49ers re-sign long snapper Taybor Pepper to a 2-year deal

Feb 4, 2021 at 8:40 AM--

Long snapper Taybor Pepper revealed via Twitter on Thursday morning that he has re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers. It is a two-year deal, according to his agent.

The signing means that the 49ers' specialists — Pepper, kicker Robbie Gould, and punter Mitch Wishnowsky — are all signed through the 2022 season.

The Green Bay Packers signed Pepper as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in January of 2017. He spent time with the Miami Dolphins before signing with the 49ers on September 30, 2020.

Pepper, 26, appeared in 12 games for San Francisco this past season. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent next month.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.

Pepper originally entered the NFL after signing with the Green Bay Packers to a Reserve/Future contract on January 27, 2017. He appeared in four games for Green Bay in 2017 prior to being placed on the Injured Reserve List on November 3, 2017. He later signed a Reserve/Future contract with the New York Giants on December 31, 2018, and was waived by the Giants on August 31, 2019. Pepper signed with the Miami Dolphins on September 2, 2019, where he went on to appear in all 16 games for the Dolphins. He was waived by Miami on May 27, 2020.

A 26-year-old native of Saline, MI, Pepper attended Michigan State University where he played in all 54 games at long snapper and registered 10 tackles on special teams. His 54 games played for the Spartans were tied for the most among any player in school history.

John Lynch says Deebo Samuel will be with the 49ers for a long time

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is becoming one of the NFL's biggest stars. He racked up 1,770 all-purpose yards this season and 15 total touchdowns (6 receiving, 8 rushing, 1 passing). Samuel has frustrated opposing defenses as a receiver, as a rusher, and even tossed a touchdown pass this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel is in his third NFL season, which means it's time to start thinking about a contract extension for the 25-year-old star. He's positioned himself to be among the highest-paid players at his position. However, Samuel is unique in that he does so much more than just playing wide receiver. "Deebo's going to be well compensated, and we plan on him being a Niner for a long time," general manager John Lynch said

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup. Although, he also

'The production speaks for itself': Marc Ross says 49ers must exercise Nick Bosa's fifth-year option

It's time for NFL teams to start thinking about exercising the fifth-year options of their first-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft. That includes some pretty big names, like Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. The window to exercise those options opened on Monday, with the deadline set for May 2. NFL Media analyst Marc Ross went through each first-round pick from 2019, voting "Yes" or "No" to indicate whether he feels their respective teams should exercise the fifth-year option. For the San Francisco 49ers, that means looking at the possibilities for defensive end Nick Bosa. This one seems like a no-brainer. Bosa is the team's best pass rusher and its best player on the defensive side of the ball. He is a foundational piece on defense, and the unit's
