      The 49ers wrapped up day two of OTAs, and the media was on hand. We’ve got a few details. The San Francisco 49ers held their second day of OTAs on Tuesday, and it was the first in front of the media. The media had a chance to observe part of an earlier phase, but this marked the first time media has seen full offense vs. defense drills.
