Ex-49ers guard Mike Person announces retirement

Jun 28, 2020 at 11:08 AM--


Former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Mike Person on Sunday announced his retirement from the NFL, according to 406mtsports.com. He spent the past two seasons with San Francisco and started at right guard in Super Bowl LIV in February.

The 49ers released Person, a nine-year veteran, in March, resulting in a $2.5 million salary-cap savings. The offensive lineman signed a three-year deal with San Francisco on March 3, 2019.

"I just feel like now is the right time," Person told 406mtsports.com. "Obviously I wish it would have ended differently, especially this past season. You take a beating, and anybody who's played knows that. At some point you just have to tell yourself now is the right time."

Person battled through a neck injury late last season.

"My kids are getting older and most likely I'd spend the entire season away from them if I were to sign with someone," added Person. "I've missed too much already."

The 49ers made Person a seventh-round selection out of Montana State in 2011. The offensive lineman spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, and two stints with the Indianapolis Colts before re-joining San Francisco on May 9, 2018.

Person has 73 game appearances and 48 starts through his nine NFL seasons. He appeared in three playoff games.

Mike Phillips of FanSided endeavored to name the worst call against each NFL team in their history. So naturally, I skipped past 31 NFL teams and headed straight to the call that went against the San Francisco 49ers. The FanSided contributor chose the holding call against Ronnie Lott in the NFC Championship Game during the 1983 season. San Francisco had won just one Super Bowl at that point and was fighting for its second Vice Lombardi Trophy. Washington had jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the third quarter and looked well on its way to easily eliminating the 49ers. The 49ers started mounting a fourth-quarter comeback, though. Joe Montana hit Mike Wilson for a score.

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

By David Bonilla

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver
