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.

Justin Wong just released his latest Mock Draft Roundup.

Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,

Jason Verrett on re-signing with 49ers: 'My heart was always with San Fran'

By David Bonilla

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what
