SANTA CLARA C. J. Beathard Jersey White , Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers will honor former tight end Dwight Clark with a season-long celebration of his life that will include unveiling a statue of “The Catch.”Clark died in June at age 61. He suffered from ALS.All 49ers players will wear 87 helmet decals throughout the season, and Levi’s Stadium field bunting will pay tribute to Clark during all 49ers games.The statue outside of Levi’s Stadium will be revealed on Oct. 21 when the 49ers host the Rams. The 350-pound statues of Clark and Joe Montana will be placed 23 yards apart — the distance covered on the famed winning play in the 1981 NFC championship game. The representation of Clark, with his hands outstretched, will extend 11 feet in the air.During the game, an 87 marking will be in the end zone commemorating the location of “The Catch Cassius Marsh Jersey White ,” which actually came at Candlestick Park, the team’s previous home.The Rams-49ers matchup will serve as the 49ers’ annual alumni game, with funds raised to support Clark’s charity of choice, the Golden Heart Fund. That fund was established in 2016 to support 49ers alumni in need of financial, medical , psychological or emotional support.“Almost four decades ago, Dwight Clark’s miraculous catch launched the San Francisco 49ers into an era of excellence,” 49ers CEO Jed York said. “Since that time, he has served as an inspirational figure to citizens of the Bay Area and beyond. Dwight has meant so much to so many, and it is only fitting that our organization continues to carry on his wonderful legacy. The 2018 season provides us a tremendous opportunity to celebrate the life of a very special man Womens Tom Rathman Jersey , while also raising awareness for the Golden Heart Fund, which was so dear to his heart.“Dwight lived his life with great compassion for others, and we want to honor that legacy by raising funds to support his 49ers brothers.” Garrett Celek’s spot may not be safe." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesNiners Nation homepageHorizontal - WhiteNiners Nationa San Francisco 49ers communityFollow Niners Nation online:Follow Niners Nation on TwitterFollow Niners Nation on FacebookFollow Niners Nation on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchNiners Nation main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibrary49ersOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference CallsKaden Smith has one heck of an opportunity in front of himNew,31commentsGarrett Celek’s spot may not be safe.

Celek had a terrible 2018. This is attributed to a broken thumb he suffered. His offseason hasn’t been great either. He’s still in the concussion protocol and recovering from back surgery. Most concussion protocols last one-two weeks, not months into the offseason. Well, Celek will be out into the 2019 season also. Weeks into the 2019 season. “Celek is for sure going to be after Week 6,” Kyle Shanahan said in his Friday press conference. So a training camp and six weeks into the season. The 49ers don’t have much behind George Kittle at tight end. Kaden Smith has himself an excellent opportunity to impress the coaching staff and lockdown that No. 2 tight end spot. Smith is a competitive guy too. He earlier said he wanted to one day compete with Kittle for the starting tight end job on the 49ers. Keep in mind; this is the same Kittle that shattered records in 2018. If Smith makes the most of his opportunity, Celek may find himself out of a job at the end of the season. 2019 is a contract year for him and if Smith can rise to the occasion Womens Steve Young Jersey , Celek may be a casualty in 2020.
