NFC Notes: 49ers, Cowboys, Falcons



  • Field Yates of ESPN reports that the 49ers signed RB Alfred Morris to a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum of $790,000.
  • Yates adds that Morris will count $630,000 against the cap and will need to play his way on to the regular season roster.
  • According to Matt BarrowsJeremy McNichols was the first 49ers running back on the field for every drill on Wednesday and he looked good in limited action against the Cowboys.


  • Cowboys HC Jason Garrett told reporters on Wednesday that C Travis Frederick is in Los Angeles to get his shoulder examined. According to Garrett, Frederick has been bothered by stingers affecting his shoulder in recent practices. (Brandon George)
  • Dallas had Zack Martin taking some practice reps at center during a walk-thru earlier in camp. Jon Machota mentions that the Cowboys would prefer to keep Martin at right guard even if Frederick misses some time, but it proves to be an injury that will cost him a good portion of the season, it’s possible Martin could move to center.
  • Cowboys QB Dak Prescott singled out Tavon Austin as the new receiver who has stood out to him: “I’d say Tavon Austin for the simple fact that [when he was w/ the Rams] I didn’t know he was as good of a receiver as he is, and can run routes as well as he does, and catches the ball every single time.” (Jon Machota)


Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian says that he and WR Julio Jones are in a “much better space” than they were at a year ago.

“We have a year under our belt together,” Sarkisian said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Eighteen games of working together and understanding the things he does and what he’s comfortable with. I think all of that adding up has put us in a much better space at this time this year then maybe this time a year ago. It’s night and day of kind of where we are at.
