Ed Reed on 49ers’ radar?

Mar 11, 2013 at 3:43 PM--


Earlier today, Albert Breer of NFL Network reported that free agent safety Ed Reed had hired Athletes First to represent him.

Pro Football Talk went as far as to say that, per a league source, they feel that Reed will go to the San Francisco 49ers.

The 34 year old Reed was drafted in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft. He has been selected to nine Pro Bowls, was the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award winner, and holds the all-time NFL record for interception return yards, currently at 1,506.

Listed at 5-11 and 205 lbs, Reed had 58 tackles, 4 interceptions and a touchdown last season.

Michael Irvin once again backs 49ers legend Jerry Rice as the all-time greatest receiver

There was never any debate in the minds of San Francisco 49ers fans. Jerry Rice is the greatest wide receiver to ever step onto a football field. Randy Moss had a different opinion, which was enough for the former NFL receiver to grab some headlines and start some debate in December. During a conversation with Terrell Owens, Moss said he was the greatest, followed by Owens. Yes, Moss placed Rice at "third or fourth" on his personal ranking. Most laughed at the idea that Moss should be considered the best ever. One of the many who backed Rice for the title is another Hall of Fame receiver, Michael Irvin. Irvin did so again when asked about the greatest

Adam Schein of NFL Network recently ranked the NFL's top worst-to-first candidates. The columnist went division-by-division and examined last season's last-place finishers, ordering each of the eight squads based on their chances to win their respective divisions in 2021. The team with the best chance, in Schein's mind, is the San Francisco 49ers. With a relatively clean bill of health this season, he feels the Niners should be much improved. After all, it wasn't that long ago that head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad played in the Super Bowl. "The return of Nick Bosa, in particular, changes everything for the defense," Schein noted.

We'll start with the highest-ranked of the two groups — the receivers. Pro Football Focus has the 49ers collection of wideouts listed at No. 7. Much of that is due to the potential of the team's trio of playmakers — Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and tight end George Kittle. "The 49ers have built a dangerous group of playmakers; it's just a matter of keeping everyone on the field this season," wrote Steve Palazzolo. "Deebo Samuel has been used everywhere in this offense.

Fred Warner is a pretty good defensive back ... er ... linebacker. Wait a minute... Nick Shook of NFL Media published a ranking of the top 10 coverage players in the NFL from 2020, and one player seems to be out of place. Warner of the San Francisco 49ers is a linebacker. Everyone else on the list is a defensive back. The list was created using several advanced metrics. "We set a minimum of 300 coverage snaps and 40 targets to achieve legitimate volume among qualifiers," Shook explained. "Players also had to finish with a catch rate allowed that was below expectation, a negative targeted expected points added (a
