The Super Bowl XLVII Media Day was held today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and his players were asked a number of questions by the media in attendance.

Here are just a few topics that were touched by the 49ers during Media Day.

Wide receiver Randy Moss said that he would like to return for another season, but won't commit to the 49ers.

Moss also discussed his legacy, saying that he is "the greatest receiver to ever play the game." While admitting that this was a down year statistically for him, he more looks at the impact he has on the field.

Strong safety Donte Whitner said that the 49ers are still trying to iron out the kinks in the preparation for the Baltimore Ravens. He is confident that the team will be as prepared as they can once they hit the field on Sunday.

Tight end Vernon Davis said that he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have built some chemistry. Last month, Davis said that it was a lack of chemistry with the new quarterback that caused his drop in production.

Quarterback Alex Smith touched on his future a little bit, saying that he is excited for his next opportunity ... wherever that comes. He wants to be an NFL starter again and many feel that the 49ers will try to trade him during the offseason.

Michael Crabtree discussed his rise in production with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback. While he was careful to to say anything negative about quarterback Alex Smith, he did say, "You can be the best receiver in the world. If you don't have a quarterback ... those talents won't be seen."

Head coach Jim Harbaugh even quoted some Shakespeare on Media Day when asked about his brother, saying "For he who sheds blood with me shall also be my brother," referring to his team.

Do the 49ers currently have what it takes to win Super Bowl LVII?

When we last saw them, the San Francisco 49ers were leaving the field after a devastating loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers made a lot of moves during free agency. Some were positive, like adding a starting cornerback in Charvarius Ward. Some were negative, like not bringing back players D.J. Jones and Laken Tomlinson. But the team has added a large draft class, as well as a large group of undrafted free agents. The 49ers have also experienced changes to the coaching staff, front office, and scouting departments. It's been an offseason of transformation so far, and we're still almost three months away from training camp. Next week, the NFL schedule comes out, so we should have a better feel for how the season may play out. For

Deebo Samuel is once again following his team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Instagram. That's significant considering the drama that ensued when the dynamic wide receiver stopped following the team, removed his profile picture, and all other 49ers-related content from his profile on the social media platform (h/t @OurSf49ers_).

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

By David Bonilla

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,
