Team interested in Lelie; but Denver wants too much in return

May 18, 2006 at 5:09 PM--


Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the San Francisco 49ers are interested in Denver Broncos WR Ashley Lelie, but the 49ers are not willing to give up what Denver wants, either a first-day pick or a player of commensurate value.

Supplemental draft coming in July

Gil Brandt, of NFL.com, reports the NFL will hold a supplemental draft July 13. Rules of the supplemental draft stipulate that it has to take place at least 10 days prior to opening of first training camp. Draft order is determined by a weighted system that is divided into three groupings. First comes the teams that had six or fewer wins last season, followed by non-playoff teams that had more than six wins, followed by the eight playoff teams. The paperwork hasn't officially been filed yet for this year's supplemental draft, but there are at least two players who will get a close look from scouts around the league, LB Ahmad Brooks (Virginia) and DE Jason Berryman (Iowa State).

49ers had a third-round grade on George Kittle but gambled in 2017 draft, says Adam Peters

The San Francisco 49ers loved George Kittle as the Iowa tight end entered the 2017 NFL Draft. Did they know he would eventually become one of the best to play the position? Probably not. Did they view him as a fifth-round pick? No. If NFL teams redid that draft, there is no way Kittle would last beyond the first few selections. Back in 2017, San Francisco wasn't even sure he would make it to the fifth round. The team had a higher grade on Kittle but gambled by waiting to select the player who would eventually become one of the most entertaining young stars in the game. "I remember scouting George Kittle at Iowa when I was with the Broncos, at the time," 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters

No salary cap drop for 49ers, NFL teams in 2020, but next four years could be impacted

A report on Thursday stated that NFL owners were pushing to lower the salary cap for 2020 and 2021. The move was being proposed to offset any potential losses that may come from the absence of fans within stadiums. Instead, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has been pushing for the impact of any revenue losses to be spread through 2030. With many NFL rosters pretty set, a cap reduction this late in the offseason would have significantly impacted some teams. It doesn't sound like that will happen. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network is reporting that there will be no change to the 2020 salary-cap figure of $198.2 million. The impact of lost revenue will instead be spread out

Football Outsiders' creator, Aaron Schatz, joined Good Morning Football on NFL Network today and predicted that fans would see the New Orleans Saints facing the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Of course, this may be one of the most challenging seasons to predict, given the NFL's efforts to play football amidst a pandemic. Who knows what could happen or if the season will even begin? Assuming it does, and COVID-19 doesn't drastically impact rosters, why did Schatz pick the Saints over the San Francisco 49ers to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl? He discussed head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad after being asked to identify this offseason's "all-hype" team, about which Football Outsiders is a little worried. "We're actually a little worried about the
