49ers expected to be ‘extremely competitive’ for CB A.J. Bouye

Mar 7, 2017 at 3:25 PM--


According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the San Francisco 49ers are among the teams that are expected to show interest in Houston Texans CB A.J. Bouye. The other teams that Wilson names are the Texans, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts, and Cleveland Browns.


Bouye, 25, finished last season with 63 tackles, one interception, and a sack through 15 games and 11 starts. He is considered to be among the best cornerbacks available in free agency. Teams are currently allowed to negotiate with agents of players but cannot actually execute contracts until Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific.

The 49ers recently released WR Torrey Smith and S Antoine Bethea, which reportedly gives them over $99 million in salary cap space heading into free agency.

Bouye was signed as an undrafted free agent out of UCF by the Texans in 2013. In 2016, he was the third-highest graded cornerback according to Pro Football Focus.

The San Francisco 49ers and star tight end George Kittle are currently working on a contract extension. The two sides have been for awhile. No one outside of the franchise knows how close the two sides are. What is known is the type of money Kittle is seeking. Kittle wants to be paid like a top offensive tackle or wide receiver. His agent went public with this info nearly a month ago. Since then there has been silence from both sides. They could be far apart. Heck, they could have already agreed considering the team managed to keep DeForest Buckner's permission to seek a trade and head coach Kyle Shanahan's extension secrets for MONTHS. It wouldn't be surprising if they aren't close however. This is because the 49ers hold every ounce of leverage in this situation

49ers Offense Will Be Even Better in 2020

By Gilbert Brink

In 2019, the 49ers fielded one of the very best offenses in the NFL. Come this fall, the 49ers offense will be even better. This past season the 49ers ranked 4th in the league in total yards, 2nd in the league in rushing yards and 2nd in the league in points per game. Truth be told, there isn't much room for improvement. Or is there? While they could only improve slightly in league ranking, they certainly can improve in terms of overall production heading into Kyle Shanahan's fourth year as head coach/offensive play-caller. In Super Bowl 54 it was apparent that the 49ers needed just a little bit more. Clinging to a 20-10 lead with just over 7 minutes to go, the 49ers failed to answer the bell rung by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. With these few key changes made
