Bubble Watch for San Francisco 49ers Training Camp

Will Nnamdi Asomugha have a rebirth in San Francisco? Or will he be cut before the regular season?

Since Jim Harbaugh rode into town to take the job as the San Francisco 49ers head coach, the organizational standard has been immediately raised, particularly in regards to how this team prepares. There is an underlying theme that even when it comes to vets or starters, no jobs are safe.

Players fearing for their livelihood, as well as others fighting for a chance to get in the spotlight, have both responded to this philosophy. It has guys lunging for tackles, studying that extra hour before bed (instead of playing Madden), asking veterans questions until they’re blue in the face, and so forth.

This collective initiative of 90 men working to get better and show everything they are made of in the span of a month—in an elimination-type situation—has led to some very competitive training camps with some real nail biters.  

With the high level of competition and overall talent, it is only natural that San Fran winds up cutting a few good players. The following profiles seven notable 49ers currently on the roster bubble.
