Players hint at Isaac Bruce retirement

While he has not officially announced anything, all signs are pointing to 49ers wide receiver Isaac Bruce having played his final NFL game.

As if his changing out of his uniform and into sweatpants at the half of the 49ers' 28-6 win against his former team, the St. Louis Rams, two players seem certain that Bruce will retire. On their Twitter pages, cornerback Nate Clements gives a "shout out" to Bruce saying that he has retired. Linebacker Takeo Spikes also indicates the same thing saying "it has been a pleasure to play against & with him."

Bruce has played the last two seasons with San Francisco but his playing time this season was minimal as he gave way to the younger developing receivers on the team.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month.

That's quite a list of accomplishments. So why is Garoppolo ranked No. 5 on NFL.com's recent list of players under the most pressure in 2020? Adam Schein wrote that the 49ers' success couldn't be credited entirely to Garoppolo because of how talented the roster is. The NFL.com columnist calls it the "single best roster" in the

The NFL is entering an unpredictable territory. Teams will report to training camp later this month and do so amid a pandemic, which shows little to no sign of ending anytime soon. The league is taking precautions, however. The question is whether or not it will be enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19 throughout the NFL, potentially halting — or possibly ending — the season. The NFL wants to reduce the preseason schedule by two weeks, eliminating half the exhibition games. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA), however, would prefer that this year's preseason not be played at all. The players union voted last week in favor of not playing any
