The 49ers are still in the process of building the offensive line which will protect their franchise quarterback, and they brought back a familiar face yesterday.

The team announced the addition of journeyman guard Mike Person for a second stint there.

Person was originally a seventh-round pick in 2011, and has been with the Colts, Seahawks, Rams, Falcons, Chiefs, and Colts again before returning to his roots. His stint with the Falcons coincided with coach Kyle Shanahan’s time there as offensive coordinator.

Via Field Yates of ESPN, he emerged from a workout which also included Oday Aboushi, Josh LeRibeus, and Brian Schwenke, which gives an idea of what’s out there at the moment.

The 49ers used their first-round pick on tackle Mike McGlinchey, then traded right tackle Trent Brown to the 49ers. They also spent money on center Weston Richburg, and have otherwise shuffled the deck up front, bringing in former first-rounder Jonathan Cooper and cutting guard Zane Beadles.

  1. That interior Offensive Line is going to be really weak with two draft busts starting at Offensive-Guard and new rookie RT Mike McGlinchey is definitely going to take his lumps while he develops & will struggle as a rookie given the pass rushers he will see this year especially in the division. Against Arizona along he will have to block edge rushers Chandler Jones, Markus Golden & rotational 3rd pass rusher Benson Mayowa as well as much improved 1st round pick extremely athletic Hasson Reddick who will play that WLB role in their base defense but will also come off the edge at times which he is very good at excelling as a pass rusher as a rookie.

  2. The line was so bad last year. Can only go up. It goes to show you the difference in QB’s as Jimmy has a quick release and the line looked serviceable with Jimmy under center compared to CJ or Hoyer.

  3. The line is a concern. Yes, Trent Brown wasn’t a fit for Shanahan’s scheme but is their a better pass protector replacing him? Absolutely not. Garoppolo worked miracles with the line last season but it takes only one big shot to end his season. And that shot with the loss of Brown went up exponentially with the loss of Brown..

    Jimmy G, “the messiah” better “braceforimpact” as this o-line is one of the worst by far in pro football.

    Considering we actually got rid of the worst O-lineman from last season and Jimmy G performed as well as he did when it was terrible, then your comment seems as hopeless as the Cowboys playoffs chances.

    I sincerely hope medical advancements keep Jerruh alive for decades more to keep your team in perpetual mediocrity.

    I think the Cowboys have a better chance of making the playoffs than your “whiners”. You are still sore that the Boys invaded Santa Clara last year and the year before & beat up on your terrible team.

  6. The 49ers are still rebuilding and that includes the offensive line. That said, there is still an air of excitement going forward. A lot of Niners fans trust that Shanahan knows what he’s building. If I was a Cowboys fan I wouldn’t feel so confident. After a less then stellar junior performance, Dak Prescott still has a lot to prove and I would be very concerned about Garret and Jones being capable of rebuilding a contender after 8 seasons of disappointment. Go ahead Cowboy fans, call us a bunch of “Whiners”, we’ll see whose doing the most whining come December.

    Of course you do, you’re delusional. Invaded? Would that be like when AT&T was a sea of red and a Kap led Niners beat your team?

    ok vermon, we shall see in December & by that time everyone will have figured out Jimmy “messiah” and his huge 5 game winning streak will be long gone.

    Kap the previous “messiah” only lasted a few years and faded away like Jimmy G will. Your owner messed up big time by getting rid of Harbaugh who is a real coach not like that pencil neck Shanahan.

    See, there is common ground. I despise Jed York and his shyster parents and yes firing Harbaugh will go in the pantheon of all-time football blunders. Also building a human broiler of a stadium in the flight path of an airport was ingenious.

    However, Kap’s skill set (or lack thereof) was exposed quickly. Jimmy G is a traditional pocket passer who learned from a pretty good QB I hear.

  11. I see HK posted another manifesto. I love how the glass is half full with his Cardinals but half empty with the rest of the NFC West. He honestly shouldn’t post about any other team’s offensive line because his Cards were ranked 30th by PFF last season. No way that turnstile in AZ keeps Mr Glass Sam Bradford in one piece…and Rosen is just as soft and fragile. There’s a reason AZ has the worst odds to make the SB.

  12. I love the back and forth ranting amongst the Niner, Hawks, and Cardinals fans. Meanwhile the Rams will win the division again. Got to love it!
