The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier to a four-year contract.
Pitman High graduate and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made a surprise appearance at his alma maters commencement ceremony. The 2006 Pitman grad and current NFL superstar made quite a stealthy entrance, too.
The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows (49ers) and Jason Jones (Raiders) will talk about the upcoming draft this morning starting 11 a.m. Have a question? Want see see what's being said? Barrows talks 49ers at 11 and Jones will field questions on the Raiders starting at noon.

A quarterback who can gobble up yards on the ground as well as through the air? Before Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick made headlines, Pat White was well-known for his versatility at West Virginia.
This was hardly the way CBS wanted its Super Bowl telecast to be remembered for a stadium power outage that briefly silenced its game announcers. But the network handled the 35-minute delay competently and then caught a break when the 49ers turned a blowout into a compelling game.
In the zero-sum world of the NFL, there is no nuance, only the final score. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the pride of Turlock, believes he lost the Super Bowl for his team in its 34-31 defeat against the Baltimore Ravens.
Losing the Super Bowl was a pain the 49ers never dealt with in their previous five trips. But Sunday night, they came away with a new, crushing feeling that left them grasping for explanations after dropping a 34-31 heartbreaker to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.
If Colin Kaepernick is not geared up for the biggest game of his young life, he has fooled us all. His cold stare since Wednesday suggests a lion a member of the Pitman Pride, perhaps? staring down a wildebeest dinner in the Serengeti.
David Young, graying beard tumbling down below his chin, patiently waters the vegetable and fruit garden on a plot of land where a house once stood in the Ninth Ward, the New Orleans suburb devastated by Hurricane Katrina 7½ years ago. If anyone demonstrates the ongoing and grassroots restoration happening here, it is Young, a retired police chief from Indiana. "I was called to to do this," he said. He is the founder of Capstone, a teen jail ministry that has done much good for an area that still needs help. A visit Saturday revealed the scars and the sadness inflicted on the Ninth Ward. One abandoned home bore a white X near the front door, meaning the authorities who inspected it found no more dead bodies. Conversely, the scene also illustrated the continuing bounceback. New Orleans' population, about 500,000 before Katrina, dipped to about 300,000 after the disaster. Today, it's crept up to about 400,000. Today marks the first Super Bowl in the Big Easy since the catastrophe. New Orleans is a city armed with too much life to destroy.

Before the 46-member selection committee meets Saturday to choose the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class for 2013, there's something Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott and other former 49ers would like to say on behalf of their former owner.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced that his city is pushing back many Mardi Gras events to next week so they won't clash with the Super Bowl and further stress an already thin police force. That's a good idea. Name another city where the Super Bowl would receive second billing.
I can't imagine how the Harbaugh family will survive Sunday. Last year was bad enough when both coaching brothers, Jim of the 49ers and John of the Ravens, lost heartbreaking championship games on the same day.
Daniel Lurie turned a corner in the French Quarter and came face-to-face with his potential future. It was a giant painted football, alongside a row of stages for various television networks, one looked over by a large Mardi Gras clown statue.
The image was like a time machine to 1982.
Friday at the Super Bowl began with a joint press conference featuring the Harbaugh brothers Baltimore coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh.
