49ers' Emmanuel Moseley working with Charvarius Ward to become a better press corner

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is entering his fifth NFL season. That's the same experience—as far as years—as his new teammate, Charvarius Ward. In March, the San Francisco 49ers signed the 26-year-old Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million contract, bolstering the defensive back room. While the two cornerbacks entered the league at the same time, Ward has over 1,000 more career snaps on defense (2,719 to 1,676). So Moseley knows there is a lot he can learn from Ward. "He's a great press corner, so I'm learning from him," Moseley told reporters on Wednesday. "Just the attitude that he brings every day to the meetings, talking to the younger guys, and even coaching me up. I like Charvarius, and I'm ready to work with him." Moseley has been

For months, San Francisco 49ers fans have been awaiting closure surrounding the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, and finally got some last week when head coach Kyle Shanahan declared that Lance was the guy moving forward at the position. Even more closure around Garoppolo could be on its way soon, as Marco Martinez of the "49ers RedZone" podcast confirmed to me on Thursday that the veteran quarterback's agent has indeed been in talks with the New York Giants, who have had themselves a bit of a quarterback dilemma after electing to bypass on Daniel Jones's fifth-year option and signing veteran Tyrod Taylor to a two-year deal in the offseason. Remember, Garoppolo currently has one year and $24.2 million left on his contract, but it's



New deal allows 49ers to fully utilize Deebo Samuel as an offensive weapon

This offseason will go down as one of the more chaotic ones in league history. The San Francisco 49ers finally locked up their star receiver Deebo Samuel to a multi-year contract extension. This needed to be the organization's top priority heading into training camp. Not only were there a plethora of star receivers threatening to hold out in hopes of securing a long-term deal, but the movement of star players around the league was also unprecedented. With the quarterback carousel taking place around the league, seeing Russell Wilson go to Denver, Deshaun Watson to Cleveland, and Matt Ryan heading to Indianapolis, 2022 will go down as the year of the

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Friday's practice, providing some injury updates during the conversation. First, he revealed that offensive lineman Jaylon Moore would miss some time with a lower leg strain. The other injury was to wide receiver Marcus Johnson, who is in the concussion protocol. The injury occurred on Tuesday, the same day as the brawls between linebacker Fred Warner and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. According Shanahan, Johnson was the recipient of a big hit from the star linebacker, causing the injury and sparking the scuffle. "I love the intensity of it, but I don't think you have to fight to be intense, though," Shanahan said of the brawls. "Scuffles are scuffles. Then
