49ers hosting OT Sam Young, working out long snappers Jon Condo and Garrison Sanborn, per reports

Sep 17, 2019 at 6:39 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers are hosting offensive tackle Sam Young and working out long snappers Jon Condo and Garrison Sanborn on Tuesday. The report on Young comes from Adam Schefter of ESPN while the Condo and Sanborn news comes from Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

The 49ers lost Joe Staley for six to eight weeks after the starting left tackle suffered a broken fibula on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Young, 32, was initially signed by the 49ers on August 12 after the loss of swing tackle Shon Coleman (ankle, fibula) for the season. Somewhat surprisingly, he was waived as part of the team's 53-player roster cut-down.

The Cowboys made Young a sixth-round selection out of Notre Dame in 2010. Young has 88 game appearances and 21 starts through his nine NFL seasons. He appeared in 22 games with seven starts for the Miami Dolphins over the last two seasons.

Condo, 38, is a two-time Pro Bowl selection. The Dallas Cowboys signed the long snapper as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland in 2005. He spent the majority of his career with the Oakland Raiders (2006–17) and part of last season with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Buffalo Bills signed Sanborn as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State in 2009. The 34-year-old most recently played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2017-18).

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to sign tight end George Kittle to a long-term extension. The two sides don't sound as though they are very close in the negotiation process, however. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the 49ers and Kittle's camp are not "particularly close on anything." Mike Silver of NFL Network seems to be hearing the same thing and on Friday provided an update on Kittle's contract situation. "There remains a pretty significant disconnect philosophically between the 49ers and George Kittle's camp. The 49ers believe they want to reset the tight end market and give him a great tight end deal.

$198.2 million. That's the salary cap figure that NFL decision-makers have been working with since the limit was set in March. Actually, they had been working with a number in that realm since long before that, as teams figured the salary cap would reach close to $200 million in 2020. With so much uncertainty heading into the upcoming season, as the league pushes forward to play amidst a pandemic, NFL owners are pushing for a lower salary cap number, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. No, not just beyond this year. Including 2020. Owners are reportedly proposing to lower the salary cap for this season and 2021 to partially offset any losses due to the potential (and likely) absence of fans within stadiums. Such a move could create
