Kaepernick looking to brow beat Wilson?

9/10/2013

Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are likely going to be on-field rivals for the next decade.

They better pace themselves on bodily bets.

As part of their EA partnership, the two players have bet an eyebrow- -- yes, an eyebrow –- on the outcome of Sunday’s game in Seattle. My thoughts? Well, they both seem like fun-loving guys who enjoy each other’s company. But I’m not keeping my eye out on this angle.

It’s a fun gag fueled by a mutual business venture. But come Sunday night, neither player is going to worry about eyebrows. But whatever gets them talking, right?

Meanwhile, the Sacramento Bee reported the 49ers worked out tackle Jason Smith. The No. 2 overall pick in 2009 has often tried out and has often been cut. The 49ers are strong on the offensive line, but could be looking to have a strong tackle backup option. Smith has not shown the capacity to be a reliable option.

The Bee is also reporting defensive lineman Will Tukuafu is being released to make room for fellow defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs. He is returning from a one-game suspension. It’s no surprise as Tukuafu was inactive Sunday.
