Buccaneers DE Jacquies Smith visiting 49ers

Mar 24, 2017 at 12:15 PM--


Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free agent DE Jacquies Smith is visiting with the San Francisco 49ers, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.


Smith was signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2012. In addition to the Buccaneers, he has spent time with the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. In 2016, he suffered an ACL tear during the Buccaneers' first game of the season – a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

In the two seasons prior to his injury, Smith had 39 tackles, 13.5 sacks, three passes defended, and four forced fumbles. He was not a starter with the Buccaneers but was considered to be among the team's most effective pass-rushers.

Earlier this month, the Buccaneers placed an original-round tender on Smith. While the defensive lineman is a restricted free agent, he was undrafted. That means that a team like the 49ers could sign Smith without giving up draft compensation. He carries a salary of just under $1.8 million, according to Spotrac.com.

The NFL will release the entire 2022 schedule on May 12. Three days earlier, the matchups and dates of select games will be revealed. One of those will likely be the NFL kickoff game—the first game that kicks off the 272-game slate of matchups. Typically, the reigning Super Bowl champions will host that first game of the season. That means some team will need to travel to SoFi Stadium to try to hand the Los Angeles Rams an 0-1 start. Steve Smith Sr. of NFL Media is hoping the visiting team is the San Francisco 49ers. It's certainly a possibility. However, the Rams are also scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks.

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus provided his updated power rankings after the 2022 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers remained at the No.5 spot, with no movement post draft.

The impact John Lynch believes Drake Jackson will have on the 49ers defense

The San Francisco 49ers' first selection of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't come until day two on Friday. Thanks to last year's trade package to move up to select quarterback Trey Lance, the team lacked a first-round pick. When the Niners' first selection came around, at No. 61 overall, the team again opted to bolster its defensive line, selecting former USC defensive end Drake Jackson. San Francisco has now used its first selection on a defensive lineman in six of the past eight drafts. The 49ers have focused a lot on keeping its defensive line well-stocked with talent, believing that making the pass rush a top priority will help every other position on defense. San Francisco added veteran pass rusher Dee Ford in 2019, just before drafting Nick Bosa,
