49ers one of the teams interested in Matt Hasselbeck

Mar 18, 2013 at 4:01 PM--




The Tennessee Titans released quarterback Matt Hasselbeck on Monday. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the San Francisco 49ers are one of a number of teams interested in the former Titan, Seahawk and Packer.


Hasselbeck, who is 37, completed 457 of 739 passes for 4,938 yards, 25 touchdowns and 19 interceptions over the past two seasons with the Titans.

After trading quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, the 49ers may be looking for a veteran backup for starter Colin Kaepernick. Right now, Scott Tolzien is the only other quarterback on the roster.

The 49ers tried to get Hasselbeck in 2011 after the lockout concluded. Hasselbeck chose the Titans over the 49ers.

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays



ESPN predicts 49ers' Kyle Shanahan as Coach of the Year based on NFL feedback

This could be an interesting year for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. He has just one winning record in his four seasons with the team. Many will argue that last season was a fluke. It was a six-win campaign marred by a historic number of injuries. The team had just come off a Super Bowl appearance, but the injuries completely transformed the roster by Week 2. Most expect the 2021 49ers to more resemble their 2019 counterparts than last season's version. And now, Shanahan has a new toy to feature in his offense—No. 3 overall pick Trey Lance. Lance won't start. That job belongs to veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance will see the field,

Some wondered if Dee Ford would ever take another NFL snap after a back injury sidelined the veteran pass rusher for all but one game last season. Today, Ford feels healthy, and he's ready to show everyone why the San Francisco 49ers surrendered a second-round draft pick for him in 2019. Ford's recovery this offseason has been a pleasant surprise, and the defender could be primed for a bounceback campaign. That's what ESPN's Nick Wagoner is predicting. "But Ford has slowly been rounding back into form in training camp, and showed his usual burst off the edge," wrote Wagoner as part of ESPN's most-recent Football Power

It's time to get some endorsement deals, right, Trey Lance? The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback appeared in an online advertisement with a Hall of Fame wide receiver and NFL legend, the one-and-only Jerry Rice. The ad features Lance traveling to meet with the NFL's greatest receiver of all time and Bay Area icon, throwing some passes to Rice, and eating some Chipotle. "Just got to be ready when my name is called," Lance told Rice when asked how he is feeling about everything. Lance is slated to be the backup quarterback to veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. No one really knows how long that will remain the case, though, as the No. 3 overall pick is destined to be Garoppolo's successor. The ad, which you can watch below, focuses on
