The 49ers players also shared their thoughts on Candlestick Park, their favorite memories there and what it will mean to see it go.


"There's a lot of history. you think of all the players who were on the field before us."


"Candlestick's got so much tradition. The feel of the guys who played there before us is there. There jerseys are up on the wall. I think the fans have a special place in their hearts for Candlestick."


"It's humbling just to have so much history come before you and know what the fans are used to and what the organization is used to. It makes you understand what kind of team you're going to be a part of and what type of football is known to be played. It's known for winning."


"I get chills just talking about it. It's not the best looking stadium, but there's so much history there. It's an honor to be able to play in it, the last year it will be here. I don't take that for granted."
