The San Francisco 49ers are expected to hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their new head coach. Shanahan and the 49ers will begin conducting a second round of interviews with potential general manager candidates on Saturday, January 28. The Falcons are preparing for Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots.

The 49ers can meet with Shanahan because the Falcons will be enjoying a bye week. Atlanta is spending the beginning of the week preparing to face New England.

Update:
The 49ers have hired former NFL safety and FOX analyst John Lynch to be their new general manager.

Below is a list of the known general manager candidates that will have second interviews with the 49ers, who will now be joined by Shanahan.

2022 Schedule Tracker: 49ers open at Bears, host Seahawks Week 2

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on



Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,

According to Ben Goessling, who covers the Minnesota Vikings for the Star Tribune, the Vikings are trying to finalize joint practices at their TCO Performance Center during training camp. That would point toward a preseason matchup between the two teams at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The #Vikings are trying to finalize joint practices with the 49ers at TCO Performance Center during training camp, sources said this morning.
