Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat has reported that the only two free agents to visit the 49ers facility in Santa Clara today were cornerback Nate Clements and safety Michael Lewis.
It was reported yesterday that linebacker Adalius Thomas was supposed to visit the 49ers today. John Clayton of ESPN said that Thomas' visit to Santa Clara "hit a snag." That snag may be the New England Patriots as reports from numerous sources are saying that Thomas is headed there first. New England and San Francisco are considered to be the top two suitors for Thomas' services.
"Those are the possibilities," said agent Bus Cook, who was waiting for Thomas to undergo a brief out-patient surgery on Friday before talking to Thomas about possible visits. The surgery, whatever it may be, is reported to be very minor.
Word from Yahoo! Sports is that San Francisco could offer Thomas in excess of $20 million in guaranteed money.
Bennett and Banta-Cain in St. Louis
Maiocco also states that wide receiver Drew Bennett is in St. Louis today visiting the Rams. Linebacker Tully Banta-Cain is also in St. Louis.
