49ers drop out of the Nnamdi Asomugha race

Jul 29, 2011 at 7:46 AM--


Michael Lombardi of NFL Network is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are no longer in the race for Nnamdi Asomugha. Asomugha's choices are down to the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Jets.

Lombardi says that people in the 49ers organization are telling people around the league that they are no longer in this deal.

Johnathan Josesph, the free agent cornerback and former Bengal who was the 49ers' backup plan, signed with the Texans yesterday.

After releasing cornerback Nate Clements to free up salary cap room, this leaves San Francisco in a bad situation.

Rapoport explains 49ers' thinking when it comes to the No. 3 pick, and why Justin Fields may be out

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Sunday night that the San Francisco 49ers' decision regarding the No. 3 overall pick had come down to Mac Jones of Alabama versus Trey Lance of North Dakota State. If accurate, that means Justin Fields of Ohio State is likely out of the picture in the minds of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. There was also a report from Todd McShay of ESPN that sources around the league believe that Shanahan is leaning toward Jones, while the 49ers' personnel department is pushing for Lance. That matches up with what

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of



Why didn't the 49ers draft a WR, TE, or DE? It just worked out that way

An ideal situation for any NFL team would be to come out of the NFL Draft having selected the best players on its board at their draft spots that also happened to be at positions of need, but things usually don't fall into place that easily.
