It was believed that San Francisco 49ers safety Tashaun Gipson was mulling over the possibility of retiring from the NFL. The 32-year-old defender has played 11 seasons in the league, spending 2022 with the Niners after two seasons with the Chicago Bears.

According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, Gipson plans to play in 2023. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week. Should the two sides agree to a mutually beneficial contract, San Francisco is interested in bringing the safety back.


"I think he wants to play, and we'd like to have him back," general manager John Lynch said last week at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Gipson is one of 20 49ers players scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next Wednesday. The defensive back stepped in as the team's starter in 2022, pairing with second-year safety Talanoa Hufanga.

The Cleveland Browns signed Gipson (6-1, 207) as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming in 2012. He registered 61 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a quarterback hit, eight passes defensed, and five interceptions through 17 starts with the 49ers last season, per Pro Football Reference.

Gipson has also spent time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans.

On Thursday night, Brock Purdy joined several former San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks at the Dwight Clark Legacy Series event in San Jose. During the event, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, one of the moderators, asked the 24-year-old to rewind a couple of years and reflect on how he burst onto the NFL scene in 2022. Purdy's first significant playing time came when the 49ers lost two quarterbacks that season—first Trey Lance and then Jimmy Garoppolo. Purdy stepped in for Garoppolo against the Miami Dolphins, unaware that he would be the starter moving forward. "Jimmy went down, and they're like, 'All right, you're up,'" Purdy shared. "So I'm in tune to what we're doing against Miami's defense and stuff on the sidelines. And so, when they said that I was
