Rumor suggests 49ers might be ‘testing the waters’ on Jadeveon Clowney

Jul 31, 2020 at 2:43 PM--


Could the San Francisco 49ers be interested in free-agent pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney? A recent rumor from thepick6.com is suggesting that is the case.

It is important to stress that I have no information on this source's track record when it comes to the 49ers-related rumors, and no one else seems to be reporting this information outside of referencing this specific source.

Take it for what it is worth. Maybe nothing. Maybe something.

With that said, here is the tweet that has been creating a little bit of buzz over the last few hours.


The tweet notes that nothing is imminent. If the report is accurate, it could be the 49ers merely reaching out to see what it might take to add the three-time Pro Bowl selection to an already strong defensive front that includes pass rushers Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, and Arik Armstead.

The Houston Texans traded Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks before the start of last season in exchange for a third-round draft pick and two players. He was not re-signed and became a free agent in March.

Clowney has recorded 236 tackles, 32 sacks, 14 passes defensed, an interception, a touchdown, and nine forced fumbles through his six NFL seasons.

Again, there may be nothing here, but with discussion ramping up a bit surrounding the topic, it became worth presenting while disclosing that there may be nothing to this story.

Hugh "The King" McElhenny Was a 49ers Franchise Savior

The San Francisco 49ers were one of three teams from the old All-American Football Conference to join the NFL in 1950. The others were the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts. When the schedule was announced, some NFL owners balked about playing in San Francisco because, they claimed, the cost of traveling to the West Coast was too high and that the 49ers' ticket prices were too low. The 49ers charged $3.60 for seats between the 30- and 50-yard line, $2.40 for other reserved seats, $1.80 for general admission, and 50 cents for children under twelve at Kezar Stadium. So then, team owner Tony Morabito hiked the tariff to $3.75, $3, and $2, maintaining 50 cents for youngsters. Still, the 49er prices were the lowest in the league.

Can 49ers Trey Lance Be The First Rookie To Win A Super Bowl As Starting Quarterback?

As hard as it is to believe, no rookie has ever won the Super Bowl as a starting quarterback. You would think that after 55 years of Super Bowls, at least one rookie quarterback would have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy following his team's victory. But it has not happened. In fact, no rookie quarterback has even led his team to the game. None. In 55 years! A few have come close. Only three have led their teams as far as the conference championship game. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship Game. Mark Sanchez took the New York Jets to the AFC Championship



For The Record - 49ers CB Deommodore Lenoir

My apologies for the delay on my end for the two-week hiatus--life comes at you fast! I plan on finishing off the "For The Record" series with the remaining players along with a full evaluation of the 49ers' draft class with consideration to the recent training camp injuries (safety Tarvarius Moore, offensive lineman Justin Skule). While NFL Draft pundits and fans alike can give instant reactions to their team's player selections, it's easy to forget that the true value of the picks cannot be fully assessed until after a couple of seasons. Some players become instant starters (Nick Bosa), while others remain works in progress (Javon Kinlaw). Having said that, I want to pull out the receipts on what draft analysts were saying prior to the draft, along with their

With a new NFL season around the corner, coaching staffs are starting to get a feel for the teams they will be marching into battle with. The San Francisco 49ers have spent the last few months solidifying their roster from top to bottom. With many key players returning from injury, the 49ers have a strong group, with most of the starting positions locked up. There will be several depth positions available for grabs. After a disastrous 2020 season, the 49ers learned that quality depth at all position groups is critical. Here are a few players who find themselves on the roster bubble and will all need to stand out in training camp if they want to earn a roster spot. Josh Rosen, QB
