Whether you want to see if a player can handle more responsibility, or play an entirely different role [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Brock-Coyle-Jersey]https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Brock-Coyle-Jersey[/url] , May and June are the perfect time to do so. In the case of the San Francisco 49ers, they are doing just that. The big news has been Tarvarius Moore practicing at free safety this week. That’s not the only news in the secondary. New defensive backs coach Joe Woods told the media that the safeties will be more interchangeable this year. Early on in OTAs, there’s been a noticeable difference where Adrian Colbert and Jaquiski Tartt have been lining up.According to PFF, last year Tartt played 290 snaps in the box/slot while playing 111 as the single-high safety. For Colbert, he played 33 snaps in the box/slot, and 285 as the single-high safety. Woods wants to be more multiple, and be able to give the offenses more looks. It could be as simple as if a wide receiver goes in motion across the formation, instead of Tartt following him [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com]https://www.49ersfanshop.com[/url] , he drops back as the deep safety, and Colbert comes down in the slot. Another example would be both safeties start high, and Colbert would now go to the middle of the field, or somewhere underneath, instead of that always being Tartt. Both players seem excited about the opportunity. Here’s Tartt:Colbert is up from 195 pounds to 210 pounds, knowing that his role would be different in 2019. Seeing how much of an influence Woods has on the defense will be something to keep an eye on. Woods had been with the Denver Broncos from 2015-2018. During that time the Broncos had one of the more aggressive, ball-hawking secondaries in the league. Their pass defense was historically good during his first two years. If there’s a coach that can right this ship, it’s Woods.Tevin on the moveKyle Shanahan is no stranger to moving guys around. RB Tevin Coleman said that Shanahan [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com/customized]San Francisco 49ers Customized Jerseys[/url] , the head coach, is more creative than Shanahan the offensive coordinator.If the 49ers break the huddle with three running backs on the field, one of them will likely be matched up against a linebacker. That’s advantage Niners. You’ll take that every day of the week. I’m excited to see what tricks Shanahan has up his sleeve with the different weapons he has at his disposal on offense. The San Francisco 49ers announced on Sunday they have released linebacker Reuben Foster following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence. This was Foster’s third arrest this year, and his second on suspicion of domestic violence. He was granted $2,000 bail in a Tampa court Sunday morning.There are a host of questions to be answered following Foster’s release, so here are a few of the nuts and bolts as to what’s next for the 49ers, Foster, and the league.Transaction and waiversThe NFL does not process transactions on Sunday [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com/t-shirts]San Francisco 49ers T-Shirts[/url] , and so it will process at 1 p.m. PT on Monday. Teams will then have 24 hours to place a waiver claim on Foster, with that being processed at 1 p.m. PT on Tuesday. If a team claims him, they will take on his base salary, while the 49ers would eat the remaining prorated signing bonus money.Foster disciplineWhether or not a team claims him, he will face discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He was suspended for two games this season specific to the marijuana and weapons possession cases. The baseline suspension for domestic violence is six games, but the NFL has never been consistent in their application of domestic violence discipline. If he ends up getting disciplined for this arrest, your guess is as good as mine as to the length of the suspension.Salary capThis counts as a post-June 1st cut, which means dead money will be split between this season and next season. If we assume a team does not claim Foster off waivers [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com/hats]https://www.49ersfanshop.com/hats[/url] , the 49ers would carry $3,678,954 in dead money this year and $2,355,660 in dead money next year. It is possible the team might try and require repayment of some of his signing bonus given the nature of the release, but there is on word yet on what they may or may not do in that regard.Depth chartFor Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 49ers will start Fred Warner at the middle linebacker position, Malcolm Smith at weak side linebacker [url=https://www.49ersfanshop.com/hoodie]San Francisco 49ers Hoodie[/url] , and either Mark Nzeocha or Dekoda Watson at strong side linebacker. That will likely be the plan the rest of the season, with Elijah Lee will be the primary backup at MIKE and WILL. The team will likely promote James Onwualu from the practice squad, and/or sign a veteran option to provide depth.2019The 49ers drafted Fred Warner this past year, and he has settled in as the team’s MIKE linebacker of the future. Malcolm Smith is not a long term answer at the WILL position, so the team will likely address the position this offseason. I don’t think we necessarily see them investing a first round pick in the position, but I could see a late day two or early day three pick.
