Trent Taylor looks healthy, Kendrick Bourne says ‘beast bout to be unleashed’

Jul 9, 2020 at 7:30 AM--


The foot injury to second-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel could add pressure to other San Francisco 49ers wideouts, like rookie Brandon Aiyuk. That will especially be true if Samuel's recovery creeps into the regular season.

The 49ers might be receiving some reinforcements, though. Jalen Hurd missed his rookie campaign and is an unknown commodity heading into the 2020 season. Then you have Trent Taylor, who, like Hurd, didn't play a snap last season and landed on injured reserve.

Taylor, 26, has been working to return after suffering a foot injury last year, similar to the one sustained by Samuel. Complications from multiple surgeries kept Taylor out for the season, though.

Taylor remains in the Nashville area, where he is training with teammate and All-Pro tight end George Kittle, among others. Our friends over at @TheSFNiners posted a couple of videos of Taylor's offseason training, and the receiver looks well on his way to having the same burst he showed off during his impressive rookie campaign in 2017.


Fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne sounds confident that his teammate will make an impact during the upcoming season.


Even though he looks good in the clips above, Taylor is taking a cautious approach in his return.

"I don't know if you would say that I'm ready to go out and play a football game," Taylor told The Athletic last month. "I mean, I could if I had to. But mainly, I'm just steadily getting back to normal right now. It feels good. My foot's able to run routes and make cuts right now. So I'm real happy to be back doing that."

Taylor hauled in 43 passes for 430 yards with two touchdowns in 2017. Offseason back surgery limited him in 2018, and, as mentioned, he missed all of last season.

San Francisco made Taylor a fifth-round draft pick out of Louisiana Tech in 2017.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers engaged in contract discussions with left tackle Trent Williams last week.

While the discussions didn't result in a new contract for the eight-time Pro Bowl selection, it sends a clear message that re-signing Williams is among the team's top priorities. #49ers and Pro Bowl LT Trent

One way or another, offensive tackle Trent Williams is about to become an even richer man. It could be with the San Francisco 49ers, which traded for the offensive lineman last year to replace a retiring Joe Staley, or it could be with another team. The 49ers had contract talks with Williams' representatives before the team's final game of the season but couldn't come to an agreement. The veteran tackle admits that his preferred offseason outcome would be a return to San Francisco but is curious about his free-agency value. "It's been 11 years in the league,"

PFF: Trent Williams is the one free agent the 49ers can't afford to lose

Trent Williams proved to be a good replacement for retired offensive tackle Joe Staley. In fact, Williams anchoring the offensive line's left side looked like an upgrade, and his addition was a bright spot in an otherwise depressing injury-plagued season for the defending NFC champions. The only problem is that the San Francisco 49ers knew they were getting Williams with just one season left on his contract. Now, they'll need to find a way to ensure the veteran tackle becomes one of the top-paid offensive linemen in the league. Williams is one of nearly 40 Niners who played last season on the final year of their contracts. Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus recently took a look at the 32 NFL teams and
