Bryant Young update

Jan 1, 2007 at 9:17 AM--


According to a SF Chronicle article Bryant Young is pleased with the progress the 49ers (7-9) made, defensive tackle Bryant Young said he definitely wants to return for the 2007 season.

"I feel healthy and that was key for me, to get through the entire season healthy,'' said Young, the longest-tenured 49er who turns 35 on Jan. 27. "And I like what we did in the offseason, there is a lot to build on. And with the type of guys that we bring in, it's only going to get better.''

The final two years of Young's contract voided after this season because he reached certain playing time incentives.

Young, who was a first-round draft pick out of Notre Dame in 1994, believes the 49ers are on track to make the playoffs next season.

"I feel that, definitely. We're headed in the right direction with this franchise,'' he said. "And I want to be a part of that.''

Young was hit in the helmet making a tackle in the second half and walked off the field a bit woozy as he was helped by trainers. He returned to the game but was feeling the effects afterward.

"I'm a little foggy right now,'' Young said. "If I say something off the wall, pardon me.''

He didn't, and now will have the offseason to recover.

Bryant Young had an illustrious 14-year NFL career—all spent with the San Francisco 49ers. He will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan never coached Young. Although, on Saturday, he admitted that he tried to bring the former defensive lineman to San Francisco as a coach. The situation just didn't work out. Young served on the Atlanta Falcons coaching staff, but it was the year after Shanahan departed for the 49ers. Shanahan does remember Young's playing days, though. His father, Mike Shanahan, was the 49ers' offense coordinator during Young's rookie season, one in which the team finished as Super Bowl champions. "I love B.Y.," Shanahan told reporters. "I was a ball boy when he got drafted. Talk

49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides an update on Jason Verrett's timeline

By David Bonilla

Jason Verrett is once again working his way back from a devastating injury. The veteran cornerback showed his worth in 2020, proving to be one of the defense's best players and entered his 2021 campaign as one of the 49ers' starting cornerbacks, but suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Week 1. Verrett's career has been injury-plagued. While he has played in the league for eight years, the cornerback has avoided landing on injured reserve just twice (2015, 2020). Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about Verrett's timeline. The cornerback started training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list. "We would love to get him into camp," Shanahan said. "We'd love to get him ready for Week 1. I



Drake Jackson's usage might vary week to week; Young 49ers CBs have an opportunity vs. Packers

Maybe soon, Drake Jackson will become the complementary bookend to Nick Bosa that the San Francisco 49ers envisioned for Dee Ford. That was the hope when the team used its first selection in this year's draft, a second-round pick, on the defensive end out of USC. DeMeco Ryans is in his second year as the 49ers' defensive coordinator. He is working to ensure young players like Jackson are prepared for the rigors of an NFL season. He also wants to put those players in the best position to succeed. Their success is the 49ers' success, after all. For now, it looks like the 49ers have Samson Ebukam penciled in as the starter opposite Bosa. That role should eventually land with Jackson. "With Drake, he's coming along," Ryans told reporters after Wednesday's practice.
