49ers work out S Johnathan Cyprien, four others as WR Jaron Brown and C Hroniss Grasu visit

Aug 18, 2020 at 3:30 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers were finally able to host wide receiver Jaron Brown for a visit. He wasn't the only one in Santa Clara, though. The team worked out safety Johnathan Cyprien and several other defensive players.

Below is a list of those who participated in Tuesday's workout, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

  • S Johnathan Cyprien
  • DB Evan Foster
  • LB/S Kemal Ishmael
  • DB Ronnell Perkins
  • LB Gabe Sewell

Joining Brown for a visit was center Hroniss Grasu. Wilson reports that Brown worked out for the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network was the first to report the 49ers' interest in working out Brown, a former Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks wideout.

The Jacksonville Jaguars made Cyprien a second-round draft pick out of FIU in 2013. He has also played for the Tennessee Titans and spent last season between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons.

Cyprien has racked up 513 tackles, 12 for a loss, three sacks, five quarterback hits, two interceptions, and 16 passes defensed in six NFL seasons. A torn ACL cost him the entire 2018 season.

The Chicago Bears made Grasu a third-round draft pick out of Oregon in 2015. He's had two stints with the Baltimore Ravens, and also played for the Miami Dolphins and Titans.

Grasu has 18 game appearances and 13 starts through four NFL seasons. He spent 2016 on injured reserve.

San Francisco is dealing with several injuries at both wide receiver and center. Second-year receiver Jalen Hurd suffered a torn ACL on Sunday, ending his season. Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr. are also temporarily sidelined.

Starting center Weston Richburg is likely to miss the start of the regular season while his replacement, Ben Garland, left Monday's practice early with what the team reported to be an ankle injury.

Kyle Juszczyk is just a couple of weeks away from hitting free agency, and from the discussion on Monday's The Pat McAfee Show, it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers fullback believes he will get to test the market. This is the second time Juszczyk will be a free agent. He signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers in 2017 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. "Honestly, there really is so much that goes into it," Juszczyk told Pat McAfee. "Money, without a doubt, is one of the biggest things. I'm not going to be the guy that sits here and tells you that no, money doesn't matter because this is life, man. It's a business. Money is probably the No. 1 factor, but it's not the only factor. There's a lot. "Things like, can this

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they

Since losing his sister, Ella, to death by suicide on the morning of January 23, 2018, San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Solomon Thomas—the first draft pick of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era—has worked hard to spread awareness of the importance of mental health. It's a topic that other NFL stars, like Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, have started to speak up about. "I think that is important to be vulnerable, to be genuine, and to be transparent," Prescott said in an interview last year while discussing the death of his older brother. "That goes a long way when you are a leader, and your voice is being heard by so many, and you can
