San Francisco closed out their first block of training camp practices on Saturday, which was also their longest practice of the week. Unlike days prior, it's hard to discern if one side of the ball had a more superior showing, as there were several noteworthy plays across the board.

The second takeaway came by way of Jason Verrett, who made an easy interception off of a wobbly throw intended for Deebo Samuel.

Tenured Women of the Front Office: Esther Chi

"When I was hired as a staff accountant, the Accounting & Finance department totaled six full time staff," Esther recalled. "At that time, we were playing at Candlestick Park and our sole business was NFL football. I was an individual contributor and handled revenue accounting, sponsorship/suite billings and collections, and daily cash management."
