Joe Staley campaigns to get 49ers guard Laken Tomlinson voted to the Pro Bowl

Dec 11, 2019 at 2:18 PM--


San Francisco 49ers tackle Joe Staley has been selected to six Pro Bowls over his illustrious 13-year NFL career. On Wednesday, he took the time to campaign to get teammates Laken Tomlinson to his first Pro Bowl.

With fan voting closing on Thursday, Keiana Martin asked Staley on 49ers Live which potentially-overlooked teammate is most deserving for a Pro Bowl nod. Staley campaigned for the guard in what looked like a 49ers public service announcement.

"He's a guy that no one blows up," Staley said. "No one shows love to the offensive linemen but Laken is playing terrific football this season. He's setting the tone in the run game. He's been super consistent. He's putting in a ton of hard work this year. He's one of the main reasons why, offensively, we're putting up the numbers we are. It's because of his consistent performance.

"So go out and vote Laken Tomlinson to his first Pro Bowl because he's deserving of it, and he's an unbelievable human being, and he's an unbelievable player. Please, please, please go vote for him."


Fans can vote at the official 2020 Pro Bowl ballot or by using the hashtag #ProBowlVote on Twitter with the player's name or Twitter username.

49ers' Nick Bosa, Kyle Juszczyk among top vote-getters for Pro Bowl

Voting for the upcoming Pro Bowl has been underway for a while now. The NFL released some stats on the leading vote-getters so far. Two San Francisco 49ers currently lead their respective positions. Kyle Juszczyk leads all fullbacks with 70,362 fan votes. Nick Bosa leads NFC defensive ends with 68,143 votes. Juszczyk, a nine-year veteran, has been named to the last five Pro Bowls, with the first coming in 2016. He is widely considered to be the best fullback in the NFL. Although, his 62.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade this season is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign. Bosa is proving to be even more dominant than he was in his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. He has already surpassed his rookie sack total of nine with a

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said his star wide receiver, Deebo Samuel, is expected to miss one to two weeks with a groin strain. Don't tell Samuel it could take him two weeks, though. The team's leading receiver is betting on the lower end of his coach's estimate. On Wednesday, Samuel joined CBS Sports HQ and was asked if he expects to return for Week 14's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals after missing this weekend's battle against the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field. "Of course," Samuel responded. "It's only going to take a week, so [I'll] be back next week." That's good news for the 49ers, who are surging right now, having won three straight games and four of their last five. After starting 3-5, Samuel's squad is now 6-5 and

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 Dunlap. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »
