SecurityOne of the few veterans not taking part in the team’s required minicamp this week is Talanoa Hufanga, who is still recovering from an ACL injury that ended his season.

Hufanga declared, “I’m feeling fantastic.” “Out there, I get a little too excited. I’m giddy with anticipation. It’s enjoyable. It’s a blessing that I get to watch practices on those days.”

The San Francisco 49ers are now in the midst of a three-day required minicamp after completing the optional phase of their offseason training regimen. The team’s final sessions before taking a 40-day break before training camp are this week.

The reigning AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year is staying in The Bay for the foreseeable future. McCaffrey came to the 49ers via a 2022 mid-season trade and his impact on San Francisco’s offense was immediate. The 49ers went on to score 30-plus points in seven of their final 10 regular season contests and finished top five in yards per game. In 2023, that production continued. The team closed out the year as a top-two offense in yards per game (398.4) and top three in points per game (28.9), and McCaffrey was once again one of the workhorses behind the offensive success. During his OPOY campaign, he led the NFL in rushing yards (1,459) and yards from scrimmage (2,023) while finishing tied for the most total touchdowns (21).
