“He’s fit in with the group since Day 1,” Warner said. “I think he’s come in with the right mindset, the humility. The front office continues to bring in guys that love the game. They love football. They are good people. And Trey’s continued to work hard. And that’s how you build respect amongst your teammates and your peers, is by putting in the work, day in and day out, and guys seeing that.
“He’s a lot more mature than people think and/or know,” Gould said, via Matt Maiocco of NBCSportsBayArea.com. “He’s a young kid. I think I started playing in the NFL when he was three, so it makes me feel a little bit older than normal.

“Bates, 25, is a former second-round pick who has intercepted 10 passes in four career seasons. The Bengals recently gave him the franchise tag, and he says he refuses to report to training camp or play at all this season without a multi-year extension.

“I think when each player that goes through that process, from a teammate’s perspective, and knowing that I’ve been through that process as well, you’ve got to let that guy go through it, however it may go,” Warner said. “I know there’s been ups and downs. That’s just another part of it that a lot of people don’t see.
