Joe Staley on Richard Sherman: “I thought I was gonna hate him”

Joe Staley on Richard Sherman: “I thought I was gonna hate him”

So basically, Staley thinks the same thing as several fans of the San Francisco 49ers. When Richard Sherman signed with the San Francisco 49ers there was plenty of resentment. Afterall, this is the guy who had been a thorn in the 49ers side during the Jim Harbaugh era and rubbed several people the wrong way. Given his history, it makes sense why fans were skeptical. Apparently, 49ers tackle Joe Staley was in the same boat. He was on the Rich Eisen show Thursday and along with praising Kyle Shanahan, had some words for his meeting with Richard Sherman: “I told him this to his face. He...

90-in-90: CB Tyvis Powell

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is OL Andrew Lauderdale. The San Francisco 49ers secondary has been overhauled over the past two years, with Richard Sherman the notable addition this year. He is expected to start opposite Ahkello Witherspoon, with Jimmie Ward potentially serving as the first cornerback off the bench. However, injuries have sidelined both Sherman and Ward during the offseason workout program. While both are expected back for training camp, their absences in May and June have opened the door for cornerback...

Jimmy G on cadence issues, learning 49ers offense, working with offensive line

The 49ers QB chatted with the media on Wednesday. We’ve got a full transcript, and you can watch video here. You’ve been called James by CB Richard Sherman. “I haven’t been called James probably since my grandma was calling me James. So, it’s been a little while, but it’s all in good fun.” Can you give us the story behind that? “You’ll have to ask [DB] Adrian Colbert about that. He’ll give you a good story.” You guys are about to take a more than a month-long break. Are there any thoughts or plans to get together with your skill guys at some point during the...

There’s “Celek Time” and then there’s “Uncle Sherm”

There’s “Celek Time” and then there’s “Uncle Sherm”

Uncle Sherm. That is all. You can watch this madness here. So the 49ers glossed Garrett Celek as “Celek Time” and the name stuck. Well that’s not the only ridiculous name running around the 49ers facility. Richard Sherman has been unable to participate in OTAs due to his achilles injury. This in turn has him helping coach up the defensive backs and position himself as a leader of the secondary. Well, the secondary has a name for him now: “Uncle Sherm.” Considering he’s not much older than them, Uncle Sherm seems a bit extreme, but it’s rather hilarious. How did this happen?...

Updates about the players and the team at their first practice of minicamp, and maybe some news that brings us all back to earth The 49ers opened the first practice of minicamp to the media and it was structured very similarly to OTAs. There were calisthenics, individual drills, 11-on-11s and 7-on7s. We saw move the ball drills but no end zone work. There may be slight variations on day two but probably nothing drastic. Here’s what we learned in day one. Injury updates Richard Sherman is back doing individual drills with his position group but not participating in team drills. Trent...

49ers’ Sherman discusses Seahawks, rehab and ‘James’ Garoppolo

Cornerback Richard Sherman refers to 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo as “James,” and he probably uses a few unprintable words when referring to the Seahawks’ decision-makers who released him in March. His feelings about the Seahawks again became clear when asked Tuesday about the offseason changes to his former team’s roster. His response: He wasn’t paying attention. “They decided to let me go and pursue another team,” Sherman said. “So once they cut ties, I cut ties.” Yes, Dec. 2, the day Sherman will face the Seahawks at...

Shanahan says Jimmie Ward, Richard Sherman will participate in individual drills

We’ll have a full transcript shortly, but some bigger news is Jimmie Ward and Richard Sherman will get to participate in individual drills. Ward tweaked his ankle at OTAs and the 49ers are playing it safe with him as far as individual work. Sherman on the other hand has been making good progress.

Sherman would love to have Dez on the roster

Will Blackmon says he spoke to Sherman and the 49ers cornerback wants Dez Bryant. A couple weeks ago, Dez Bryant commented that he’d love to come to the 49ers and quickly deleted it knowing everyone including myself would write something on it. Well, it seems like some 49ers players are open to it. Namely Richard Sherman. On NFL Network, Will Blackmon said he spoke to Sherman and said Sherman he, “would love to have Dez.” I’ve included the segment below: "I think Dez would be a touchdown machine there."
