Forced to sit out the entire 2019 season after suffering a concussion in the preseason, Jordan Reed is looking to start anew in San Francisco. While the team took a conservative approach in getting the tight end back in team drills, when his number was called, Reed emerged as a standout. "I definitely thought about hanging it up after last season," Reed said. "But when I saw the Super Bowl, that really ignited me again. I want to play in those big games man.

49ers Fan Cutout Program

While the San Francisco 49ers will begin the 2020 regular season without fans in the stands at Levi's® Stadium, the Faithful have the chance to see themselves represented at home games this season through the team's new 49ers Fan Cutout program. For $149, with proceeds benefitting the 49ers Foundation and its direct programs 49ers EDU and 49ers PREP, fans can purchase a cutout to be placed in the seats behind the Levi's® Stadium end zones.

To be a part of history and secure one of these limited-edition cutouts, fans can upload a high-resolution photo of themselves, a spouse, child, and/or a pet to 49ers-fan-cutouts.aaaflag.com. While some cutouts will be visible on NFL television broadcasts, all buyers will receive a link to download a photo of their cutout in Levi's® Stadium. Fans who purchase cutouts will also be eligible for exclusive giveaways and other promotions during the season.
