49ers hosts Denver Broncos in joint practices

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos met for the first assembly of their two joint practice sessions today, August 17, outside the Levi’s Stadium.

The Denver Broncos visited the San Francisco 49ers for the Week 2 of 2017 NFL preseason games prior to the start of much-awaited regular season.

And both organization will take part in joint practices at the SAP Performance training facility outside Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on August 16 and 17.

The nearby resident have been invited to attend the Wednesday practice between the Broncos and 49ers. The Denver and San Francisco have held similar joint practices in two consecutive years, and this joint practice marks the third straight year. The Niners previously visited Englewood, just outside of Denver, to visit the Broncos facility.

It’s not socking that the Broncos and 49ers will square off against each other. The 49ers general manager John Lynch has strong connections with Broncos GM John Elway, and these two chiefs have certainly continued a well-built working relationship between their respective organizations.

The San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that both franchises will wear full pads on Wednesday, and just shoulder pads on the following day of their joint practices.

These joint practices do have some benefit, as they allow both clubs to work against professional American football players with whom they’re not entirely familiar with. And coaching staffs typically are quick to step in and make sure that nothing goes on the far side of the typical competitiveness between the two organizations.

Both practices kick off at 1 p.m. EDT in Santa Clara on August 16 and 17. The San Francisco 49ers are then scheduled to have a walk through on Friday, August 18.
