The long 49-year-old sniper Kyle Nelson in Sunday’s victory over the Giants had trouble getting a click on the owner Mitch Wisnowski. His fight ended with just one point in San Francisco, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said it was not something the club would take lightly.
In response to Nelson’s performance, the 49 had four long training jumpers on Tuesday, including Andrew DePaola, Tabor Pepper, Garrison Sanborn and Drew Scott, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner.
Sanborn played three games with the 49ers last season. He was one of three long-range snipers the team used while Nelson was eliminated for the first six games.
There is no guarantee that the club will move from Nelson, who they liked enough to sign for a four-year extension for last season. However, if he is unable to correct any problem that led to his bad click on Sunday, they will certainly not hesitate to move in another direction.
