History of 49ers Camp: Tension and Toil at Training Camp
Preseason training camp is an endless grind of sweat and anxiety. From opening day physical exams through final roster cuts, NFL players are brought together for their team's annual summer ritual.
The San Francisco 49ers camps have evolved since the first one in 1946. In the early days of pro football, players returned from their off-season jobs and used summer sessions to lose weight, study the playbook and prepare for a 12-game season.
Since 1946, the 49ers have utilized eight different football facilities for summer training. Listed here are some training camp highlights and misadventures.
On the You've Got Mail podcast, Greg Papa evaluated several training camp battles, including quarterback, wide receiver and safety, previewed the depth of the 49ers roster heading into 2021 and gave his expectations of San Francisco's success amid a gritty NFC West division.
