Reid and Bowman discuss what the 49ers’ new stability means to them

Feb 9, 2017 at 5:38 PM--


Kyle Shanahan will be the fourth head coach of the San Francisco 49ers in as many years. That means that players will be learning their fourth scheme during that timeframe. That lack of consistency can have major drawbacks because players never really get comfortable within a system.

49ers safety Eric Reid and linebacker NaVorro Bowman joined KNBR on Thursday to discuss their new head coach and new general manager. One of the questions that they were asked was about the six-year deals that both Shanahan and John Lynch signed with the 49ers. The pair will be with the team for a while. What does that mean to each player?

"I think it's great," Reid said. "We talked a little bit earlier about having a new scheme every year and it's hard to be successful when you always feel like you're learning. So knowing that they're going to be here a while, you know that you can get comfortable in the scheme, that everybody will have a chance to master it and flourish in the scheme. I find that encouraging."

"From John and Kyle's point of view, I feel like when you leave something, a successful place, comfortable, you want to know you're going to be secure in this next place that you're going," said Bowman. "I think it was a weight lifted off their shoulders and them just coming in, able to do their job and not worrying about their job security."

Bowman knows something about feeling secure. The All-Pro linebacker signed a new four-year extension worth $44 million with the 49ers back in August while he already had three years left on his old deal – increasing the contract to seven years. The new deal will keep him with the 49ers through the 2022 season.

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said



John Lynch explains the 49ers re-signing Jason Verrett

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus provided his updated power rankings after the 2022 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers remained at the No.5 spot, with no movement post draft. Hanzus offered no comments on the 49ers draft selections but he did comment on the availability of All-Pro Deebo Samuel. Hanzus writes: "Meanwhile, the Niners don't seem at all eager to move superstar wide receiver Deebo Samuel, trade demand be damned.
