The 49ers had the privilege of hosting 2 legends at their Monday practice. Hall of Famers Steve Young and Jerry Rice made an appearance in Santa Clara, Rice even participated in warm-ups and individual drills. The 49ers are looking to bring back a championship culture and there are not many better champions than Jerry Rice and Steve Young. They talked to the team before practice and gave tips on how to build a championship culture. The 49ers hope that the players take those tips and use it to build a winning mentality.

The team picked up 2 linemen on Monday. DL Leger Douzable and OL Andrew Gardner both signed one year deal. To make room, the 49ers waived safety Chanceller James after suffering an injury on Friday. If he isn’t picked up, he will be put on injured reserve. Douzable started 16 games last season in Buffalo. Gardner played with the 49ers last year. He started the 49ers’ last game in December.

Aaron Lynch suffered an injury at practice and was forced off the field. He apparently suffered a right leg or ankle injury and walked off the field. Reports seem to suggest that the injury is not too serious. Aaron had a good game on Friday and the 49ers are relying on him to play well this season. After Lynch’s injury, Earl Mitchell was also forced off the field. Like Lynch, his injury does not seem to be serious. He was a free agent pick up that the team is looking to help fix the defense.
