Over the past few days, Matt Maiocco has been hinting at a possible trade in his Press Democrat blog, Instant 49ers. Could the San Francisco 49ers be targeting a cornerback?

When asked by a fan about a potential trade for a cornerback, Maiocco replied with the following:

I have credible information that something could happen. You'll be the first to know when I get it nailed down.

When asked again about the potential trade for a corner, Maiocco said this:

As for the news about the CB, you'll know when I get it nailed down. I don't want to start any rumors.

Maiocco has been very careful not to drop any player or team names but appears to feel that something may be in the works. The 49ers are currently ranked 25th in the league against the pass allowing 224 yards per game.
