Adam Schefter speculates on potential Bears and 49ers trade involving C.J. Beathard

Oct 28, 2019 at 6:17 PM--

San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard's name emerged on Sunday morning as a potential trade candidate, courtesy of Adam Schefter of ESPN. The NFL insider wrote via Twitter that the Niners were receiving some interest in the third quarterback on the depth chart, but didn't offer much more in terms of details.

The trade deadline is on Tuesday.

Schefter joined the "Kap & Co." show on ESPN Radio in Chicago on Monday and was asked if the Bears might be interested in Beathard. Fans in Chicago appear to have given up on their team after it fell under .500 on Sunday.

I must point out that Schefter's response is purely speculation, but it was an interesting take on the potential for a trade between Chicago and San Francisco.

"The 49ers, if someone made them an offer for a late-round pick (in exchange for Beathard), they'd take it," Schefter said. "Give them a — I'm making this up — a six or a seven. A seven that turns into a six, they'd take that, I think. Chicago, it might be worth a guy -- it's worth bringing in a guy for a seven."

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area is hearing otherwise. He reported on Sunday that the offers for Beathard have been in the sixth-round range and that San Francisco is unlikely to follow through on such a deal.

Schefter took the potential trade a step further.

"You know what?" he asked. "Now that I think about it, how about Taylor Gabriel for C.J. Beathard?"

The show's hosts paused for a second because they were looking to get draft picks back for someone like Gabriel.

"Quarterbacks are a currency, so you can never go wrong with a quarterback," Schefter continued. "Kyle Shanahan knows how to use Taylor Gabriel as well as anybody. They're winning, and Taylor Gabriel would be dangerous in that offense.

"But again, we're just spit-balling here, and who knows what the deal is. I'm sure that's probably not a trade that could happen."

Schefter went on to say maybe Gabriel to some NFL team for a sixth- or seventh-rounder could be a possibility.

It is important to note that the 49ers last week traded for Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, so the team has already upgraded the position. Would John Lynch and company be willing to bring in two receivers in the span of a week?

H/t to Marcus White of NBC Sports Bay Area for the find.

ESPN lists 49ers among potential first-to-worst teams in 2020

The San Francisco 49ers had a remarkable turnaround from 2018 to 2019. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan hope they have built something sustainable — a team that can compete for championships every year. But what if it's not sustainable? What if 2019's success was a fluke? The thought of the 49ers' impressive Super Bowl run being an abnormality is enough to kick off a heated debate among the Niner Faithful. Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders, in a feature for ESPN, listed San Francisco as a top candidate to go from first to worst. That means going from a division winner in 2019 to potentially fall

Seahawks GM admits 49ers TE George Kittle factored into decision to trade for Jamal Adams

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle can be a handful for opposing defenses. The first-team All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowl selection has recorded back-to-back seasons of over 1,000 receiving yards and highlights of him carrying New Orleans Saints defenders downfield may just be a preview of things to come. Kittle will likely sign a long-term deal sometime soon, meaning NFC West defenses will have to contend with him for the foreseeable future. The Seattle Seahawks gave up a haul for former New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. Some would criticize that they gave up too much. But in a division with Kittle lining up across from you twice a year, maybe Seattle felt it had to do something to close the gap on the defending NFC champions. Did it close

Richard Sherman believes disciplined and hungry 49ers won't let season get derailed

A lot of things could potentially derail the San Francisco 49ers' quest for redemption. The team is hungry to right a wrong that happened in February. The team is hungry to return to the Super Bowl and not let victory slip from its grip. COVID-19. A Super Bowl hangover. Regression. Injuries. A lot could go wrong. Distraction won't be an obstacle this season. From top to bottom, the 49ers are focused. That was evident from the State of the Franchise event in June when several players stated the goal is to emerge as Super Bowl champions. Even head coach Kyle Shanahan is focused on getting back to that
