The San Francisco 49ers will introduce defensive lineman Arik Armstead Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. PT. Armstead spoke to the media via conference call Thursday evening, but this will provide the formal introduction with photo opportunities. Armstead will answer some questions from the assembled media, so it should be available for viewing. CSN Bay Area will be broadcasting, which means you can watch the live stream above from CSNBayArea.com/live. If there are any issues with that stream, check out 49ers.com/live.
Armstead spoke with the media Thursday, and you can view the full transcript HERE. I don't expect a lot more to come from the press conference, but it will be interesting to see how he responds in front of the press. I don't think it really matters for purposes of playing, but it's always interesting. Last year, when Jimmie Ward met the media the Friday after he was drafted, I'm pretty sure he could not have been any more smooth. It was a fun, light press conference. It has little to no bearing on his football playing, but it's something to watch.
