Letter to 49ers fans from Jed York

Jul 25, 2011 at 11:31 AM--


Jed York issued the following letter (via email) to San Francisco 49ers fans today.

It brings me great pleasure to inform you that today a new Collective Bargaining Agreement was reached between the National Football League and the NFL Players Association. Many hours of hard and tedious work were put forth by both sides to lay the foundation for the continued growth and prosperity of the game we all love. As a passionate, life-long fan of both the NFL and the 49ers, I thank you for your patience during this process.

Throughout the offseason, the 49ers have remained deeply committed to building a championship caliber football team. In April, we acquired a draft class full of talented, high-character players that will help us excel both on the field and throughout the Bay Area community. Coach Harbaugh and his staff are eager to begin training camp in order to set the foundation for success this season and beyond.

In addition to a series of open training camp sessions in early August, we are excited about a new fan event we will hold in mid-August. 49ers Fan Fest will feature many of the games and entertainment typically featured during our annual Family Day, but this year the afternoon will be paired with the first open practice held at Candlestick Park in more than 20 years. This is a rare opportunity for you to have some fun, see the team workout, and also preview a number of stadium enhancements. Information regarding 49ers Fan Fest and our open training camp sessions will be available on 49ers.com later this week. All of our summer fan events are free.

Football is on. And, the 49ers will be ready to kickoff the regular season against the Seahawks on September 11, 2011.

Sincerely,
Jed York

John Lynch explains the 49ers re-signing Jason Verrett

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch stated that the rookie minicamp would kick off on May 12. However, that appears to be when first-year players can report to the team. The NFL announced today that the 49ers' rookie minicamp would take place May 13-15, two weeks after the draft. It will be the first opportunity for 49ers coaches to see its latest draft class, which includes nine players, on the practice field. In addition, several undrafted free agents will join them, along with some players looking to try out for the team. The 49ers drafted the following players in the 2022 NFL Draft. Round 2: Drake Jackson, DE, USC Round 3: Ty Davis-Price, RB, LSU Round 3: Danny Gray, WR. SMU Round 4: Spencer Burford,

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus provided his updated power rankings after the 2022 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers remained at the No.5 spot, with no movement post draft. Hanzus offered no comments on the 49ers draft selections but he did comment on the availability of All-Pro Deebo Samuel. Hanzus writes: "Meanwhile, the Niners don't seem at all eager to move superstar wide receiver Deebo Samuel, trade demand be damned. Kyle Shanahan said on Friday the 49ers have yet to receive an offer that was



The impact John Lynch believes Drake Jackson will have on the 49ers defense

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers' first selection of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't come until day two on Friday. Thanks to last year's trade package to move up to select quarterback Trey Lance, the team lacked a first-round pick. When the Niners' first selection came around, at No. 61 overall, the team again opted to bolster its defensive line, selecting former USC defensive end Drake Jackson. San Francisco has now used its first selection on a defensive lineman in six of the past eight drafts. The 49ers have focused a lot on keeping its defensive line well-stocked with talent, believing that making the pass rush a top priority will help every other position on defense. San Francisco added veteran pass rusher Dee Ford in 2019, just before drafting Nick Bosa,
