NFL rumors: Nick Foles to sign with Jaguars at start of NFL free agency


The 49ers locked down the fifth spot on their offensive line Sunday by agreeing to terms with guard Mike Person on a three-year contract extension, a league source told NBC Sports Bay Area.


49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch both expressed last week during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis that they would like Person to remain with the team.

You have to take any rumor emanating from the NFL Scouting Combine with several large grains of salt, but one making the rounds Sunday night could have a tremendous impact on both the 49ers and the Raiders if proven to be true.


From a Raiders perspective, Arizona predetermining its pick of Murray would eliminate one more piece of mystery as Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock develop their strategy for the first of their three first-round selections.


Among the most obvious reasons why one might doubt the sincerity of this rumor, the fact the Cardinals used their first-round pick last season on quarterback Josh Rosen has to be near the top of the list.
