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.

Deebo Samuel hasn't always gotten much respect from Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, so it's not surprising he doesn't seem too eager to get to know Donald in person at some point. Donald was asked how to stop Samuel after a loss to the 49ers in 2020, to which he replied, "Who? Who's that?" Samuel responded on the field last season with 17 catches for 199 receiving yards and a touchdown in two wins over the Rams, then took a shot back at Donald via social media after the second of those two wins. With the Rams on the schedule this weekend, Samuel was asked by reporters after practice

Wide receiver Antonio Brown cleared waivers on Friday after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday. That officially makes him a free agent. However, teams may be hesitant to sign him given how things ended with his former team. During the third quarter of the Buccaneers' Week 17 contest against the New York Jets, Brown shockingly took off his helmet, jersey, and pads, and then exited MetLife Stadium. "He is no longer a Buc," head coach Bruce Arians said after the game. On Friday morning, before Brown cleared waivers, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch took part in his weekly KNBR interview. Surprisingly, he was asked if his team might be interested in Brown given his 49ers might be headed to the playoffs with a win over
