John Lynch says 49ers would like to re-sign CB Emmanuel Moseley

The San Francisco 49ers seem intent on trying to keep cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, who is due to hit free agency once the 2023 league year gets underway on March 15.

Moseley is coming off a shortened season due to a torn ACL, which he sustained in the 49ers' 37-15 win over the Carolina Panthers on October 9. Moseley has established himself as one of the team's top cornerbacks since coming aboard as an undrafted rookie in 2018, and the 49ers would like their relationship with him to continue.

"He's a guy we'd have interest in bringing back because of the way he plays, but also what he stands for," 49ers general manager John Lynch said at the team's year-end press conference Wednesday. "He's one of us and we'd sure like to have him back."

Moseley's health status doesn't seem to be an issue at the moment as he's been making encouraging progress with his rehab. Lynch said Moseley is currently working out at team facilities in Santa Clara after spending time rehabbing his injury in Los Angeles.

"E-man's doing really well," Lynch said. "He's out on the field as we speak, working out here and rehabbing, doing really well. Most of the time, unless somebody's hit a complication, you typically hear (they're) doing really well, a little bit ahead of schedule, because these guys are elite athletes. And if you know Mose at all, his commitment to the process is going to be elite, and that's what he's done. He's (been) down in L.A. rehabbing for a long time. We've had him back for the last couple of weeks."

Moseley underwent surgery for his torn ACL on October 27. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on October 10 that he hoped to see Moseley in a 49ers uniform in 2023.

"It's a real sad, unfortunate thing that happened to him," Shanahan said, per NBC Sports Bay Area. "He was playing his ass off, too. He will be very missed this year. And I really, really hope to have him back next year."

Moseley is coming off a two-year, $10.1 million deal he signed with the 49ers in 2021. Moseley started all 11 games he played in for the 49ers in 2021 and has a total of 33 starts in 45 career games with 162 tackles and four interceptions. Spotrac.com has estimated Moseley's next contract at $16.6 million per year, but it remains to be seen if it will require that much for him to be back with the 49ers.

Sauce Gardner says Brandon Aiyuk is underutilized by 49ers

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has the respect of Sauce Gardner. The New York Jets' All-Pro cornerback, responding to a take by FS1 analyst Emmanuel Acho, praised Aiyuk, suggesting the veteran player is one of the best receivers in the game. Acho criticized Aiyuk following complaints from the receiver's inner circle about his limited opportunities during the postseason, during which Aiyuk managed just nine receptions across three playoff games. While Acho respects Aiyuk, he argued that the primary focus of the 49ers' offense is running back Christian McCaffrey, which may limit opportunities for other playmakers. He pointed out that complaints about

Jimmy Garoppolo's post-San Francisco 49ers tenure with the Las Vegas Raiders did not last long. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the quarterback has been suspended for two games due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

49ers insider weighs in on Deebo Samuel vs. Brandon Aiyuk debate

Brock Purdy has just completed his second NFL season, which means he's under contract with the San Francisco 49ers for two more years. The team is allowed to begin negotiating a contract extension after the 2024 season. With a salary cap hit of around $1 million next season, Purdy's contract provides the 49ers with some flexibility, allowing them to allocate funds elsewhere on the roster. However, the 49ers are undoubtedly looking ahead, aware that Purdy will eventually demand a larger share of the team's cap space. With the next significant contract anticipated for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, a debate has arisen regarding the long-term likelihood of retaining both Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. With some big financial decisions looming, it might only be feasible to
