Ellington's post is interesting. It was a paid advertisement brought to you by Verizon and featured video of him receiving his call from the 49ers alerting him that he was being drafted.

Richard Sherman, Jed York, other 49ers react to Wednesday's events at U.S. Capitol

By David Bonilla

Wednesday was a heartbreaking and embarrassing day for America. The public watched on television and streaming platforms as angry supporters of President Donald Trump, encouraged by Trump, stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in an attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Included in those watching in horror were several San Francisco 49ers players, including Richard Sherman, who, like so many, wondered how the situation might have been handled differently by authorities had the skin color of those taking part in the chaotic mob been different.

Current, former 49ers react to Jets hiring Robert Saleh as head coach

After a two-day interview this week, now-former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh landed the head-coaching job with the New York Jets. It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco.

Quarterback C.J. Beathard had a good game on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. His 81.3 overall grade from the analytics site was the best among San Francisco 49ers players. Beathard finished the game completing 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 98.1. On top of the insurmountable number of injuries the team endured this past season, the 49ers spent the last month in Arizona after Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banned contact sports. "Hopefully, we don't ever have to do this again, first off," Beathard said after the game, ready to finally get home.
