Report: 49ers to promote new TE coach from within

“Fleury joined the 49ers’ staff in 2019 as a defensive quality control coach, then moved to the offensive side in 2020. His first taste of NFL coaching action came with the Bills in 2013 where he worked as a defensive quality control coach.

In 2014, he and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan were on the same staff in Cleveland where Shanahan was the offensive coordinator.”

Glazer explains why 49ers are ‘enamored’ with young QB Lance

“I’ve heard great stuff about him behind the scenes,” Glazer said. “I heard, they love him. They’re enamored with him. He does some things in practice that make you go, ‘Oh, my goodness.’ But he’s young.”

Sando: Tom Brady to the 49ers makes sense...if someone can find a way

“Sando adds that the combination of Brady and Garoppolo sharing an agent and the 49ers having Garoppolo to offer to the Buccaneers makes a trade scenario plausible. The option to add Garoppolo for the rights to a player who can just as easily stay retired, has to at least be explored”

Peter King: Trey Lance can be better for 49ers in 2022 than Jimmy Garoppolo was in 2021

“My feeling is — and I feel strong about this — my feeling is: Kyle Shanahan knows right now that he has a good quarterback,” Peter King of NBC Sports said on 49ers Talk.”

Hutchinson: How 49ers could address secondary in upcoming offseason

“It was evident to anyone who followed the 49ers’ 2021 campaign, even in passing, that the secondary was not the strength of the team. There was a particularly grotesque stretch of the early season when it was the bane of their existence.”

Barrows: Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers coaching staff is taking shape; what will Trey Sermon’s role be in 2022? Mailbag (paywall)

“It’s mid-February and there’s not a lot going on in 49ers land. And yet your questions this week ranged from strong to quite strong.”

State of the 49ers, WR/TE: Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle brought some balance to the top (paywall)

“The tops of the receiver and tight end rooms with Samuel, Aiyuk, Jennings and Kittle are essentially set for 2022. How the 49ers fill out the depth slots will be the most interesting order of offseason business here.”
