Ed Werder, Restricted Free Agent

A conversation with the former ESPN reporter about the uncertain future of sports journalism. 49ers CEO Jed York joins to review the 49ers draft

For this week's episode, I talked to former ESPN reporter Ed Werder and 49ers CEO Jed York. Werder details his quiet outrage on being laid off by ESPN and what the ESPN layoffs mean for the future of the journalism business. He explains why he changed his Twitter handle to @EdWerderRFA and talks about the stigma of getting laid off. Jed York on how his new John Lynch/Kyle Shanahan team did in their first draft, on being a lightning rod for angry 49er fans, and on what went wrong in his fiery relationship with Jim Harbaugh.
