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.

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall
