49ers safety Adrian Colbert is training with Earl Thomas

Jul 12, 2018 at 6:42 PM--

A contingent of San Francisco 49ers defensive players traveled to Hawaii last year to train with then-Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett. It made a lot of sense considering Robert Saleh's defensive scheme is based on the one in Seattle. It would appear that another 49er defensive player is getting some work in with another (for now) Seahawk.

Adrian Colbert, who is projected to be the 49ers' starting free safety, is training with three-time first-team All-Pro Earl Thomas. The second-year Niner learning from one of the best safeties in the game bodes well for his development.

Thomas posted the following photo two days ago of those taking part in the workout, including Colbert.

The 49es made Colbert a seventh-round draft pick out of Miami last year. He started six of the 49ers' final seven games as a rookie. Colbert finished 2017 with 37 combined tackles, five passes defensed, and two forced fumbles through 14 game appearances.

Meanwhile, Thomas is involved in a contract dispute and has hinted that he would love to play for the Dallas Cowboys.

Jun 24 writer Kevin Patra took a look around the league and ranked the 10 biggest remaining roster holes heading into training camp. Some teams appear set for the 2022 season.

Heading into the 2022 NFL season, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch chose to focus on one thing—depth. There will be some exciting battles in training camp in 2022 at just about every position. Let's dig into the four deepest parts of this year's team. We'll begin with the deepest position on the roster—the defensive line. The 49ers currently have 16 defensive linemen on their 90-man roster. The battle on edge will be one to watch for sure. With Dee Ford still on the roster, it will be interesting to see what the 49ers choose to do with him. Shanahan may plan to move forward with his release pending his physical.

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to hoisting the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. They fell just short during the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens. Seven years later, they fell short again, collapsing in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and watching as the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated a championship. Last season, the 49ers were a play or two away from returning to sports' biggest stage, falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game. San Francisco can't get over the hump. On Monday, the Bay Area celebrated the Golden State Warriors' seventh championship as thousands of fans swarmed Market Street for the parade. It's an inspiring sight for the championship-hungry 49ers. "Yeah,
