49ers under-the-radar future free agency problem

·1 min read

While Deebo Samuel’s contract extension and Jimmy Garoppolo’s future have dominated 49ers offseason headlines, there’s another contract story line that’s gone completely under the radar. None of the 49ers’ specialists are under contract for next year! If the 2023 season started today, San Francisco would have no long snapper, punter or kicker with Taybor Pepper, Mitch Wishnowsky and Robbie Gould all set to hit free agency. Could this be something that derails the 49ers in 2023? It’s too early to say, but while others speculate about the futures of Samuel, Garoppolo and Nick Bosa – don’t lose sight of what really matters in the 2023 offseason.
