Billick: 49ers fans want to see how Chip Kelly comes out of the gate

Aug 11, 2016 at 9:49 AM--


Brian Billick appeared on NFL Network's Good Morning Football this morning and named Chip Kelly of the San Francisco 49ers as the first-year (on a new team) head coach that he is most excited to see.

"I think the San Francisco fans and everybody wants to see how Chip Kelly's team comes out of the gate," said Bullock. "Now it is preseason, but obviously it's such a dramatic change in terms of the style. They want to see can indeed Chip Kelly's style of play convert quickly in San Francisco. They want to see this high-flying offense and they want to see it now."

When asked what his coaching strategy would be for preseason, Billick reminded everyone that the first preseason game is about evaluation. That's something that 49ers offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins stressed this week. "We're not looking to out-scheme Houston by any means," said Modkins. "We're looking to see who can block and who can be in the right places and who steps the right way, whose fundamentals are the right way and whose pad levels are down, can we throw and catch simple routes. There's not any game planning going on for the first game."

"[The first preseason game] is about finding who you have on your team," said Billick. "This is going to be the most substantial playing time for the young players, for the backup players, save the last game of preseason. But as you know, if you wait until then to show that you belong on that team, you may miss the boat because by then it's too late. So this first game as a coach – starters are in there for a little bit – it's all about 'I want to look at every player I have on the roster and find out who can play.'"

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have re-signed cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal. He was an unrestricted free agent. Two days have passed since the conclusion of the 2022 NFL Draft. The 49ers selected two cornerbacks—Samuel Womack of Toledo and Tariq Castro-Fields of Penn State—as part of their nine-player draft class. The team also invested heavily in the position by signing cornerback Charvarius Ward in free agency. The then-San Diego Chargers drafted Verrett (5-10, 188) out of TCU with the No. 25 overall pick in 2014. He registered five tackles during Week 1 this past season before suffering a season-ending torn ACL, landing on injured reserve for the sixth time in eight seasons.

The San Francisco 49ers never received a trade offer that made them reconsider their stance that Deebo Samuel must remain on the roster. He's not just a wide receiver for the team. Last season, Samuel showed that he could do it all, contributing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns receiving and rushing during his breakout third-year campaign. The 2022 NFL Draft is behind us, and Samuel remains on the roster after recently requesting to be traded. The 49ers hope to mend the relationship between team and player. However, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Samuel remains intent on leaving the 49ers. "It appears he is still dug in, still wants to be traded

In 2021, Womack recorded 32 total tackles, two interceptions—with 58 return yards, and 15 pass breakups. "Very highly productive player at Toledo," general manager John Lynch said on Saturday.
