San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch sat down with reporters at the owners' meetings in Arizona on Monday morning. One of the tidbits he offered is that the team has signed offensive tackle Matt Pryor.


The Philadelphia Eagles made Pryor (6-7, 332) a sixth-round selection (No. 206 overall) out of TCU in 2018. He has started 24 of his 60 game appearances in the NFL, starting 14 over the past two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

This past season, 362 of Pryor's 576 total snaps came at either left (249) or right tackle (113), per Pro Football Focus. He allowed 31 pressures and six sacks in 388 pass-blocking snaps in 2022. The offensive lineman earned his best overall grade (76.5) from the analytics site in 2021 when he allowed only eight pressures and no sacks in 241 pass-blocking snaps.

A 28-year-old native of Lakewood, California, Pryor appeared in 46 games (32 starts) during his five years (2013-17) at TCU and earned Associated Press Second-Team All-Big-12 honors as a senior in 2017.

The San Francisco 49ers trailed the Detroit Lions by 17 points at halftime in last season's NFC Championship Game. To many, it looked like their quest for a trip to the Super Bowl was over. However, the mentality inside the 49ers locker room was different. While there weren't discussions about mounting a comeback, one thing was clear: the team was embarrassed. "I was so angry, I couldn't think about winning or losing," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared at the 49ers' "State of the Franchise" event. "That wasn't the thing. It was like, 'Guys, if we're going out, we're not going out like this. When we come out, hey, we're gonna make this a problem.'" The 17-point deficit wasn't the focus.

The San Francisco 49ers are excited about their offseason improvements, believing they've done enough to remain competitive and make another Super Bowl run. Of course, every NFL team is optimistic about its chances in June. They still have to go out and perform for 17 games, hoping they're competitive enough to earn a playoff spot. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan would prefer the NFL Draft take place before free agency, allowing the team to add rookie contributors first and then spend money to fill remaining needs. Unfortunately, free agency comes first, necessitating teams to consider the depth of specific positions in the draft while not knowing who they might acquire and trying to fill any potential gaps ahead of time. The 49ers had to

Fans are thrilled to see Jauan Jennings, the San Francisco 49ers' dynamic and spirited wide receiver, locked in for at least the next two seasons. The team has signed him to a contract extension worth up to $15.39 million over the next two years. "I think every single person in NFL that watches tape, every general manager, every scout, anybody that watches tape, they look at Jauan's film, they're like, 'Holy cow, this guy is one of one,'" tight end George Kittle said last week. "His mindset and his attitude when he's on a football field is completely different. ... He just is very violent in the way that he plays the game, which you don't see in all
