More than 80 49ers players report for start of Phase Two of offseason program

May 17, 2021 at 1:02 PM--

There was some question about how many players would report to the San Francisco 49ers this week after a group of players opted to skip voluntary in-person workouts. The 49ers posted the following video showing several players, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and linebacker Fred Warner, reporting for work this morning.

In April, 49ers players joined those from other teams, saying that "many," at the advisement of the NFL Players Association, had opted to forgo in-person workouts due to continued concerns surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that more than 80 players arrived at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara this morning to start Phase Two of the offseason program. Organized team activities begin next week.

While the upcoming sessions are voluntary, it is worth noting that several 49ers players have bonuses linked to their participation in offseason workouts. Garoppolo leads the group with a $600,000 workout bonus. Five others — safety Jimmie Ward, guard Laken Tomlinson, tight end George Kittle, and defensive linemen Arik Armstead and Arden Key — have a $100,000 workout bonus in their contracts, per Running back Raheem Mostert has a workout bonus of $50,000.

The 49ers held a three-day minicamp this past weekend, but it only included rookies, a few players with a year of experience, and some others who were trying out for the roster. Among those trying out was veteran wide receiver Marqise Lee, whom the team signed today.

The San Francisco 49ers were the most injured team last season. That's a title they would like to avoid in 2021. However, it's been a rough last few weeks. The Niners lost running back Jeff Wilson Jr. to a torn meniscus in late May. He is not expected to return until midseason, possibly as late as November. Then on Monday, San Francisco lost offensive lineman Justin Skule to a torn ACL and safety Tarvarius Moore to a torn Achilles. The 49ers canceled Tuesday's practice out of an abundance of caution. The team had its final practice of organized team activities (OTAs) slated for Thursday and then a mandatory three-day minicamp next week. That won't happen now. Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Wednesday that those practices have been canceled as

49ers coaches impressed with Mohamed Sanu during offseason program

The wide receiver position might become an interesting training camp battle to keep an eye on. While Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel are near-locks to sit atop the depth chart, after that, there is a lot of uncertainty. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still waiting for someone to step up into that number three receiver role. Kendrick Bourne held that role last season but signed with the New England Patriots as a free agent. San Francisco had expressed an interest in bringing him back but wasn't going to get into a bidding war with a team like New England, which had a surplus of salary-cap space. RELATED:

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expects DeMeco Ryans to gamble more than Robert Saleh

When the 49ers line up on defense this season under new coordinator DeMeco Ryans, they might be taking more risks than they did over the past four seasons under the guidance of previous coordinator Robert Saleh. Saleh earned a reputation as one of the league's top defensive coordinators during his time with the 49ers, which he turned into his new opportunity as head coach of the New York Jets. But according to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Saleh liked to play it safe as a coordinator, which is something that could change this season now that Ryans is in charge. "I think you'll see DeMeco's personality come out a little bit more," Shanahan told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic
