Zane Beadles went from the Denver Broncos to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They wanted him to be a leader in the offensive line room and had to take 5 rookies on the offensive line under his wing. It was challenging only winning 7 games in two years. But it helped him become a great leader. He likes seeing the success of the Jaguars. He then went to the 49ers and they weren’t winning either. But now they won a ton of games at the end of the year with Jimmy Garoppolo. Zane says it is a combination of the addition of Jimmy and the guys just picking it up and stepping up. They had a lot of young guys who were still learning to win games in the NFL.
Scott brings up former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick the national anthem protest. Zane says it wasn’t a polarizing thing in the locker room. There were guys who agreed with him and guys who didn’t agree with him. Zane believes that you should stand for the anthem and place your hand over your heart. He also believes that Colin should have approached the team first before he did the protest. Was the protest a distraction? Zane didn’t think it was. He doesn’t pay attention to the media. Even what the 49ers put out to their media. But he noticed it was some distraction when they were on the road.
Zane Beadles has the “Zane Beadles Parade Foundation.” It is a mission to provide kids with the opportunity to be kids while they are going through treatments. Zane gives them opportunity to just be a kid. Maybe tickets to a game, or surfing lessons (when he was in Jacksonville).
