That line was able to put a lot of a pressure on QBs and caused all sorts of issues for offensives that allowed the defense to excel. Current 49ers GM John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan are trying to build a defensive line that is as formidable as that line. The defensive line has been rebuilding for a few years with high draft picks, but it has not produced consistently other than DeForest Buckner. The offseason was used to add the final pieces that the defensive line needed. The team was lacking pass rushers on the edge, but 2 of the biggest additions should address that need. Dee Ford was signed as a free agent after having an excellent year last season with the Kansas City Chiefs and Nick Bosa was drafted with the #2 overall pick in the draft. If either or both of these players can generate a pass rush and DeForest continues to play like a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, this defense can be a top NFL defense. On Tuesday, the 49ers made a set of roster moves. Former offensive lineman Anthony Davis, who is trying to make a comeback, was released as was linebacker Pita Taumoepenu, a sixth round pick by the 49ers from 2017. The team resigned their former cornerback Dontae Johnson. Dontae spent the last year with the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, and the Kansas City Chiefs. He left the 49ers after the 2017 season. 49ers linksWas a big need and hopefully it finally produces this season | Defensive front 4 was a priority this offseason (Biderman)Facing better talent will help the 2nd year lineman | Mike McGlinchey going up against a revamped d-line (Smith)Start of the 2nd week of OTAs (Maiocco)Kayvon Webster (Alper)Both spots are up for grabs | Safety battles (Madson)Kayvon Webster in for a workout (Branch)Team releases Anthony Davis (Williams)Anthony Davis seeks reinstatement, cut by team (Madson)Still looking for depth in the secondary (Madson)Dontae is making his return | Pita cut, Dontae Johnson resigned (Inman)Roster moves (49ers staff)Former 49er returns (Biderman)Can Dontae make the final roster? | Dontae Johnson returns (Branch)Joe should absolutely end his career as a 49er | Joe Staley (Williams) ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Two defensive captains have been cut, a respected veteran retired and the team’s No. 1 receiver was traded away.The losses for the Oakland Raiders have been mounting on and off the field in recent weeks as a season that began with optimism has fallen apart at the midway point.After four straight losses, including a blowout by Bay Area rival San Francisco Roger Craig Jersey White , have left the Raiders (1-7) tied for the worst record in the NFL, it’s time to start looking to the future.To that end, coach Jon Gruden called in his rookie class Friday following the 34-3 loss to the 49ers and delivered a message to the group.“He was just telling us he needs more from us rookies,” defensive end Arden Key said Monday. “He needs more, more, more. He said we’re doing pretty good but he needs more. We need to lead the league in effort and we’re not doing that as rookies. … It was a wake-up call and we answered.”Little has gone right of late for the Raiders, who have been outscored by 85 points during a four-game losing streak. The team has also cut captains Bruce Irvin and Derrick Johnson during that span, watched cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie retire, and traded receiver Amari Cooper to Dallas for a first-round draft pick.That follows the trade one week before the start of the season that dealt star pass rusher Khalil Mack to Chicago for a package of picks, including two first-rounders.Oakland was last in the league with seven sacks before cutting ties with Irvin, who led the team with three. Only rookies Maurice Hurst (two sacks) and Key (one), along with Clinton McDonald (one) have sacks among players on the active roster.That’s why Gruden wants more from his rookie class that also features defensive tackle P.J. Hall.“I know right now the maturity level on this team has to rise up,” veteran defensive lineman Frostee Rucker said. “We just have to be a complete team and do the little things better. That’s what we’re starting with today, trying to do the little things better.”The Raiders also added some reinforcements Monday, signing defensive linemen Jacquies Smith and Kony Ealy to contracts.Ealy had 14 sacks in three seasons with Carolina from 2014-16, including three in a Super Bowl loss to Denver following the 2015 season. He was traded to New England in 2017, got cut by the Patriots and then signed with the New York Jets, where he had one sack in 15 games.Ealy spent training camp in Dallas before getting cut by the Cowboys on Sept. 1.Smith was originally signed as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and finally got his first chance to play in 2014 with Tampa Bay. He had 13 1/2 sacks in 27 games his first two seasons with the Buccaneers before suffering a major knee injury in 2016.Smith has played just seven games the past three seasons with Tampa, Detroit and Arizona, recording three tackles and no sacks in seven games. Smith was released by Arizona in September.Smith worked out for the Raiders in recent weeks and got the call Sunday, a day after Irvin was released. Smith said he feels as healthy as he has since before the injury and is eager for the chance to show what he can do.“It’s been very frustrating,” he said. “Obviously, I have a ton of confidence in myself. Obviously, I’ve made a ton of plays in this league. Just getting back and getting that opportunity to do that. I’m very confident in my ability. Obviously, these guys see something in me to give me a shot.”NOTES: The Raiders waived James Cowser. … LT Kolton Miller didn’t have a helmet at practice after re-injuring his right knee last Thursday. … LG Kelechi Osemele participated in practice despite injuring his knee again against the 49ers. … RB Marshawn Lynch stopped by practice for the first time since undergoing surgery on an injured groin last month.
