NFC Notes: 49ers, Rams, Seahawks


Formers 49ers LT Joe Staley said that HC Kyle Shanahan wants him on his coaching staff but the former offensive tackle isn’t in a “huge hurry” after retiring last year. 

“I know Kyle’s trying to get me up there to work on his staff, but I’m not ready to do the coaching thing yet,” Staley said, via 95.7TheGame. “I’m really, honestly, just enjoying the time that I have with my family right now. I have two young girls, seven and four, and we’re enjoying spending a ton of time together. I’m catching up on all the time I missed while playing football and I’m not in a huge hurry to get back into something.”

  • Matt Maiocco notes that 49ers’ recently waived LB Nathan Gerry‘s was spotted rehabbing from an Achilles injury during the team’s offseason program.


Rams HC Sean McVay said CB David Long Jr. has been really impressive in OTAs so far.

“He’s done a great job,” McVay said, via Rams Wire. “I think he’s really done a nice job elevating his game at the outside location. He has been a guy with some position flex inside, but I think he’s really, really done a nice job of growing. He’s gotten a lot of really valuable, beneficial reps where you’ve seen him tangibly improve throughout the course of the offseason because the one thing that we have done full-speed is 7-on-7. He’s taken to Coach Evero, Coach Cooley and Coach Morris’ teaching progression, understanding concepts better and I’ve been really pleased with David and he’s a guy we’re going to count on and we’re expecting him to be a big-time contributor for us.”
