This is the second time the San Francisco 49ers have heard from the NFL this off-season. The 49ers had to end their rookie program early after too much contact was made during a one-on-one drill.
San Francisco is committed to abiding by the NFL’s policies moving forward.
‘The health and safety of our players is our highest priority, and we take following league rules very seriously. We will continue to work with the NFL and the NFLPA to ensure compliance,’” the 49ers reportedly said.

It appears Urban Meyer and the Jaguars, meanwhile, have some catching up to do. Meyer is in his first season as head coach, so it’s not a surprise he isn’t fluent in the league’s policies.
