49ers trade Dorsey for Dilfer

May 4, 2006 at 10:03 PM--


According to 49ers.com and the Mercury News, the San Francisco 49ers have traded quarterback Ken Dorsey and an undisclosed selection in the 2007 NFL Draft to the Cleveland Browns for veteran quarterback Trent Dilfer.

Coach Nolan has been saying all offseason that the team would target a veteran quarterback to back up and mentor Alex Smith.

Dilfer is a 13-year veteran from Fresno State who has started 107 games and won a Super Bowl during the 2000 season with the Baltimore Ravens. He has 106 career touchdowns and has passed for 19,352 career yards. His best quarterback rating (where he started more than 4 games) came in 1997 with the Tampa bay Buccaneers. He had an 82.8 rating that year and started all 16 games.

Dilfer has played for the Buccaneers, Ravens, Seahawks and Browns over his career.

“Trent was a player we had interest in last season,” Head Coach Mike Nolan said. “We were looking for a veteran quarterback with experience that could help mentor Alex Smith. Trent fits the bill on both counts and we are excited to have him with the 49ers.”

According to ESPN.com, the undisclosed draft pick that was traded along with Dorsey was a seventh round draft pick.

How much is Deshaun Watson worth? It wasn't long ago that the Houston Texans determined that he was worth $156 million to be the face of the franchise. If they don't rectify the situation with their young star quarterback soon, they may have to learn how much he is worth in draft compensation. Watson may want out of Houston after expressing some frustration with how the organization handles itself. Could head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers come calling? It would cost a lot, but it would also mean an opportunity to fix the mistake of choosing Solomon Thomas over one of the rookie quarterbacks available in the 2017 draft. And no, I'm not counting C.J.

It's the offseason. So why not speculate on what it might take for the San Francisco 49ers to land disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson? One suggestion by former NFL player Ross Tucker, during an interview on 95.7 The Game, was a little too wild for a 49ers wide receiver's liking. Tucker mentioned the 49ers' young pass-rushing star after being asked if anyone is untouchable in creating a tempting enough package to acquire Watson. "I would say Nick Bosa, but if you can get Deshaun Watson, I think even Bosa is touchable," Tucker said. "I'm sure they don't want to do it, and I'm sure they'd even rather give up picks, but as great as Nick is, if you get a chance to get a top-five quarterback in the NFL, you have to do it. "So I would say
