49ers may need security to pair with All-Pro Hufanga

SANTA CLARA — Talanoa Hufanga may need a new wing to form the 49ers’ next safety tandem.

Tashaun Gipson, a veteran regular who arrived just before last season, is out of contract for 2023.

So does Jimmie Ward, who made no secret of his disdain last season as he returned to the nickel and lost his free bouncer job to Gipson while injured.

Also scheduled for free agency is Tarvarius Moore, a once promising safety who has evolved into a special teams ace.

Hufanga, fresh off his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro, can’t patrol the elite defense alone — and especially not with an aggressive nature that occasionally led to big breaks last season.

If the 49ers lose safeties in free agency, maybe others can come along. Here’s a look at that landscape:


Hufanga, George Odum, Tayler Hawkins

Hufanga is entering his third season, so there are many tapes of him, as he was helped by a veteran sidekick. Odum is a special teams star, not a starting safety. Hawkins was a standout on the 49ers’ scouting team last season after coming in as an undrafted rookie.
