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.

The start of the 2020 NFL season has not been kind to the San Francisco 49ers. During the first half of the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals, tight end George Kittle suffered a sprained knee and went into the locker room early. He finished the game but had no catches in the second half. On September 16, 2020, the 49ers kept him out of practice and noted he would likely not practice on Thursday or Friday. Shortly after the Kittle news, the team announced that cornerback Richard Sherman would miss three

49ers vs Jets: Five Keys to Victory and Score Prediction

After last week's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers are looking to rebound and chalk up that first win of the season. It has been a difficult week as the team dealt with the loss, but also in the health department as the injury bug has reared its ugly head early and often. The offense was hampered by the losses of Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and Richie James Jr. at receiver, Ben Garland and Weston Richburg at center, and perhaps most importantly, George Kittle at tight end. Kittle, Samuel, Richburg and James will not play on Sunday, but there was some good news as Aiyuk and Garland are set to make their season debuts. Free agent receiver Mohamed Sanu was signed this week to shore up the receiver corps. While the loss of Kittle is never good,

With multiple starters out tomorrow versus the Jets, there's no surprise that the 49ers' depth will be tested. Here are 3 players who will step up to propel the 49ers to their first win of the season. 1. Ross Dwelley Ross Dwelley did well filling in for George Kittle when the latter missed a few games in 2019, including 2 touchdowns against the Cardinals. Jordan Reed will undoubtedly be more involved, but I'd expect Ross Dwelley to be more engaged in both the run and pass game. Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman should be featured all game long, setting up easy play action passes to Dwelley. Prediction: 4 catches for 45 yards, 1 TD 2. Emmanuel Moseley Expect Emmanuel Moseley to rebound from Week 1's
