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.

49ers' injury list is lengthy; team could be down nine starters vs. Giants

The 2020 season has not started as the San Francisco 49ers hoped. It was supposed to be a "Legendary Revenge Tour" with the defending NFC champions making amends for February's Super Bowl defeat, climbing back to the top, and walking away with a championship. Maybe that still happens. But the 49ers will need to get back some of the players from their growing injury list. The defensive line, which is vital to the defense's success, has already taken a significant hit with the losses of two former first-round picks in Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both saw their seasons end during Week 2 after suffering torn ACLs. Here is an updated list of the 49ers' current injury

Mohamed Sanu Is Not the Answer for the 49ers, but He Is Part of the Sanu-tion

Rejoice! The 49ers have finally signed a veteran receiver, who actually has been a consistent pass-catching threat throughout his career. None of the other receivers the team has recently signed - Tavon Austin, J.J. Nelson, and Kevin White - has the ability to fill that Emmanuel Sanders role. Mohamed Sanu, on the other hand, does. Let me start off by explaining the title of this article. By no means is this a jab at Sanu. What I am trying to say is that he won't come in and single-handedly cure the team's receiver woes. Simply put, he is just not on the level as some of the league's other receivers who could come in and completely change the complexion of the passing game. The types of receivers like Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas, DaVante Adams, etc. are few and far

The Sky Is Not Falling, 49ers Fans

I have recently discovered one of my new favorite shows on Hulu during this COVID-19 quarantine. It's called Letterkenny, and it's a half-hour comedy out of Canada that brings jokes, wit, and one-liners at a pace that is almost overwhelming at times. There is a LOT of Canadian slang (yes that's a real thing, and most of it comes from hockey), and one of the phrases that main character Wayne, the town's champion fighter and tough guy, says often when confronted by nonsense from somebody is "You better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk to ya." 49er fans, you better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk ya! The 49ers' performance against the Cardinals in Week 1 was less than stellar. The offense looked disjointed with its top two receivers, Deebo
