Kendrick Bourne creates Twitter chatter by hinting desire for 49ers to add Dez Bryant

Jun 21, 2020 at 7:44 PM--


This past week, offensive tackle Trent Williams hinted at a desire for his San Francisco 49ers to take a hard look at trading for Jamal Adams by tagging the New York Jets safety in an Instagram post. Another 49ers player may be interested in having a different high-profile player join his team.

Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne on Sunday tweeted at the 49ers and veteran free agent wideout Dez Bryant. Then, Bryant responded (h/t to Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area).


Of course, none of this means that a potential signing is imminent. It is likely just two players showing respect for one another and interacting on social media. It could also be Bourne helping his team look for options to temporarily replace injured receivers Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr., who are expected to miss some time. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot while James fractured his right wrist.

Bryant, a former Dallas Cowboy, is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named a first-team All-Pro in 2014. He attempted a return to the NFL with the New Orleans Saints in 2018 but suffered a torn Achilles tendon two days after signing.

Bryant, 31, has 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards with 73 touchdowns over his eight NFL seasons. His last game appearance came in 2017.

The Cowboys selected Bryant out of Oklahoma State with the No. 24 overall pick in 2010. The veteran receiver expressed an interest in joining San Francisco while searching for a new NFL home in 2018.

Former NFL defensive lineman Bryant Young this year will become the 29th inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame. His name was among several former 49ers players listed among the 130 nominees listed for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021. Linebacker Patrick Willis was among the 25 players listed as modern-era semifinalists in November of 2019 but, shockingly to some, did not make the trimmed-down list of 15 in January. Below are the former 49ers players among the most-recent nominees,

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

By Gilbert Brink

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
