Broncos still tempted by Vernon Davis

Apr 17, 2006 at 7:20 AM--


Dave Krieger of the Rocky Mountain News reports that the Denver Broncos are not doing much to disguise their fondness for Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound tight end expected to be among the first six picks of the NFL Draft. If the Broncos trade up in the draft, it will be to get Davis. The Broncos understand they would have to trade up to at least the fifth pick because the San Francisco 49ers are widely expected to take Davis at No. 6, if he gets that far.

Team's remaining free agents

The 49ers have eight remaining free agents; one exclusive rights free agent, one restricted, five unrestricted and three that were cut. Free safety Mike Adams heads the list of remaining free agents.

Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so since parting ways with the 49ers in

When it comes to talking about the 49ers' group of wide receivers, the words of Yogi Berra seem to apply: "It's like deja vu all over again." Last year at about this time, the 49ers took a torpedo to their wide receiver plans when they lost both big-bodied rookie Jalen Hurd and the scrappy Trent Taylor to pre-season injuries. They had another rookie wideout, Deebo Samuel, who would later prove to be a gem for the team's offense, but at the time things were looking less than hopeful for the 49ers' chances of making significant strides toward a playoff appearance. In an effort to boost the receiver room last season, the 49ers brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos, and it had a magical effect on the other wideouts for the rest of the
