“We like those veterans to be someone who can help us out in a pinch,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday on a conference call with Bay Area reporters.
“So losing J.V. was tough. But we wanted to make sure we get at least another corner in, and we want to take a look at some vets since that spot opened up.”
“Kyle Shanahan spoke with the media Tuesday afternoon to provide updates on several players. The updates are as follows.”
“The Los Angeles Chargers and Panthers, along with Las Vegas, Atlanta, Washington and Tennessee currently are the six NFL teams with head-coaching vacancies.”
“Manning cites his 2012 free agent meeting with the Washington Commanders and then-offensive coordinator Shanahan. He says the two watched film together for two hours and Manning came away “extremely impressed”.
“Shanahan indicated Armstead went through a workout Tuesday, which went well enough to provide clearance for him to practice. The 49ers will practice Thursday and Friday and take the weekend off during their first-round playoff bye.”
