8.4: 49ers camp report -- Matt Maiocco and Mindi Bach
After a late practice, Matt Maiocco and Mindi Bach break down a noteworthy practice in Santa Clara.
Matt Mayo coming deep bother bringing any late edition from 49ers training camp and that's because on this day. Jim Harbaugh decided to push back practice to start at 5 o'clock on a chance at the CB it would take longer ratified then expected that was true. And it paid off because they have signed a big name veteran free agent Braylon Edwards and they were able to get him on the field today what are your thoughts about how quickly that came together. Yeah that was. I knew that they were you know they're looking for a wide receiver they struck out and coaches -- you know they struck out on Plaxico Burress and Braylon Edwards I mean. I mean the guy ever seen him here and in Santa Clara in 2005 when He walked and the foreigners were considering publicly considering. It's liking of the number one overall pick. Braylon Edwards is here. -- roles here course out Smith that was another guy Aaron Rodgers stats that say about these four guys in -- and how many years later now six years later. He's -- Alex Smith still around and hear them Braylon Edwards to help them out. When your deal for Edwards threw Brady were three and a half million dollars and nothing guaranteed -- -- guaranteed it's -- -- pick up for the 49ers and Braylon Edwards spoke to the media this evening and He can't -- fresh start not only on the field off the field being accountable. The one thing He says he's an except whatever penalty Roger Goodell gives out if He does -- on a penalty He asked him and I think there is going to be at the podium in the 49ers signed him. With open eyes I mean they figure that there's going to be a one or two game suspension so. Braylon Edwards not necessarily guaranteed of -- being there in uniform for the 49ers on September 11 when they open up against Seattle but. They expect him. For the -- to this season and they expect him to really help that office and and when you look at it and there's some pretty good weapons of course you have Frank Gore. Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker I think those guys are going to be huge with them but the tight ends out Jim -- and great -- Roman like he's a tight ends. When Crabtree comes back and I'm told -- He will be back at some point. For that perhaps even the other regular season. -- opener. He and Josh -- and Josh Morgan he's. It almost sixteen yards or reception last year and that's the sort same sort of numbers that Braylon Edwards and so. You know Alex Smith is gonna have some have some weapons authority announced they -- -- John finger -- -- -- Super Bowl -- center who is that the same -- He said this team reminds him of the Saints when He joined that team in 2006 new head coach coming -- losing season trying to turn around -- feel. Talk about free agency in general though because of 49ers are criticized for being patient people wanted them to make a splash in the last two days that they've picked up five players. Who started minimum of twelve games last year they're all starters they picked yet they they are and I -- she's -- -- by a mile walk Carlos Rogers I mean he's probably an upgrade over Nate Clements. You mentioned Goodwin. For for boss we got India Edward and Williams of well I don't I'm not sure he's gonna make the team. Yeah you know I'm not sure he's gonna make the team but I do you know that Donte Whitner is gonna make the team He agreed to terms of the 49ers he's going to be taken. The jungles and spot no way to -- uncle since coming back and of course what we can talk about another safety. -- dance for the 49ers content and of course Braylon Edwards is going to be a starter so. Yeah I mean there's some. They've done some work here the last few days in the sun golds and still without a team that looks likely to 49ers certainly not it. And then of course the big story today that -- teams and on a mass email -- are willing to trade. Taylor Mays this little bit and usually it. Typically an NFL where it's all about relationships you sent out mass emails. Regarding your players to Harbaugh did address that yes in the united it's obviously Taylor Mays yelled at the moment that guy gets out there Taylor Mays heard about it in. And so Taylor Mays -- balky talked today I'm sure there's a lot of us. Moving over. That situation it's as Harbaugh talked about. But also the fact of the matter is Taylor Mays and hasn't had an up out there on the practice field for this new coaching staff did for them to say he's part of the future. Jim Harbaugh said they haven't received some inquiries about Taylor Mays and so I guess they just wanted to make sure that everybody -- I got in on the sweepstakes that I don't know that Taylor -- have a whole lot of -- you'll probably probably a fifth round draft pick for Taylor Mays so I don't expect to see him. With the 49ers -- the season. Begins. But. You know the errors they've had some replacements coming in you know like you mentioned in the do you Williams probably better suited to be -- that gap. If He makes a team. CJ -- -- out there Paxson and Reggie Smith I think as a starter I think Reggie Smith and totti winner of the two starters that season. Enemies did practice with the team now after the report ran out and He was practicing there at third down the second or third team a lot of players are cheating and an out and the last thing how quickly were taken on time to believe me it is -- -- -- we wanted to do that and hopefully I guess I know I'm just -- -- Just real quickly the first practice since all the that are free agency signed could be used to teams out Smith is out there for the first time. And with the entire team just your thoughts on the practice in general. Well it it's just need to sort of pick -- your roster and go -- that -- that is out and president Carlos Rogers there's you know this guy that guy. I I think the team. Looks a lot better. Right now than it did. Or five days out there four days I mean I was thinking this is that this is that you FL team out there that I know I'm watching. You know -- in that division. They have a chance I think Kansas foreigners have reason to have hope right now that they have upgraded a number of positions and they can be a better team. Matt and I will return again on Friday for another training camp report it will be during the day. That would be a lot warmer knows he's got the sense that it. That is out of -- on CSN Bay Area dot com.
