Day One Recap: Woodson, Dorsey scheduled to visit

Mar 12, 2013 at 8:56 PM--


It was a fast and furious start to the new NFL year. Free agency began today at 1 PM Pacific and, like last year, the 49ers didn't rush out of the gate. They let other teams scramble for the high priced free agents and, once the smoke cleared, started looking for quality players that they could get at a bargain price.

Signed/Agreed to Terms

None

Scheduled Visits

Free agent defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (Chiefs) is scheduled to visit with the 49ers.

Also scheduled for a visit is free agent safety Charles Woodson (Packers). Woodson will arrive on Wednesday.

Trades

The 49ers acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a sixth round draft pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The trade is pending a physical, which Boldin is currently unable to take part in because he is in West Africa on a relief trip with Larry Fitzgerald and Roddy White.

As expected, the 49ers completed the trade of Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chief. In return for Smith, the 49ers will receive a second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and a conditional pick in 2014.

49ers Lost

Tight end Delanie Walker has signed with the Tennessee Titans.

Defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will get a 3 year, $12 million deal with approximately $5 million guaranteed.

On The Way Out

Dashon Goldson is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are reportedly ready to offer him a contract that will average $8 million a year, which is overpriced for the 49ers.

Ricky Jean Francois is expected to join Sopoaga and sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Shown Interest

The 49ers are said to be interested in free agent cornerback Sean Smith (Dolphins).

The 49ers have shown interest in free agent kicker Lawrence Tynes (Giants) to replace David Akers, who the team released last week.

Other than Woodson, the 49ers are rumored to be interested in another pair of safeties. The first is Ed Reed (Ravens) and the second is LaRon Landry (Jets). Although, it was reported that the interest in Reed may have simply been a smokescreen.

The 49ers showed interest in free agent return man Josh Cribbs (Browns). However, he has said that his choices have been narrowed to the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals.

The 49ers are rumored to be interested in linebackers Lorenzo Alexander (Redskins) and John Abraham (Falcons). Alexander will make his decision on Wednesday and is rumored to be interested in the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals or Pittsburgh Steelers.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined the Rich Eisen Show on Monday morning and discussed the team's interest in Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers leading to the draft. Really, it was just the team doing its due diligence, but it was a hot rumor that made for some interesting discussion leading to the draft. "The exact truth is I didn't want to wake up the next day, on Friday, and see Aaron Rodgers, one of the best quarterbacks in this league, traded, without doing any due diligence on it," Shanahan explained to Eisen (h/t to Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group). "So I just called Matt and asked him if there was anything to it, and Matt told me I'd be wasting my

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Well, let's start with the first guy, OL Aaron Banks. He's bigger, 330 pounds, than what we normally think of when we think of a 49ers offensive lineman. What drew you to him and what about that size? Does he move that size well? General Manager John Lynch: "I think obviously you always want the guy that's big, that can move and is a scheme fit. And I think in this case, we believe that we found a candidate for that. We really grew to appreciate Aaron throughout the process. His film was
