49ers’ Marquise Goodwin asks fans to comment on his NFL future

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin typically shrugs off rumors on social media about his NFL future. That wasn't the case on Sunday when he asked fans via Instagram to voice their opinions on what is in store for the veteran wideout.

"Many say I'll get traded, many say I'll stay," wrote Goodwin. "Only ownership knows for sure. Would you like to see me stay (with the 49ers)? For the ones that hate me, where do you think I'll potentially go?"

A report by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network surfaced earlier this month, stating that Goodwin's name has been discussed in trade talks. He is set to count over $11 million against the salary cap over the next two seasons.

The NFL on Sunday set the salary cap for 2020 at $198.2 million — nearly $2 million less than expected. That gives the 49ers almost $13 million to play with, as of right now. That is a significantly smaller surplus than the team has owned over the past few seasons. That wasn't unexpected, considering the roster improved enough to get the team to the Super Bowl this past season.

San Francisco also has several players scheduled to hit free agency this week, including Arik Armstead, Emmanuel Sanders, and Jimmie Ward. It is also trying to work out long-term deals with key players like George Kittle and DeForest Buckner.

On the wide-receiver front, the 49ers hope to get Trent Taylor and possibly Jalen Hurd back in time for the upcoming season. The team saw Deebo Samuel emerge during his rookie campaign, as well.

San Francisco owns six selections in a deep receiver draft but doesn't currently hold a pick between rounds one and five. Adding some draft equity might go a long way toward remaining competitive, especially considering Sanders appears poised to test free agency.

Goodwin, 29, landed on injured reserve on December 10. He registered just 12 receptions for 186 yards with a touchdown through nine games and six starts this past season.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

NFL insider: Raiders became frustrated with Garoppolo for the same reason as 49ers

NFL insider Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated isn't sure what's next for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The one-time face of the San Francisco 49ers franchise signed a three-year, $67.5 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders last offseason. Less than a year later, it appears his tenure with the Raiders has ended. Garoppolo has been suspended for two games due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, and reports suggest that the Raiders are poised to part ways with the 32-year-old. Garoppolo saw action in just seven games this past season. Breer reports that the Raiders became frustrated with the veteran quarterback for similar reasons as

NFL insider wonders if Kyle Juszczyk could become a 49ers' cap casualty

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers would love to keep their Super Bowl roster intact heading into the 2024 season. However, with the team bumping up against the projected salary cap and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk seeking a contract extension, some difficult choices may be on the horizon. One NFL insider has singled out All-Pro fullback Kyle Juszczyk as a potential casualty as the 49ers attempt to navigate their financial situation. "Juszczyk has been in San Francisco for all seven of Kyle Shanahan's years as coach," Dan Graziano wrote in a recent feature for ESPN. "He is a vital part of the 49ers' offense and surely would be missed. He also turns 33 in April and is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in salary and bonuses in each of the next two seasons. None of that money is

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.
