Good morning 49ers Faithful, Training Camp will begin promptly at 9:15 this morning. Without further ado, let’s dive right into the top 49ers headlines from San Francisco’s first day off at camp.
Respected NFL writer Peter King of Sports Illustrated visited 49ers camp on Monday and filed a must-read report. According to the longtime NFL scribe, the 49ers are in the best shape he’s seen in years.
“Long-term this is the best I’ve felt about the 49ers since Steve Young walked off the field for the last time in 1999,” King wrote.
In another appearance on NFL Network, King told host Rich Eisen just how impressed he was with veteran wideout Randy Moss.
“When I saw Randy Moss come off the line of scrimmage and fake Perrish Cox so severely that Cox slipped and Randy Moss ran across the middle and caught a beautiful crossing throw,” King told Eisen. “And then ran a 9-route, you know, the long deep ball down the sideline, and beat Carlos Rodgers, who had an excellent year last year.”
More 49ers headlines can be found after the jump.
Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee takes an educated guess at the 49ers depth chart through one week of camp practices.
Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle shares the comments of tight end Delanie Walker who rushed back from injury to compete in the playoffs. Branch: “Walker had a specially designed helmet for the game, but he didn’t have sensation in the left side of his face. Along with fracturing the jaw, the impact from Hill’s knee had also severed nerves. More than six months later, Walker still has isolated numbness as a result of the injury, which, he said doesn’t affect him on the field or when he eats.”
