Members of the 49ers were once again found cheering on the San Jose Sharks during Monday’s game, reminding everyone just how entertaining they can be. And while I would love to watch them on “Hard Knocks” and see what kind of shenanigans Joe Staley gets into, I understand why the team would want to avoid such a distraction. Lucky for them, it seems the league isn’t willing to force them to be on it either. My money is on the Oakland Raiders. It’s their last season in Oakland, Jon Gruden loves the cameras, and the drama that could be Antonio Brown.

Before the Sharks game, the 49ers continued their offseason activities, but this time the rookies were finally allowed to join the veterans. Nick Bosa was held out of 11-on-11 drills while they ease him back into things. Bosa and Deebo Samuel had to sign waivers beforehand that guarantee no change to their pay in case of injury while they remain unsigned.
