“Brown (5-11, 196) was originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round (189th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. Throughout his seven-year career with the Cowboys, he has appeared in 94 games (69 starts) and registered 316 tackles, 4.0 sacks, 59 passes defensed, nine interceptions, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He has also appeared in four postseason contests (three starts) and tallied 11 tackles, one pass defensed and one interception.”
“The bad news? The 49ers’ front, led by Nick Bosa, Javon Hargrave and Arik Armstead, was expected to make Wilks alter his approach, not force him to make drastic halftime changes.”
““Really, we always look at the cap for three years out.”
“He’s in much better condition,” Shanahan said on Tuesday. “He had a much better training camp. He was able to get through it all and get better throughout it.
“He’s in the best shape, doesn’t have to come out as much, doesn’t have to take as many plays off and is playing as good as I’ve seen him play.”
“San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, quarterback Brock Purdy, and defensive coordinator Steve Wilks spoke with reporters on Tuesday, as the team prepares for its Week 3 matchup against the New York Giants. Here is everything they had to say.”
“Hargrave had 19 sacks in his first five years before getting 18.5 over the past two seasons. He was part of a Philadelphia Eagles defensive line that featured four members with 11 or more sacks. Armstead is a very good all-around player. But aside from his 10-sack season of 2019, he has never put up huge sack numbers. The 49ers are relying on Drake Jackson to develop into a consistent pass-rusher and provide a lift on the other side of Bosa.”
