49ers open to trading Dee Ford, Kwon Alexander, Marquise Goodwin, and Jaquiski Tartt, per report

Apr 20, 2020 at 11:00 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are looking to free up some more salary cap room, according to Michael Lombardi of The Athletic. That isn't surprising. It is a bit of a shock that Lombardi states that the team is open to trading several of its players. They include pass rusher Dee Ford, linebacker Kwon Alexander, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, and safety Jaquiski Tartt, per the report.


We already knew the 49ers were willing to trade Goodwin, per a previous report. The other names are new ones. Ford and Alexander joined the team last offseason. San Francisco traded a second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for Ford and signed Alexander as a free agent.

That would be quite the overhaul for a defense that was among the best in the league last year. The unit ranked No. 2 in total yards allowed, No. 1 against the pass, and No. 8 in points allowed.

Alexander recently restructured his contract, freeing up some salary-cap space, so the inclusion of his name is curious. Although, he does still have hefty salaries in future years.

The 49ers currently own the No. 13 and No. 31 overall picks, along with five other selections in the backend of the draft. The team lacks a pick between rounds one and five, and a report on Monday morning states that it would be willing to trade down from either or both of its first-round selections.

Rumors and smokescreens typically emerge during the week leading to the draft, making it difficult for fans to know what to believe. We'll have to wait to see how (or if) this develops.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The 49ers received some better-than-expected news this week regarding Trent Williams. Scans didn't show any broken bones or even a high-ankle sprain after the veteran Pro Bowl offensive tackle suffered an injury during Sunday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. "So, that was good news," Shanahan told reporters, "but (he's) still in too much pain to practice today, and I know he'll be questionable throughout the week. Hopefully, it will get better each day, but it's not there

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Starting safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward have been ruled out for Sunday. Tartt is dealing with a groin injury and has not practiced at all this week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Ward suffered a strained quad during Thursday's practice and didn't dismiss the possibility that the safety could miss multiple games. "It could (be a multi-week injury). They gave it, I think, a 1.5 grade," Shanahan said. "I don't think it would be real long, but we know for sure he's not going to make the trip with us, and we hope that'll help him get a chance to be ready for next
