2008 49ers take the field for the first time:

* Lewis Baker, one of the the undrafted free agents, played linebacker at Oklahoma but will play safety in the minicamp. Baker is listed as 6-3, 203 pounds. His birthplace is listed as Bremerhaven, Germany.

* Wide receiver Isaac Bruce wore No. 80 in St. Louis. He is listed as No. 88 on the roster. Fellow receiver Cam Colvin may have received the kiss of death. He's wearing no. 81, which has been a bit of a jinx ever since Terrell Owens left town. Bryant Johnson is wearing No. 82.

Tune in later for lots of news ....
