Bryant Young expects 49ers’ sixth championship to ‘happen soon’

Jun 23, 2020 at 5:27 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday that former defensive lineman Bryant Young will be 29th inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. Hall of Fame. Young spoke during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week and discussed the current 49ers and their quest to add to the trophy case.

The 49ers came close to winning a sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy in February, but fell just short.

"I've followed them very closely," Young told team reporter Keiana Martin with team CEO Jed York listening. "They're a very exciting team to watch. I loved how the chemistry of the team, the coaches, how the collaboration was there. The chemistry was great. They're just exciting to watch in a lot of ways. That defense, they caused a lot of problems and issues for a lot of offenses.

"We're hoping for (championship) number six, and boy, we're that close. I know we're that close, and it's going to happen soon."

Young won Super Bowl XXIX during his rookie campaign with the 49ers, and was a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2020 after eight years of eligibility.

Young, who retired in 2007, is the 49ers' franchise leader in career sacks with 89.5. The eight-time winner of the team's prestigious Len Eshmont Award racked up 627 tackles, 20 passes defensed, 12 forced fumbles, and seven fumble recoveries during his 14-year career, according to Pro Football Reference.

Former NFL defensive lineman Bryant Young this year will become the 29th inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame.

Linebacker Patrick Willis was among the 25 players listed as modern-era semifinalists in November of 2019 but, shockingly to some, did not make the trimmed-down list of 15 in January.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan expects Mohamed Sanu to be suited up and ready to help vs. Jets, if needed

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohammed Sanu, barring any complications, should join his new teammates tomorrow and practice with them for the first time since signing a one-year deal earlier this week. Tomorrow's practice will just be a walk-through. Typically, missing each full practice in the days preceding a game would reduce a player's chances of playing — especially a new player. Sanu, however, is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, having played within it during his time with the Atlanta Falcons. That, combined with the injury concerns at the position, could mean fans get to see Sanu out on the field against the New York

Reinforcements may be on the way for the injury-stricken San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is optimistic that the team will get wide receiver Deebo Samuel back next week — at least for practices. The coaching staff will use those practices to determine if the second-year receiver is healthy enough to play on October 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel, in June, suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot and has been working relentlessly to return to the football field. He is with the team at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. "I'm optimistic he'll be back next week," Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "He had a real good week. Last week, hitting the rehab hard with all those guys, and just being able to watch him work out here on the side,
