The Contra Costa Times' Cam Inman reports it appears it may be a three-way battle at PK for the San Francisco 49ers to replace Wade Richey. The candidates are undrafted free agent Jamie Rheem, former XFL PK Jose Cortez and NFL Europe prodigy James Tuthill. "Hopefully we'll have those three in (training) camp and let them fight it out," 49ers special teams coach Bruce DeHaven said. The 49ers likely won't bring in a veteran kicker until after June 1 because of salary cap reasons. The team has not signed Cortez yet but they are, as previously reported, expected to soon. Both Rheem and Cortez were "7- or 8-for-9," according to DeHaven, on FG attempts, and each connected from 55 yards in mini-camp.

Matt Maiocco reports for the Press Democrat the San Francisco 49ers have made contract offers to DTs Dana Stubblefield and Brentson Buckner this week but have yet to reach an agreement with either. Buckner turned down a two-year, incentive-laden deal that would've included a signing bonus of a little more than $50,000. They plan to talk again next week. They continue to work on a deal for Stubblefield and would like something done before the draft. In a separate story, the San Jose Mercury News reports Stubblefield's salary demands are too high. In talks with the 49ers over the past eight days, Stubblefield's agent, Neil Cornrich, has pressed for a combined $2.5 million in first-year salary and signing bonus, a team executive said. That demand is too rich for the 49ers. The team did clear $512,000 in cap space when PK Wade Richey left for San Diego.

As an update to previous reports, Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports the San Francisco 49ers, to no surprise, will not match the San Diego Chargers offer-sheet to PK Wade Richey. The five-year, $6 million deal is set up to make it almost impossible for San Francisco to retain him. The 49ers have until Friday to make their decision official. The team, who has never paid a kicker more than the $358,000 Richey made a year ago, will look to sign a free agent at minimum salary.
Sat, 14 Apr 2001 21:36:57 -0700
Should the 49ers elect not to match the Chargers offer to PK Wade Richey, they'd save $512,000 under the salary cap. SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli reports at this time the 49ers are only about $256,000 under the cap. With the additional room, the team could find a way to work out a deal that would land DL Dana Stubblefield. However, it's not certain he'll sign with the 49ers yet as the New England Patriots also remain interested. Stubblefield's wife reportedly would like to return to the Bay area.
Sat, 14 Apr 2001 21:20:36 -0700
SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the San Francisco 49ers are unlikely to match the San Diego Chargers offer-sheet to restricted free agent PK Wade Richey.

Jay Paris reports for the North County Times agent Jack Mills is upset with the way things are working out for PK John Carney. Early in the free agency period, the Chargers offered Carney a five-year contract for $4.5 million. It included a $750,000 signing bonus and a $500,000 base for this year. The Chargers then pulled the offer without notifying Carney, according to Mills. "That was real stinko," Mills said. After striking out in the free agent market, Carney was surprised to learn he wasn't welcomed back with his old team. Now, he hopes to catch on somewhere else, possibly with the Saints or Giants. With the contract PK Wade Richey agreed to, the Chargers would be spending $250,000 less this year, but $1.5 million more over a five-year period. The Chargers did call Mills to tell him about the Richey offer sheet.
Sat, 14 Apr 2001 13:59:17 -0700
Matt Maiocco reports for the Press Democrat agent Jimmy Field doubts the San Francisco 49ers will match the San Diego Chargers offer sheet for his client, PK Wade Richey. If they don't match, the 49ers will gain an immediate salary cap savings of $512,000, which might create enough room for them to sign DT Dana Stubblefield next week. The 49ers can save another $209,000 if they waive QB Kevin Nawracaj, a street free agent who was recently released by Berlin of NFL Europe. Richey has a strong leg judging by his 13 touchbacks last season. Only Sebastian Janikowski of the Oakland Raiders had more touchbacks (16) among non-dome kickers.
Sat, 14 Apr 2001 10:47:23 -0700
According to Jim Trotter of the Union-Tribune, the offer sheet signed by PK Wade Richey with the San Diego Chargers is a five-year deal that could bring him nearly $6 million, with $1 million guaranteed this season. An NFL source familiar with San Francisco's salary-cap situation said the 49ers are $256,000 beneath the cap, which means they must clear roughly $750,000 to retain Richey. Agent Jack Mills, who represents current Chargers PK John Carney, does not expect the 49ers to match thus ending the Carney era in San Diego.
Fri, 13 Apr 2001 18:36:06 -0700
Associated Press reports the San Diego Chargers have signed San Francisco 49ers PK Wade Richey, a restricted free agent, to an undisclosed offer sheet. The 49ers have one week to match the deal or Richey will join the Chargers.
Tue, 27 Feb 2001 20:20:39 -0800
According to their official site, the San Francisco 49ers made tender offers to nine free agents today. FS Lance Schulters, FB Fred Beasley, LB Jeff Posey and K Wade Richey were the restricted free agents issued tenders. Schulters was given the highest tender meaning his compensatioin will be first and third round draft choices. Beasely was given the middle tender of $1.115 million which requires a first round pick as compensation. Posey and Richey were given minimum tenders of $512,000. The 49ers made tenders to exclusive-rights free agents, QB Jeff Garcia, RB Jonas Lewis, C Ben Lynch, S Ronnie Heard and P Chad Stanley.

The San Jose Mercury News reports San Francisco 49ers S Pierson Prioleau (right hamstring pull) and LB Artie Ulmer (groin pull) are doubtful for Saturday's game. T Scott Gragg sprained his left knee in the first quarter but returned to the game. K Wade Richey (sprained knee) is probable.
