49ers ‘unequivocally denounce’ fan who sent racist remarks to Cardinals safety Budda Baker

Sep 15, 2020 at 4:00 PM--


On Monday, Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker shared a message he received from an alleged San Francisco 49ers fan, who spewed offensive and racist remarks following Sunday's game between the two teams at Levi's Stadium. The user's icon in the screenshot shared by Baker featured retired tackle Joe Staley's jersey number, making it safe to assume that the individual is a fan of the Bay Area team.


The 49ers today denounced the individual, stating that the team is working to identify the individual and ban him from all future team games and events.

"The San Francisco 49ers unequivocally denounce the racist messages sent to Budda Baker," the team said via a statement posted to social media. "The individual who sent the messages does not represent the 49ers or the Faithful. Per team policy, we are working to identify this person and will ban them from all 49ers games and events.

"Incidents like this demonstrate how much work remains to be done to address racism and hate in our society. We remain steadfast in our commitment to that work."


The fan seemed to take issue with the hit Baker made on the 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, near the end of the first half of Sunday's game. Kittle suffered a knee sprain but continued playing in the second half. The Cardinals ended up winning the season opener 24-20.

Team reporter Keiana Martin probably summed up most fans' feelings about the incident and the 49ers' response.


49ers CEO Jed York also responded to the statement.

Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's
