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.

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays

During the first quarter and a half of the game, the Lions kept it fairly close, losing only 14-10, but the 49ers pulled away in the second and third quarters, leading 38-10 at one point. In fact, with just under six minutes remaining, the 49ers led by 24 points, but a collapse, influenced by multiple defensive injuries, gave the Lions a chance to tie the game, as they reached the SF 24 yard line down just eight points, but failed to score. After the game, George Kittle shared the lesson that he and the team learned from this surprisingly close win, speaking to the level of talent in the
