49ers officially agree to terms with Rich Scangarello after Jets try to steal him away

Jan 21, 2021 at 7:19 AM--


The New York Jets may have nearly poached another talented coach away from the San Francisco 49ers — this time before he was officially a part of Kyle Shanahan's staff. Tom Pelissero reports that San Francisco officially agreed to terms with Rich Scangarello to return to the team as its quarterbacks coach. However, Robert Saleh and the Jets made a "hard push" to steal him away.


Saleh, San Francisco's former defensive coordinator, has been working to build his coaching staff in New York. That included former 49ers assistants Mike LaFleur, who will serve as his offensive coordinator, and John Benton, who will serve as the offensive line coach.

Scangarello left the 49ers after the 2018 season to become the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. He served as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles this past season.

Before his two-year stint as the 49ers' quarterbacks coach from 2017-18, Scangarello spent time as an assistant with the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders. He is credited as the coach most responsible for getting Jimmy Garoppolo up to speed on the offense after San Francisco traded for the quarterback in 2017.

49ers WR Travis Benjamin after a year away: "I can't wait to get back to football"

The San Francisco 49ers signed speedy former Browns and Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin to a one-year, $1.05 million contract last April. He was excited to be reunited with head coach Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco was so confident that Benjamin could contribute that it was willing to trade away its fastest wideout, Marquise Goodwin, during the draft. Just over a month later, tragedy hit Benjamin's family. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has been going strong for nearly a year now, had hit home. The receiver lost his 77-year-old grandmother to complications from the virus. That changed Benjamin's outlook. "I was ready for the season,"



Orlovsky believes 49ers become Super Bowl contenders with Carson Wentz

There is no indication that the San Francisco 49ers are serious about Carson Wentz. There was a report that the team inquired about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, but that may have just been general manager John Lynch and company doing their due diligence. It's always worth knowing the going rate for a former starting NFL quarterback, after all. Wentz isn't a fan-favorite trade candidate either. He was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league last season. His 65.0 overall Pro Football Focus grade was a career-low. One ESPN analyst feels Wentz paired with the 49ers could be a game-changer, though. Former quarterback Dan Orlovsky recently said that the Eagles passer with the Indianapolis Colts or San Francisco would make either team a Super Bowl



ESPN names two 49ers as 'sneaky-good' free agents, predicts landing spots for Deshaun Watson

ESPN's NFL experts answered some offseason-related questions, including identifying some "sneaky-good" free agents and predicting a destination for disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Two San Francisco 49ers impending free agents were labeled as "sneaky-good" players that NFL teams should covet once the bidding wars kick off next month. That is assuming neither is re-signed before then. Matt Bowen named defensive end Kerry Hyder, who racked up a career-high sack total last season, his first with San Francisco. "Hyder has traits as an edge rusher off



Grateful Richard Sherman calls his time with 49ers 'very positive'

It's very clear that San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman expects to be with another team in 2021. He'll hit free agency in a month, and the three-time first-team All-Pro will begin his hunt for one last contract before calling it a career. "I only want to play two more (seasons)," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith last week. "I want to get on a competitive team. I think I still have a lot to give to the game. I think I still have a lot that I want to accomplish, and I think I can go out there and help a defense come together like it should, and reach their potential, reach the heights that the defenses that I've played on have
