Rumor: Ed Reed may end up in San Francisco

Mar 11, 2013 at 7:55 PM--




The San Francisco 49ers have already acquired one Baltimore Raven, trading a sixth-round pick for Anquan Boldin. They may be trying to acquire a second member of the team that beat them in the Super Bowl back in February.

Pro Football Talk has said that a league source with extensive knowledge of the current market for safeties believes that the 49ers could work out a deal with safety Ed Reed.

Reed has hired Athletes First to represent him in negotiations. Reed's new agent, David Dunn, also represents 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke.

Before Reed had an agent, he was unable to work with any teams prior to the start of free agency on Tuesday at 1 PM. However, he can now begin negotiations prior to the start of free agency.

While the 49ers are believed to be one of the teams in the mix for safety Dashon Goldson, it is becoming more and more unlikely that he will return to the team. The Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are assumed to be ahead of San Francisco in the race for his services. The $6 million owed to Boldin may have priced Goldson out of San Francisco. This may open the door for Reed to come to the 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.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when
