49ers prepare for facing J.J. Watt in his final game

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — For Mike McGlinchey, his “welcome to the NFL” moment came as a rookie back in 2018 with the San Francisco 49ers when he lined up against J.J. Watt in a joint practice in Houston and got flattened in a drill. McGlinchey and the 49ers will now get the chance to send Watt off into retirement when they face the three-time Defensive Player of the Year in his final NFL game. Watt was among the premier defensive players in the NFL during the early 2010s with Houston and ended his career with Arizona.
