Watch 49ers receiver Dante Pettis mic’d up during last week’s minicamp

Jun 20, 2019 at 12:45 PM--

Dante Pettis was the latest San Francisco 49ers player to be mic'd up during practice. Players are currently enjoying some time off before reconvening in Santa Clara for training camp in late-July, but the team released the video below featuring the second-year wide receiver during last week's minicamp.

Note: While the tweet below states that the video is from organized team activities, the team's official YouTube page states that it is from minicamp. More specifically, it indicates that the video is from the June 12 practice, which closed out the minicamp and the offseason program with a Jimmy Garoppolo to Pettis touchdown, as shown in the video.

Pettis can be seen going through individual and team drills as well as heard interacting with his teammates, including asking fellow receivers Jordan Matthews and Marquise Goodwin if they would prefer a fork or spoon should they only be allowed to use one for the rest of their lives.

Both, by the way, picked a spoon because you can't eat cereal with a fork.

"Why does everyone like spoons so much?" a baffled Pettis asked. "You can't eat pasta with a spoon. How are you going to eat steak? No chicken."

The video also features Pettis working with the 49ers' new receivers coach, Wes Welker.

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk, by the way, agreed with Pettis on the fork versus spoon debate. You know — in case you were wondering.

In February, Vic Fangio met with the San Francisco 49ers, and some felt he might join the team as a consultant for the 2022 season. However, it was later reported that the longtime coach would be taking a year off. Fangio served as the 49ers' defensive coordinator from 2011-14 before serving in the same role with the Chicago Bears (2015-18) and then the Denver Broncos head coach (2019-21). San Francisco looked to bring Fangio back when Kyle Shanahan became the head coach in 2017, but Fangio couldn't get out of his contract with the Bears. Fangio is back in Santa

The San Francisco 49ers had their first day of rookie minicamp on Friday, in which the drills consisted of primarily 7-on-7s, as there was a lack of available offensive and defensive lineman for 11-on-11s. While there isn't normally much to take away from the first day of drills, here are three encouraging reports from Friday's start to rookie minicamp. 1. Danny Gray impresses Gray, a third-round selection in last month's NFL Draft, was reportedly the best player at minicamp, and it wasn't close. Gray showcased his speed on a number of occasions in 7-on-7s, including a near 50-yard touchdown catch when he got behind fellow rookie Tariq Castro-Fields in coverage for the score. While Gray had a dropped pass, which was

Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10
