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."

Mohamed Sanu Is Not the Answer for the 49ers, but He Is Part of the Sanu-tion

By Nick Newman

Rejoice! The 49ers have finally signed a veteran receiver, who actually has been a consistent pass-catching threat throughout his career. None of the other receivers the team has recently signed - Tavon Austin, J.J. Nelson, and Kevin White - has the ability to fill that Emmanuel Sanders role. Mohamed Sanu, on the other hand, does. Let me start off by explaining the title of this article. By no means is this a jab at Sanu. What I am trying to say is that he won't come in and single-handedly cure the team's receiver woes. Simply put, he is just not on the level as some of the league's other receivers who could come in and completely change the complexion of the passing game. The types of receivers like Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas, DaVante Adams, etc. are few and far

The 49ers will be without injured tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this afternoon but are hopeful he'll be ready to play in time for next week's game against the New York Giants, according to reports from Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Both reporters weighed in on Kittle's status earlier this morning while also shedding some light on the nature of his injury, which occurred during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Schefter wrote earlier this morning that Kittle has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee "that would sideline most players for a few weeks" but is showing

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and provided some good news regarding George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end will return to practice after sustaining an MCL sprain during Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and missing this past weekend's matchup against the New York Jets. He is, however, expected to be limited. Kittle's status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants will be dependent on how he looks during practices this week. Shanahan also noted that running back Tevin Coleman's knee sprain is more severe than Raheem Mostert's knee injury. While Mostert may miss this weekend's game, he is not expected to miss an extended period. Shanahan says Coleman could miss four weeks, though, and that the
