The Los Angeles Rams appear to be very interested in Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay. Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY is reporting that McVay had a second interview with the Rams following his interview with the team last week. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network states that the San Francisco 49ers remain in the mix, but that things are "heating up."



Sean McVay, who is the grandson of former New York Giants coach and 49ers general manager John McVay, interviewed with San Francisco on Monday.

McVay has been the offensive coordinator with Washington since 2014. Before that, he served as the tight ends coach and assistant tight ends coach with the team. McVay began his NFL coaching career in 2008 as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He guided a Washington offense that was ranked third in total offense and second in passing in 2016.

At age 30, McVay is the youngest coordinator in the league and a promotion would make him the youngest head coach. He will turn 31 later this month.

Other 49ers coaching candidates appear to be on the move as well. Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott looks to be close to landing with the Buffalo Bills. McDermott interviewed with the 49ers on Tuesday. Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is tentatively scheduled to meet with the 49ers on Thursday, but that interview will not happen if he is signed by the Denver Broncos to replace Gary Kubiak. Joseph interviewed with Denver on Tuesday. He and Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable remain the only known head coach candidates that the 49ers have not yet met with.

Late Tuesday night, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area broke the news that the 49ers had added another name to their list of general manager candidates. The team plans to meet with Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough on Friday.

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa. However, that last one didn't get finalized until dangerously close to the start of the regular season. This year, the team has been trying to get a deal done with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. While the 49ers were confident early on, given their successful track record, that a deal would be reached, the two sides reportedly remain far apart in negotiations. Last week, Michael Silver of the San Francisco

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference. The fumble by running back Christian McCaffrey during the opening drive is the one play that sticks out in the tight end's mind. "I think if we could [avoid] that turnover, I think that's a difference," Kittle stated. It's worth noting that Kittle had an opportunity to recover the fumble, which would have kept the football in the 49ers'

The San Francisco 49ers didn't have to sit with the sting of February's heartbreaking Super Bowl defeat for too long. That's one of the benefits of playing deep into the postseason. Before you know it, you are back at work, preparing for the next season. Two months after the loss, the 49ers reported for the start of the offseason program, which concluded last week with a two-day minicamp. Most of the players and coaches have moved past that game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the memory of it serves as motivation for the 2024 season. That doesn't mean returning after the loss was easy. However, it's not the first time the 49ers have faced
