Emmanuel Sanders on joining 49ers: ‘I’m looking forward to get out to San Fran and showcasing my talent’

Oct 22, 2019 at 12:49 PM--

Michael Spencer of CBS in Denver caught up with new San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders as he left the Broncos facility after learning he had been traded.

"It's hard. Any time you break up, you leave a place, its tough," Sanders said. "We definitely had a great run out here in Denver. I had a lot of great times, but obviously, all good things come to an end. I'm looking forward to get out to San Fran and showcasing my talent and meeting the guys. Hopefully, add my explosiveness, my capabilities to their system, and really try to win."

The 49ers sent third- and fourth-round picks in next year's draft to the Broncos in exchange for Sanders and a fifth-round pick.

Sanders was asked if San Francisco seems like an ideal landing spot for him.

"Yeah," he responded. "We kind of run a similar offense, and just talking to Rich (Scangarello), he was pretty much just telling me that it's the same offense, different concepts, but I'll be able to pick it up easy. So waiting on them to call me right now, and we'll see when I'm going to get out there and get my physical and get acclimated with the system."

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach was asked what he sees from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who isn't worried about recovering from an ACL injury this offseason. "I think Jimmy had an unbelievable year last year," Shanahan said. "When you look at him statistically, just percentages and stuff of what he did, he's extremely accurate, kept us in some very good situations, and won a few games for us, too. He had a number of games where he had to come out huge on some 3rd-and-longs, some last-minute drives, and make some big plays that won us some games." Shanahan noted Garoppolo's improvement from last offseason, to the start of the regular

John Lynch says 49ers adding Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk made for a 'tremendous draft'

As NFL teams continue to practice social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Francisco 49ers are holding their State of the Franchise this week — virtually. General manager John Lynch spoke with the voice of the 49ers, Greg Papa, as part of the event, and discussed the team's two first-round picks in April's draft — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. San Francisco selected Kinlaw out of South Carolina with the No. 14 overall pick. The team initially owned the No. 13 overall selection, thanks to the trade that sent DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts, but moved down one spot and still acquired the player they coveted. "Going in, I would say, with the 13th pick, we had probably three guys that we were going
