Jed York says “report isn’t true” to near Harbaugh trade

Feb 21, 2014 at 3:43 PM--




The report that the San Francisco 49ers nearly traded head coach Jim Harbaugh to the Cleveland Browns for multiple draft picks has been sending "sending shockwaves through the NFL" as NFL.com's Chris Wesseling said. The story was broken by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio earlier today and he stated that the report was "per multiple league sources."

An unnamed 49ers source quickly denied the report. However, the Browns didn't exactly deny it when they released a statement about the report saying, "The team conducted an extensive coaching search, and explored several options." They were not exactly calling the report false and would not come right out and deny it.

However, now 49ers owner Jed York has spoken up on his Twitter account. Pro Football Talk remains skeptical.


The story gained traction fast and it will be interesting to read the media's take on the situation as they try to find more information about the report.

"I felt like we were close in some [trade] discussions, and then the decision was made to have surgery," general manager John Lynch said earlier this month. "That just brought things to a screeching halt." Now, everyone is waiting for Garoppolo to be healthy again. The problem is that many quarterback-needy teams have already made offseason moves to improve the position. A couple

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I
