The San Francisco 49ers will be having some very special guests at offseason workouts year as they’ll be joined by some Navy SEALs, who will be putting the players through a unique program of exercises and team-building events, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle.
The SEALs will be joining the 49ers sometime after workouts begin on April 16. Head coach Kyle Shanahan experienced the program when he was offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons in 2016 and said at the annual league meetings Tuesday he hopes it will rekindle the chemistry the team showed towards the end of their 2017 season.
“Going into our second year, I think our team is much more ready for this,” Shanahan said, per the Chronicle. “… People don’t get how much a team changes. Yeah, we’re going to go in and hopefully take off where we finished. But the team is going to look so different. You want to rekindle that because there are a lot of guys that know what they went through — but you do start over to a degree.”
