John Lynch: 49ers actively discussing trades for Marquise Goodwin; no ‘active’ conversations for others

Apr 20, 2020 at 2:50 PM--

There was a report last month that the San Francisco 49ers are shopping wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. General manager John Lynch confirmed that on Monday afternoon during a Zoom conference call with reporters. The team has been actively discussing potential trades for the veteran wideout.

Lynch noted that some trade conversations have come close, but nothing has materialized yet.

"The one thing I feel comfortable saying: the one guy where there's actively discussions going on right now is Marquise Goodwin," Lynch told reporters. "That's something we've been clear on. But there's also a scenario where Marquise can help us. He brings a lot to the table.

"We have been in discussions. It came close a couple of times. There's a lot of different aspects to being able to close these deals, and he's a guy, because we know he has value, we continue to hang on, and we'll see if something happens here as we approach (the draft)."

Three other names surfaced on Monday morning when Michael Lombardi of The Athletic reported that the 49ers were also looking to open up some salary-cap space by shopping pass rusher Dee Ford, linebacker Kwon Alexander, and safety Jaquiski Tartt.

Lynch would not confirm whether or not the Niners are willing to move any of those players, but did say that there haven't been any "active" trade discussions surrounding them.

"Marquise is the one guy out of that group that you mentioned where there's active discussions going on," Lynch continued. "The other guys (from the report by Lombardi) we love and are really looking forward to playing with moving forward."

Bill Barnwell of ESPN proposed 13 trades that could happen before the deadline on November 3. The San Francisco 49ers are involved in two hypothetical scenarios. The first is a trade that sends defensive back Tarvarius Moore to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for tight end David Njoku. Barnwell notes the Browns' desperation to find help at the safety position, and the 49ers could use someone to help replace injured tight end Jordan Reed, who suffered an MCL sprain on September 27.

Running back Raheem Mostert suffered an ankle injury on Sunday night during the San Francisco 49ers' 24-16 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't sure yet about the severity of the injury. "No, we don't know yet on Raheem," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "I'm sure we'll find out tomorrow. I know he tried to come back. I think he did at the end of the second quarter. He tried to come back in. I think he did one play in the third quarter, and then he couldn't go." Mostert finished the game with 17 carries for 65 rushing yards and added two catches for 11 receiving yards. The 49ers coach knows what Mostert means to his offense.

John Lynch, 49ers confident in Jimmy Garoppolo, but QB will have to prove himself vs. Rams

Even sitting with a 2-3 record, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has no shortage of confidence in his team's ability to step onto the football field and beat anyone. That includes Sunday night's opponent, the Los Angeles Rams. To do that, though, the 49ers will need Jimmy Garoppolo to perform a whole lot better than he did this past weekend against the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback was playing on an injured ankle, which impacted his play, but he's practiced all week and is expected to start against the Rams. "The doctors cleared Jimmy (before Sunday's game)," Lynch said Friday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He was ready to go. They felt like he could protect himself." That changed after two quarters of play. Head
