Golden Nuggets: Not in the Building, but Still Working

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Minicamp Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Training camp for the 49ers is just over 2 weeks away and while some NFL players are on vacation, some 49ers are taking this time to get ready for camp. Rookie LB Reuben Foster is currently working out at the 49ers facility in Santa Clara, trying to make sure he is a full go when training camp starts. He was limited in the offseason program due to his shoulder surgery. With all the concerns surrounding him when he was eligible to be drafted, it’s a good look that he is prepping himself to battle for a starting linebacking role in training camp.

Likely 49ers starting QB Brian Hoyer is also getting reps during his free time. He is hosting 15 of his teammates at SMU in Dallas and they want to make sure they have no rust when they come back to Santa Clara for training camp. All 4 quarterbacks are there and they are joined by a large group of the receivers, 3 tight ends, and Kapri Bibbs, the lone running back. Hoyer is familiar with Kyle Shanahan’s offense, which could give the other participants valuable time learning the system. They will be at SMU for 3 days and will reconvene in Santa Clara on July 27th for the start of training camp.

In Hawaii, a few of the 49ers defensive players are working out as well. DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead, Ronald Blair, and Eli Harold are training with rival Michael Bennett. Since the 49ers are adopting the Seahawks defense this season, this could prove very valuable for the young players. Bennett is one of most important players in Seattle’s defense and his experience in the system will help the attending 49ers players.
