Regarding his recovery, Greenlaw gave a positive update to host Laura Britt.


"It's a long, long, slow process," Greenlaw said in front of the audience at the California Theatre in San Jose. "I'm feeling really, really good, though. I'm happy to be able to walk on the stage, actually. It's been about three months now since the injury. I just recently got out of the boot, and just, slowly, every day, just rehabbing, getting the strength, getting the mobility in it.

"And yeah, just doing whatever it takes to be able to get back on the field as soon as possible."


San Francisco selected Greenlaw out of Arkansas in the fifth round (No. 148 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. He recorded 120 tackles, including five for a loss, four quarterback hits, 1.5 sacks, and four passes defensed in 15 starts with the 49ers last season, playing 89 percent of the defensive snaps, per Pro Football Reference.

Greenlaw is working his way back and gearing up for his sixth NFL season.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner was visibly heartbroken when his teammate and friend, Dre Greenlaw, left Super Bowl LVIII with a torn Achilles. Greenlaw's energy is crucial to the 49ers' defense, and his absence in the second half likely contributed to their overtime defeat. Greenlaw underwent successful surgery on February 15 and has since embarked on a long road to recovery. While he hopes to rejoin his teammates for Week 1 of the upcoming season, it's more realistic that he will start the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. When asked how he is supporting Greenlaw in his recovery, Warner responded, "Just being there for him, really. Kind

The San Francisco 49ers are eager to sign Brandon Aiyuk to a long-term deal, believing he can continue to be a number-one receiver and a focal point in an offense filled with playmakers. However, the negotiations aren't progressing as smoothly as both sides had hoped. Aiyuk didn't report to the 49ers' mandatory minicamp this week, subjecting himself to possible fines. The receiver is looking at the big picture, knowing that his absence sends a message and could make him money in the long run. About $100,000 in potential fines is a drop in the bucket when he is looking to become one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings recently signed Justin Jefferson to a market-resetting contract averaging $35 million annually. Three other receivers
