San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Bryant Young watches practice at the 49ers practice facility in Santa Clara, Calif., Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2005.

That's incredible longevity in a business with the yearly turnover and daily drama of the NFL, but the veteran defensive lineman has done tougher things in his career. In fact, Young's about to try something even more difficult: moving to defensive end after a stellar career at tackle. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma)
NBC Bay Area first broke the story in late December -- and now it's official.
