League interested in Cutler may benefit 49ers

Feb 17, 2006 at 7:35 AM--


According to Yahoo! Sports, a number of teams are interested in Vanderbilt quarterback Jay Cutler. One of these teams may be the Miami Dolphins (No. 16). Other teams that may be interested in picking up a quarterback in the first round include the New Orleans Saints (No. 2), Tennessee Titans (No. 3), New York Jets (No. 4), Oakland Raiders (No. 6 or 7 pending a coin flip on Friday, February 24th), Detroit Lions (No. 9) and Arizona Cardinals (No. 10).

How is this San Francisco 49ers (who will draft no. 6 or 7 pending a coin flip on Friday, February 24th) news? Many insiders believe that the key will be the 49ers and their pick since the team will be looking to trade down with a team coveting Cutler. Should the team end up with the 6th pick, they will have more options available to them since teams will likely want to jump ahead of Oakland and other teams looking to draft Cutler.

According to Sportsline.com, the 49ers have interviewed 15 people for the team's open president position. While Seattle's Mike Reinfeldt was a leading candidate, he turned down the 49ers offer that reportedly would have paid him twice his salary. Others who have interviewed are Ray Anderson, the executive vice president of the Falcons; Bob Wallace, executive vice president of the Rams; and Bob Ferguson, former general manager of the Seahawks.

The team is looking for an individual with at least 20 years of experience in the league. It is also said that Nolan, who is pushing for the addition, has disagreed with director of football operations Paraag Marathe.

Multiple coaching candidates plan to run Kyle Shanahan's scheme; Dolphins interested in 49ers' Mike McDaniel

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of

"As for the quarterback position, Kyle and I both have spoken, and spoken fairly directly as to the fact that we expect Jimmy to be our quarterback," Lynch said on Monday. "That's consistently met with other stories, but
