On the 49ers’ upgrades on offense this offseason: “Getting guys like Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd, that really helps. I look at Stevie Johnson as a Victor Cruz-type guy. I will take that anytime. I’d like to think that somebody will always be open.”

On loving the game: “I’m a football player. That’s what I do. I love to play, and that’s what I want to do.”

On his involvement with Fantex, making himself a stock: “It’s pretty cool. It’s pretty impressive on all aspects. It’s a game-changer for athletes. I don’t feel more pressure to perform as a stock, but it is a beautiful concept that motivates athletes to be their owners and CEOs of their own brand, and that never stops building.”

On Colin Kaepernick’s new contract: “It’s a pretty impressive deal. I’m elated for Colin. He has such a good story. He works so hard. It’s an honor to play with him.”
