Fred Warner Says Experience Together Will Benefit 49ers Linebackers in 2020
On a video call with media on Friday, Fred Warner discussed the tone of the 49ers linebackers room. The group will have an "advantage" over last season as the unit is staying mostly intact and Warner sees this as a way for the linebacking corps to "play faster" in 2020. During the 2019 season, Warner started all 16 games accumulating three forced fumbles, 3.0 sacks, 118-combined tackles and the first pick-six of his career. The third-year player also looked back at squaring up against Jerick McKinnon during his rookie training camp, shared how he is preparing for the upcoming season from home, his favorite Joe Staley memory and more.
