49ers Notebook: Kittle/Bosa ‘20, players say hello to The Faithful, fan asks Kittle for a TV, QB and 4 WRs to work out

Aug 25, 2020 at 7:13 PM--

Here are other San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you.

Kittle/Bosa '20

George Kittle had been pushing a Garoppolo/Kittle '20 ticket. Then Trent Taylor campaigned to be the quarterback's running mate.

Kittle sat down for Tuesday's Zoom call with reporters wearing a mask boasting his new ticket for 2020: Kittle/Bosa '20.

"If Jimmy has options, I guess I'll have options, as well," Kittle explained. "This seems like a strong suit for me. You've got quads of the century, so I think this will be a good running mate."

Players say hello to The Faithful

49ers players walked by a camera set up at the team facility, prompting them to say hello to the fan base, The Faithful. The 49ers posted the video on social media yesterday, and it's kind of a fun watch.

49ers will practice at Levi's Stadium on Friday

Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the 49ers would hold Friday's practice on the field of Levi's Stadium.

"I don't expect it to be much different, but it gives all our guys a chance to go through the process of what you do in preseason," Shanahan said.

Before someone asks in the comments or (gasp) sends me an email, no, fans cannot attend.

Fan asks Kittle for a TV

What's the strangest request Kittle has received since signing his five-year, $75 million extension?

"Someone Venmo requested me so they could buy a new HD TV so they could watch Jimmy G's chin line on Sundays," Kittle shared. "I said, 'That's not my problem. Thank you for asking, though.'"

Staley inducted into the CMU Hall of Fame

CMU named retired 49ers tackle Joe Staley among the six athletes inducted into its Marcy Weston Central Michigan University Athletics Hall of Fame this year. Due to the current pandemic, however, the actual ceremony won't be held until 2020.

Congratulations, Joe!

49ers work out QB with four receivers

You probably heard that the 49ers are working out four wide receivers, as reported here. The quarterback throwing them the football will be veteran journeyman Josh Johnson, most recently of the XFL's Los Angeles Wildcats, according to Howard Balzer of 590 The Fan. He spent the 2012 offseason with the 49ers, then under head coach Jim Harbaugh, and was on and off San Francisco's roster in 2014.

One of the receivers, Kevin White spoke with Josina Anderson and revealed that his workout, and presumably everyone else's, is on Wednesday.

White tells Anderson his mindset "is to kill the workout and to show them that I haven't lost the passion, a step or the chip."

Nick Bosa was one of several ("several" may be an understatement) San Francisco 49ers who suffered injuries last season. The young pass rusher's injury was season-ending. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 2. Bosa appears to be recovering nicely. On Thursday, he posted a new workout video on social media, which was captured and shared by our friends over at @OurSF49ers_. The video shows Bosa running with a weight sled tied to his waist, and he doesn't appear to be hampered by his left knee injury. Nick Bosa's ACL recovery looks to be going amazing, you love to see it 🙌🏼

The NFL's offseason program was scheduled to begin on Monday. Players from several teams came together and opted out of the voluntary portions of Phase 1, deciding to forgo in-person workouts due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. San Francisco 49ers players had not yet made a similar statement. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has been pushing for an alteration to the offseason schedule, hoping for no in-person activities until training camp in July, as was the case last offseason. However, the NFL has been pushing for in-person activities to begin after just two weeks of virtual sessions. On Wednesday, the league announced a restructure to the offseason programs. Now, there will be no on-field work until May 17. That will be restricted to no-contact drills,
