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.

Former 49ers TE Vernon Davis not overthinking Hall of Fame chances

By David Bonilla
May 27

Vernon Davis announced his retirement from the NFL in 2020, making his first year of eligibility for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2025. While Davis played for the Denver Broncos, winning a Super Bowl there, and the Washington Commanders, he is best known for his time with the San Francisco 49ers. Davis ranks seventh all-time among tight ends in points scored with 382 and 11th in receiving yards with 7,562. His receiving yard total falls just short of the average among the tight ends already inducted into the Hall of Fame, which is 7,656 yards. The Hall of Fame's criteria for inductees are stringent, understandably so. Still, fans often question why certain players are overlooked for induction. For example, 49ers fans can't believe that Roger Craig has yet to

Following the release of the 2024 NFL schedule, much attention was drawn to the San Francisco 49ers' rest differential of minus-22, once again the worst in the NFL. Rest differential measures the difference in rest days between games for a team and the rest days of each of its opponents throughout the season. ESPN's Brian Burke highlighted the 49ers' rest differential for the upcoming season, noting it as one of the three worst since 2002, alongside the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles and the 2005 San Diego Chargers. Rest difference vs opponents. Tough scene for SF.

The San Francisco 49ers were interested in signing a safety in free agency and targeted Rayshawn Jenkins, a former Jacksonville Jaguars player. Jenkins visited the Seattle Seahawks before heading to the Bay Area to meet with the 49ers. "Then I had two more visits set up, but Seattle called, made an offer," Jenkins shared with reporters this week. He revealed that the 49ers offered to match the deal, but Jenkins opted to accept the Seahawks' offer instead. "I wanted to go to a contender," Jenkins explained. "I wanted to go to a bigger market (than Jacksonville). I felt like Seattle was the perfect place. Plenty of opportunity. I'm going into a team with a head coach that's defensive-minded." Most consider the 49ers a Super Bowl contender,

Brandon Staley has transitioned from working with one Bosa to another. As the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, he worked with four-time Pro Bowl pass rusher Joey Bosa. Now, he gets to work with Joey's younger brother, Nick Bosa, who also boasts four Pro Bowl selections and a first-team All-Pro nod in 2022. Staley joined head coach Kyle Shanahan's staff and will serve as the assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Speaking to reporters last week, he expressed his admiration for the Bosa brothers and considers himself fortunate to work with both. "I think having to face Nick, you know what a challenge he is," Staley said. "And I've coached Khalil Mack, Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Leonard Floyd, and Nick's always a guy that we would watch.
