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.

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.
