Darnell Dockett says, “We will still WIN!”

Jun 7, 2015 at 9:06 AM--


The general feeling out of Santa Clara, where the San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their upcoming minicamp following OTAs, is that players do not seem too concerned with the recent team turnover.

Defensive lineman Darnell Dockett, an offseason free agent acquisition, had the following to say on Twitter.



This 49ers offseason has been a rough one, which included the retirement of offensive tackle Anthony Davis and the trade of the longest tenured Niner, punter Andy Lee, in the past few days. The trade leaves 5th round selection and rookie Bradley Pinion to take over punting duties.

Of course, all of this is after an offseason filled with a massive coaching overhaul and the retirements of linebackers Patrick Willis and Chris Borland as well as the retirement of defensive lineman Justin Smith.

Much of this has left some to question just how much team management's decisions have impacted player decisions.

Still, the general feeling among the 49ers appears to still be positive. ESPN's Louis Riddick had the following to share.

It's not at 100 percent, but it's really just about getting reps at this point, getting endurance back to it, the durability and everything. I think once we do that, it'll be in a good spot, so I'm pretty happy where I'm at." Garoppolo knows he needs to find a way to stay on the football field for his teammates.

If cornerback Jason Verrett decides to stay with the 49ers past the 2020 season, perhaps the team's training staff may deserve some credit for an assist. Verrett is one of the most intriguing cases among the long list of impending free agents on whom the 49ers must come to a decision before the start of the 2021 league year on March 18. Verrett has a long and difficult injury history that limited him to just six total game appearances from 2016 to 2019. But at age 29, he was finally able to stay mostly healthy throughout 2020 and put on a performance that showed he is still capable of being the type of player he was early in his career when he was selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a
