San Francisco not on Eric Moulds’ wish list

Mar 28, 2006 at 10:35 AM--


Updating yesterday's report that the 49ers were one of many teams interested in Eric Moulds, it appears that San Francisco may be an unlikely landing spot for the disgruntled Bills wide receiver.

Numerous sources (including the Philadelphia Daily News, Buffalo News and The News Journal), indicate that Philadelphia and Houston are at the top of Moulds’ wish list. Both the Eagles and the Texans have shown interest in the receiver.

"Every time I mention Philadelphia, Eric's ears perk up," said Greg Johnson, who represents the 32-year-old Bills wide receiver along with his partner, Harry Henderson. "He wants to go to Philadelphia. He really feels he could help them. He loves the idea of being an Eagle and playing with Donovan [McNabb]."

Johnson said Moulds has spoken recently with McNabb. The two have been friends for 5 or 6 years.

Moulds interest in the Eagles appears to be stronger than the Eagles interest in Moulds. While the Eagles have expressed interest in Moulds, they have no desire to overpay to acquire his services.

In fact, while San Francisco has shown interest in him, the 49ers are not on the top 5 of Moulds’ wish list. The other teams on that wish list are the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. New England may be unlikely since they are a division rival. However, it is obvious that Moulds has a desire to go to a winning team.

While Moulds may be hoping to play in Philadelphia, the Houston Texans may be the team most willing to trade for Moulds. The Texans may not be a winning team (2-14 record in 2005), but Houston is close to Moulds' native Mississippi, which would allow his family to see him play more often.

Moulds is scheduled to make $7.1 million next season. But because of bonuses factored in over the length of his contract, he is to count about $10.85 million against the Bills’ salary cap. He is looking for a contract similar to the one Isaac Bruce signed 2 weeks ago with the St. Louis Rams.

Moulds was ranked #9 in SI.com's 2005 Top 10 Receivers list.

Time for Trey? Jimmy Garoppolo not on the field for 49ers' Friday practice

All eyes are on the status of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The team is holding its final practice of the week, and it's the last chance for Garoppolo to see if he can go for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. If not, that would likely mean rookie Trey Lance is getting his first NFL start. "I think today is critical," general manager John Lynch said this morning. "If it's not today, then we go with Trey." After missing Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, multiple reports state that Garoppolo was not on the field as today's practice got underway. That likely means we'll see Lance start in his place on Sunday. Of course,



Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been
