Browns, Bears, Jets express interest in Donte Whitner

Mar 10, 2014 at 9:50 AM--




Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle states that the Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, and the New York Jets are the three teams that have expressed the most interest in San Francisco 49ers safety, and pending free agent, Donte Whitner.

Branch also states that the 49ers are "still pushing" to retain Whitner.


Whitner signed with the 49ers in August of 2011. It was a three-year, $11.75 million deal with $4 million guaranteed. He has had 218 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 5 forced fumbles during his three years with the 49ers.

As is common with the 49ers, the team is unlikely to get into a bidding war to retain Whitner's services. If he hits the open market tomorrow, he will likely be gone.

Mary Kay Cabot, a Browns beatwriter for Plain Dealer and cleveland.com, confirms Cleveland's interest on Twitter.

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on
