  • Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Keith Fahnhorst died at the age of 66 on Tuesday Chris Doleman Jersey , according to a release from the team.

    Fahnhorst was a second-round pick of the 49ers in 1974 and spent his entire 14-year NFL career with the franchise. He was a two-time first-team All-Pro (1983, 1984) and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1985. He was also a member of the 49ers’ two Super Bowl championship teams in 1980’s.

    Fahnhorst appeared in 193 games, which ranks as the second-most among 49ers offensive linemen behind Len Rohde and the eighth-most regular season appearances in franchise history. He was also a two-time recipient (1981, 1986) of the 49ers Bobb McKittrick Award, which is given annually to the 49ers offensive lineman who best represents the courage, intensity and sacrifice displayed by the longtime offensive line coach Mike Daniels Jersey , during his 21 years of service to the 49ers.

    Washington Redskins rookie Derrius Guice is learning there is plenty to learn about his new professional football life.

     

    In the days since selected late in the second round of last month’s NFL draft, the running back attended the team’s rookie minicamp and the four-day NFLPA’s Rookie Premiere event in California. The latter is designed to help players understand the business and marketing side of their new career.

    ”It was very tiring. A lot of long days,” Guice said. ”In the end, a lot of it will pay off. Something all the rookies need going into the NFL.”

    Guice already went through plenty. Various controversies- some over maturity concerns for the 20-year-old player, others possibly mere unfounded rumors – caused a draft slide to the 59th overall spot. That hasn’t kept Guice down nor kept him from maintaining focus.

    ”I’m handling everything, man. I’m just ready to get to the season Marshon Lattimore Jersey ,” Guice said.

    Other parts of his football education come from his new teammates, such as quarterback Alex Smith and tight end Vernon Davis. The two veterans are each 34 years old, which means they began their career when Guice was in elementary school.

    The three were among players and team officials at the Army-Navy Country Club for the annual Redskins Charity Golf Classic on Monday morning. As the former LSU standout finished his session with local reporters, Guice spotted Davis.

    ”How old was I when you got in the league?” the rookie joked.

    Standing a few steps away, Davis laughed and responded, ”Six? Seven?”

    The tight end might have the timeline wrong – Davis was selected sixth overall in the 2006 draft when Guice was 10 – but the age-gap point remains. Guice and the other first-year players have already been around the veterans for some informal workouts. Three weeks of Organized Team Activities (OTA) begin Tuesday.

    ”Just getting out there with the vets. It’s always different than just practicing with the rookies Adam Thielen Jersey ,” Guice said. ”When you’re out there with the guys who are out there like Vernon, who is 34, has been in the league since I was 10. Just getting out there with those guys and seeing how they help their bodies stay clean and young throughout the years. Them training you how to be professional inside and outside the building.”

    Guice isn’t the only one on the roster learning about Smith. Washington acquired the 13-year veteran in a stunning trade with Kansas City in January.

    ”He’s a very smart guy,” Guice said of Smith, who led the NFL with 104.7 QB-rating last season. ”He’s willing to help the rookies. He’s not one of those guys who, if the rookie messes up Kiko Alonso Jersey , is like get him out of there. He’s willing to help you and work with you.”

    As for the passing part, Guice said, ”(Alex) has an arm, yeah.”
