49ers interested in trading for Jerry Porter?

Jul 25, 2006 at 10:07 PM--


According to the Pro Football Talk Rumor Mill, the San Francisco 49ers are one of seven teams that may be interested in trading for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jerry Porter. The other six teams include the Eagles, Packers, Bears, Patriots, Jaguars and Saints.

From Pro Football Talk:
We've heard from two different sources that the Oakland Raiders are willing to trade receiver Jerry Porter, if an interested partner can be identified. One source said that the Raiders discreetly have been shopping Porter for several months.

Porter was a second-round pick of the Raiders in 2000. He received a $7 million signing bonus in 2005, only a day or two before word broke of a trade that sent Randy Moss to the Bay Area.

Porter is scheduled to earn base salaries of $1 million in 2006 and 2007.

Porter would be an instant starter for the 49ers and would add to the rivalry when the 49ers play the Raiders on October 8th.

Update: 7/26/06

This article from ESPN reports that Porter does indeed want to be traded. However, it does not mention any teams that may be interested in the wide receiver.

Each week, I present the Golden Nugget Award to a San Francisco 49ers player who had an outstanding game or managed to defy the odds. Week 4's award goes to third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The other nominees for this week's award were quarterback Trey Lance for coming off the bench and displaying why the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to draft him, defensive ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa for showing dominance along the defensive line, and running back Trey Sermon for his 19 carries for 89 rushing yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Samuel, whose real name is Tyshun, received the nickname Deebo, the name of the notorious bully from the movie "Friday," from his father Galen, because he always took things away from people as a toddler.
