49ers, Bryant agree in principle to deal

Mar 13, 2006 at 7:58 AM--


According to Scout.com, the San Francisco 49ers have agreed in principle on a deal with free agent wide receiver Antonio Bryant. Everything could be set pending a medical exam.

Bryant visited with the San Francisco 49ers yesterday. The Sacramento Bee states that Bryant left optimistic that the two sides would agree to a deal. Something could be announced as early as this morning.

"It's looking up, and everything seems to be heading in the right direction," said Bryant.

Bryant met with coach Mike Nolan, offensive coordinator Norv Turner and receivers coach Jerry Sullivan before leaving to get an MRI. There have been many questions about Bryant's attitude and maturity. Bryant said that he tried to assure 49ers coaches the attitude issues were behind him.

"I want to show them that I can set an example for the other receivers if I do come here," he said.

Bryant spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns and was drafted in 2002 by the Dallas Cowboys. Known throughout his career as a troubled player, Nolan and the team may be willing to take a risk on him. Statistically, last season was his best year when he amassed 1009 yards receiving on 69 catches with 4 touchdowns.

Givens being pursued heavily by other teams

Wide receiver David Givens' agent, Bradley Blank, said the 49ers did ask about Givens at the beginning of free agency but have not been in contact since. Givens visited the Houston Texans on Sunday. He plans to interview with San Diego and Tennessee.

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his starting debut on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He played well, but as expected, it was a bit of a rollercoaster.

Last week, when Lance played the second half against the Seahawks, head coach Kyle Shanahan said there was some 'good' and some 'bad'. After his first start, Lance said the same thing about his performance on Sunday. Some good, some bad. A rollercoaster. The 49ers lost the game by a score of 17-10. The team, as a whole, had an up and down game. Here are my 14 rollercoaster observations from Sunday's game: I remember hearing how Shanahan was excitedly

Watching Nick Bosa test his arm and wrist on the sideline had to be a scary moment for San Francisco 49ers fans. Bosa missed most of last season after suffering a torn ACL. The last thing anyone wants to see is the talented pass rusher miss more time this season. San Francisco is 2-3 and hopes to rebound after the bye week from its three consecutive losses. The team needs Bosa down the stretch if it hopes to turn things around. The third-year defender briefly left the game after sacking Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon, nearly 24 hours after his team suffered its third consecutive loss of the season. There was a lot of bad from the trip to State Farm Stadium to play the Arizona Cardinals. However, there was also some good. The game was rookie Trey Lance's first NFL start. The 21-year-old quarterback had his ups and downs, but it was an opportunity for growth. Lance was playing because the 49ers' regular starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, is dealing with a calf injury. "I was proud of him," Shanahan said of Lance via a conference call. "I thought he went into a tough environment versus a real good team. I thought he did a lot of real good things.
