49ers players joined many of their peers around the league in issuing a statement regarding their plans for the in-person portion of the offseason program.

Their statement said that “many in our locker room have chosen not to attend some or all phases of the voluntary in-person workouts.” The start of Phase Two on Monday suggests that won’t be the case for this phase.

Matt Maiocco of NBCSportsBayArea.com reports that more than 80 players participated on Monday. Phase Two runs through the end of the week and allows for on-field work, but no offense vs. defense drills.

That level of participation has been similar for many other teams around the league on Monday and there’s been word of widespread absences for any team.

  1. It is pretty simple unless the player is a star QB or a few other players that basically have untradeable/ uncuttable (large dead cap hit) contracts the players are going to show up to increase their chances of making the team, instead of following the NFLPA and don’t show up, get no reps and get cut pretty quick for a player that does show-up.

    It is all about reps, the less you get the more likely you get cut.
