With the San Francisco 49ers about to start their offsason training program Tuesday in Santa Clara, here’s an updated look at moves the team has made thus far this offseason:
RB Jarryd Hayne: Australian rugby star chose the Niners, who he said gave him $100,000 guaranteed on a futures/reserve contract, over the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks to begin his American football adventure and plans to play running back and special teams … if he makes the squad.
DL Darnell Dockett: Former Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowler stays in the division to fortify D-line, which will already be without Ray McDonald and possibly also Justin Smith, with two-year, $7.5 million contract.
WR Jerome Simpson: Acrobatic wideout known for his forward somersault TD for Cincinnati and his legal issues signed to two-year deal.
WR Torrey Smith: Five-year, $40 million contract with $22 million guaranteed brings big and fast deep threat who could be the yin to Anquan Boldin’s yang -- like they were in Baltimore when the Ravens beat the Niners in Super Bowl XLVII.
RB Reggie Bush: No. 2 pick of 2006 draft signs one-year contract to return to California as the San Diego native and USC product will be part of a three-headed Niners rushing attack, along with Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter.
OL Erik Pears: Eight-year NFL veteran who spent past five years with Buffalo Bills signs two-year deal, $4.7 million contract to compete for left guard spot (Pro Football Focus gave him a -25.0 grade last season, 76th of 78 guards) and/or provide depth at right tackle.
LB Nick Bellore: Special teams ace who led New York Jets in special teams tackles in three of the past four years as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan. Has played in all 64 games since entering the league in 2011, though has yet to start one.
LB Patrick Willis: Spiritual leader retires at age 30 after eight seasons, seven Pro Bowls and five All-Pro selections due to sore feet and a desire to move on.
WR Stevie Johnson: Released in cost-cutting move, signed three-year, $10.5 million deal with the Chargers.
CB Chris Culliver: Took his career-high four interceptions from 2014 and legal issues to Washington with a four-year deal worth up to $32 million.
LB Chris Borland: Stunned Niners and NFL by announcing his retirement after one standout season, citing potential future health concerns.
RT Jonathan Martin: Waived after starting nine games in his lone season with the Niners last year.
CB Corey Fuller: Waived after being signed to the practice squad last December and being active for one game, though he did not play in the season finale.
QB Josh Johnson: Despite having a skill set more closely resembling starter Colin Kaepernick’s than that of Blaine Gabbert, Johnson was allowed to leave Santa Clara as he signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals. Johnson spent the 2013 season with the Bengals.
QB Gabbert: Lone Niners QB to throw a fourth-quarter TD last season agrees to two-year, $2 million deal to return as Kaepernick’s backup.
TE Garrett Celek: Signed to a one-year deal.
LS Kyle Nelson: Signed to four-year deal.
TE Derek Carrier: Signed a two-year extension.
CB Chris Cook: Re-signed to a one-year deal.
LB Desmond Bishop: Became more appealing to Niners with only three inside linebackers with NFL experience under contract after Willis and Borland retired. Bishop purportedly beat out the likes of Lance Briggs, Erin Henderson and Philip Wheeler and signed a one-year deal to return to Niners.
DL Justin Smith: Still contemplating retirement and Niners have given him as long as he needs to reach decision.
WR Michael Crabtree: Visited Miami Dolphins and, while he has also drawn interest from Washington and San Diego Chargers, is willing to wait for the right offer to come his way. Niners general manager Trent Baalke would not publically take him off the table. Reportedly set to visit with the Oakland Raiders this week.
WR Brandon Lloyd: Niners have had no conversations with the veteran wide receiver.
