On one hand, free-agent receiver Antonio Brown has an ankle injury that needs surgery. On the other hand, he has said that it’s improving — and he was playing on it as of 20 days, before he was kicked off the Buccaneers during a game. So he’s not 100 percent. But at something less than […]

Seventeen years ago, the 49ers opted to use the first overall pick not on local prospect (and 49ers fan) Aaron Rodgers but on Alex Smith. Rodgers, as we well know, didn’t like it.
