Oct 17, 2019 at 8:20 PM--


The toughest guy on the 49ers' big, bad second-ranked defense might be one of their smallest. Now in his sixth NFL season, free safety Jimmie Ward has overcome an inordinate amount of injuries and insults to be in the position he was late Sunday afternoon at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum: Ward had back-to-back pass break-ups, the last on 4th-and-2, to seal the 20-7 win over the NFC champion Rams.

Earlier this year, NFL teams were expecting a significant salary-cap increase in 2021. A new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) had been struck, and future television contracts should have increased revenue opportunities, and with it, the ability to spend more on players. Then COVID-19 happened. Here we are, entering the sixth month of a pandemic. The timeframe is longer if you look at the worldwide impact.

Quarterback Nick Mullens won't get a start anytime soon without Jimmy Garoppolo being forced to miss a game. He has eight starts for the San Francisco 49ers, all of which came during the 2018 season after starter Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL, and C.J. Beathard proved ineffective and sustained an injury of his own. It wasn't a big sample size, but Mullens filled in admirably, passing for 2,277 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions through those eight games before returning to his backup role the next season—following a training-camp competition with Beathard.
