The San Francisco 49ers are among the teams reportedly showing interest in New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett, per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. Other interested teams include the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders.


It was just reported that the 49ers plan to sign Chicago Bears TE Logan Paulsen so it is unknown if that changes the team's interest in Bennett.

Update:
Bennett is not on the 49ers' radar, per CSN Bay Area.


In 2016, Bennett had 55 receptions for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in his only season with New England. He also had 11 receptions for 98 yards in the postseason and got a Super Bowl championship out of it. Bennett's best season came in 2014 when he had 90 receptions for 916 yards and six touchdowns with the Chicago Bears. He has also spent time with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

The 6-foot-6 tight end turns 30 on Friday. Over his nine-year career, Bennett has 403 receptions for 4,287 yards and 30 touchdowns. He was drafted by Dallas in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M.

ESPN's Jordan Schultz recently reported that the New England Patriots are no longer pursuing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, watching John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan being chatty with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniel at Alabama's pro day on Tuesday is enough to create more speculation. What were they discussing? Was it where they got their morning coffee? Was Belichick sharing where to obtain golfing attire? Did Garoppolo's name come up at any point during the socialization? ESPN's Dianna Russini doesn't believe that Belichick and company have given up hope of reuniting with Garoppolo in New England, especially after San Francisco

Nick Bosa was one of several ("several" may be an understatement) San Francisco 49ers who suffered injuries last season. The young pass rusher's injury was season-ending. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 2. Bosa appears to be recovering nicely. On Thursday, he posted a new workout video on social media, which was captured and shared by our friends over at @OurSF49ers_. The video shows Bosa running with a weight sled tied to his waist, and he doesn't appear to be hampered by his left knee injury. Nick Bosa's ACL recovery looks to be going amazing, you love to see it 🙌🏼

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:
