NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders stood by his previous report that 49ers players have concerns about HC Jim Harbaugh Thursday night.
“I have sources,” Sanders said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’m not going to name my sources. I have sources that wear football uniforms, coats, suits and ties. I didn’t stutter, nor did I stumble. This is real. You’re talking about Trent Baalke. We know there is a rift between he and Harbaugh. We all know that; that’s why the whole Cleveland thing came up last year. Who would have ever heard of thinking about trading a coach? Why would Cleveland even inquire if there was nothing there? That has trickled down into the locker room. Not only are my sources correct, I checked [with] three insiders from different networks and it’s 100 percent. You can shoot the messenger but the message is real.”
