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.

Deebo Samuel showing flashes of 49ers great Jerry Rice, says NFL.com

Deebo Samuel is the NFL's leading receiver through four weeks of play. He has 490 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns on 28 receptions, which puts him on pace for over 2,000 yards through 17 games. Now, a lot has to happen between now and the end of the season for Samuel to come anywhere close to that milestone. While Calvin Johnson was 36 yards shy of that mark in 2012, no one has reached it. Samuel would have to maintain his current pace and stay healthy to come close, even with the benefit of a 17-game season. While the receiving record would be a significant challenge, NFL Media researcher Dante Koplowitz-Fleming shares
