The 49ers hired Chris Foerster as a consultant in the 2018 offseason. It did not become public knowledge until Friday.49ers coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to after news broke about Foersters employment with the team.If he was fully on our coaching staff Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , going to practice and going to games, I understand that its something that Id have to address, but hes not,�? Shanahan told Jennifer Lee Chan. Hes in a consulting role. A lot of teams have consultants. I understand the ramifications of that, and why people will ask why I didnt say anything about it.Foerster has not coached in the NFL since video surfaced Oct. 9, 2017, of him snorting a white powdery substance. He resigned as the Dolphins offensive line coach.Foerster and Shanahan spent four years together in Washington.We found out about it [the video] when the whole world found out about it,�? Shanahan said. When it happened Ugo Amadi Jersey , we were as shocked as anyone, from my wife to anybody. Its nothing Id want to stick up for. These are extremely bad things that I know hes not proud of, and Im not proud of.He did something extremely stupid, and since then, he has hit rock bottom. He went to rehab for 60 days, and then he was in a 90-day outpatient rehab. For the last two years, hes been in a 12-step program that hes been to every single night seven days a week.Shanahan said the 49ers hired Foerster with conditions attached. Foerster will have to earn a bigger role than watching film and attending position group and team meetings.Im just pulling for him that he can keep up with it, Shanahan said. If he does keep up with it Devin White Jersey , then whether its with the 49ers or with someone else, youre going to get a good person and a good coach. Arizona running back David Johnson believes it could be a grand year.Two grand, even.Johnson came close to having 1,000 yards rushing and receiving once before and believes he can do it under new coach Kliff Kingsburys high-octane offense.I definitely hope that a thousand/thousand is reachable and thats always going to be my goal, with the team coming first, Johnson said after organized team activities Wednesday.Only two running backs in NFL history have had 1,000 rushing and receiving in the same season: San Franciscos Roger Craig in 1985 and St. Louis Marshall Faulk in 1999. Johnson was close in a breakout 2016, when he had 1 L.J. Collier Jersey ,239 rushing yards and 879 receiving. Christian McCaffrey threatened last year with 1,098/867.Johnson has suffered through a pair of frustrating seasons since, however. He missed all but one game in 2017 after suffering a wrist injury in the season opener, and his totals were down when the Cardinals went 3-13 last year as defenses stacked the running lanes while daring rookie quarterback Josh Rosen to throw. Johnson gained 940 yards rushing (3.6 per carry) and 446 yards receiving.He sees a better fit now.I thinks it going to be a dynamic offense, Johnson said. I think it is going to be a lot different because we are going to be at home in the shotgun. Were spreading it out a little more. More space out there on the field. It is going to really helpful because only having to worry about one guy tackling you compared to three, four guys loading the box.I think it is going to be similar to 2016. I think it will be better for me and I will be utilized as a running back and a receiver. A lot more opportunities to get the ball. A lot more opportunities to score and help out the team. Im very excited.Kingsbury, whose offense at Texas Tech frequently lined up in four-wide receiver sets, called the halfback in his system pivotal.They have to be able to do it all Johnathan Abram Jersey , and we have a guy who can, Kingsbury said. Excited to use him in a bunch of different ways and try to get him the football You can tell he has run routes before. He looks like hell be a tough matchup on some linebackers.The Cardinals are in the early stages of installing their offense, but Johnson has seen enough to like the system.I like his mentality, Johnson said of Kingsbury. We are trying to get a lot of plays in on offense. No huddle, because it makes it hard for the defense to call plays. They might not call blitzes as much.I think hes been tremendous not just the offense but as a coach overall. Straight to the point. Telling guys what he expects out of the whole team . I like what it has been like. The personnel we have. There are so many weapons we added to the offense.Foremost, of course, is No. 1 draft choice quarterback Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner last year and the second straight Oklahoma quarterback to be taken with the first pick in the draft after Cleveland selected Baker Mayfield in 2018.First off Maxx Crosby Jersey , hes faster and quicker than I thought, Johnson said of his early look at Murray.And I think a lot of people underestimate how great he can throw. He throws an accurate dart. I see him in the quarterback drills, throwing it at the net, and hes hitting five in a row and stuff like that.Murray and Johnson seem to building a rapport.Hes been great at the game, Murray said of Johnson. Hes seen a lot of football. Hes played a lot of football. I think well be pretty versatile, as far as me and him go.
