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."

Peter King feels 49ers should keep Jimmy Garoppolo, but first-rounder in trade not unthinkable

The San Francisco 49ers are in the middle of a playoff run, their second in three seasons. They hope to extend their season beyond Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Still, even now, it's difficult not to wonder about the Niners' looming offseason quarterback decision. For many, there is no choice. The 49ers will have to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, transitioning to the team's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. Obviously, San Francisco would like to get something in return for Garoppolo, if that happens. Of course, Peter King of NBC Sports isn't so sure parting with Garoppolo is the best option. "I've had a two-fold opinion about Garoppolo," King told 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto on Tuesday. "Number



49ers-Packers: Jimmy Garoppolo 'feeling good' he'll play but will 'feel it out' throughout the week

Jimmy Garoppolo hopes to be on the field when his San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The quarterback isn't just dealing with the torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb suffered in Week 16. He sustained a right shoulder sprain in Sunday's Wild Card win against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will be limited in Tuesday's practice. Before heading out to the practice field, the quarterback spoke with reporters and was asked how confident he would play on Saturday. "We'll feel it out throughout the week," Garoppolo responded. "But yeah,



49ers-Rams: Trent Williams believes he will play but won't practice on Wednesday

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Wednesday's practice and said that tackle Trent Williams and running back Elijah Mitchell will not participate. This week, the 49ers are holding three full practices as they prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Williams is dealing with the ankle injury suffered on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Mitchell has been bothered by a knee injury. Shanahan added that Williams is again determined to play, and the coach believes that is a possibility. "I haven't seen Trent yet today," Shanahan said. "I'll see him here in a little bit when we go out to the field, but Trent's the same as he was that game (Week 18 vs. Rams). In Trent's mind, there's no

San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams suffered an ankle injury during this past weekend's playoff win over the Green Bay Packers. However, he is hopeful of playing in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams. Williams was spotted when the 49ers stepped onto the practice field on Friday. While the team will hold a walk-through on Saturday, Friday's session is the last full practice of the week. Williams did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. However, it is unknown how much Williams will do on Friday—if anything. Reporters are only allowed to watch practice until team drills begin, and the offensive lineman is not taking part in warmups, the first portion of practice. "He's walking very slowly," noted Matt Maiocco of
