Sean Smith

According to Rotoworld.com, the San Francisco 49ers are among one of the teams interested in free agent cornerback Sean Smith. The other teams rumored to be interested include the Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Detroit Lions.

The Chiefs were interested in Smith, but agreed to a deal with cornerback Dunta Robinson yesterday. Rotoworld says that:

Robinson is believed to be getting starter money from the Chiefs. With Brandon Flowers also getting paid as a starter, giivng Smith top-of-market money no longer makes sense.

Smith has played four seasons with Miami Dolphins after being drafted by them in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He has had 211 tackles, 5 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles.

The 49ers are in need of some help with pass coverage, especially if the team loses safety Dashon Goldson to free agency. Another key need is along the defensive line to assist with the pass rush.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Maybe San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan should be very flattered. Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay was recently asked on The HelliePod how he hopes to address his team's running back situation now that his former featured back, Todd Gurley, is in Atlanta. He hopes to take a page out of his close friend and division rival's book. San Francisco had three running backs that rushed for over 500 yards last season, contributing to the league's No. 2 ranked rushing attack. Only the Baltimore Ravens, benefiting from the legs of quarterback Lamar Jackson, gained more rushing yards than the 49ers' 2,305. The Rams rushing attack ranked No. 26 in the NFL with 1,499 yards and were swept by

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle expressed some dissatisfaction with some of his ratings in the latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. His biggest issue wasn't narrowly being denied membership to the highly-coveted "99 Club" within the game, though. Kittle's biggest gripe seemed to be his breaking-tackles rating of 81, which tied for second on the team. "If Deebo (Samuel) has a higher breaking-tackles rating than me, that's just not okay," the tight end said. "It's Deebo, isn't it?" Yes. The second-year wideout owns a rating of 83 in that category. "Sure, whatever," Kittle added. "I think I led the

NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt ranked the top NFL trades from this unusual offseason. At the top of his list was the Houston Texans sending wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals, which will likely impact the NFC West for years to come. At No. 3 was the San Francisco 49ers' trade of defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick. The 49ers moved down one spot and then used the resulting selection on Buckner's replacement, Javon Kinlaw. One spot lower, at No. 4, is another 49ers-related trade.
