Battle and Pashos drawing interest; Ware may visit 49ers

Mar 5, 2010 at 7:04 AM--


According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, wide receiver Arnaz Battle is drawing some interest during free agency. He has visits scheduled this weekend with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks. Barrows states, "The Seahawks also are short a receiver after Nate Burleson signed with the Lions. As for the Steelers, Battle always has drawn comparisons with Hines Ward."

According to Ravens Insider, tackle Tony Pashos is on his way to visit the Redskins. This is bad news for the 49ers as they have expressed interest in resigning Pashos.

There were early rumors last night that Arizona Cardinals safety Matt Ware would be visiting an NFC West team or teams, but it was unknown which teams it would be. Barrows' guess is that it will be Seattle and San Francisco.

Ware, in the league for six years, started one game last season while playing in 11. He had 24 tackles and one interception. Not familiar with Ware? Here is a clip of Ware taking on 49ers running back Frank Gore.

The San Francisco 49ers invested a lot to acquire quarterback Trey Lance. The team is unlikely to admit any wrongdoing there. Not yet, at least. That's not to say that Lance can't develop into a competent starter for the Bay Area squad. The team obviously believes that to be possible, having decided he was the Week 1 starter early last offseason. Circumstances have changed, though. Brock Purdy has taken the NFL by storm, surprising even those who drafted him with the No. 262 overall pick. Lance went down in Week 2, elevating Jimmy Garoppolo into the starting role. That lasted until Week 13 when Garoppolo went down with a broken foot. Enter Brock Purdy and the birth of a continuously accelerating hype train. Some expected the rookie

The San Francisco 49ers know Sunday might be the toughest test of the season. The team will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field. A win means returning to the Super Bowl for the second time in four years. "I expect it to be a battle all the way through," linebacker Fred Warner told reporters on Wednesday. "Both the Cowboys and Eagles are physical and talented teams who are really fast and have a lot of talent. Just like it was a battle this past week (against Dallas), I'm expecting that, if not more, this week, them being in their home stadium, home crowd behind them. They're going to be juiced up, ready to go." The 49ers finished the season with the top-ranked defense. The Eagles defense wasn't far behind. San

No matter who you root for, you can imagine your team finding a way to win, a way to keep playing football, and filling your February with excitement and joy.
