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.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan usually hands out game balls after a victory. However, he didn't do so after his San Francisco 49ers trounced the NFC West-rival Los Angeles Rams 31-10. The coach explained why after the game. "We didn't give any game balls out," Shanahan told reporters. "I would have given one to everybody, if we did, but we need to start to expect some more games like that. We've got to be sure that -- we can be better or worse next week, and we've got to make sure we're better." San Francisco improves to 4-5 and prevents falling back into last place in the NFC West. That dishonor belongs to the Seattle Seahawks, who are 3-6. Shanahan and the Niners have won five straight against the Rams, and earned their first home victory in 393 days. That last home

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because

The Washington Football Team faced some crushing news earlier this week after further tests confirmed that defensive end Chase Young tore his ACL in Washington's win over Tampa Bay last weekend. Young, who was selected No. 2 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, has had a relatively quiet sophomore season, with just 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in nine games this year, after an impressive rookie season, where he accumulated 7.5 sacks to go along with four forced fumbles en route to winning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. With the ACL tear confirmed, Young is expected to miss the rest of the 2021 NFL season and will rehab for 2022, where the Washington Football Team will look to improve after a disappointing 3-6 start in 2021.
