Kyle Shanahan doesn’t rule out 49ers signing Mohamed Sanu, discusses Ziggy Ansah

Sep 14, 2020 at 4:28 PM--


Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Sunday's report that the San Francisco 49ers plan to host veteran pass rusher Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah this week for a workout.

"I've always been a fan of Ziggy," Shanahan told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "Playing against him and stuff, he's always been a real good player. With (defensive line coach) Kris (Kocurek) having such a good relationship with him over the years, coaching him in Detroit, so we've always kept in contact with him.

"I don't know what the plan is yet, but we're bringing him in tomorrow to work him out, see where he's at, and we'll see how it goes."

Ansah has recorded 228 tackles, 50.5 sacks, four passes defensed, and 12 forced fumbles through his seven NFL seasons. He registered 18 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defensed, and two forced fumbles through 11 games with the Seahawks in 2019.

Shanahan was also asked about the possibility of bringing in some veteran wide receiver help given the injuries at the position. The coach was specifically asked about Mohamed Sanu.

"We'll see how these injuries go, but I love Sanu," Shanahan responded. "I mean, he's a hell of a player. Him being out there, it's always a possibility. We'll look into everything we have, though. We've got to know if our numbers are going to be up this week, which we don't have that settled yet. But I wouldn't rule that out at all.

"I mean, he's available, and he's definitely a guy that I respect, and I think everyone in this league respects. So, we'll see how it goes this week."

Sanu has caught 403 passes for 4,507 yards with 26 touchdowns through his eight NFL seasons. He registered 59 receptions for 520 yards with two touchdowns through 15 games with the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots in 2019.

Why Kyle Shanahan doesn't have the 49ers do wet-ball drills

By David Bonilla
Oct 24

Levi's Stadium is expected to be drenched from a downpour of rain when the San Francisco 49ers host the Indianapolis Colts tonight. The anticipation of rain will often lead to coaches holding wet-ball drills during practices. Head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't believe in doing that, however, and explained why this week. "I bring it up and talk to the players about it," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area. "So, they're all thinking about it mentally so they can get ready however it effects them. I know, at least when I played football, when I thought about the rain is when I dropped everything. So I try to not think about it, and try to catch it the same, try to do stuff. And I always felt, mentally, that was a lot better. You always thought it might slip and stuff, and you get



'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in
