Kenny Stills

Takkarist McKinley

  • UCLA DE/OLB Takkarist McKinley (labrum/glenoid) said he will undergo shoulder surgery after performing a full workout at the NFL combine and expects to have a 5-6 month timetable for recovery. (Jason Cole)
  • According to Cole, McKinley said he did 24 bench reps of 230 pounds on Thursday, despite requiring surgery on his right shoulder.
  • Cole also writes that all 32 NFL teams have already been informed of McKinley’s plans for surgery.


Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh said on Tim Kawakami’s podcast on Thursday that he deserves an “endurance medal” for his achievements while with the 49ers’ current ownership.

I take pride in that,” Harbaugh said. “Maybe there should be an endurance medal, a courage medal, for that.”

Harbaugh went on to say that he would have “loved” to work with recently hired 49ers GM John Lynch and that he reminds him of Michigan’s athletic director Warde Manuel.

I would’ve loved to have worked for John Lynch,” Harbaugh said. “He reminds me a lot of the athletic director we have here [at Michigan], Warde Manuel, who’s also a former player and a teammate of mine. Common-sense guys who are team guys, just the way they go about their business always speaks volumes.”


  • Ryan Wood of USA Today does not expect the Packers to “break the bank” in order to re-sign C J.C. Tretter, since C Corey Linsley has a year left on his rookie contract and appears to be Green Bay’s future starter.
  • Wood writes that the Packers are not expected to match another team’s offer to Tretter if they intend on paying him like a starting center.


  • According to Adam Caplan, Seahawks CB Perrish Cox‘s one-year deal with the team will carry a salary of $855,000.
