The 49ers signed Sanu late last season and it appears he has the inside track to make the roster this year. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, who worked with Sanu with the Atlanta Falcons, said it will be hard to beat Sanu out for a spot.

The Cardinals made it out of the offseason program without any major injuries. The 49ers, who were ravaged by injuries last year, had two major losses before OTAs concluded. Defensive back Tarvarius Moore tore his Achilles and offensive lineman Justin Skule tore his ACL. Both will miss the 2021 season.

The Cardinals, after working with team leadership, rather than having 10 OTAs and three days of minicamp, cut that down to three OTAs and minicamp. The 49ers also cut their offseason short. After having nine OTAs, they canceled the final one and mandatory minicamp. Coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to make sure they had enough of a break before training camp and, between the good participation and the injuries sustained, decided to wrap things up.
