Broncos still trying to trade Lelie

Jul 24, 2006 at 12:59 PM--


Bill Williamson of the Denver Post is reporting that the Denver Broncos are still working hard to trade receiver Ashley Lelie. They want to accomplish this before the start of training camp.

The Broncos are looking to get help at running back and tight end. Draft-pick compensation could be part of the deal. Lelie's agent, Peter Schaffer, said there are seven teams interested in Lelie. The biggest obstacle in the deal is that Lelie will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

The 49ers made a push for Lelie prior to the NFL Draft. However, they felt that the Bronco's asking price was far too high for the receiver.

Brandon Aiyuk: I'm trying to maximize my role with the 49ers

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had a breakout season in 2021, his third year in the league. The receiver drafted a year after Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, hopes to have a similar leap in production. Aiyuk caught 56 passes last season, hauling in five touchdowns and a career-high 826 yards. However, it initially looked like the receiver's second NFL season would be unremarkable. He had just one reception for six yards through Week 2 and appeared to be in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house. Aiyuk's production picked up after that and exploded in the second half of the season. He had 10 catches for 201 yards in the 49ers' final two regular-season games. Last season, nearly 50 percent of his receiving yards came in his final six



Kyle Shanahan still expects 49ers to trade Jimmy Garoppolo but it's 'not a guarantee'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters for the first time since the draft. He stepped up to the podium after Tuesday's practice, the second of organized team activities. Of course, there was no shortage of reporters trying to pry quarterback information from the head coach, who did his best to limit his responses to such questions. That's likely because Shanahan knows how big of an offseason storyline the quarterback situation has become. Most expect second-year quarterback Trey Lance to be the starter, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers hoped to trade Garoppolo by now, but the quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 halted any trade talks. Shanahan has suggested that the 49ers would be willing to hold onto

Kyle Shanahan still believes 49ers can mend relationship with Deebo Samuel

Deebo Samuel isn't with his San Francisco 49ers teammates during organized team activities. That shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. These sessions are voluntary, and the receiver is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Head coach Kyle Shanahan remains optimistic that the 49ers can extend their star player despite Samuel asking to be traded this offseason. On Tuesday, Shanahan told reporters that he expects Samuel to be in attendance when the 49ers hold a three-day mandatory minicamp starting on June 13. Does the coach believe the relationship between player and team can be mended? "Yeah, of course I do," Shanahan responded. "I felt that last time I talked to you guys, at draft time. I feel the same, if not stronger." Has there been
