Arik Armstead continues offseason training with a familiar ex-49ers defender

Jul 6, 2020 at 11:03 PM--


Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is working hard this offseason to prove that his team-leading 10-sack 2019 campaign was no fluke, and after signing a lucrative five-year deal to remain with the San Francisco 49ers. It looks like Armstead is training with a familiar face, too.

San Jose-area photographer Pierre Whitsey comes through again with some photos from San Jose State on Monday, showing Armstead training with former teammate DeForest Buckner.

The 49ers in March traded Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick, which, after trading down one spot, ended up becoming the selection of Buckner's replacement — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw.

You can indulge in a small sample of Whitsey's photos of the two defenders below, with a link to much more within the tweets themselves. Buckner isn't the only NFL defender with whom Armstead is seen practicing with and against.

Enjoy.

Jimmy Garoppolo jokingly throws 49ers PR under the bus while explaining offseason silence

Jimmy Garoppolo is obviously the type who prefers the focus to be on anything except him. That has been evident from previous seasons, and it was apparent this offseason, as the San Francisco 49ers quarterback remained relatively silent toward the outside world. Yes, there is a pandemic taking place, but other players have been made available to speak virtually to the media. To put this into perspective, Tuesday's video conference call with Garoppolo was the first opportunity the media has had to ask the quarterback about Joe Staley's retirement. Staley announced his retirement on April 25, well over three months ago. For those interested in Garoppolo's response, he said, "We'll miss him in the locker room. His character is
