Last year's winner was Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.

Kyle Shanahan: 49ers made 2022 QB decision a year ago with Trey Lance

On the eve of training camp, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with the Athletic's Tim Kawakami, focusing on his young quarterback Trey Lance as he enters his first season as the starting quarterback for the 49ers. Reminiscing on last season, Shanahan praised Garoppolo for his performance in leading the 49ers en route to the NFC Championship Game, but admitted that the 49ers figured out their quarterback situation last year with the selection of Trey Lance, understanding that the salary cap made it tough to carry Garoppolo for 2022. "We had an awesome run with



49ers GM John Lynch on Nick Bosa's extension: Most likely to happen next year

San Francisco 49ers star receiver Deebo Samuel's extension talks have been at the forefront of 49ers' news this offseason. However, there is another star from the 2019 draft class that has yet to receive an extension—defensive end Nick Bosa. Bosa, who bounced back from a torn ACL in 2020 with 15.5 sacks last season, has a different situation from Samuel, as he was a first-round pick, meaning the Ohio State edge rusher has a fifth-year option in his contract, as opposed to entering the final year of his deal. General manager John Lynch addressed the topic at San Francisco's pre-training camp press conference on Tuesday, acknowledging that extension talks with Bosa will likely occur next year due to precedent.

General manager John Lynch announced that the San Francisco 49ers have signed defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (KIM-dee-chee), a former first-round draft pick, to a one-year deal. He was one of three defensive linemen who worked out for the team on Monday. It was reported last week that the team was signing Nkemdiche, but Lynch insists the decision didn't come until this week. "I know it was reported last week, but that person must have been Nostradamus because we had a workout," Lynch said. "We had not decided. There were three guys here working out. He did shine in the workout, so he'll be a part of us moving forward. We're excited about that." The Arizona Cardinals drafted Nkemdiche (6-3, 296) out of Ole Miss with the No. 29 overall pick in 2016.
