49ers sign cornerback Walt Harris

Mar 15, 2006 at 12:54 PM--


49ers.com announced Wednesday that the team has signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Walt Harris. No terms of the contract have been disclosed.

At 5'11" and 190 lbs, Harris has 10 years of NFL experience. He spent his first six years with the Chicago Bears, two with the Indianapolis Colts and his last two seasons with the Washington Redskins. He was originally drafted by Chicago in the first round of the 1996 NFL draft out of Mississippi State.

Harris overcame knee surgery in the 2004 offseason to play in 16 games with two starts, recording 21 tackles (12 solo), two interceptions and one forced fumble. He has played in at least 12 games during each of his 10 seasons and has 20 career interceptions.

Interest in TE Aaron Shea

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the San Francisco 49ers have expressed an interest in free agent Aaron Shea. The 6'3" 248 lb tight end has spent the last 6 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He has played in 65 games, pulled in 97 catches for 851 yards and 7 touchdowns during his career.

Safety Chris Hope signs with Titans

The 49ers lost out on free agent safety Chris Hope. According to ESPN, the former Pittsburgh Steeler has signed with the Tennessee Titans.

Peterson to visit Seahawks

The Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Seattle Seahawks have scheduled a visit with free agent linebacker Julian Peterson. Peterson has not drawn as much free agency interest as previously anticipated. However, if only two or three teams become interested, it could increase his value and make it tougher for the 49ers to re-sign the linebacker. Nolan has stated that he would not be against Peterson's return to the team if he could be signed for the right price.

49ers meet with Lal Heneghan again

The Press Democrat also reports that the 49ers have once again met with former Cleveland Browns executive Lal Heneghan. Heneghan has previously interviewed with the team for the open high-level front-office position.

Seattle-Tacoma radio station KIRO-FM obtained and aired audio from the 911 call placed by Ashley Moss, the wife of former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, and the details emerging from it are shocking. Sherman was arrested on Wednesday morning for "burglary domestic violence." Although, the "domestic violence" designation has to do with the relationship between Sherman and the owners of the residence, who are his in-laws, per Redmond police chief Darrell Lowe. Sherman had allegedly crashed his vehicle about an hour before arriving at the residence. There is a suspicion of DUI, which is seemingly confirmed by the audio of the call. The cornerback "physically resisted" police, forcing the authorities to deploy a K9 dog. Sherman sustained a minor

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

'Dominant in every facet': 49ers' Trent Williams tops ESPN's ranking of offensive tackles

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler continues to look at position groups across the NFL and rank the best players within each. His latest effort was ranking the league's top offensive tackles. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." Last year, the San Francisco 49ers acquired Trent Williams from the Washington Football Team to
