But it didn't stop with him.
49ers players throughout the roster already are thinking of everything they can do to make another run at it, and that includes bringing back free-agent receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Fellow wideout Deebo Samuel made it clear Wednesday on Twitter that he wants to see the 49ers bring back the 32-year-old veteran.
I know it ain't my call but I want my bruddah @ESanders_10 back on the squad so he can get him another Super Bowl ring 🤷🏾♂️🙏🏾

Sanders showed his appreciation later Wednesday morning.
After coming over from the Denver Broncos via trade in October, Sanders excelled with the 49ers. He caught 36 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season, and added five receptions for 71 yards in the postseason.
But Sanders could have been an even more critical part of 49ers lore, had it not been for Jimmy Garoppolo's overthrown pass with less than two minutes remaining in Super Bowl LIV. But it was not meant to be.
Sanders has been open about his love for the team that had just barely missed the championship and has spoken out about those second-guessing him due to his age.
The receiver laughed at the fact that he has been "flying past 23-year-olds," and exhorted that he still has plenty of good years left in him.
He also embraced the youth the other wide receivers brought to the team, such as Samuel and Kendrick Bourne. Sanders loved the loose vibes of the 49ers' locker room and assisted the younger players in prepping for the big moments of the Super Bowl.
Deebo surely noticed that and knows he wants his teammate back for the team's quest to make another Super Bowl run next season.
