49ers can hold tryouts after NFL lifts ban

Aug 12, 2020 at 6:27 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers, and every other NFL team, can finally hold tryouts with prospective additions to their rosters. The league informed teams on Tuesday that the ban on tryouts has been lifted, effective immediately, according to a report from NFL Media.

Tryouts were prohibited due to health concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. NFL teams were only allowed to bring players in for physicals, and even that required multiple tests for COVID-19.

Players will still have to undergo testing, undergoing the process three times, with each returning negative before taking part in a workout. Players who were on an NFL roster within 24 hours will only have to undergo two tests.

The 49ers will now be allowed to host eight players for workouts per day. Still, personnel must continue adhering to health protocols, including wearing protective equipment and remaining six feet away from the player at all times.

DeMeco Ryans just finished his first regular season as an NFL defensive coordinator. His players and colleagues know that an NFL team will come calling one day, looking to possibly make Ryans its head coach.

Not bad for the rookie coordinator who replaced Robert Saleh. All last offseason, head coach Kyle Shanahan expressed confidence in Ryans—almost seeming overconfident in his abilities to lead the defense. It would appear that trust paid off. Shanahan knows, eventually, he will receive that call from an NFL team. He knows another organization

Jones-Drew: Great defense, run game, Deebo Samuel can take playoff-bound 49ers far

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel called his San Francisco 49ers a "real dangerous" team heading into the postseason. "It's about to get scary," Samuel said in a post-game interview. NFL Media's Maurice Jones-Drew agrees. In the wide-open NFC playoffs, the 49ers could be one of the more intriguing teams. Most left them for dead after a 2-4 start to the season. However, they finished strong, winning eight of their last 11, including Sunday's thrilling 27-24 overtime victory to secure a playoff spot. Jones-Drew believes the 49ers have what it takes to make some noise and go as far as they
