My thoughts: Smith is set to be sentenced July 25. He could face jail time. He could also face an NFL suspension. Smith’s future is very much up in the air.
• Colin Kaepernick investigation goes to state attorney’s office in Florida
My thoughts: The case in Miami, in which Kaepernick and receiver Quinton Patton have been investigated in a “suspicious incident” has been ongoing for two months. It is said to be winding down.
• 49ers' entire draft class is signed
My thoughts: This is one of the best aspects of the new CBA. One of the silliest moments of every summer was signing a fourth-round pick holdout for a week and he would fall behind. Thankfully, that doesn't happen anymore.
• LaMichael James joins workouts
My thoughts: James was open to a trade, and was staying away from the team. However, when he wasn't traded during the draft, James rejoined the team's voluntary workouts. It was a smart move. The team currently has no plans of trading James, and thus, he needs to make the roster. Being with the team helps his cause.
• Jerry Rice Jr. not signed after tryout
My thoughts: It’s no surprise. He didn't make much of an impact at UCLA and UNLV in his college career.
• Kaepernick loses to Richard Sherman in "Madden NFL 15" cover semifinal vote
My thoughts: That’s a good thing for Kaepernick and the 49ers, right? You now, the curse and all.
Salary cap update: Now, that June 1 has passed, the 49ers have gained $6.6 million in cap space per the release of cornerback Carlos Rogers. The 49ers have about $8 million in cap space. Some of that money could be used to sign Kaepernick, and perhaps another player, to an extension.
