Falcons assistant Mike LaFleur joining 49ers to coach WRs

Feb 9, 2017 at 9:51 AM--


It was already known that Atlanta Falcons offensive assistant Mike LaFleur would be joining Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. However, there was some confusion about what his role might be. Alex Marvez of the Sporting News is clarifying that by reporting that LaFleur will be joining the 49ers as the team's wide receivers coach.


The confusion occurred because Marvez originally reported on Monday that Mike McDaniel would be joining the 49ers as the team's wide receivers coach. Those are two different Mikes and it does not help that Mike LaFleur's brother, Matt LaFleur, was on the Falcons coaching staff. He served as their quarterbacks coach in 2016 and will be the offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams in 2017.

Mike Silver of NFL Network seems to be hearing the same thing and on Friday provided an update on Kittle's contract situation. "There remains a pretty significant disconnect philosophically between the 49ers and George Kittle's camp. The 49ers believe they want to reset the tight end market and give him a great tight end deal.

Proving one's versatility will be essential for any player looking to earn a roster spot with the San Francisco 49ers this season. It always has been. You never know when one or two injuries will force an offensive tackle to move inside or a tight end to play fullback. That requirement is heightened across the league this year because no one knows what impact COVID-19 will have on a roster or the NFL as a whole. What if the virus knocks out half of your starting offensive line before a game? "Versatility is going to be absolutely huge," offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey told reporters on Monday via a video conference call. "It's going to make or break guys having jobs, and make or break situations to fill our roster because we can get into any situation at any

"I think we have one of the best locker rooms, one of the best groups of men in the whole NFL in our building," Warner told reporters via a video conference call. "I feel like everybody understands the situation and is willing to make the sacrifices needed." Warner noted that he has no plans to babysit any of his teammates.
