Former Titans OT Byron Bell visited the 49ers over the weekend

Mar 13, 2017 at 11:21 AM--


Former Tennessee Titans OT Byron Bell visited with the San Francisco 49ers over the weekend, per Field Yates of ESPN.


As Yates points out, Bell missed the 2016 season after dislocating his ankle during organized team activities in May.

"[Bell] has really had a great offseason" Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said following the injury. "He's really worked hard. That's the first thing he said, 'I've worked so hard to have it end like this.' Those are the kinds of injuries that are going to happen in this game. It's unfortunate for him and unfortunate for us. He's a good football player, and we're going to miss him."

Bell, who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Carolina Panthers out of New Mexico in 2011, started all 16 games for the Titans in 2015. The offensive lineman has played in 78 regular season games over his career, starting 72.

Current, former 49ers react to Jets hiring Robert Saleh as head coach

After a two-day interview this week, now-former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh landed the head-coaching job with the New York Jets. It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco. "I don't know what's wrong with people if they don't hire him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier this month. "I mean, he's as good as you can get, and he knows more about football, all three phases, and he's going to hire the best staff, knows about players, he knows what they're talking about, who doesn't know what they're talking about, and he also knows how to deal with people."

49ers glad 2020 season is finally over

Like so many around the world, the way the San Francisco 49ers reacted to the end of 2020 can be summed up in one word -- relief. Of course, things got quite unusual for the 49ers towards the end of 2020, given the fact the team had to live in a hotel in Arizona for over a month in order to finish its season after local COVID-19 ordinances in Santa Clara shut down any remaining home games. The 49ers' season came to an end with a 26-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, which means the players, coaches, and staff will now get the chance to go home -- and in some cases see their families -- for the first time in 32 days. It's understandable then that after that loss to the Seahawks, 49ers players and head coach Kyle Shanahan showed visible happiness that 2020
