Rumor Mill: 49ers interested in Broncos wide receiver Ashley Lelie?

Feb 9, 2006 at 7:54 PM--


It is important to note that the following is just a rumor and no fact has been presented regarding this story.

Rumors are flying around about the San Francisco 49ers' interest in trading for Denver Broncos wide receiver Ashley Lelie. The rumors were started by this thread at Broncos fan site OrangeMane.com and were later posted on Thursday afternoon within the 49erswebzone.com forums.

OrangeMane.com states that according to an Orange Mane source, two teams may be interested in the wide receiver. Those teams are the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons. It is also stated that the Broncos are looking for a first day pick for Lelie.

"We're told that Lelie has family in California, and would be interested in moving to the warmer climate." - Taco John of OrangeMane.com

The Denver Broncos are one of two AFC West teams that are seriously looking to acquire former 49ers and Eagles wide receiver, Terrell Owens. Such an acquisition may make other receivers on their roster expendable.

Most 49ers fans would not want to give anything higher than a 3rd round pick for Lelie while Broncos fans feel that he is worth at least a 2nd round pick.

This should be taken for what it is: a rumor. The reliability of OrangeMane.com is unknown and this rumor has not yet appeared on the main site itself, but simply within the forum. It should also be noted that OrangeMane.com is a fan site and not affiliated with the NFL in any way.

49ers receiver feels Brandon Aiyuk is on the cusp of being 'unguardable'

The San Francisco 49ers may have a punishing duo of starting wide receivers heading into 2021 thanks to a couple of draft picks over the past two years that appear ready to pay off. The team selected Deebo Samuel in the second round in 2019 and then Brandon Aiyuk in the first round a year later. Both could be gearing up for breakout NFL campaigns. Aiyuk hauled in 60 receptions for 748 yards and five receiving touchdowns as a rookie. He also carried the football six times for 77 yards and two more scores. His receiving yards total ranks third all-time in franchise history for a rookie while his receptions rank second all-time, and his receiving touchdowns tie for second among first-year players. Only Deebo Samuel and Jerry Rice had more receiving yards as 49ers

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the media following Monday's practice, which marked the fifth of the team's training camp sessions. During the session, he was asked about the health of Jalen Hurd and his involvement with team practices, as Hurd has yet to play in an NFL game after being drafted in the third round of the 2019 Draft. "He's going out there doing routes on air and trying to get all that stuff in, just with the injuries he's been through. With his back stuff, we're trying to ease him in and we do have a plan to try to get him into team drills coming up here soon. Hopefully, he'll stay on track and be able to do that." Hurd first injured his back during joint practices with the Broncos during his rookie season, causing him to miss his entire

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
