49ers safety Adrian Colbert is mic’d up for minicamp

San Francisco 49ers safety Adrian Colbert was mic'd up for the second day of the team's mandatory minicamp. You can check out the video below.



As expected, the Niners' starting free safety spends as much time talking as he does practicing. Colbert even gets into a little nickname discussion, which -- along with administering crushing hits on opposing wide receivers -- is one of the second-year defender's claims to fame:


In addition to Colbert, a number of key players make cameos in the video, including linebacker Reuben Foster, who demonstrates why he's an unlikely candidate to take over the team's punt-return duties this season.

Wide receiver Pierre Garçon also makes an appearance, showcasing his quickness -- and his recovery from last season's neck injury -- with a reception on a drag route.

Overall, the team appears to be loose and having fun during the 49ers' second minicamp practice.

If you missed it, fellow defensive back Richard Sherman was mic'd up for the first day of mandatory minicamp. You can check out Sherman's return to the practice field here.

Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
