The San Francisco 49ers have settled on a starting right guard, and it's a player the team only recently acquired.
The 49ers traded for Devey on August 18 and he is now the team's starting right guard.
“He’s a guy that’s started numerous games in this league,” head coach Jim Tomsula told ESPN. “There’s a calmness about him, O.K.? There's a calmness about him in there playing the game, and I’m talking about in himself. He’s a good football player. He’s a smart guy. Came in here and really got it quick. [We] just like where he’s at.”
Devey played for the New England Patriots last year, appearing in seven games and starting four of them. He only played nine snaps against the Broncos in the 49ers' third preseason game.
“He’s come in, he’s taken the time, he’s got the system," Tomsula said. "Love the practice tape so that’s where we’re going ... He’s gotten a lot of reps in practice with the scheme that we’re running.”Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
