Tarell Brown talks Boldin, Harvin, Goldson and Revis

Mar 11, 2013 at 6:14 PM--


San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown was on NFL Total Access today and had the following to say during his discussion:

On what his reaction to the Anquan Boldin trade was:

"Excited. I think any time you get a player of that calibre, which played in so many big games and made so many big plays, is special. So it definitely helps our team out and we're looking forward to having him."

On the 49ers acquiring Boldin for a sixth round pick:

"That's crazy. Excited."

On how much more dynamic the offense is now:

"I think you have a guy that can play inside and outside. A guy that makes big catches. You see what he did in the Super Bowl as well. A physical guy. A guy that competes every down, every play so it will be a great thing, a great addition to our team."

On Percy Harvin to the Seahawks:

"I think it's a good move for them. I think Percy Harvin is a great player. He does a great job of being an explosive player on the field. You have to account for him wherever he is and you try to double team that guy so I think Seattle did a great job of getting him and it's definitely a battle with the 49ers going against Seattle every year."

On whether he expects Dashon Goldson back:

"I hope so. I think he is the heart and soul of our secondary. He does a great job of putting us in position to make plays. The thing about Dashon is you have to account for him. Y'know, guys are afraid to go across the middle when you have safeties like Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner."

On whether Derrelle Revis would fit in the 49ers' secondary:

"He might. I think so. Any time you can bring a player of that calibre to our team, i brings more competition back there. I think we have three good corners that's already there. The addition of him, that would help us out a lot. But, you also have to worry about the factor if his knee and trying to be healthy. So that's a big 'if' and you never know. The San Francisco 49ers will do what's best for the team and organization and we look forward to whatever they bring in."

On the "soap opera" that Revis would bring to the defense as far as competition is concerned:

"It's not that I don't want it. I think we have guys that have played a lot of ball and is doing really well in the secondary. You don't go to the Super Bowl without good secondary players. I think we've gotten there, we understand what it takes to get there, and we have the pieces to the puzzle. We just add a few more pieces to that puzzle and see where it takes us."

Both Alabama and Ohio State will hold their pro days on Tuesday, March 30. Both have top quarterback prospects entering the draft in Mac Jones and Justin Fields. Both players are considered candidates for the San Francisco 49ers, who last week surrendered several future draft picks to move from the No. 12 slot to No. 3 overall. With both pro days scheduled for the same day, the 49ers will split duties, per Peter King of NBC Sports. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are scheduled to attend Alabama's workout to watch Jones. Assistant general manager Adam Peters and a delegation of staff will attend Ohio State's to watch Fields. "Not sure I would infer huge meaning to that, but it could be significant," wrote King in his



"The more mad Jimmy gets, usually, the better he gets": 49ers' Shanahan and Lynch discuss Garoppolo's future

The San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by pulling off a massive trade moving from the No. 12 overall pick up to No. 3 in next month's NFL Draft. It is clear that the team is targeting a quarterback to—at some point—replace current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. It remains a mystery who that might be. Up until that point, team brass had verbally committed to Garoppolo being the quarterback in 2021, with the caveat that NFL rosters are always fluid. Garoppolo could very well remain with the 49ers through the upcoming season. That's the impression that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch gave while speaking with reporters on Monday. The two tried to keep Garoppolo abreast of the situation leading to the franchise- and draft-altering



49ers explain why they felt the urgency to trade up, and why it was worth the cost

Oftentimes, the type of move the 49ers pulled off last week when they traded up to pick 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft takes place much closer to the start of the draft, if not after the draft actually begins. So why did the team feel it was necessary to make the move over a month in advance, and why did it think it was worth the heavy price it paid to get it done? Call it a good old-fashioned case of fear of missing out. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan held a media session with reporters on Monday, during which they spoke about last Friday's trade that sent the 12th overall pick, a third-round pick in 2021, and two future first-round picks to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for pick 3. The timing of the trade caught the NFL world off-guard,

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, after the team's trade from last week moving from the No. 12 spot to No. 3 overall. Here is everything they had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Opening comments: General Manager John Lynch: "Hey everybody. Look, we thought it'd be appropriate to start, there's one thing different here for us. Our first press conference without one [Philadelphia Eagles senior vice president of communications] Bob Lange here with us. On behalf of [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] and our entire organization, just wanted to thank Bob. Bob had a unique opportunity to go home, be provided for him and
