CMC Contract Extension, Ward Recovery; 4 Takeaways from Mandatory Minicamp

The San Francisco 49ers have completed the voluntary portion of their offseason workout program and are now working their way through a three-day mandatory minicamp. This week's practices are the final ones before the team breaks for 40 days ahead of training camp.

The reigning AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year is staying in The Bay for the foreseeable future. McCaffrey came to the 49ers via a 2022 mid-season trade and his impact on San Francisco's offense was immediate. The 49ers went on to score 30-plus points in seven of their final 10 regular season contests and finished top five in yards per game. In 2023, that production continued. The team closed out the year as a top-two offense in yards per game (398.4) and top three in points per game (28.9), and McCaffrey was once again one of the workhorses behind the offensive success. During his OPOY campaign, he led the NFL in rushing yards (1,459) and yards from scrimmage (2,023) while finishing tied for the most total touchdowns (21).

49ers PR Staff Selected as PFWA 2024 Rozelle Award Winner

The San Francisco 49ers public relations staff was announced as the 2024 Pete Rozelle Award winner by the Professional Football Writers of America for the first time in franchise history. The Rozelle Award is given to the NFL club public relations staff that consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media.

During the 2023 season, the 49ers football communications staff consisted of vice president of football communications Corry Rush, director of football communications Peter Volmut, manager of football communications Kristin Wojcik and coordinator of football communications Zackary Teats. The staff was also assisted by football communications seasonal intern Caleigh Elkin, director of communications and public affairs Ellie Caple, senior manager of communications and public affairs Josh Stephens and senior coordinator of corporate communications Jacob Fill.

Fred Warner Sits at No. 1 in PFF's 'Top 32' LB Rankings Ahead of 2024

Although no NFL team stays the same year-to-year, the San Francisco 49ers managed to keep a large majority of its veteran corps from Super Bowl LVIII intact headed into next season. Among that group of returning veteran playmakers is linebacker Fred Warner, who was one of three athletes league wide to earn unanimous All-Pro honors in 2023 after amassing 132 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, 11 passes defensed and four interceptions. He also earned a 90.0-overall defensive grade from Pro Football Focus, the second-highest mark amongst all linebackers, and logged 600-plus more defensive snaps than the linebacker with the No. 1-overall grade.
