49ers, Cowboys and Browns call Wes Welker’s agent

Mar 8, 2013 at 9:10 PM--


Pro Football Central is reporting the 49ers, Cowboys and Browns have contacted wide receiver Wes Welker's agent. However, the New England Patriots currently have an offer on the table for Welker and that he would need to be "blown away" to turn it down.

Last season with the Patriots, Welker had 118 receptions for 1,354 yards and 6 touchdowns. He has played the past six seasons with New England.

The 49ers are expected to try and upgrade the receiver position via free agency or the NFL Draft in April. The team is in need of someone to compliment Michael Crabtree.

NFL and NFLPA reach agreement on 11-game suspension for Browns QB Deshaun Watson

NFL Network announced that the NFL and NFLPA have reached an agreement on the suspension of Deshaun Watson. Per Ian Rapoport, the Cleveland Browns quarterback will have to sit out 11 games and pay a $5 million fine. The 26-year-old player has faced 24 civil lawsuits from women accusing him of sexual misconduct and sexual assault. The off-field controversies started last year during his time with the Houston Texans. The Texans traded Watson to Cleveland on March 18, 2022, and the quarterback signed a fully guaranteed five-year, $230 million deal with his new team. Earlier this month, former federal judge Sue L. Robinson determined that Watson violated the personal conduct policy, imposing a six-game suspension. The NFL appealed the decision, seeking a lengthier

The Cleveland Browns have reportedly changed their tune. Depending on what happens with quarterback Deshaun Watson's suspension, the team will consider acquiring San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. "The Browns will consider acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo if Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension significantly increases upon appeal, league sources tell cleveland.com," wrote Cabot. It's worth noting that Cabot doesn't say the Browns are willing to trade for Garoppolo. That could mean Cleveland might wait to see if San Francisco releases its high-priced quarterback. Of course, her wording doesn't preclude the possibility of a trade. Cabot adds, "The Browns are awaiting the ruling of Peter C. Harvey, the



Rapoport: I don't get the sense the Browns are interested in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

We might quickly learn how much faith the Cleveland Browns have in quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Will they ride the 2022 season with the seventh-year quarterback, should the NFL force Deshaun Watson to sit out the season? Or will the Browns seek a different veteran quarterback? San Francisco 49ers fans are hoping for the latter. They're hoping for a miracle. Maybe, somehow, the Niners can get something in return for Jimmy Garoppolo and not be forced to release the former starter. The Browns might be the 49ers' last hope. San Francisco is waiting to see if any trade interest develops, but so far, there has been nothing to report. Teams just aren't interested in the 30-year-old quarterback. NFL insider Ian Rapoport doesn't believe the Browns are too



Should the Browns pursue 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo? Bucky Brooks weighs in

The NFL and NFLPA handed down an 11-game suspension on Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. San Francisco 49ers fans were probably hoping for a lengthier sentence, potentially sparking some trade interest in Jimmy Garoppolo. A season-long suspension probably would have generated some more urgency on the Browns' part. "We have a lot of confidence in [QB] Jacoby [Brissett]," Cleveland general manager Andrew Berry said on Thursday, making it sound like the team is prepared to push through the first 11 games with the seventh-year veteran helming the offense. While many view Garoppolo as an upgrade over Brissett, NFL analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't feel
