49ers willing to pay for Goldson, McDonald, but not Spikes, Franklin or Lawson

Jul 26, 2011 at 9:36 PM--


Fresh from the Twitterverse. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee are reporting that the bidding for safety Dashon Goldson is between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.

Maiocco even goes on to say, "49ers are fully prepared to pay to keep S Dashon Goldson. They'll go higher to sign him than any of their defensive free agents."

Apparently Goldson is more important to the team than linebacker Takeo Spikes, who agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers today.

Maiocco also states that the team is prepared to lose nose-tackle Aubrayo Franklin and linebacker Manny Lawson.

The team also agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal with quarterback Alex Smith.

On the Aubrayo Franklin front, Barrows tweets, "Redskins reportedly agree to terms on DT Barry Cofield. They were expected to be Aubrayo Franklin's most ardent suitor."

Hence, the focus was on the possibility that the 49ers might look to the first round of the draft to bolster the quarterback position. Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed confidence that his defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, would do well in any head-coaching job interview. Saleh interviewed with the Detroit Lions on Thursday, a job for which many consider him to be the favorite. One NFL insider suggests that particular interview may not have gone as well as Shanahan might expect or Saleh might have hoped. "Saleh did not do very well in the Detroit interview, I was told. And is not a shoo-in to get the job," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said during a radio interview with SportsTalk 790's Adam Clanton and Adam Wexler (via

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah released his first mock draft and has quarterbacks going back-to-back with the first two overall picks, sending Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets. Jeremiah has two other quarterbacks coming off the board before the San Francisco 49ers select at No. 12. They are Trey Lance to the Atlanta Falcons at No. 4 and Justin Fields to the Carolina Panthers at No. 8. So, where does that leave the 49ers? Selecting a tight end, of course. No controversy there, right? With all of the team's roster needs and nearly 40 players scheduled to become free agents, tight end isn't
