Don’t count the 49ers out of the Nnamdi sweepstakes

Jul 27, 2011 at 8:24 PM--


There has not been much news on the Nnamdi Asomugha front since earlier this morning when Michael Lombardi of NFL Network reported that the competition for the free agent cornerback's services were between the New York Jets and the San Francisco 49ers.

More recently, ESPN's John Clayton says, "don't count the 49ers out of the Nnamdi sweepstakes" on his Twitter account (@ClaytonESPN).

Earlier today, Lombardi said, "they are in it strong." "I am sure Houston is involved as well in Asomugha, but it sounds like SF and NY are in the lead right now."

The Dallas Cowboys have also shown interest in Asomugha.

Asomugha is the biggest name in free agency this year. Reports throughout the day have said that while San Francisco may be able to offer Asomugha more money and the ability to stay in familiar territory, the New York Jets offer him a chance at a championship.

Earlier today, it was reported that the 49ers have informed cornerback Nate Clements that he would be released. This could be seen as a move to make room for Asomugha's salary.

Beat writer says 49ers should be wary of Colts in Trent Williams sweepstakes

The San Francisco 49ers still have exclusive negotiating rights with offensive tackle Trent Williams' representatives. That will change on March 15, when negotiations with other teams can begin. With no new reports of any negotiating progress with San Francisco, it sounds like Williams remains on course for the open market. The 49ers reportedly had "extensive" contract talks with Williams' representatives before the team's regular-season finale. They hoped to avoid a situation in which the eight-time Pro Bowler even approaches free agency. Obviously, that did not happen, and here we are. Williams and San Francisco have a mutual desire to stay together. Still, there



Kyle Juszczyk explains why offseason rumors don't affect Jimmy Garoppolo

Each offseason, Jimmy Garoppolo has to deal with those questioning whether he is the right quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. In 2020, after a Super Bowl appearance, rumors were circulating about his former mentor in New England, Tom Brady, possibly replacing him. This offseason, it has been everyone from Matthew Stafford to Deshaun Watson. Do chatter and constant doubt in Garoppolo's ability bother the quarterback? Not as much as one might believe, it seems. Soon-to-be free agent, 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, joined The Pat McAfee Show on Monday and shared why the constant rumors don't weigh on Garoppolo. It's because he doesn't listen to never-ending social media dialogue. In fact, he doesn't see much of it. "I think it would be



Rapoport: Don't expect a resolution to the Deshaun Watson saga anytime soon

ESPN reported that quarterback Deshaun Watson met with the Houston Texans last week. Before that, he had been ignoring all attempts by the team to contact him. The Texans have a new head coach and general manager in David Culley and Nick Caserio, respectively, who want Watson to be a part of the team's future. Watson sat down with Culley as a sign of respect. However, the quarterback reportedly reiterated that he has no intention of playing another snap for the Texans. It has nothing to do with the new head coach or general manager. Watson's frustrations with the organization go higher than that — with ownership. It doesn't sound like the standoff will see a resolution anytime soon. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, speaking with NFL Now host Andrew



Kyle Juszczyk talks free agency, says 49ers teammates are reaching out

Kyle Juszczyk is just a couple of weeks away from hitting free agency, and from the discussion on Monday's The Pat McAfee Show, it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers fullback believes he will get to test the market. This is the second time Juszczyk will be a free agent. He signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers in 2017 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. "Honestly, there really is so much that goes into it," Juszczyk told Pat McAfee. "Money, without a doubt, is one of the biggest things. I'm not going to be the guy that sits here and tells you that no, money doesn't matter because this is life, man. It's a business. Money is probably the No. 1 factor, but it's not the only factor. There's a lot. "Things like, can this
