There is no question that San Francisco 49ers LB Dan Skuta has been a blue collar, high character player since signing with the team last off-season. A special-teams ace with the versatility to add depth at both linebacker spots, Skuta has always been a true grinder with the right mind-set, and today was no different. With OTA’s officially underway for the 49ers as today was the first day, Skuta wasted no time in getting back to work, as he was present despite it being his birthday.

He could have took the day off and threw in the towel, but Skuta’s not that type of person. And with him playing an even bigger role in 2014 as OLB Aldon Smith will likely be suspended for at least part of the 2014 season, it will be up to players like Skuta to be the next-man up. With Skuta turning 28, we would like to wish him a Happy Birthday as he prepares for another great season in red and gold.
