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.

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.



Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future.

Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,

When Jimmy Garappolo arrived in San Francisco in a trade from the New England Patriots in 2017, he was a young, athletic, and skilled quarterback. However, a couple of season-ending injuries later, his value has plummeted. The perception of the quarterback is that of an older, immobile, and inaccurate passer who often makes questionable decisions. Garoppolo's injury-riddled stint with the Niners has caused the entire team to suffer due to below-average backup play leading to mostly disappointing results. After head coach Kyle Shanahan's third losing season in four years, he has set his mind on using the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select a durable franchise quarterback who can execute his offensive playbook effectively and has the athletic skill set to lead a
