49ers wide receiver Pierre Garçon goes skydiving

Jul 10, 2018 at 8:34 AM--

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, that's Pierre Garçon jumping out of a plane. The San Francisco 49ers wide receiver recently took to the air for the thrill of plummeting at excessive speed toward the Earth.

"I was good until they opened the door," wrote Garçon via Instagram.

Garçon added the hashtag #SoHappyTheParachuteOpened.

You can use the post below to scroll through the photos from Garçon's experience, which begins with him boarding the plane and ends with safely landing on the ground.

Garçon is preparing to enter his second season with the 49ers and 11th in the NFL. His 2017 season was cut short following a neck injury during Week 8. Garçon finished the season with 40 catches for 500 yards and was on pace for his third career 1,000-yard season before the injury.

"It was a huge challenge when we lost Pierre halfway through the year, especially with him being the veteran of that group, one of the only guys who had ever started before," said head coach Kyle Shanahan in January.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will benefit from having the savvy veteran at his disposal. Garçon was injured just days before the 49ers finalized the trade for the quarterback. This offseason was Garoppolo's first opportunity to work with Garçon.

"[Pierre] is as reliable as they come," Garoppolo said in June. "He has that veteran mentality of he knows exactly what to do. He's going to help you out, do whatever he can to put you in good situation as the quarterback."

49ers players are on a break until the team reconvenes for training camp on July 25.

Kyle Shanahan shares his side of 'words' with Brandon Aiyuk that led to 49ers receiver's turnaround

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has turned things around this season. Everyone expected big things from the second-year receiver, and he stalled out of the gate. He's excelled over the last five games, though, hauling in 23 passes for 336 yards and two touchdowns in that span. Last month, Aiyuk partially credited a conversation (or conversations) with Kyle Shanahan for his impressive turnaround. The receiver shared that he and his coach had "some words," leading many to believe there was at least some sort of verbal confrontation between the two. Even the team's general manager weighed in on the

Carlos Dunlap's hand may have been all that stopped the San Francisco 49ers from scoring on their final play during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »

Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"
