Jimmie Ward asks Jason Verrett if he’ll return to the 49ers

Jan 17, 2021 at 11:43 AM--


San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward recently asked his teammate, cornerback Jason Verrett, whether he'll return to the team in 2021. The two appeared on Instagram Live, and the exchange was shared by our friends over at @TheSFNiners (h/t to Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports).

"You coming back?" Ward asked Verrett while laughing.

"We gonna see," Verrett responded. "We gonna see. We gonna see."

That's when Ward campaigned for the 49ers' general manager to make sure Verrett is taken care of financially and re-signed.

"I'm pretty sure word is going to get out to John Lynch and [head coach Kyle Shanahan]," Ward continued while adding that he knows Verrett is interested in returning.


Many questioned Verrett's re-signing last offseason, but the oft-injured cornerback stayed healthy all year and was a pleasant surprise. He appeared in 13 games last season, compiling 60 tackles, two tackles for a loss, two interceptions, and seven passes defensed.

Verrett is one of several 49ers defensive backs who were playing on the final year of their contracts. Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, and Ahkello Witherspoon are just some of the names scheduled to become free agents at the start of the new league year. The salary cap-strapped Niners will have some difficult decisions to make this offseason.

Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, one of the best to play the position, recently spoke with Fox News and shared his thoughts on what the Niners' offseason focus should be. San Francisco was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. It followed up the impressive run with a six-win campaign in 2020. The 49ers hope to rebound in 2021, and that will start with the upcoming draft. San Francisco owns the No. 12 overall pick. While some feel that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch might try to target a rookie quarterback, Willis believes his former team can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason. That starts with adding a pass rusher to line up opposite the team's young star, defensive end Nick

49ers, Kyle Juszczyk had 'pleasant' talks about a potential return, await salary-cap clarification

By David Bonilla

Kyle Juszczyk's course remains set for free agency. The San Francisco 49ers hope to retain their highly-valued fullback. That might be difficult given the upcoming salary-cap constraints due to the pandemic's impact on the 2020 season. The 49ers have several impending free agents they would like to bring back. Juszczyk has been such a fixture within head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense over the past four years that it's difficult to imagine it without him. Juszczyk is already the highest-paid fullback by a significant margin, which isn't likely to change with his next contract. Shanahan may look to rework his offense to be less dependent on a dominant fullback like Juszczyk. However, ideally, Juszczyk would stay put. Josina Anderson, the host of the Undefined
