Team makes inquiry about TE Jon Williams

Apr 28, 2006 at 7:16 AM--


Mike Zhe, of the Portsmouth Herald, reports the San Francisco 49ers made a recent inquiry into New Hampshire TE Jon Williams. Scouts love his height (6-foot-3), hands and speed (4.81 seconds in the 40-yard dash). The concerns are his blocking ability, he wasn't asked to do much of that in New Hampshire's multiple-formation scheme, and the level of competition he faced in college. He has bulked up from 230 to 247 pounds since the end of the season. Those who know him expect to see him in an NFL camp this summer, if not as a draftee then as a free agent signing in the days that follow.

That means that Williams and the 49ers must agree on a new contract extension before he hits free agency in 2021, or agree to part ways. As part of his reworked contract with the 49ers, OT Trent Williams cannot be franchise tagged after this season, per source. The eventual goal for both sides remains a long-term deal for the 7-time Pro Bowler.— Field Yates (@FieldYates)

The San Francisco 49ers found themselves in what they perceived as a tough situation last season. The team lost both starting offensive tackles to injuries. Naturally, knowing that the roster was capable of something special, general manager John Lynch started to look into his options. Disgruntled Washington tackle Trent Williams was one of those options. "We had made a call about it in the last season when Joe (Staley) and (Mike) McGlinchey were hurt, thinking, wow, this could be an option," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers' virtual State of the Franchise event this week. "When those guys come back, maybe we play him at guard." The trade, obviously, didn't happen during the season. It did happen, however, during the third day of this year's

The decision to retire was a difficult one for Joe Staley. The San Francisco 49ers longtime offensive tackle didn't want to leave his team in a bind. He played his entire 13-year career with the Niners, the team that made him the No. 28 overall pick in 2007. Staley informed the 49ers of his decision during the week leading to the draft. That led general manager John Lynch to consider the team's options seriously. One of those options was Washington's disgruntled offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Of course, the 49ers didn't want Washington to know about Staley's intentions. "[Staley] allowed us to go into the draft with people not knowing [of his plan to retire]," 49ers CEO Jed York said this week during the team's virtual State of the Franchise
