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

Whenever running back Frank Gore plans to call it a career, he plans to do so as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. That will likely come on a one-day ceremonial deal so that he can retire with the team that drafted him 15 years ago. To anyone who follows the 49ers, they already knew this. What Gore, the team's all-time leading rusher, told NBC Sports Bay Area this week is that he's already had a discussion with 49ers CEO Jed York about the plans, and the two sides agreed to make sure it happens. "We talked about that," Gore said. "I got to. That's the team that gave me the opportunity to do something I always wanted to do when I
