Jarryd Hayne posts thoughts on joining 49ers on Instagram

Mar 2, 2015 at 9:34 PM--


In the end, it came down to two teams -- the Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers. The Seattle Seahawks were reportedly no longer in the running. Jarryd Hayne, the former rugby star who played for the Parramatta Eels and left the National Rugby League only four months ago for a chance at the NFL, officially picked the 49ers.

He made the announcement via a press conference. Much like the ones that high profile high school students make in order to announce which college they will attend. While it may be a footnote among US sports news, it was huge news to fans of rugby.

Hayne stated that he would receive $100k guaranteed from his new team and that his start date would be around April 10. He ran a 4.53 second 40-yard dash and looks to compete as a running back and possibly a return man on special teams.

Here is what he wrote on Instagram shortly after the announcement. Hopefully you can excuse the fact that he misspelled "San Francisco."

"I'm the worst christian I know but still gods favour reins over my life. Why, I'm not sure but I love ya big man. Without you I can achieve much. With YOU I can achieve anything. Incredible proud to join the 49ers franchise. To my family,friends n fans thank you for your love and support Looking forward to setting up in San Fransisco and doing what it takes to make the roster."

Mohamed Sanu on joining the 49ers: 'It happened so quick'

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu's agent confirmed on Tuesday that his client had reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Sanu joins a banged-up receivers group that is without Deebo Samuel (foot) for at least the next two games, could be without Richie James (hamstring), who also serves as the team's top return-man, and perhaps even rookie Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring). Although, the 49ers remain hopeful that Aiyuk will return this week. Add to that an injury to tight end George Kittle (knee sprain), and you can see why the 49ers felt the need to bolster quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's potential targets. Josina Anderson reached out to Sanu after news

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to step onto the Levi's Stadium football field and kick off their 2020 season, seven months after suffering a heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. General manager John Lynch believes his squad has emerged from the offseason as a better unit. Now, the 49ers just have to go out and show that today against the Arizona Cardinals, and then the rest of their opponents this season. "The great thing about that, Greg, is that this is a show-me league," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers pre-game show (via Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports). "So we gotta show up and prove that. I believe that potentially we've got an

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 1 matchup on the road against the Arizona Cardinals. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game. NFL teams can each have 48 players active on game days. This season, each can promote one or two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players. After the game, any elevated player will revert back to the practice squad without having to go through waivers. Teams can do this twice with each player before subjecting him to waivers first. The 49ers on Saturday elevated center Hroniss Grasu and cornerback Dontae Johnson from the practice squad while placing wide receiver Deebo Samuel on short-term injured
