Saints asking price may be too high for 49ers

Apr 29, 2006 at 12:24 AM--


It was reported last night that the San Francisco 49ers are trying to trade up to the No. 2 spot to grab USC running back Reggie Bush. However, Dave Hutchinson, of the Star-Ledger, reports that the New Orleans Saints' asking price may be too high for the 49ers.

It is being reported that the Saints are asking for the 49ers' No. 6 pick, their No. 22 pick and next season's first-round pick.

With too many needs on the team, the 49ers will likely pull themselves out of the bidding if this is what they would have to give up. Rumor has it that the 49ers have offered the No. 6 pick, their 3rd round pick, and their 2nd round pick next year and are unwilling to give up their No. 22 pick or the 1st rounder next year.

This all started last night when the Houston Texans announced that they have agreed to terms with North Carolina State defensive lineman Mario Williams and will draft him instead of Bush.

According to Bush's agent, the Saints have already said that they will select Bush with the second pick in the draft.

ESPNews has also reported that the 49ers are calling around in an attempt to move up, guaranteeing themselves to be in position to draft Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk or Maryland tight end Vernon Davis should a deal with the Saints fall through.

Kyle Shanahan admitted that he was frustrated by missing out on potentially pursuing Matthew Stafford in March. Instead, the Detroit Lions shipped the veteran quarterback to a division rival. The speed at which the trade went down shocked Shanahan, who thought he would have more time to get his San Francisco 49ers in the talks. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared during a recent podcast interview with Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay and NFL Network's Peter Schrager. "Someone who had knowledge of the situation, I remember us talking to (agent Tom) Condon, just everyone, to find out when it was happening. I remember Saturday, I was so stressed



Jim Trotter breaks down why 49ers are high on DeMeco Ryans

The San Francisco 49ers promoted DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator after Robert Saleh left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. Ryans was asked in June what fans can expect to see from his defense this season. Was he planning to follow the same blueprint that Saleh laid out, or were some bigger changes on the horizon? "Our defense will be a fast, attacking, aggressive defense," Ryans responded. "I want guys to play fast. I want guys who are smart. I want guys who are going to play physical. That's one thing for me is just growing up, watching the 49ers play defense. The defense has always stood out here. This has been a defensive organization. They

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
