49ers’ Taybor Pepper delivers trash talk to Seahawks’ DK Metcalf using ASL

Even the San Francisco 49ers' long snapper is feeling a bit chippy after the team's 28-16 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. If you look at the video below very closely, Taybor Pepper was among the 49ers players waving goodbye to DK Metcalf after the Seahawks' wide receiver was ejected from the game.

The frustrated Metcalf was involved in a skirmish with Fred Warner after the 49ers linebacker secured a game-sealing interception off Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock. Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir also got involved, leading to the ejection of both Metcalf and Lenoir.

Pepper's response on social media was, "14 f--ked around and found out." He delivered the message via American Sign Language.

In October, Metcalf revealed that he had started learning American Sign Language.

"I kept getting flagged for my mouthing," the Seahawks receiver told Rich Eisen.

Metcalf first used American Sign Language in a November contest against the Los Angeles Rams, signing "44, my son," after beating cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon for a touchdown.

He did the same against the Dallas Cowboys, signing "standing on business."

After Sunday's loss to the 49ers, when asked if the incident resulted from frustration, Metcalf said, "If you want to call it frustration, yeah, it was frustration. But from my side, he hit me in the back of the head. So I just retaliated from that."

Warner responded more humorously to what sparked the exchange, providing a different account of the events, saying, "Yeah, I don't know what happened, man. I told him he tackles really well, and then, for some reason, he didn't like that. I guess what happened, happened, and it's unfortunate. (He's) got to learn to keep his composure, but happy we came out with the dub."

49ers insider weighs in on Deebo Samuel vs. Brandon Aiyuk debate

By David Bonilla
Feb 16

Brock Purdy has just completed his second NFL season, which means he's under contract with the San Francisco 49ers for two more years. The team is allowed to begin negotiating a contract extension after the 2024 season. With a salary cap hit of around $1 million next season, Purdy's contract provides the 49ers with some flexibility, allowing them to allocate funds elsewhere on the roster. However, the 49ers are undoubtedly looking ahead, aware that Purdy will eventually demand a larger share of the team's cap space. With the next significant contract anticipated for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, a debate has arisen regarding the long-term likelihood of retaining both Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. With some big financial decisions looming, it might only be feasible to

Game manager or game changer? RG3 weighs in on 49ers QB Brock Purdy

The debate between game manager versus game-changer continues, even after Brock Purdy helped guide the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. While the quarterback has done everything asked of him, aided by his talented supporting cast, there remain skeptics who persist in downplaying his achievements. Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, who once played in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, is not among Purdy's doubters. Speaking to Jason McCourty on Griffin's podcast, "RG3 and The Ones," Griffin shared his thoughts on the 49ers' quarterback. Griffin reflects on Purdy's season and his Super Bowl appearance, insisting it's challenging to come away from his performances believing the 24-year-old quarterback is merely a game manager. "There

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Graziano: Salary cap situation may force 49ers to consider trading Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla

All eyes will be on Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation this offseason. As the San Francisco 49ers cleaned out their locker rooms last week, the wide receiver was asked if he hopes to remain with the team that drafted him, to which he replied, "If that's the right move, yeah." The "right move" means securing a contract extension that places Aiyuk among the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The 49ers have already invested significantly in Aiyuk's teammate, Deebo Samuel. But can they afford to retain both? Aiyuk is entering his fifth NFL season, and the 49ers exercised the fifth-year option for the receive, keeping him under contract through the end of the 2024 season. If the
