All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner participated in the 49ers annual State of the Franchise event alongside tight end George Kittle and commentator Greg Papa, and was asked about the thought of having fans back at Levi's Stadium, especially for the much-anticipated Week Three matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

"That's going to be a special moment," said Warner, who embraced the possibility, stating that he thrives off the energy that fans bring to the stadium.

After a season without fans for the most part and having to play some home games in Arizona, the 49ers are finally ready to welcome back fans for the upcoming season.

In addition, the high vaccination rates have allowed for a more normal offseason for the team, as practicing in team huddles has become an actual possibility.

In the last season with fans, the 49ers went 13-3, winning the NFC Championship game at home and reaching the Super Bowl.

Team President Al Guido was certainly excited about bringing fans back to the stadium, which he expressed at the beginning of Wednesday night's event.

"We're looking forward to having thousands and thousands of people back to watch our team," Guido said.

"DeMeco came up with his own slogan—S.W.A.R.M.," Warner said. The word is an acronym, of course. "Swarm" seems to describe San Francisco's speedy and talented defense perfectly. "Special work ethic and relentless mindset," Warner continued. "That's been his thing for our defense, and we'll probably just roll with that." Wait, wouldn't that be S.W.E.R.M.? Or maybe even

The San Francisco 49ers pared down their roster this week, making multiple cuts and moves. There were a few surprises, but for the most part, things went as expected. One question that remains, however, is who will be returning punts? Most believe second-year wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk would be the most effective punt returner. He did it in college, and has game-breaking ability. But do you really want one of your star wideouts returning punts, and increasing his chances of being injured? Head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the topic this week. In an interview with
