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

Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



Breer: Don't buy the pre-draft hype; 49ers keeping QB evaluations 'close to the vest'

Mac Jones to the San Francisco 49ers is a done deal, right? That's what every analyst and evaluator would have you believe. Much of that originated from NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, a close friend of head coach Kyle Shanahan, stating that he believes the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to draft Jones. Shanahan debunked that last week. Not the idea that Jones might be the pick, but that Simms might have some insight into the team's plans. "Trust me, Chris talks about everything," Shanahan said. "Therefore, I haven't been able to talk to him in a couple of years. Anyone who you're friends with who speaks in the media, and people think you're friends with them, that means you're not allowed to tell them anything. That's why he doesn't even ask me stuff. Because



Jason Verrett on re-signing with 49ers: 'My heart was always with San Fran'

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what



Jason Verrett, teammates trust Jimmy Garoppolo, but believe in 49ers front office

Unless you stay off of social media, as Jimmy Garoppolo does, it's tough to escape all of the speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback's future. Garoppolo remains the favorite to be the Week 1 starter. Beyond 2021, though, who knows? San Francisco recently traded away several valuable draft picks, including multiple first-rounders, to move up to the No. 3 spot for the opportunity to acquire a quarterback of the future. The team obviously sees a potential upgrade in at least one option between Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. However, Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for this season, allowing a rookie the luxury of sitting and learning behind a veteran. Cornerback Jason Verrett spoke with reporters today. While he plays on the
